3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure!, 28 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Great Beauty [DVD] (DVD)
I was recommended this film as one of the best ever seen etc ....but it didn't quite do it for me! I am an Italian speaker and usually love arty type films but I found this slow and aimless! It meandered around the main characters a bit like a wasp at a picnic, and yes it is beautiful but a 10 year old could make a beautiful in Rome!

Not one of my best buys!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant little starter scheme., 28 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these for my 3 year old grand daughter who is starting to do her letters at nursery as a bit of home back up. The stories are simple one-line to a page and repetitive word sounds. Bright and colour full and a great success here!

Needed these in a hurry and got them too!

Easy peasy ordering and communication so I knew exactly when they were going to arrive!

Highly recommended if you haven't had fitflops before! Make your feet feel fab and a holiday must-have! They look great on the beach or out to dinner and once you try them, you never go back!

3.0 out of 5 stars A hard read!, 28 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wolf Hall (Paperback)
I know this has won all sorts of awards and I know it's a brilliantly research epic tale....but I found it really hard work! My husband and I are both reading it at the moment and we're both struggling to finish it as it's not the sort of book you can just pick up for a ten minute fill in read! YOU NEED TO REALLY CONCENTRATE! Part of this is because of Hillary Mantel style of writing. She has written the story through Thomas Cromwell's eyes and just refers to him as He and sometimes it's a surprise that he's even in the scene being described. I wanted to move on to Bring Up The Bodies but I'm so bored with the subject it may have to wait a few years! I read that it is being made into a play. Not one I'll be seeing I'm afraid! Sorry to be so negative but I just found it dull!
