DOWN FROM LONDON: Chasing the dream.  Stalked by a nightmare.
DOWN FROM LONDON: Chasing the dream. Stalked by a nightmare.
Price: £1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic page-turner! Loved it. Charming and funny., 7 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love this book. Found the protagonist very appealing; annoying but real and reminded me of elements of myself. Very funny as well! It was lovely to picture myself in the locations, being an ex-Whitstable resident, and a DFG (Down From Grimsby). It was also quite sympathetic to people who 'move down from London' but also clever in portraying the common 'oh, it's so 'charming' here' vibe that many 2nd 'hom-ers' exude when in 'quaint' territory. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not sure why I bought this..., 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Elements of Style (Paperback)
I'm not sure why I bought this. It is good. I bought it after reading Stephen King's 'On Writing' - an excellent book, which frequently referred to this book. I think I thought that if I bought it I would be like Stephen King: an excellent writer. I think I bought 'in' to the idea of achieving perfection from this book. "This book will change my life" I thought. It didn't. I read it once and shelved it. It's really tiny too. Did I mention that? A7 size.

These are great, although if you have a particular antsy dog, that hates having his facial hair trimmed, you can still accidentally cut them with these. Just be VERY careful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another too-small item..., 31 July 2013

Again, far smaller than advertised. It wouldn't fit my toy dog. Or my small cat. It's such a shame as it's very cute.

1.0 out of 5 stars It is FAR smaller than it states, 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my maltese dog - a tiny dog. But this was far tinier than expected. To her dismay, I tried to dress my cat in it. She is a small cat. Now she is a small and very angry cat. It was far too small for her too! I think it should be advertised as a ferret coat. It was quite long...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book - some parts hilarious - all parts are valuable, 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book to aid in my conducting qualification. It's quite an old book and it seems it provides the basis of many modern books on the topic. Some of it was hilarious: the part where the author states that "the only solution for 'offending' voice is to remove them" made my laugh. Who could get away with such thing in these times? Much as many MD's might like to...

Fantastic book. Invaluable.

I especially like the way the water trickles through the opening. It's quite soothing to watch. Very inexpensive but very well made.

2.0 out of 5 stars Smells of Wee... really..., 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oddly, this product smells of urine. I say that as a person who has sprayed it onto my freshly washed palm and sniffed.

Usually, when my dogs piss indoors (unfortunately they cannot resist the corner of my kitchen unit) I immediately clean it with bleach. I then use this product to remove the enzymes. I'm thorough. It always smells worse than before and the dogs continue pissing against the kitchen unit. Is this a joke? Did the post-man infiltrate my order?

Help!

How to Sing (How to play)
How to Sing (How to play)
by Graham Hewitt
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on vocal technique I have come across so far, 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a teacher of singing and voice production I have found this rather dated-looking book to be the best so far and have been recommending it to vocal students. It's no-nonsense and clear approach, with room for your own notes, and many helpful exercises beats any of the modern pop-technique books, or overly technical approaches which cost at least £30 a book...
