Sharon Ultrathin Aluminium Cover Case with QWERTY Keyboard for Apple iPad Air/iPad 5
Sharon Ultrathin Aluminium Cover Case with QWERTY Keyboard for Apple iPad Air/iPad 5
Offered by Leicke Distributor Germany
Price: 29.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent piece of kit at a reasonable price., 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is nicely made and fits my iPad Air perfectly. The keys are easy to use and the battery seems to last well. My only niggle is the slighttly fiddly on/off switch - perhaps unsurprising as it has to be flush with the surface. The slot holds the iPad perfectly. The keyboard fits tightly to the iPad to make a case. Connecting it the the iPad was easy.

Persian Fire: The First World Empire, Battle for the West
Persian Fire: The First World Empire, Battle for the West
by Tom Holland
Edition: Audio CD

5.0 out of 5 stars Proper narrative of the Persian Wars, 2 Aug 2011
The inimitable Tom Holland provides a treat of accessible ancient History with this book. He provides a brisk narrative of the rise of the Persians and the Greek efforts to keep them out of Greece. The people involved come out as people not just the names we learnt at school.

I was hoping for slightly more analysis at the end as to why these wars created what one now percieves as the ancient division between East and West. He tanatalisingly makes the point without really following it through, mererly rounding off with a description of what befell the protaganists, both people and Nations.

Nonetheless a jolly good listen on a long car journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Tourist Map, 20 April 2011
Ideal for a city centre visit. shows nearly all streets and most of the restaurants and hotels you want to go to in the city centre. very compact format means it can be kept in bag or pocket and does not need lots of folding/unfolding. An excellent product - I hardly looked at the other (larger scale) maps we took along.
