Price: £10.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain, 2 Feb 2013

Something I hadn't seen on T.V. but thought I would be fascinated by. Brilliant acting and really grips, I imagine it displays a really good feel for the period.

A brilliant jacket with one exception, the zip is very light and fiddly. Such a shame on otherwise excellent jacket.

Buy it, read it, and never suffer from a hangover in quite the same way again. Amis at his best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better, 1 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not quite finished yet, but enjoying far more than 'State of Emergency'. Clearly a child of Thatcher, and following his normal approach of drowning the reader in minutiae, but it really paces along. Infinitely better than the TV programme.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for an ipod, 30 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Obviously the material on here is brilliant and the price is very good. However, it is recognised by itunes so I cannot load it onto my ipod which was the entire point of the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice thing, 30 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was posted promptly and arrived in very good condition. The picture on the advert doe snot do it justice, the colours are far more striking. A 60th birthday present for my mother who was exceptionally pleased.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for your gifted and talented, 27 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite this being the 'official AQA' text book it is extremely limited. I am always upset by factual errors (simple things about Churchill's places of education), but it is the lack of depth that is the real issue. Also, this was written before the first exam was set and subjects such as Heath's government (a recent 24-marker) are barely mentioned.

Useful for statistics on the economy until 1959, but should not be used in isolation. Although increasingly opinionated the Sandbrook's trilogy provide a much more thorough understanding for talented pupils.

Price: £10.39

4.0 out of 5 stars The renaissance made easy., 27 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is about time that this excellent documentary came onto DVD. Fry paces the story very well, and there is a real sense of the size of Gutenberg's achievement. Suitable for bright 12 year olds and older.
