Tess Of The D'Urbervilles [DVD]
Tess Of The D'Urbervilles [DVD]
Dvd ~ Gemma Arterton
Price: 5.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Brings the book to life, 30 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The acting in this is spot on; they have their characters perfectly, especially Gemma Arterton as Tess. They miss out some key bits of the book and they interpret the themes in a very simplistic way, but overall this was enjoyable and great for supporting my literature class!

4.0 out of 5 stars Her DVDs improve every time, 30 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The aerobics session is a bit more active and more creative than her previous fitness DVDs. She's still very chirpy and personable though. I like the 'boot camp' with the various weight exercises as opposed to another boxercise workout, which is less challenging.

2.0 out of 5 stars Still trying to work out why this is a classic, 30 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dune (Kindle Edition)
I know this is supposed to be a classic, and I usually love science-fiction, but I don't understand why this is so popular. The writing is very clichéd and melodramatic and there's a lot of talking and not much action. It reminds me of The Phantom Menace in the way that it goes on about politics and trading spices. The worst part is that it is filled with grammatical errors at the sentence level - so many comma splices!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant but depressing, 22 Jun 2014

I'm almost glad I discovered the ending before finishing this book because the hope would have been unbearable. You cannot help but be in love with Tess and feel anguish for everything that fate has in store for her.


A Doll's House

5.0 out of 5 stars More complex then it seems, 7 Jun 2014

This review is from: A Doll's House (Kindle Edition)
On the face of it, this seems like a feminist text about a controlling husband and a oppressed wife. Delve deeper and this is a very asuste critical commentary of the fixed roles we apply to both genders.


All My Sons (Penguin Modern Classics)

5.0 out of 5 stars My class loved it, 7 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's very satisfying to see young people so involved in a piece of literature. The text really had them thinking, debating and questioning.

Price: 1.83

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine writing, 7 Jun 2014

Muriel Spark is merciless in her writing - she keeps the reader guessing and questioning whilst the impact of the actions and images she writes keep on coming thick and fast.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly what I wanted, 5 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It arrived within the stated time (though not very quickly) and they had taken the care to package it with plastic, but it is obviously second hand as the eye has some marks on it that I can't get off and they failed to mention that it is on a string with a rubber plunger so that you can stick it to things, which isn't exactly what I wanted.
