Thank heavens that Nick Drake is now getting the recognition and accolades that he so richly deserves. It is such a shame that it came too late to save him. Truly Late for the Sky. Poor Mum - Molly Drake.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great record of a lovely waterway., 18 Sep 2013

This must surely whet your appetite to walk the newly restored Huddersfield Narrow Canal. It was worth all the effort and money that was spent in re-opening this once neglected waterway.

It is many years since I last read F Scott Fitzgerald. I had forgotten just how well he used the language. I am amazed that he is American!

As ever with Colin Dexter it has more twists and turns than a twisty turny thing - with apologies to Richard Curtis/Ben Elton!

This is a great way to protect your Kindle Fire, particularly when you are in a rush and throw it in a bag. It also looks good.


The Great Gatsby

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget the film, and just read the book!, 20 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Great Gatsby (Kindle Edition)
It is nearly 40 years since I first read Gatsby. It was a complete pleasure to re-visit it. It is often described as one of the great American novels. It fully justifies that billing and for those who may not have read it, I would urge you to do so, but please forget the film adaptations which, as is usually the case, do the story no credit. Luxuriate in Fitzgerald's use of language and revel in the Jazz Age with a society trying to come to terms with Prohibition and the aftermath of the 'war to end all wars'. Brilliant!
