5.0 out of 5 stars A good read for all hoteliers!, 7 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was recommended this book by a friend (outside the industry) who thought I would like it - I did! It's rather cynical at times, but at other times, it really hits home. Some bits are quite funny; it is also very difficult to put down - that's probably the best recommendation for any book really.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very readable book, 26 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Great White Palace (Paperback)
I enjoyed The Great White Palace as a very readable book, and in its way informative. My only reservation is that it dwelt almost solely with the writer's tenure and for me would have been better if it included sections covering the history of the island, its inhabitants and building that the author had come, in his time there, to discover.

Private Eye Annual 2012 (Annuals)
by Ian Hislop
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, 23 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Never able to pick up the magazines each month, so find these annuals just the ticket. A 'Used' copy, but only very slightly, so perfectly fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Missed this series as was not living in the UK, but heard it was good and I haven't been disappointed. Very funny (if somewhat dry and a bit cringing in places!) with a big variety of actors.

1.0 out of 5 stars Page inverted - a pain to read, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pages 13 to 24 inclusive are upside down. The book has been bound incorrectly. Poor show, despite the nice pictures.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bit too waffley, 1 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do find that only a minority of the contents of this book are related to the title, as he just completely goes off on tangents a lot of the time. It seems like he is just trying to show how much information he knows on any subject, then tenuously tries to link it back in to `At Home' However, this is my first Bill Bryson book, so maybe they are all the same....

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, 30 Nov. 2010

With our Golden Retriever, I find it is best to use the Furminator just once a week, using another normal brush the rest of the time. Does take off a whole heap of fur!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good film, but not a new DVD, 28 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Slumdog Millionaire [DVD] (DVD)
Great film, but as I was buying it as a present it was a bit embarrassing to find I was not in its original shrink wrap. Maybe I misread something somewhere, but it was not a new DVD.
