2.0 out of 5 stars Very limited noise cancelling, 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The noise-cancelling facility on these headphones is fairly poor and inferior to the previous model. The headphones cancel out aircraft noise well, but do not cancel out conversation at all - in fact, if anything, by cancelling other noise, they make conversation more obtrusive. I suffered a particularly unpleasant flight during which a couple in the row behind were having a full-blown shouting row all the way from London to Dubai - the headphones blocked none of it, even when I was listening to music or films. They also fail to cancel other background noise such as building work. The headphones are hot to wear and become uncomfortable after a few hours.

3.0 out of 5 stars A B-movie, 13 Jan. 2001
This review is from: Kingdom Of Shadows (Paperback)
Kingdom of Shadows is a puzzling book for admirers of Alan Furst, almost a B-movie in comparison to the dazzling Dark Star and the Jean Casson series (The World at Night, Red Gold).
Why return yet again to emigre communities in Paris, except to reprise a lot of the beautifully crafted atmospherics of the Jean Casson novels?
And why waste the hugely sinister potential of pre-war Hungary by concentrating the novel almost entirely on Paris - yet again?
Kingdom of Shadows left me unsatisified in comparison with Furst's other novels. Despite being a pleasurable read, this novel did not suprise me or enlighten me in the manner of his other novels. I look forward to the return of Jean Casson in a sequel to Red Gold.
