5.0 out of 5 stars My grandson, Bill, just loved it., 15 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a consolation prize for my grandson Bill having to put up with a new sibling. Thankfully he likes both the train and the sibling (his very little brother Sam).
The train is heardwearing dye caste metal and easy to operate (for a 3 year old). Hours of fun to be had with this and all the others. The battery compartment can only be accessed with a screwdriver, hence, really safe to play with. Well done!


The Rock Pool
The Rock Pool
by Cyril Connolly
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A great holiday read...., 21 July 2013

This review is from: The Rock Pool (Paperback)
I bought this novella to read on a holiday on the Cote d'Azur and found it very enjoyable. Hilariously funny in parts (Warning: I do have an odd sense of humour) and gives a real sense of the era in which it was written. I was staying a little way from Trou-sur-Mer (really Cagnes-sur-Mer) where the action is set and the book gave a sense of what that coast was like in the 20s/30s, before mass tourism etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything you want to hear, but the editing could have been better., 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as I wanted a copy of 'Slow Train'. I bought the full album as it seemd a bit of a bargain. However, it is rather spilt by isensitive editing of the order of the tracks, with lots of missed spiken links etc. Still a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the exact sound track, but still a beautiful piece of music., 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This isn't the exact sound track version of the little duet the Master and Surgeon play together, but the chamber orchestra version. Still a beautiful piece of music.


Fantasia in C Minor for Piano, Chorus and Orchestra, Op. 80
Fantasia in C Minor for Piano, Chorus and Orchestra, Op. 80
Price: £0.79

5.0 out of 5 stars A familiar piece of music, now identified and loved., 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Written before th more famous ninth symphony, which owes much to this piece in it structure and melody. However, this is no 'poorman's' ninth. The ninth was never my favourite Beethoven symphony (I think the seventh much better anyday) and the Fantasia is a great way to exploer the same themes without the heavy going of the ninth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the grandons......, 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hohner Silver Star Harp in C (Toy)
Bought two of these for my grandsons (2.5 and 2) and they are safe, with no sharp edges etc, and easy to blow. Both thought they were great fun and one (the elder) has taken it up full time. All the better to annoy his parents with.......
