Roberts DREAMDOCK DAB/FM RDS Digital Stereo Clock Radio with Dock for iPod and iPhone
Roberts DREAMDOCK DAB/FM RDS Digital Stereo Clock Radio with Dock for iPod and iPhone

2.0 out of 5 stars It's going back, 2 April 2015
It's going back. Such a lovely compact design, but it has the following faults:
1. the display is far too bright, even on the dimmest setting, and we have had to cover it up at night to get any sleep
2. the alarm often loses the DAB, and instead wakes us up with a high pitched beeping
3. it frequently loses the DAB signal and is then off air, only solved by pressing the on and off switch half a dozen times.

Interesting selection of individuals for the portraits and intriguing how much overlap there is in their choice of favourite Burns' poems.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too distracting, 4 Jun. 2012
This book is beautifully produced, with lovely high quality illustrations, thick smooth paper and very good binding. Unfortunately, the author's style of combining her own life events with those of Mrs Delany was not for me. I found it distracted from the very interesting tales of Mrs Delany and her varied circle of friends and acquaintances. The sexual references in the descriptions of the paper flowers were too over the top for me, and I gave up about half way through.

Family Roundabout
Family Roundabout

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a discovery, 8 April 2012
This review is from: Family Roundabout (Paperback)
What a find this book is. I loved listening to the Just William stories with my sons and came across this book through a very literary blogger.

It is a witty description of the interwoven lives of two very English families of a certain type and class between the World Wars.

Not a word is wasted, and although there are several sad events during the novel, it is witty and thought provoking throughout. Just a pity that not many of Richmal Crompton's fiction intended for adults is still in print.
