The Crucible
The Crucible
by Arthur Miller
Edition: Hardcover

2.0 out of 5 stars Fabric of book OK but heavily annotated with ink and highlighter, 30 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Crucible (Hardcover)
The hard backed copy is not the one pictured here but a 1992 Heinemann. The cover and pages are fine but the text is very heavily annotated with ink and highlighter. As this book was purchased for study purchases this is not ideal as I want to annotate it myself. The previous annotations may prove useful but will be distracting and not what I had expected to find. I am disappointed with this copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read for Indian travel, 19 July 2013

My daughter is taking this book to read on a school trip to India. This book is an uneasy work of art which I hope gives her more insight into the history of the British Colonial period in India and an extra angle for her to experience India with.

Social and Cultural Anthropology: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
by John Monaghan
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read, 19 July 2013

Worthwhile for anyone unfamiliar with Anthropology and needing an overview which is readable and not too academic. Small size makes it ideal for commuter reading.

Wide Sargasso Sea (Penguin Modern Classics)
Wide Sargasso Sea (Penguin Modern Classics)
by Jean Rhys
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Needs to be read with Jane Eyre, 9 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like so many old classics Jane Eyer does not consider the source of wealth people enjoyed at her time and this fills in some gaps particularly moving becasue of the author's background


No Title Available

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I need, 9 Feb. 2013

Like the double sided pens as this makes the space needed for carrying them very much reduced for school purposes

This review is from: Love Poems (Paperback)
I am not very fond of Carol Ann Duffy but am going to hear her read her peoms at the Guardian next week - they are also part of my AS studies. I think that hearing her read her poems will open a new was of understanding and feeling about them for me then I will enjoy having her book much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent condition as advertised, 11 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Weekend Wodehouse (Hardcover)
The book arrived very quickly after ordering it and it was in such excellent condition that it was hard to imagine it was used. Made an excellent Christmas gift for my 16 year old daughter who never guessed it was second hand.
