I will be buying several copies when the printed version appears to give to all my friends. This book will appeal to anyone capable of feeling moved by the intensity of a mother's love and suffering. It is the Pieta in print. Tragic and beautiful. It is truly the most moving and frightening book I have read for many years. I hope it will soon be an A level text. The quality of the writing is astonishing without drawing attention to itself. She knows just what buttons to press in the reader and raises important issues about the role of the press and the police in the modern state.
This is good for A level students who need help thinking about the text. It covers all the assessment objectives it can and does what it claims. I just wish more students would read the texts, not these notes.
After 20 years, how does it feel? Dated, my dear, terribly dated! But fun and funny in places. All terribly PC. It says nothing interesting or new about the human condition and wont last, except as a marker in cultural history. Writing tricks very derivative. Multi discourse etc.

This is not terribly informative, but that is inevitable. Perhaps you will see how easy it is to do this with a ipad or, as with me, a Samsung tablet. Have a go! My first time, so please excuse the amateurishness.
In general, very useful for the frequent reader of mags or books especially if you travel by train or bus. You don't notice the technology when absorbed in a book. Very quick download facility. Problems? Presumably for commercial reasons, you cannot move books from the kindle to a PC. I advise you to try without a cover to start with. I have not found the need for one.
