Excellent book - brings home both the humanity of Calsals and the inhumanity of much of 20th century history, particularly the Spanish civil war and its aftermath.


Dis-Ease: Living with Prostate Cancer

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for anyone with prostate cancer, or ..., 10 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A must read for anyone with prostate cancer, or a potential victim of prostate cancer (i.e. most men). A graphic description of the treatment, together with background facts, plus Dale's philosophical and theological thoughts as he went through the process and emerged at the other end of the tunnel (his image). I'd read some of it before in his blog and heard Dale talk about different aspects of his experience, so was well prepare for what I read; even so, I found it gripping.

Dale Rominger's latest novel is highly enjoyable - homage to both Chandler and Proust in one relatively short book. I'm looking forward to reading the next Drake Ramsey story!

The Mandolin Lesson: A Journey of Self-discovery in Italy

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent holiday read, 7 May 2014

Frances describes her engagement with Italian culture and cuisine alongside her lessons with the legendary Ugo Orlandi. I enjoyed Frances's account of her musical, personal and spiritual journey, told through a series of 'snapshots' over a number of years. I'm planning to read it again on my next visit to Italy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap & cheerful, 29 April 2012

The cover does exactly what is needed to protect a Kindle when it's not in use. The cover is slightly bulky in comparison with some of the alternatives, but significantly cheaper. We're very happy with the ones we bought.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition, 17 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The content of this book is generally good - the approach is interesting and thought-provoking. There is one serious error: the author asserts that tablature can only be used to represent chords, not melody; it doesn't significantly change the line of his argument but does dent his credibility (if he's wrong about this, what else is he wrong about?).

The Kindle edition is a cheap & cheerful conversion: there are links from the contents page to the start of each chapter, but not from the index - which would be very handy & limits the future value of the book if you want to go back to find something half remembered.

The biggest inconvenience is that illustrations referenced in the text don't have links to jump to & from them. Not a major issue as the illustrations referred to appear within a few pages, but a missed opportunity in terms of electronic publishing & frustrating at the time. The illustrations are not particularly clear on a Kindle, but none are so essential that this becomes a problem.

If you are trying to decide whether to get the hard copy or Kindle edition, then I'd lean to the hard copy. But the Kindle edition isn't so bad that you'll regret it if Kindle is your preferred format for other reasons.
