5.0 out of 5 stars BOARDWALK EMPIRE - STORY ABOUT PROHIBITION, 3 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rhis is the first in the series of 3 (MAYBE 4). It is an intriguing take on the wealthy people involved in making money out of prohibition who live around the famous Boardwalk of Atlantic City The characters' emotional lives are intertwined in the story in a satisfying way. Of course there is a lot of violence as you would imagine. Steve Buscemi as the kingpin in the story and Kelly McDonald who belongs to the Women's Temperance Society, and whose husband is murdered by Buscemi's hanchmen plays the part of the woman drawn into Buscemi's life with realism.

A good story, one that keeps you asking what will happen next. You will long to see the second series too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Justice Kirby - Treatise on homophobia, 4 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Justice Michael Kirby is well known in Australia. He has been a driving force for human rights, especially applying to homosexuals, of which he is one. The book is very easy to read and has some good insights, especially his experiences in Zambia. Quite an enjoyable read, but for me, the best chapter which resonated was the last chapter about his relations and his relationship with his long time partner.

I recommend the book, you will learn a lot about Kirby.

5.0 out of 5 stars brain Plasticity - what a breakthrough, 10 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
THE BRAIN THAT CHANGES ITSELF:

This is a very interesting book which illustrates that the brain is not hardwired as believed up to now.One can relearn old skills and adopt new ones. It is easy to read, very accessible in fact. The chapter on love and sex was an eyeopener and every male should read this book.

Use it or Lose it is the maxim I feel!

There is nothing much to add to the fact I was very happy with the product. Bruch's Violin Concerto has long been a favourite of mind and I was pleased with the transaction. Thank you.


The White Divers of Broome: The True Story of a Fatal Experiment
The White Divers of Broome: The True Story of a Fatal Experiment
by John Bailey
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars White Divers of Broome, a swashbuckling account of life among pearl divers, 17 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The White Divers of Broome is not only about the English divers sent to Broome to dive for pearl shells, but about the whole pearling industry; the exploitation, the denuding of the coastline, why aborigine women were prized as divers in the early day, and the gamut of pioneers who plundered nature's bounty.

The pearl masters made a fortune, and many asiatics were used for this most difficult task. Then, due to the 'white Australia policy', asiatics were sent away and English divers with no experience of diving for pearls were brought out in their places, with dire consequences.

Broome and surrounds is a magical place and I found in this book much to delight

5.0 out of 5 stars Baba Yaga - a novel incorporating the myths of Baba Yaga, 17 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is fascinating. It is not hard to read, the author has a fluidity so it races along.

I did not know a thing about Baba Yaga, so the last part of the book which explains who and what Baba Yaga stands for, a Croation, Serbian maybe Russian myth about someone, could be a man, but mostly a woman, an old hag, a mad woman, a witch etc, which pulls the book together very well. It certainly is unusual and entertaining.

I would like to read a lot more of this author's books.
