1.0 out of 5 stars I am delighted to note that, 21 July 2015
I am delighted to note that, to date, this book has only received one review. Hopefully, this implies that few people could be bothered to read it.
Having tried a few pages and looked at the index, the book appears to be comprised of a series of essay written by authors who loathe the English people (those connected to the land over the course of thousands of years) and an attempt to rewrite the country's history. Ten years after the book's publication, it would appear that their dream has come true. Well done them.

This review is from: Udder Cream - 250g (Sports)
I first came across Udder cream while staying with a Lincolnshire farmer. She kept a pot beside her sink to use after washing up. It works wonders on chapped hands. I recommend it to anyone whose hands suffer during the winter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Healthy and FUN!, 31 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I came across this delightful book while looking for something to amuse and enchant the girls in my family in the same way that the books of my childhood enchanted me. The map of Luniper land at the start of the story immediately fired up my imagination - great idea. The illustrations are fresh, lively and sweet and the story encourages children to use their own imaginations, their own creativity, have fun with healthy foods and exercise through play. The best thing is that it is all done in a gentle, lighthearted way that promises to encourage even the most reluctant of fruit and veg eaters. I wish it had been available when my daughters were younger!

3.0 out of 5 stars Tablet ok but software bundle missing Photoshop Elements 11, 6 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Bamboo graphics tablet was sold with three items of software that came as downloads with serial numbers supplied by email. I managed to download two of the items of software successfully but the third, Adobe Photoshops Element 11, has not downloaded. The email containing the serial key to validate the software states that the download is only valid until 02.48 on 7th October (in a few hours time). I have emailed both Wacom and Adobe but have received no replies. As it took quite a bit of time to set up the tablet and register the other two items of software, Corel Painter and Artrage, I don't want to go through the hassle of returning the tablet and going though the whole process again. I am furious and feel that I have been conned. Wacom Bamboo Fun Medium Graphics TabletWacom Bamboo Fun Pen & Touch Medium Tablet

5.0 out of 5 stars London in the 60's - London in the early 21st century, 21 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Up The Junction [DVD] (DVD)
I first read this book in the late 1960s when I was a very young teenager growing up in South London. Nell Dunn's work is one of the most important works written by a British author in the second half of the 20th century. She was as good as Dickens in describing the London of her times. But.... Nell was just a woman, so her value will only be recognized by scholars of London's history in 2015 at the earliest.

4.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT PRODUCT BUT DON'T USE ON COLOURED PAINTS, 29 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great for marks and scuffs on white, or very pale walls. Break a bit off and dampen it before using. Each bit will only last for one use as it reduces and shrinks whilst cleaning.
Also great for cleaning dirty grouting. Don't use for darker coloured paints as it removes colour as well as dirt.

3.0 out of 5 stars Coming from another angle, 28 Dec. 2010
This review is from: A Week in December (Paperback)
Since terrifying and depressing myself with the works of Ballard, I have avoided modern fiction. This book tempted me because of the jacket's blurb linking the work to Thackeray and Dickens, and because I wanted a better understanding, via the words of an intelligent man, of the way the multi-cultural population of London lives in the city now. Many of the main characters are familiar to me, particularly the ghastly Veals and their financially wealthy, emotionally neglected children. In reality, the book being set the week before Christmas, the women would have been consumed with frantic preparations and planning for the main event (deride if you wish, but it is the glue that keeps families together). I cannot understand how anyone could consider the book comical or satirical. I found it a deeply depressing book without hope. The storyline that allowed a young Islamic radical to experience a sudden change of heart, whilst on his way to commit mass murder of the hated kafir, seemed ludicrously far-fetched, although I did appreciate the interesting take on lunacy and religion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack, 19 Jan. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Barry Lyndon [1975] [DVD] (DVD)
The most hauntingly beautiful part of the soundtrack is part of the Piano trio in E flat by Schubert. It is the most perfect musical fit to a film that I have ever heard.
