The Nether World (Oxford World's Classics)
The Nether World (Oxford World's Classics)
by George Gissing
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a brilliant book, 1 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think this book is a hidden gem, and why someone hasn't made it into a movie I just don't know. For me, in some ways, it is better than Dickens - it seems less sentimental and more truthful, somehow. The mystery keeps you turning the page, and the characters in it are memorable. Got to read this one!

I really enjoyed this book - it describes the Jewish East End brilliantly, in a no-nonsense way and I would highly recommend it.


Journey Through a Small Planet
Journey Through a Small Planet
by Emanuel Litvinoff
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.12

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good book, 1 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a bit of a Jack the Ripper "investigator" so I was looking for books that described the East End of London first hand. This book did that, and much more. Litvinoff describes his life there in a very readable and truthful way, so that you feel you are "walking the streets" with him. It's down to earth and very interesting, funny at times and definitely worth a read

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this film, 4 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This current release is a snip at 12 and for all those out there who love the original "The Haunting" or "The Innocents", then I think you will appreciate this too. The film is not rushed, and takes you along at an old-fashioned pace. It is quiet and somewhat hum-drum, but before you know it, you are being drawn in to the feeling of foreboding and waiting..waiting... A classic, and one for my ghost story DVD collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased with this machine, 20 Dec 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a really good machine. I was looking for a good wave sound, and rejected so many I heard on the internet as the wave sounded too "crashing in a storm" and not very relaxing. This one has a calming wave sound like on a sandy shore and is ideal to relax to. The other sounds are good too. And it is very easy to use. I'm glad I bought it. Update 24.11.11 - I've just bought another one - my daughter is using my old one!
