3.0 out of 5 stars Moderately OK Toaster!, 4 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this toaster is highly rated by Which, and does indeed work well, it is a light weight object with slots so short they only just take a standard slice of bread, and will as a consequence not accept larger or different shaped slices. When it packs up we won't replace it with an identical machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early 18th Century Venice, 13 May 2014

Alessandro Marcello's 'La Cetra' concertos have afforded me many delights as a consequence of excellent performances by the Collgium Musicum with Simon Standage, and a fine Chandos recording.

This review is from: Baroque Guitar (Audio CD)
This charming and well-produced disc was made when Bream was a young performer already reaching remarkable heights. The selection of works matches the era both of Baroque and of early Bream.

5.0 out of 5 stars Among Haydn's Finest, 13 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This collection by the English Concert and conducted by Trevor Pinnock is a truly outstanding production - in my view, the finest available. Six discs in all and with informative accompanying notes, here is remarkable value for money!

Superb performances by two outstanding musicians who work together with intuitive and sympathetic precision. And a lovely selection of pieces contained in this 2CD collection.

This review is from: The Graceless Age (Audio CD)
A bit over-rated by reviewers, this solemn collection shows craft skills and emotional engagement. For me, however, the majority of its contents don't exactly endure in the mind.

This review is from: Printmaking (Hardcover)
I can't rate this book because it never arrived! The author, an old friend, died recently. He was a fine teacher as well as being a well-established artist.

This review is from: The Luminaries (Hardcover)
This big fat heavy and lengthy tome is of rich interest to those exploring new zealand life and lives in the 19th century. The astrological stuff though, can be a bit of a deterrent!

Light, quiet, efficient and beautifully designed, this small battery driven shaver does all it claims. Great for brief case, travel bag or bathroom cabinet, I'm surprised at just how good it is!

Butcher's Crossing (Vintage Classics)
by John Edward Williams
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Butchers Crossing, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This very well written, sad and depressing novel about tough times and bad practices in post civil war mid west America is a gripping and memorable read. For the richer read, I recommend 'Stoner' by the same author. (Those who have taught in universities in UK and USA will know the pain and also recognise that things have moved on a bit since Stoner's 1930s+ era)
