A selection of Wildflowers of Southern Spain
A selection of Wildflowers of Southern Spain
by Betty Molesworth Allen
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Good company for walks in Spain, 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the best books that we have found for identifying wild flowers on the southern Costa Blanca. However, the relatively distant images of some flowers still leads to difficulties in identification and some sense of order within the book would have been helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Abyss of London, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read a number of Jack London's fictional books, I downloaded this without looking at what the "story" was actually about. So, I was surprised to find this a social experiment conducted by Jack London in 1902. It makes compelling, albeit depressing, reading about the East End of London just over a century ago. Jack embroils himself in life in the East End, experiencing various aspects of the poverty and depravity that existed at the time. Fortunately, things have improved in the hundred years since the book was written - ever so slightly!

4.0 out of 5 stars Is this intended to be a children's book?, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although I quite enjoyed reading this book about a time travelling teacher, its literary merits are somewhat limited. Having said that, the story flows fairly well but, at the end, I could not decide whether I had mistakenly downloaded a book aimed at a younger audience.

Although described as "basic", this monitor does just what it should - it is easy to use and provides the read-out that I require

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money, 18 July 2011
Have tried for hours to get this to work with an XP laptop but at best the picture and sound quality are very, very poor. Useless with Windows 7. Complete waste of money.
