5.0 out of 5 stars An actor's tale, lovingly told., 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Covering McKellen (Kindle Edition)
David Weston is a highly respected professional actor who has spent a lifetime in the industry. Hired to cover ( understudy) Sir Ian McKellen in Trevor Nunn's recent production of King Lear, Mr Weston proves himself to be a very good writer indeed and his incisive diary of the production and it's year long tour, entertains, amuses and informs in equal measure. A must for the bookshelves of theatre fans everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately…., 27 Jan 2014
I got one for my mother-in-law and ran over her with my sit-on lawn-mower as she was lying down sunbathing in some long grass.

4.0 out of 5 stars A delightful Shakespearean fantasy., 14 May 2013
This review is from: Love's Will (Kindle Edition)
A hugely entertaining historical novel that will delight lovers of the genre. Meredith Whitford is to be congratulated for spinning such an entertaining and intriguing Elizabethan tale based on the life and times of William Shakespeare and his relationship with a redoubtable Anne Hathaway. Whether you open it in your second best bed or not, you'll enjoy a first class read. To buy or not to buy ? A resounding yes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Valuable insights but..., 16 Feb 2013

it would have been even better if one or all of the authors had declared their Christian backgrounds/leanings. Having said that, there is much to recommend here.

2.0 out of 5 stars Penguin, have you no shame ?, 6 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent insights about painting and art criticism by John Berger, et al. Poorly presented by Penguin.

My original 1972 copy had fallen apart so I ordered the latest version and what a mean spirited little offering it is.
Given that this is an important work about paintings and how we see them, Penguin Books and the BBC have republished a book that looks as though it's been photocopied in a primary school on undersized scrap paper.

By all means, buy it for Berger's ideas but avoid it like the plague for the unbelievably bad quality of the small reproductions in it.

A modern classic, Penguin ? Not in this shoddy little 2008 version.

2.0 out of 5 stars Vignetting warning., 20 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fitted to the Sigma 10-20 mm f4-5.6 DC HSM, two edges of the hood can be seen at the 10mm setting. They vanish as one zooms to 12 mm. It also arrived with two scratches on the hoods surface.

Climbing Out of Depression
Climbing Out of Depression

Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.79

4.0 out of 5 stars Written with a religious perspective., 17 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is much of value here and I wouldn't for one second want to put people off buying it but it masks its religious background relatively subtly. Of, course, having faith in a Christian god might help some people but it would be better if the author and her publisher were more honest and up front about the book's religious content. That apart, the book is heartfelt, intelligently written and full of good advice. If you are concerned about depression in your own life or in someone else's then you might like to add this to your bookshelf.

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A feast of Photojournalism., 31 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anyone with the slightest interest in photography's graphic ability to catch life in all it's elements will be delighted with this book. Not only for the quality of its images but for all the insights into how they were captured. Buy it for yourself now. Better still buy two and give one away as a Xmas present.

What a delightful book this is. Fun to read and beautifully written. Perfect bed-time reading at a bargain price. It deserves to be in paperback.

2.0 out of 5 stars More of a postcard home., 10 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a sucker for cycle adventures but this never gets out of first gear. It's not impossible the author has a long essay in him, even perhaps, a book. This isn't it. The writer should read Andrew Sykes, "Good Vibrations," or "Dividing the Great" by John Metcalfe before writing about his next trip. I wish him luck.
