Lovely depiction of human feelings and frailness, also an insight into the richer political classes and how they are possibly detached from reality.

I love biographies and this one is entertaining and easy to read. Possibly inspiring to all of us who grew up in a similar environment of relative normality.

This review is from: A Journey (Hardcover)
Good, in places, at giving an insight into the man and his decisions. Unfortunately seemed a lot more contrived than these kind of biographies usually are.

Is it dated now? Maybe I just remember all the happy memories from watching it back in the day when it was on TV. Still makes me laugh and on those rare occasions when I need cheering up it always does the trick.

From a socio-historical perspective this is great for how things were for some people in the 1980s. A lovely romantic and dramatic story too.

....possibly getting dated now. Some more recent research on L1 impact on English learning also needs to be taken into conservation. However, this book is good for people taking a CELTA or Trinity and for introducing what can be expected from different L1 speakers from around the world.

The history of English helps us to understand the way the language is now. The accents and dialects in this book are good for learning more about different pronunciations and understanding more speakers.

Nice concert with good camera work and audio. It's nice to hear Adele chat between the songs, especially because I have never been able to see her live.
