On Bullfighting (Yellow Jersey Shorts)
On Bullfighting (Yellow Jersey Shorts)
by A. L. Kennedy
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Balancing on a pinhead, 24 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A notable attempt to explain Tauromaquia to a culture which will never accept it. The quirky twisting of the strands of Kennedy's disasterous personal life, physical and psychic pain, with the technical information on the art and telling historical anecdotes makes for a fascinating tapestry which I felt explained the world of the bulls much more satisfyingly than Hemingway's Death in the Afternoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unputdownable.....literally., 24 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ignorance of Blood (Hardcover)
The culmination of Javier's time as Inspector;Jefe in Seville is tour-de-force as Javier and Consuelo struggle to keep what they have rediscovered in tandem with the denouement of Javier's relationship with Arturo. Crime fiction cannot possibly be written any better than this.


The Villa of Mysteries (Nic Costa)
The Villa of Mysteries (Nic Costa)
by David Hewson
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, 24 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very happy to resume the trail of Nic Costa and while Villa of Mysteries comes up some way short of A Season for The Dead all of my favourite characters and traits were there....Rome in all it's quirky glory, the crazy pathologist, the wiser older tec and the ingenuous Nic. I have already read some of the later episodes and are happy to say that they retain all of their charm.

3.0 out of 5 stars Thought Provoking, 24 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I must say that I found Rohl's arguments for the errors in chronology persuasive and compelling but felt that he let himself down and jeopardised a wider acceptance of his theses by attempting to force through his "discovery" of Joseph's tomb. It and Legend are works which I enjoy returning to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding., 24 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Falcon [DVD] (DVD)
As an enormous fan of the Falcon books and Seville I always knew that it would be impossible to telescope the 60-odd years covered by the Blind Man of Seville and the labyrinthine twists of the Silent and The Damned into two 90 minute tv episodes. However the writers and directors have made a fair fist of it and Marton Csokas is excellent as Javier and the city seduces as it always does.

Edition: Paperback

A very useful guide to eating out with great recipes, although you have to be careful as it is now a little out of date.


The Sicilian Vespers: A History of the Mediterranean World in the Later Thirteenth Century (Canto)
The Sicilian Vespers: A History of the Mediterranean World in the Later Thirteenth Century (Canto)
by Steven Runciman
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, 26 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is still the definitive work on this period of Mediterranean history. The author's erudition and humour leap off every page and one finds one's knowledge of Spanish, Italian and Byzantine history increased as if by osmosys. A fabulous tapestry of a fascinating world.
