1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 21 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cover of the book is lovely and I expected the contents to be colourful and suitable for children or for browsing.
Not so! There are no pictures inside, the text is small and the book is not at all appealing or enticing to read beyond the cover. There are so many lovely editions of the Wizard of Oz with pictures of the scarecrow, the tin soldier etc which any person, young or old can delight in, but certainly not with this one. To be labelled "deluxe" edition is very misleading and disappointing. I am extremely pleased that I did not succumb to purchasing the other classics in this series!

Downton Abbey has been such a wonderful series to follow. I thoroughly enjoyed the episode and just wish it could have gone on for longer

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 5 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book arrive promptly and was well-packaged. I have given it as a gift but I am hoping to read it later. I read Greek Fire and Nemesis which were riveting, especially with regard to Jackie Kennedy's relationship with her brother-in-law, Bobby Kennedy. Hopefully the veracity of this will be addressed in this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Big, bigger, biggest!, 5 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the watch but have not worn it----will probably give it away as a gift. The watch is far bigger than I anticipated and is also very heavy. I like a large watch but this one is ginormous!

2.0 out of 5 stars Attractive watch, rubbish strap., 23 May 2013
My son gave this watch to me for Christmas 2012. I loved it, especially since he had chosen it for me. Within a few weeks, the strap had discoloured very badly and was no longer white. I certainly did not wear the watch every day not did I bath or shower with it on. A few weeks ago someone caught up with me at the airport---my watch had fallen off without me even noticing it---the strap had broken at the place where it attaches to the watch. It lasted less than 6 months. This is certainly NOT the quality one expects from Swatch! When Swatches first came out, they were study, fun, cheap and virtually indestructible. They are now quite expensive and do not last. Does the "limited warranty" also apply to the straps? I doubt it! Swatch needs to improve their quality if they want to stay in the market.
