3.0 out of 5 stars Get through the first bit and you'l'l be fine., 2 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Miniaturist (Paperback)
This book is a bit slow to start with but if you can get through the first 100 pages (my personal criterion) it's worth it. The final denouement I found was not entirely satisfying, but all in all, quite compelling - a good read and gives an excellent view of late C17th Amsterdam.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a size 10 so the size 10/12 was a little too large. However I can wear it quite comfortably. Also the poly/cotton mix - 70% polyester - I had expected a higher cotton content, but having washed it a couple of times the fabric is softer now. It was good to find a nightdress, rather than a nightshirt, at a good price

4.0 out of 5 stars Very funny, 23 Jan. 2014

This DVD is great fun, and evocative of the time in which it is set. Richard Griffiths turns in an excellent performance and the supporting cast play off each other with great accomplishment.

This review is from: The History Boys (Paperback)
Alan Bennett's writing is witty and elegant at the same time. His delineation of character is excellent. Although I had seen the DVD some years ago, I bought this text to help tutor Year 10 students.

This review is from: Eloise (Paperback)
This was a book prescribed by my local book club, but none of us thought it was brilliant. It is an OK pot-boiler, but I wouldn't recommend it, nor would I be keen to read any more work by this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bought as a gift, 23 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Flying Pig (Audio CD)
This kind of music is not my thing, but I bought the CD as a gift and the recipient was thrilled to bits with it. However, there seemed to be some kind of glitch with the despatch, as I received an email from Amazon to say it had not been despatched when it should have been, but it did arrive a couple of days later, so all was well.

3.0 out of 5 stars A conservative anthology, 14 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is what it says it is - 100 Favourite Poems - but mostly chosen, I think, by people who do not read much modern poetry, therefore a little unimaginative. However, it will keep its place on my bookshelf.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why a set text?, 22 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as I tutor school students, and one was studying this text for GCSE. Reading the book was no hardship but why it was chosen as a set text, I have no idea. I could have suggested many other books with more interesting plotlines/settings and vocabulary. I have not see the film but the student had, and said the film was better than the book. That has to be a first!

It was the first time I had purchased a used book via Amazon, and I was very satisfied with the condition of the book and speed of delivery.
