The Complete Works of Plato
The Complete Works of Plato
Price: £0.49

5.0 out of 5 stars AN EXCELLENT COLLECTION, 31 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jowett's translation is beautiful to read. The dialogues are of course fascinating, but what is there for a non-specialist to say after 2000 years? Full of insight, humour, controversy, still alive after all that time.

4.0 out of 5 stars A slightly flawed masterpiece, 26 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've long wanted to read this classic of science fiction. The author conjures up a marvellously plausible world and culture. The story is skilfully told from various perspectives. The characterisation is deftly handled, linked to the societies of the protagonists.

Just two criticisms. There's a long trek through ice that could have been shortened. It reminded me of the penultimate Harry Potter film.

Second, the last chapter seemed to add nothing to the book.

Sciascia demonstrates how crime fiction can sometimes out-perform literary fiction. It's Montalbano plus realism. He depicts a corrupt and violent Sicily in a plot that rings all too true. I can't wait to read more.

5.0 out of 5 stars SKYPE CAN DO WONDERS, 16 Aug. 2015

This review is from: Skype (App)
Calls on Skype can be crackly and their help desk is not brilliant. But my eldest son is in a NYC hospital right now and I'm in London, England. Keeping in touch with him is wonderful via Skype, seeing his smiling face. So how can I give Skype less than 5 stars?

Searching takes a a long time and more words missing than I expected. I have a pocket dictionary that is a lot more comprehensive.

It's OK but a little disappointing. Searching takes ages. And quite a lot of words I've looked for from Italian newspapers were missing. Really a basic dictionary.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece, 11 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought this book was Dostoyevsky's prison diary. But it seems to be a fictional diary, based on his prison experiences. It's a marvellous and chilling account, full of fascinating characters.

It's also notable that Tsarist prisons, despite their cruel punishments and harsh discipline, were heaven on earth compared with their Soviet successors.

I first bought this as a present for someone who was so enthusiastic I bought a copy for myself. The recipes are clearly written and produce unusual meals. She covers Turkey and, the Middle East and North Africa in a very tasty way. Strongly recommended.
