This proved a good buy,we enjoy this kind of music as it can be played while doing other things than just listening.It is cheerful and well presented,I would certainly recomend these discs to most folk needing background music say while driving or doing the odd computer work.Somehow I found that the music blocked out all other noise from the room!

Certainly worth the money!!One gets a load of music ideal as a back ground helping to make one relax while doing a certain amount of computer work.As the discs are so varied there definitely is something for everyone who enjoys classical music.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is great book if you really have no idea where you would like to go.Leaf through it,and judge your money re your holiday wish list.This manual being a taste of so many desinations does not give great detail of any one place or area,hence I would feel it nesessary to get some more info.beore I did the final booking.'100 Countries 5000 Ideas' itself is really a good coffee table book and would soon bring people together for conversation as to where they had been and where they would want to go next.The only thing I would add is to say that it is very much written for the American market and their requirements,likes and dislikes.Of course it cannot go to great rhetorics about foods and ways of cooking,but I am sure a travel agent would be the person to question on that matter.The illustrations and maps are very helpful and certainly give one the idea of the places.

One of the best books I have read since 'Three Cups of Tea'.The book is well written and most informative about Afghanistan and the Taliban.The way the author writes about women and their rights or more to the point their NON rights.It is gripping without being a horror or a scarry book for either the young or old.It also shows how one can start a business up in adverse conditions,and achieve hights never thought of in a country where women are very down trodden.Also the family is a very importent part of the existance of folks in this very poor country.

This is a good easy read ideal for holiday reading.I enjoyed each chapter,wondering what the next will bring.I am sure there is a certain amount of truth in the tale,as the occupation could not have been a bundle of roses for anyone.It touches on various war time hardships,such as making the food allocated go round using self grown or wild crops found in the hedgerows.When reading a book of this nature it makes one think how life has changed from when there were no such things as mobile phones,and how cut off people must have felt without even a radio.If you are one of the folk living during the second world war it is certainly an interesting read bringing back all manner of memories.

This review is from: Live In Concert (Audio CD)
This set of discs are by far more enjoyable than the other disc I bought of his at the same time.The way the music is put together is far better to listen to or use as background music while working on the computer or even doing the mundane things like housework or cooking.When I buy CDs,I buy them because I think I would like to keep them to use in the car or in another room of the house.Hence to download music does not suit me as I hate wearing cans on my ears all the time or have special devices in all the places where the 'iplayer' can be docked.Coming back to the set of discs this was certainly a worthwhile spend and will give a good few hours of music of a non demanding type.

I was terribley disappointed with this record.The standard of the recording is so poor that I have put it into the box for the charity shop where perhaps someone will enjoy it more than I do.I knew before I bought this disc what was on it,and I thought it would be fine even if only for background music while I am on the computer,but because of all the stops and starts between pieces it proved disruptive rather than soothing.I have noticed before Andre Rieu discs are a little lacking in character,a bit like 'lift' music.But I am sure these discs have a purpose in life but are just not my taste.

Typical holiday reading.This book really does not make you think very hard,except to say the names of the people involved are somewhat too complicated and of course are mainly French.To me there were too many participants. Therefore making it more difficult to follow particularly once one has put the book down and picked it up again at a later time.I do feel the book is far too long for what is a fairly simple tale of intrigue by the local Mayor who is just anti English cooking,when he hears about an English couple buying the commun's restaurant.But the 'entante cordial' lives on eventually!

Having finished this book I feel as though I have just read the goings on within a local estate in the village.It is a well written book which to my mind would be a good story for a foreign student learning English to read, as they would then understand the way of life here plus the language.The story,is not exciting or demanding,but very full of the style of a farm family with the odd happenings such as the affaire that the farmers wife has after living a somewhat hum-drum existance,looking after her children.The "Times" crit saying that the book has Chekhovian way about it is very true,and in consequence one does not feel,for heaven sake let something surprising happen.May be the last two chapters are there for those who cannot do without major upheavals.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is very well presented and really easy to follow for someone who is just commiting them selves to digital photography.I do not think I have ever read an easier to understand book on the subject.The book on photography for 'Dummies' is far harder to come to term with as their authers always seems to think you know stuff so they gloss over information that you either need reminding about or never knew in the first place.The Canon EOS 60D is a great camera,but of course a bit daunting because of all the buttons and knobs.But with this book the auther makes it so easy that learning is no chore,only a pleasure.
