This, That and the Other
This, That and the Other
by Mitchell Symons
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars This, That and the Other..., 17 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great fun. A veritable tour de force of interesting and entertaining facts and figures, and of insights into the lives and loves of the great and the good. The perfect Xmas gift for the not too serious reader.


Literary Criticism: A Practical Guide for Students
Literary Criticism: A Practical Guide for Students
by Malcolm Hicks
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Literary Criticism, 17 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The contents were well planned and presented and would prove invaluable to 'Eng Lit' undergraduates. It would also be very useful to those who one day aspire to join that happy throng. While not the finest of its class (Lindy Miller's 'Practical Criticism' being my particular favourite...) it was nevertheless an enjoyable and worthwhile read. .

4.0 out of 5 stars Revise Higher English., 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An extremely useful little book, albeit the answers to typical 'Close Reading' questions are written in far too sophisticaed a manner for the average 'Highers' pupil to emulate. Methinks many youngsters will feel more inadequate having read what they will think is the standard of response expected of them. We can but hope it encourages them to read more - and to express themselves more succinctly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jesie Kesson; Writing her life., 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fine biography of a fine Scottish writer and poet, its quality reduced somewhat by ceaseless repetition of facts and incidents of and from her life. A 'must-have' nevertheless for admirers of "oor Jessie's" genius. A remarkable life; a remarkable woman.

Today Tomorrow: The Collected Poems of George Bruce, 1933-2000
by George Bruce

5.0 out of 5 stars Collected poems of George Bruce, 17 July 2013

Mr Bruce has a voice which is completely his own. In his work we share his experiences and his thoughts and feelings as they have developed and matured over the long years of his life. Beautifully encapsulated in his poem, 'Home'....

'Two red candles on the mahogany table
The table reflects our faces; pale
transparent we present ourselves
to ourselves at the agreed age, mature
But who is that old man on a stick
who looks at me from the maghogany?

This review is from: Philosophy: Key Themes (Paperback)
An extremely well written introduction to the subject. I gained much from it and would highly recommend it to anyone keen to develop their understanding and enjoyment of philosophy, its history, complexity and everyday applications...


Questions from Your Cosmic Dance
Questions from Your Cosmic Dance
by John Coleman
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Cosmic Dance..., 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sorry, it simply didn't appeal to me. A quick glance was enough. A wastepaper 'basket-case'.

I can't remember anything of it now...

My only complaint is that one of the legs keeps falling out, otherwise, it's absolutely fine for the uses intended. It makes a nice surface for putting trays, cups and things on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough and tidy trousers..., 26 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am extremely pleased with my purchase. The trousers are a perfect fit, are comfortable to wear and I'm sure will last and last; the.stitched crease ensures their smartness. I haven't found a use for all the pockets yet, but no doubt that day will come. Nicely packaged and delivered on time. A really good buy.
