3.0 out of 5 stars POINTY SLIPPERs, 12 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quality of slippers is good =as expected-as I know someone with the same. However they were not the RED as advertised but ORA ORANGE!! Kept them though as returning them would be a nuisance given that the delivery time was not too speedy. Really wanted the RED and one size smaller would have been preferable but this is minor. Nice slippers but disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gentleman sleuth!, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliantly-acted, and a good antidote to a busy day. The period of the time is perfectly conveyed and Michael Kitchen portrays an understated Detective with few words but penetrating facial expressions which say so much! I was left wanting more and sad that this was the last in the series. The location of the series (Hastings and South Coast) is very much a part of the charm evoking a less frenzied past, despite the mad period of wartime. I shall buy the earlier episodes!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant Fragrance, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite authentic rose fragrance, which is pleasing, but I wish the fragrance would linger longer! However I am not disappointed ---it is not cloying either. I purchased this unboxed and no cap at a reasonable price as I resent paying for unnecessary fripperies so thought this a good deal.


The Half-hour Allotment (Royal Horticultural Society)
The Half-hour Allotment (Royal Horticultural Society)
by Lia Leendertz
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.59

3.0 out of 5 stars A half-hour read., 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK....Nothing great or revolutionary here that the average busy person would not know already. I found the references to older more experienced gardeners somewhat irritating and immature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Notes on notes!, 17 July 2014

This review is from: Understanding Music (Paperback)
For professionals or amateurs, Antony Hopkins never fails to please his audience. As a broadcaster/Lecturer his approach was neither lofty nor patronising and the real pleasure of his remarkable insight into music shows itself in this lovely book. I can thoroughly recommend it.


The Nine Symphonies of Beethoven
The Nine Symphonies of Beethoven
by Antony Hopkins
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Beethoven for All, 15 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Every word together with closed score manuscript allowed me to hear each symphony in great and clear detail. As always,Antony Hopkins brought insightful depth into his analysis, together with his refreshing and 'unstuffy' views which became his style. I bought this book along with his Autobiography and his amusing Dictionary of Music in memory of him after his passing was announced a few months ago. He was a great Broadcaster (and a wonderful Lecturer---I was privileged to enjoy weekly Lectures when I was a student at the Royal College of Music ) and I felt he never fully had the public accolade he truly deserved. Read this book--and you will see why! His writing evokes his unmistakeable voice with it's rich intonations and brings Beethoven to life in a way that Academic or Layman will appreciate.
