5.0 out of 5 stars Age does not weary, nor the years condemn., 3 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Every sentence is a poetic gem. The ideal book to take when you travel as it doesn't matter if you lose the place - every sentence stands rereading.
The plots always satisfy with endings often unexpected but perfect.
The relationship between Bertie and Jeeves is perfectly pitched. Bertie's perpetual optimism and utter lack of perception that he is being controlled and manipulated by Jeeves are drawn with just a few words but convey everything with just a raised eyebrow or well placed adjective.
Buy this book and enter the wonderful world of Jeeves and Wooster - you won't be sorry!

4.0 out of 5 stars ALL YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT THE FOOD YOU EAT., 28 April 2013

Once you start browsing through this book you won't stop!
It illustrates almost any food plant you can think of together with a description of its habitat. I have bought several copies of this book over theyears and whenever I lend it to someone I never seem to get it back.

5.0 out of 5 stars the english orphans, 10 April 2013

This Victorian morality story is excellent - it compares well with the queen of "Sunday School" stories, Mrs O F Walton. I have read more than 400 British books of this genre and this is the first apart from Uncle Tom's Cabin. I recommend it. It is easy to read and provides a real insight into society at this time. And what's more, its free!
