1.0 out of 5 stars Disappionting and overly long. Needed a tight edit., 17 Oct 2014
Disappointing book. Most of which has been covered before in numerous books or on the internet. Needed a tight edit and reduced to perhaps 250 pages maximum. Author seemed dismayed that we actually didn't let the Soviets have them all instead. What a different world we would be living in if that had happened.

1.0 out of 5 stars "Must try harder next time" though hopefully there won't be a next time!, 29 Sep 2014
As with so many others I was very disappointed in this effort. At school one would have got a "must try harder next time". Though I hope there is not a next time. I have read most of Agatha Christie's books over the years and many of them more than once. This concoction will not be gracing the shelves of our library. I am surprised it passed muster at the Agatha Christie headquarters.

5.0 out of 5 stars As the Allies lost 3 times as many soldiers as the Germans it is had to understand why they claim it as a great victory. But for, 16 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having traveled along almost all the Western Front over the past 35 years this book opens ones eyes to information long since buried and ignored by so called War Historians. As the Allies lost 3 times as many soldiers as the Germans it is had to understand why they claim it as a great victory. But for America the Germans would have won in 1918. And the world might be very different today?

1.0 out of 5 stars BUT DOES IT HAVE SUB-TITLES?, 21 Aug 2013
I will happily re-rate these DVD's if someone confirms it has subtitles. Have seen the series on TV, WITH sub-titles and the series is brilliant. But without subtitles it is unsalable to us at least.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misinformation from the master, 17 Feb 2013
This review is from: Africa [DVD] (DVD)
Once you hear Attenborough make the ridiculous statement that Africa is now 3.5 degrees warmer in the past few years you know this DVD is a bummer. There has been NO warming anywhere for over 20 years. There is no such thing as Global Warming and Climate Change. The World goes along its merry way and nothing mankind can do will change it.
Even the BBC had to delete Attenborough's claims in the past few days from broadcast versions of the programme. Read up on Lord Monckton instead for a balanced view of of the World Weather.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Bio I have tried to read in years, 31 Dec 2012
The cover claims that 5000 letters and documents were read. Somehow I doubt it. It is just Agatha's own auto bio cobbled together with hearsay and trivia. As a previous writer said Hack is a great name for the scribbler. The fact he did not check English spelling usage is unforgivable. Spend your hard earned cash on Agatha's own book and enjoy. Hack starting the book with the 11 missing days, says it all. The fact he had written other bio,s tells me one thing. He is a non starter. My copy is in the rubbish bin already! English for trash can in the US.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Viewfinder is a great boon, 19 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife and I have recently spent a long holiday in Europe. I was using the first A1200 bought last year and she used a camera without a viewfinder. After a few days we downloaded both cameras to our laptop. What a difference the A1200 had superb photos and the other had numerous hit and miss pictures because of the screen only view. In bright sunny conditions it was a case of point and shoot and hope for the best. Where the A1200 won hands down was inside shots of castles and chateaux etc. Result was the more expensive camera was packed away and the A1200 came into its own. On returning home I found the A1200 no longer available in Australia so turned to Amazon and bought a new one from their Marketplace.Postage was a bit steep, but we now aviod the hit and miss of the other style cameras. Finding a small camera with a viewfinder is very hard these days. Another great plus with the A1200 is that it is pocket sized and light and you really forgot you have got it with you.

1.0 out of 5 stars When will Attenbore ever retire?, 12 Dec 2011
Little wonder that most countries that bought this series refused point blank to buy the last episode. Attenborough pushing the climate barrow a step too far. The endless 'propaganda' by Attenborough and his ilk flogging the completely failed science of climate change to all and sundry, without letting a single voice get a word in edgewise to squash the myth once and for all.
