4.0 out of 5 stars Great paintings from Nelson's and O'Brian's worlds, 10 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good book, my only criticism was that there was art included from other painters. I bought the book for the pictures but the text was really illuminating, explaining exactly what ships are shown and why. I really liked the large format and the design element of enlarging key parts of pictures on many pages. Very good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Menorca walkers, 10 Aug. 2014

Excellent map made in a very durable material which is very good if you use the map a lot. New additions on Cami de Cavalls make it even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic O'Brian, 6 Dec. 2013

This review is from: Post Captain (Paperback)
All the Aubrey Maturin series of novels are really first class fiction. Like several of the novels, this one has less about the sea and more about Jack Aubrey on land which, whilst a nice contrast, is less absorbing than 'Lucky Jack' at sea; nevertheless a very good read.

J. R. R. Tolkien: Author of the Century
by Tom Shippey
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for those who want to find out why Tolkien wrote the way he did, 6 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really well written and incredibly informative, I learned a great deal about one of my favourite authors. In particular it is the other literature and how they helped shape Tolkien's own thinking that were really well developed. Lots of academic detail but not too much for the reasonably serious fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what I hoped it would do, 6 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not the most fantastic piece of kit but it is a very useful one. The sound quality is pretty good and the power output is fine for a medium sized room. Setting up was quick and easy - no problems at all. For the price, very good value.
