3.0 out of 5 stars OK but dissappointed, 14 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not bad but reads more like an Ft WE article thanks anyway for your effort.
The book isn't well structured so if like me you want to dip in it isn't sufficiently clear
Fun but not top

3.0 out of 5 stars Only of interest if you live in the UK, 14 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a book for Brits who never cross the channel in their heads.
I live in Belgium and work in Luxembourg and am a British citizen so everything written in the book I know already.
Everyone here thinks if the UK wants to leave go for it - the littlle englander attitude of Mr Cameron etc is water off a european duck's metorphorical back.
I don't care much but living in the area of Luxembourg we don't have the class dicides betseen south Ken and the grotty parts of the north

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good but still arrogant back then, 14 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stormcock (Audio CD)
This is Roy Harper's best by far now over 40 years ago (1971 cf 2013)
Too much talent not used for too long and Jimmy Page is a better guitarist
I hope Roy makes some money now
Best


William Byrd - Masses for Four and Five Voices
William Byrd - Masses for Four and Five Voices
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars William Byrd Mass for 4 voices always sublime, 14 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have known this mass since 15 years old -sublime early english choral music along with Taverner, Tallis etc and who knows the recently deceased John Tavener may be up there with them in a few centuries, but I have some doughts.
This recording is very good even if nothing replaces listening in a cathedral or similar.
Tavener - Just bought his Christmas Proclamation including his well known "Song for Athene" - it is for for nice listening but between kitsch and serious choral stuff - like BeeGees in Kings College - Sorry in advance to those who I have may likely offended

2.0 out of 5 stars I am not 5 years sold!, 14 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't realise it was for 5 year old - my mistake but totally not what I wanted.
There was no indication that this was a child book - no critcism at all to the author who did a good job for small children

Please don't buy this dreadful book - it is cheesy and corny and about as erotic as a tin of baked beans - Aaaagh...

This is a very analytical book on the sonnets.
Good price and something to leave by the bedside table and return to again and again.
Excellent

4.0 out of 5 stars Some new light, 8 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For a woman that has been written about so much what is there left to say? I bought this after quite favourable reviews in the french press.
This book is intelligently written and informative: I can recommend
