5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely portable, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great sounds and so portable. Works wel on batteries. I use it for rehearsing music with groups of singing students. Not fully weighted but is very touch responsive to produce convincing piano playing. Another eighty quid takes you up to the casio cd 120 but it quite a lot heavier and needs plugging in. This product is very well priced from amazon although I did manage to buy a second one reconditioned but fully guaranteed and packaged as new from rocking rooster online.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for a long car journey, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you a a fan of PG Martin Jarvis is to my mind the master of this sort of thing. He renders all the characters so vividly that you believe you are listening to a whole roomful of actors. I find the skill of Jarvis a perfect companion to the wit and style of Woodhouse and possibly more enjoyable than watching a tv adaptation. Perfect for a long car journey,

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loving the case. It looks very smart indeed and works a treat, completely protecting the I pad front and back without being overly clunky. I notice remarks about it not lasting. I've been using it a couple of months pretty intensively without any signs of wear although its still early days. At the price I paid I'd be fairly happy to have to replace it every once in a while.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hugely dated, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I remember being fascinated by this series as a child growing up in the seventies- particularly as it had a few naughty bits in it. I'm afraid that the whole thing, including the naughty bits has lost it interest. Whilst the story remains as relevant as ever, the TV epic mini series thing comes across as really naff and the writing and production values seem almost laughable now. Probably a good candidate for a remake.

60 Years Later
60 Years Later
by John David California
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

3.0 out of 5 stars My God this book is depressing, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 60 Years Later (Paperback)
Not quite sure what the point of this book is. I'm not convinced that it is particularly well written although it does contain some fairly convincing insights into just how un appealing being at the end of one,s life could be. If you're a big Catcher in the Rye Fan read it. Otherwise give it a miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling and fascinating read, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shipwrecks (Hardcover)
A wonderful demonstration of how less is more. This short book avoids the use of purple prose and simply, skilfully and beautifully tells a the story of a young boy growing up in a remote, struggling Japanese fishing village several hundred years ago. It's all a bit depressing really, but strangely the book left me feeling quite optimistic about the human condition. In my opinion a Must Read.

4.0 out of 5 stars an interesting take on The Mabinogion, 6 Mar 2011
If you are already familiar with the Mabinogion it's very interesting. It's one of 4 books by different authors using the may. as inspiration.

2.0 out of 5 stars clever design but badly made, 6 Mar 2011
It looks good and holds the x box well but the carry straps are light and flimsy and one broke straight away. A shame because my son finds it really useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice adaptation of an excellent book, 6 Mar 2011
This review is from: Turn of the Screw [DVD] (DVD)
Really enjoyed this. Worth a read of the book before or after. There's also an interesting black and white film which has a different name.
