Curious to see what the adapter had changed,I found this after hearing the updated version as a radio play.
A sleuthless Christie and rather good.
Actually preferred it to the adaption although that did work rather well.

So pleased to have two volumes that take no shelf space. This is what computer technology was meant for.
Also really pleased with 'live' pronunciation. Derivations not quite as full or definitive as I had hoped but it is certainly worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Did the job - Smeegle speaks again., 22 Oct 2013

My freebie Smeegle with his oh so sinister wheedling voice lived for years.
Then eventually the batteries went - ah ha factory screws with triangular slots - but bless Siverhill you can now buy this brilliant set of triangular headed screwdrivers. And I even got my replacement batteries at the first shop I tried.
One very happy lady nerd.


Meadowland

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for Tom Holt fans., 22 Oct 2013

This review is from: Meadowland (Hardcover)
If you started with The Portable door and such you may not realise that Mr Holt, an historian by training has a back catalogue.
Meadowland an ingenious romp through the Viking saga of conquest has its feet set firmly on historical possibility. How did two gents from a comfortable longhouse come to be amongst the discoverers of America? Although infused with wit this novel paints a remarkable picture of what those early voyages were like and the conditions endured.
Don't miss it.

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Useful, 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This practical and comprehensive reference book was recommended to me by a friend. It deals with alternative ways of dealing with health problems and places these uncritically alongside mainstream medical practice.
It is now on my 'handy' shelf in the kitchen and much used.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy Film of Classic Subject, 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I saw this film on its original release.
I was impressed by it at the time because it helped me to understand not only an aspect of Indian culture, but also the vital difference between Indian and European singing.
If this were not enough it is so brilliantly directed and shot that almost each frame is worth studying.
This film did not fade and I wanted to see it again but could not find it. Sixteen years later I finally found this English subtitled version.
Watching for the first time again in all those years it has in no way diminished - it remains a powerful evocation of a 5,000 year old tradition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A blissful tool for meditation., 9 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Huge (MP3 Download)
The title of this album demonstrates the difficulty of providing translation - it probably should be rendered " That which fills the universe" - however that would hardly be catchy as a title.

My first contact with this music came through the award winning film 'Dance of the Wind'. Shweta sang the voiceover and the track 'In Praise of Voice' remained with me.

This is a wonderful example of Indian meditative singing - simple, clear haunting.
