If This Is A Man/The Truce (Abacus 40th Anniversary)
If This Is A Man/The Truce (Abacus 40th Anniversary)
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Human Spirit, 14 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The human spirit is a remarkable thing. Yes this is a book about being in a concentration camp and surviving the Shoah but it is so much more than that. Primo Levi was a remakable writer and a man who had a real understanding of what makes us human. Painful but yet uplifting in so many ways. These books are amongst his finest works and I would recommend them to anyone. The only one of his works that beat it, in my opinion, is "The Drowned and the Saved"

Bought as a replacement for one which was only broken after 8 years of faithful service by squabbling starlings. Excellent product

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful storytelling, 10 Aug 2014

This review is from: Two Brothers (Kindle Edition)
I absolutely loved this book. I did not think, as some others, that it was stilted and overburdened with historical notes. I thought the threads of history were beautifully woven into the story of the people. Jews whose lives were thrown upside down by the Nazi regime. Rounded characters, interesting twists and beautifully written. Will recommend to my students, as further reading, when they are studying the holocaust.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Roche's back to their best, 17 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Speak (Audio CD)
First of all let me be very clear - l love the Roche's. First heard them in about 1980 and have loved them ever since. Therefore, I am used to their way of delivering their music so, if you aren't, be prepared to train yourself - the first time l heard them l thought - blimey! This new album is their best in ages. Their harmonies sound effortless but they aren't - they are very cleverly crafted. Pure joy. "The Anti-Sex Backlash of the 80's" is an example of their genius. Fantastic stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fab idea, 29 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hummbucker Electric Kazoo
This transforms your humble kazoo into an instrument which can take its proper place in your band's line up. If you have an amp with some effects (eg a Roland Micro Cube) then your Kazoo is a sound effect machine. We have great fun adding stuff to our tunes...Cheap - if you have the amp to use it with and fun. Personally I don't like the Kazoo which comes with this but the pick up works fine with my old favourites

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful voice; beautiful songs, 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yiddish Songs (MP3 Download)
If Yiddish songs are for you then this is a great album. Chava Albertstein is a wonderful musician and singer. These tunes make me laugh...and some make me cry and remind me of people now gone from my life. Enjoy the joy and melancholy that the minor key can bring
