4.0 out of 5 stars Battery for Dell Inspiron 1545, 23 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this battery for my Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop, hoping it would be ok. It's about £80 cheaper than the Dell battery, which is tempting. One of the reviews says that it doesn't fit like the Dell battery, which is true - it does stick out a bit at the back. But since I mostly use my laptop at home, that's ok. Other than that, I would really recommend this - not only is it amazingly cheap but it also has much better battery life than my original Dell battery. It arrived really quickly and it's really good - I'm very pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mitfords Girls and the Twentieth Century, 27 Sept. 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has to be one of the most enjoyable biographies I have read for a long time. Although it's not a short book, it makes easy reading, written as it is in Mary Lowell's delightful style that is strongly reminiscent of Nancy Mitford's books. If you know her books, you'll love it for the insight into her life behind the books, particularly the girls' fascinating childhood; if you don't you'll be intrigued by the ups and downs of the family fortunes and their friendships with notable figures from Hitler to the Kennedys. This book is not just a biography of a famous and remarkable family, it is also a panoramic view of the history of the last century. Whatever happened, a Mitford was there - the war (both in Germany and Britain), the Communist movement, and so much more.
Reading biography is almost as much an art as writing one, in the way each reader relates personally to the characters with whom they become intellectually involved, and in the reading of this book it is easy to become very involved indeed and, unlike many biographies, it does not seem to fade away towards the end; Mary Lowell's writing retains our interest right until the close.
