4.0 out of 5 stars Pleased, 21 July 2011
I am pleased with this item - good for the price. The only downside - the real life planters are taller and narrower than on the pictures. The picture is obviously compressed and doesn't give 100% accurate impression. Otherwise - I am pleased.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring and badly written, 5 Jun 2011
This is a very poor thriller, with naive plot, cliched style, wooden prose and boring characters. Big disappointment, even as a holiday read.

"Dan Brown meets James Patterson meets Bourne"? Definitely not!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 5 Jun 2011
This review is from: Cambridge Blue (Kindle Edition)
Although not very engaging - this book promised some interesting turns somewhere in the middle. It was all ruined by the badly thought-through and badly written finale - what a disappointment. Overall - very avarage writing with hard-to-believe plot.

Excellent collection. All the best pieces. Easy to play for anyone from grade 2-3 - lots of fun for children who learn piano. Brings pleasure into hard work. Great!

I am very pleased with this item. Perfect size for DVDs, easy to fit under the TV on the wall, comes fully assembled - no problems. The delivery was speedy and very well packed. Just what I needed for all our DVDs. I already bought 6 of these shelves. :-)

3.0 out of 5 stars Very weak plot, 12 April 2010
This review is from: Avatar [DVD] (DVD)
It was one of the big cinema disappointments for me lately.
With all the effects and 3D, and battles - there is nothing to get excited about - the plot is so weak that right from the beginning you can tell how it is going to finish. Was board throughout the film - and no special effects could help it.
Giving it 3 star as visually it was interesting - but no visual effects can carry through the weak plot. Pity!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, 12 April 2010
THis is probably the best Russian film of its time - both in its approach to the tragic and sensitive topic of the WWII, in its casting and acting, in its camera work and director's interpretation. Tatyana Samoylova, who won in Cannes with this role, - is at her absolute best in this film - her character is complex and developing and we can see the changes that are happening to her in front of our own eyes. Brillant work of Alexey Batalov and the rest of the cast.
Cinematographically this film was quite a break through at the time - the camera work is superb - worth watching even just for that.
Overall - it is a timeless classic of Russian cinema - a must for everyone who is interested in Russia, cinema and WWII.

Very pleased with this item - stylish, well designed, small and fast.
Already had it through the washing (as you do!) - works perfectly after that. Recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun, 12 April 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Bought this for my son who is very interested in American political history at the moment. He loves the game - finds it enjoyable thought the options as I understand are somewhat limited. It seems a good fun for a younger player - I am not sure it would be equally interesting for an adult one. From my personal point of view I don't find graphics particularly appealing and accurate.
Overall - good game for those who has a parrticular interest in American political system and the beginners level.

5.0 out of 5 stars For all ages indeed, 20 Oct 2009
Oscar Wilde's fairy tales were one of my favourite books anyway. But now with the intelligent and loving introductions from Stephen Fry and with these sweet illustrations - they are even more precious. Thank you for this lovely book - a piece of art in itself. And thank you for another opportunity to enjoy heartbreaking but also so kind Oscar Wilde's stories. Will be a delight for children and adults alike.
