5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful!, 12 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A much softer light than the modern LEDs - gentler on the eyes, but equally bright - for all those who like a more traditional look to their Christmas tree!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic indeed!, 20 Mar 2010
This book is far more than a record of '7 years in the life of...'. Chris Alexander has resisted the urge to make this a book about him and his experiences, but has instead allowed us to 'use' him as our introduction to the remarkable people, history and city of Khiva. There is a huge wealth of information, historical, agricultural, architectural, psychological and so much more, but all of it presented so artlessly and vividly that you feel that you have been there and seen it with your own eyes, rather than 'merely' read about it. I laughed, cried, groaned and learned - but, most of all, the book left me wanting to go to Khiva and see it for myself; I can think of no higher praise.
