5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable guide for local historians, 17 July 2011
This review is from: Old Title Deeds (Hardcover)
A very clear and useful guide to the subject. Anyone researching their own family history who comes across old title deeds will find it invaluable. Recommended to me by an archivist I has no hesitation in passing on the recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic BBC drama, 9 July 2009
Wonderful to have a record of these excellent BBC productions of some of Trollope's best work. Donald Pleasance is outstanding as the Warden and contrasts beautifully with his worldly son-in-law, played by Nigel Hawthorne. Geraldine McEwan's Mrs Proudie is a tour de force and Alan Rickman plays the hateful Obadiah Slope (the role which launched his career). Fascinating to see David Tennant shine in a small but telling role as a vacillating clergyman in 'He Knew He Was Right'. The third drama, 'The Way We Live Now' provides a Victorian parallel with our own times. Costumes and settings are all beautiful and the quality of production very high.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Flavour of Sicily, 9 Mar 2009
This is another in the excellent series featuring the idiosyncratic detective Inspector Montalbano. Camilleri evokes the scents, the landscapes and the people of Sicily and combines this with cleverly devised murder stories. The inspector loves his food and the descriptions are mouthwatering - do not read with an empty stomach.
He is also excellent in conveying the complicated interpersonal relationships in the towns and villages of Sicily and the importance of local knowledge. The book is entertaining and I am sure that the translation serves it well. Once you have started this series you will want to read them all.
