2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 9 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read other reviews of this book I had high hopes, but found it incredibly disappointing. It's more of a love story than a Cold war Thriller, and the writing wasn't good enough to capture my interest. Descriptions of characters' emotions are laborious and stereotyped, leaving very little to be inferred. It flows better towards the end when you find out what happened to Katya, but I just wished there'd been the same sense of flow throughout the book. The author constantly switches between different characters when describing their thought processes and I found that particularly irritating. I think it would have been better if the later story in Boston had been left out, as the Moscow events are far more interesting. Even so, it feels like a sanitised, Americanised account of the Soviet era, and it lacked the gritty details that you get in other cold war books.

This review is from: The Goldfinch (Kindle Edition)
Incredibly sad, amazingly moving. It's a very long book but so well written that the reader's interest is maintained. My only criticism is that the final chapter is rather too drawn out.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull, 8 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Choose a location in Europe....drive there....have trouble with your sat nav.....argue with your husband....find a toilet.....do some sightseeing.....eat pizza and ice cream.....drink wine.....lie on a sun lounger and say, "This is beginning to feel like a holiday." Choose another location......and repeat.
This book is unbelievably dull. If I knew the family and were receiving email updates on their adventures I might find some of the anecdotes amusing. But for general reading it is just not worth it. I can't understand what inspired anyone to publish it. I understand the family's reasons for taking this holiday, I'm sure it was an unforgettable experience for them, and I do have sympathy for the situation they are in regarding the author's health issues. But the book is written so badly, with so much repetition (not to mention typos), that I found the whole experience boring. Anyone who draws comparisons with Bill Bryson really needs to read some Bill Bryson.

I was initially very pleased with the appearance of this phone cover. However, it broke within a couple of weeks of normal handling. Shoddy and disappointing.

A moving, thought provoking story about a young man's experience with mental illness. It's a difficult subject, but the author treats it beautifully. Highly recommended.

Edition: Sheet music
Price: £5.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Same as before, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I saw this advertised and assumed it was a new publication, so I bought it. It turns out it has the same content as the older ABRSM sight reading book I already had, so I could have saved myself the money!

It is a very good resource for music teachers.

Exactly what I needed - perfect size, plenty of pockets, and fits easily under clothing. Foiled the pickpockets on the metro in Rome.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard drive required, 31 Dec. 2013
My son bought this game with vouchers he had for Christmas. He was looking forward to playing it, but when he tried to do so he discovered that he needs a hard drive as well as the normal Xbox 360. I am disappointed that this is not made clear on the Amazon product description.
