5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 15 Dec 2013

This review is from: Music for Remembrance (Audio CD)
Excellent. All the famous pieces.

Amazon requires fifteen words but what more is there to say? The CD is round and made of plastic.

Resisting Leviathan: The Case Against a European State (Claridge Blasts No.3)
Resisting Leviathan: The Case Against a European State (Claridge Blasts No.3)
by Philip Vander Elst
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Very concise, well written,, 15 Dec 2013

Years ahead of his time to recognise what's really going on. Of course Britain's state media, the Pravda BBC are 'lying by omission' about the EU, just like the Nazi German government didn't tell the German people about the concentration camps.

Drives me mad having watches that stop (wind ups) or where the batteries fail at a critical time.

I have another Eco Drive watch, it's brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light, powerful, well built...seems good quality., 15 July 2013

But who knows what we'll think in six months time.

Certainly seems robust, should be better than the Habitat thing which fell apart in all directions.

So far so good.


Victims of Yalta
Victims of Yalta

4.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding book, of course, a bit of a faded copy but that doesn't matter, 15 July 2013

This review is from: Victims of Yalta (Paperback)
A great shame this hasn't been re-written, a little more concisely, for the modern busy person. But it is a heart breaking story.

1.0 out of 5 stars Everything wrong with this thing, 21 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The main filter drops off inside, meaning dust and muck gets to the motor. Had to take it apart to sort that out. Then the retracting cable won't 'lock' meaning you end up with a clothes peg, to stop it winding back. Finally the motor burned out. This should have been tested more for the small detail.

Billy Ruffian: The Bellerophon and the Downfall of Napoleon
by David Cordingly
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars 'I never knew that' - you'll say it again and again. A great book, 21 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought I knew something of the history of the Napoleonic era but this stunningly clever angle, following the building of one of the great ships that took part in the Battle of Trafalgar, and which eventually brought the Adolf Hitler of the day, back to Britain in captivity, is a breathtaking read. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and fascinasting!, 21 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Regardless of whether you live in this town or even in the US, this is a fascinating, well researched insight into the growth of California and the people who emigrated there. They suffered harsh times and a very harsh climate to survive...but eventually prospered. Truly amazing photos, takes the reader back to incredible times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best jump out of your skin movie ever!, 21 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Woman in Black [DVD] (DVD)
Superbly composed Victorian haunted house drama, fabulous scenery, inside and outside the house. The more you watch it, the better it gets. DON'T watch if you have a dodgy ticker.
