2.0 out of 5 stars battery, 28 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the 4th Kindle device I bought; 2 Kindle Touch before; after this one I bought a 4th, a Paperwhite one. The reason why I didnt't buy a couple of them (always one for my wife and one for me) is that Kindle Fire is a beautiful machine but with the very big weakness in battery lasting. In any condition - even only reading, without Internet connection and so on -, time of functioning is much less than the 9 hours written in the technical data. It's a real pity; I hope in the next future there'll be some improvement. 2 stars are for the device only; 5 stars for Amazon support, really fast and satisfying. But, unfortunately, not enough to mend Kindle Fire's big problem


War Stories: An Enlisted Marine In Vietnam
War Stories: An Enlisted Marine In Vietnam

3.0 out of 5 stars Semper fidelis, 8 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting book about the Marines' world, way of life and especially, way of thinking. In some moment it reminded me Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket" characters. But I suppose to make it work properly this Corp must follow behavior rules quite un-understandable.

3.0 out of 5 stars An angels' voice, 8 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Short but moving portrait of a woman kissed by God for a unique voice but, as it often happen, cursed for a so promising life and its sad finale.

4.0 out of 5 stars A never ending legend, 8 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Even in few pages, this book pictures a complete portrait of a man full of idealism. Even in his terrible mistakes that brought him to a bitter end. To be read

3.0 out of 5 stars Tyranny of all kinds, 8 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, an interesting book about tyranny, its birth from ancient time up to modern. But in the end, to me it seems too an anti government tirade.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stories about a secret place, 8 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very interesting book about stories and legends of a really mysterious place. Prague's Jewish ghetto, its people - the common and the famous -, such as Rabbi Loew, creator of the Golem

4.0 out of 5 stars Great History Book, 28 Jun 2009
Although I'm not a leftist, I read many of his books, especially the four ones about the past Centuries. A really intersting book, written with unbias opinion, a really true historian.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars beautiful Guitar, 28 Jun 2009
This review is from: Plays the Movies (Audio CD)
What can I add to the greatness of John Williams? Of course some of the songs is difficult to be given the same pathos produced by some strongest instrum,ent (ie the piano). Anyway, only "Cavatina" from the "Deer Hunter" is well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Delicate Music, 28 Jun 2009
This is a really delicate music about a really delicate film. Outstanding the choice to insert poems by Pablo Neruda read by different artist.
Highly recommended.
