I read this excellent espionage story fifty years ago, and was eager to re-read it. It was a wonderful re-acquaintance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr John Thorndyke's forensic exploits, 2 July 2015

Freeman's stories were meticulously constructed in a gently civilised style; even Raymond Chandler enjoyed the walking round the streets of Hampstead and environs.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unfairly neglected poet, 21 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent edition, with clear type and comfortably bound. I'd forgotten how vigorous a lot of his verse was, especially 'Barrack-Room Ballads'; Kipling has been unjustifiably neglected; let's hope this edition corrects that.

2.0 out of 5 stars This is a beautifully made puzzle, 12 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a beautifully made puzzle, delightfully boxed, which unfortunately doesn't meet the definition of a soma cube in that two of the groups of four cubes are identical instead of being mirror images of each other.
I am seeking advice as to whether this is an issue under the trades descriptions act.

London Belongs to Me (Penguin Modern Classics)
London Belongs to Me (Penguin Modern Classics)
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 9 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wonderfully evocative book. As I read it, I could see the scuffed paintwork and the lino surround of the carpets so deep in my memory. The Jossers are great characters.

Dvd ~ Nigel Hawthorne
Offered by DVDDemon

5.0 out of 5 stars And I forgot to mention the brilliant Nigel Hawthorne as Georgie, 15 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
McEwen and Scales are utterly superb, showing a very deep understanding of Benson's masterpieces. And I forgot to mention the brilliant Nigel Hawthorne as Georgie! T he other casting is wonderfully done as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A double-edged title for a subtle book, 15 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brilliant collage of eyeshots of a situation in which a series of fragmented and overlapping impressions invite the reader to conjecture an underlying narrative, - or does the reader impose the narrative on those random glimpses?
A very engrossing and exciting reading experience. A well edited edition, with a good introduction.
