5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable and practical, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is exactly as expected. Cotton towelling and velcro fastening. Perhaps it would help if there was some degree of adjustment readily possible. Choice of colours dreary.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good insight into Nash's world, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The best book I have found for understanding what made Nash tick. Otherwise it is difficult to reconcile some of his very varied output with his world outlook. I like his landscapes more than his objects but get the link. An understanable reaction to the horrors of the Great War.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best colour and dificult to insert, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pink just does not look very good in my ears.
They are fairly inflexible. I could only manage to insert the size two smaller than my usual one and that painfully.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good colour but needs to be more flexible, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Getting them in place is the problem as they are almost inflexible. I found with these you can only accept a size two smaller than I had expected. I do like the colour though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Feels really soft but a nuisance to wash, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The wrap is really comfortable and soft to the touch.
The only problem is washing it and even more drying it afterwards without a dryer (not recommended). It takes ages to dry naturally.
Nice but not really worth the hassle when it is also much more expensive than cotton alternatives


Flat Belly Diet! Diabetes
Flat Belly Diet! Diabetes

3.0 out of 5 stars Rather flatulent, 1 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book may have been a good idea but it is over-inflated and verbose. Its diets are wholly unreal for English people with many strange ingredients and the style here too authoritarian and inflexible. At its best in talking more generally about being diabetic.
Very American.


Paul Cadmus: the Male Nude
Paul Cadmus: the Male Nude
by Justin Spring
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A definitive work on his best stuff - the drawings, 1 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For me paul Cadmus's output divides into two, the public paintings often controversial and the private nude male drawings mainly of his life partners done with love. I like his paintings as interesting but the drawings are special and recall the Renaisance at its best.

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointing re-hash really, 19 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Backstory (Kindle Edition)
Hurley's account of his writing the police procedure books about DCI Faraday in Portsmouth has some interest for fans. It merely offers a homogenised version of that part of his writing career very liberally filled out with extracts from his books. If you have already read these it seems just a bit of a cheat to have chunks of them to re-read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly a masterpiece of Edwardian socialising angst(?), 13 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its original title "The Saddest Tale" would have been more appropriate, but the publishers would not accept such a title. It seems at first a typical but well written tale of Edwardian well-to-do folk living the genteel life. There is a keen sense of observation humour and telling details of the superficialities of such living. Centre-stage are two couples (one American) whose lives get closer in friendship and ever more under the spotlight, but as things develop their lives also get more complex and ultimately sad. What is unusual is that it all seems so real and that the reader feels the outcome so much. Ford Madox Ford was a writer given to expansive page-filling to earn a living, but this short novel is polished and quite the perfect gem.

4.0 out of 5 stars A challenging complex read with much internal consciousness, 13 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Parade's End (Paperback)
"Parade's End" is a series of four novels, three of which hang together closely and all of which deal mainly with the same three characters. It is certainly not a family saga with the story progressing through time. There are though a few events that are latched onto and recur in (mainly Christpher Tietjens') ongoing musings. In a way it is a sad version of the eternal triangle, a hero married to an unloving wife who glimpses the elusive love of his life, but his antagonistic wife delights in making his life difficult.
It was written in the times of James Joyce and Virginia Woolf when the new fashion was for much musing and complex Freudian reaction. For us today it makes for a difficult read but one that is ultimately rewarding and its memory is lingering. The war sections are distinctively real and show the exhaustion of the senior officers close to the front in a way not found in other war novels. The fourth book is much less about Tietjens. The nearest we get to an "ending" is at the end of the third novel but the story (nightmare) goes on - as life tends to. It lingers in the mind afterwards....
