5.0 out of 5 stars A bawdy, bodice-dropping, whip-cracking tale., 18 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts Mitzi Szereto takes the familiar story of the Bennett sisters and transforms it into an hilarious bawdy tale filled with laughs and lust at every turn. It manages to keep the romance between Elizabeth and Mr Darcy, and the character's personal kinks all seem to fit with their personalities. No mean feat!

It's well written too, which seems to be an afterthought for most erotica on Amazon, but not here. My partner and I read it to each other and enjoyed it immensely, we're now reading through Ms Szereto's other book: The Wilde Passions of Dorian Grey and enjoying that too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utterly useless for most people, 8 April 2008
This review is from: PHP Pocket Reference (Paperback)
I bought this book already knowing PHP but needing a quick reference to refer to for all the built-in functions (there's no way I can memorize them all!) so I could quickly look up the correct function to use. For that purpose this book is totally useless. Let us count the ways:

1. the function reference is not categorized (array functions, database functions etc) in any way, it's just a LOOONG list of all the functions in alphabetical order so you need to know the name of the function you're looking for before you even start looking.

2. No index, which could have made (1) slightly less of a problem.

3. Each function in the reference begins with the return type (string, int etc). Handy, but as these return types are all different lengths, and there's no padding to make the function names after them line up, you can't just scan down the page at the function names, you have to first find where the function name starts on the line. Slow slow slow. Would a bit of spacing really have hurt that much?

I get the feeling this book was thrown together in a very short time, with very little care and no thought put into its usability as a reference of any kind.

Stick to the online documentation if you're after the kind of quick reference this book should have been.
