Gozo Travel Guide - My Gozo (My Gozo, Gozo Travel Guide)
Gozo Travel Guide - My Gozo (My Gozo, Gozo Travel Guide)
by Mark Duffy
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really good first effort this simple guide is as a first for the UK / Ireland visitor. If it could be reduced in size it could be easily taken about the island on every trip out. If it could cater for the out-of-season visitor as well (walkers / cyclists) this would be good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grows on you, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not as accessible as the previous albums as the songs are quite different. It is unlikely that you will like it on first hearing as you may expect too much. But subsequently it is better as you get into its more mature themes. Dido’s voice is still as hypnotic as ever though, loosing nothing of her individuality at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless & original, 12 April 2013

This is for all ages, particularly if you have been to the Paris railway stations. I did think that the lack of French accents would affect the adaption; this did not as the mannerisms were authentically French. There are stand-out special effects with an amazing concentration to details. The acting of all the cast was faultless; you are transported to another time & place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blue yonder, 1 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Into the Blue (Paperback)
This was the first Robert Goddard book that I read and it hooked me into all his work. This is because I had been to Greece after reading it and went to the places he describes. What Robert does is fully research all places he describes and must have gone to them. This is carefully layed out and gathers pace as you progress into the tale. What's more it is truly believable that the events actually happened.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive first album, 1 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The harmonies these girls produce is up to anything that emanates from the bible-belt region of USA. I just hope they get the backing to have their skills fully be developed and have them justifiably appreciated.

Where their better tracks are up to a fine standard (Wisely & slow); they could have included their own versions of other artist’s tracks that have influenced their style. Nora Jones did this on the first two albums and now produces work that is truly 5 Star - I hope the Staves will persevere and do this as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugh at his best, 1 Jan. 2013

This is, like his other colour photo books typically representative of what the 50's / 60's were like. Anyone who is interested in seeing how diverse the Southern region steam traction was, then buy this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars William would have approved, 31 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well I bought this without prior hearing a track based on the concept alone. Although not all sonnets on this album work, it is very well done by all the musicians and singers involved. On first hearing it sounds like something George Harrison would have taken on and is does in part sound like his music too. But the more you hear it the more original that it becomes.

Stand out tracks are "Blind fool love" & "Shall I consider you to a summer's day". The instruments although Jacobean in origin, sound quite modern because of the way they are played.

This is different and would appeal to a wide audience, I just hope that there may be another one to follow this fine effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chill city, 31 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chilled Ibiza Vol.1 (Audio CD)
This combination of tracks is a brillint source of material to study the varied styles of chillout. It is definitive in it's ability to sample which artists suits youself, without detracting from being able to listen to all in one sitting.


Man Mountain
Man Mountain
Price: £9.54

4.0 out of 5 stars Blue-chill classic, 4 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Man Mountain (Audio CD)
Blue States work is not as accessable as Air or Zero 7, but it is on par with the best chill-outputs. All BS albums are classic in their own way, "Nothing changes under the sun" is probably the best one to start and then "Man Mountain", but is a close call. I am not picking out any tracks as they all have merit in their own way.

BS music grows on you and the more it is played the more you can find to be able to shut out all other things on your mind. It does have it's own distinct sound which seems to arrive from a distant place and takes you off there. If you like this then the "Soundings" is a superb next step, but you will need to play it more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Southern promise?, 21 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Theodore Boone (Hardcover)
Well the direct comparison to this can only be "To kill a Mocking bird" and the coincidence is that it is the 50th anniversary of that novel. It has the same simplicity and tries to give the innocence of Theodore's childhood as the basis of the story.

Grisham has been interviewed recently stating that he is considering a series to Boone novels, although I guess it will be dependant on sales of this book? Anyway it doesn't detract from the fact is a good read, especially from the perspective if a teenager reads this.

The only downside is set in a non-specific time period, but as usual Grisham does provide his usual craft with style.
