Beowulf: A Translation and Commentary, together with Sellic Spell

by J. R. R. Tolkien

I can only comment on The Sellic Spell at the moment as I've only read that - but it is wonderful. Taking away the christian influence of the poem and delving into where the poem might have come from as a pagan folk tale. Really wonderful. I can't wait to get stuck into the poem now.

3.0 out of 5 stars Damaged item, how rubbish! Great book though!, 9 Dec. 2014

Bought to complete the set - but sadly the dust jacket is damaged. The good thing is that it's not going to affect the use of the book, but too much hassle at the moment to return it! NOT GOOD ENOUGH AMAZON!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Yummy, 30 Jun. 2011
So far I've only made salsa and the Adobado chicken which was SO soooo yummy in a fajita!! So, i look forward to making more from the book. Not sure why the person who gave this book a 1 star didn't like it, I think its a really well presented and helpful book with heaps of interesting recipes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite, 30 Jun. 2011
I fell in love with this book straight away - the look of it, the colours and photographs were fantastic. I have already made the rose petal ice cream (gorgeous), and the rose petal jam (trying to figure out how i'm going to use this, but its lovely!). And will be trying out the Baklava tomorrow. I loved it so much I got her other book Orient Express.

My only reason for not giving it a full 5 stars is that her directions for the cooking are not very clear - for instance with making the custard part of making the icecream - she does not describe clearly what to do, it is very very vague. Apart from that its great - if you are used to cooking then it won't be a problem, but if you are new to it, maybe start with a more idiot proof book first!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for someone who's never worked out, 1 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was very tough on the legs but at no point does the woman make sure to tell the student to do these movements safely. You could completely wreck your body with this!! I have dance training (not ballet) so i know how to save my back etc, but i was surprised there were no directions on how to safely do these movements.

Other than that - wow, good abs workout too!
