5.0 out of 5 stars Good and fast service, 25 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Came in about 3 days, works very well as a VM on Mac running Parallels, think I may get another one as you can only have 1 license for each MAC address (I think) so it can't be deactivated, at least that is my understanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 26 Jan. 2015

Didn't think I would get beyond a couple of chapters but JB is a very talented writer. You don't have to agree with her to enjoy the book, so do persevere and ignore the uncomfortable bits if it helps you get to the end, which is worth it.

Master story telling and amazing that although fictional it is presumably what really happened and had made me interested to read more about it from the original sources.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 6 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Read first by my son (as a hardback). I got halfway through to the death of Prokofiev and had a break. As son returned book to Library I decided to buy a kindle version. Fantastically well written - to keep an audience interested he really knows how to do it. Now all I need is a notebook to write down new ideas for listening and further reading on history or composers lives. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works fine, 29 Nov. 2013

No problems with this. Arrived in a few days and took about 4 hours to charge fully. Have since used it to charge up iPhone and ipad, a very useful tool to take with you if you think your phone or pad will run out of battery.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not working with iPhone, ok now but be patient, 25 Nov. 2013

Pleased when I first got them, as worked and paired fine on my iPad. I then tried to pair with my iPhone but it can't connect, no idea why. There is no model number I can find to look for support so am stuck until I find my manual on how to setup the connection again!

Will be happy to update this to a better rating once it is working.

It took several goes at switching phones off and on till it suddenly recognised them so I was able to pair. Improved rating to 3 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars You can learn a lot of history from this book, 7 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only marked down because of the constant use of 'he' for Thomas Cromwell, try to ignore that and you are in for a treat with this period vividly brought to life. Much better than history text books, not sure how accurate though it all is but very absorbing and well structured.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written but 2 dimensional in parts, 15 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Characterisation and story all very readable, though after a time it became a bit like a soap opera, and not subtle enough. Too much smut and sex, there were finer qualifies that could have been portrayed with more emphasis like the social worker but overall this is high quality writing, even if it leaves a bitter taste.
