The River of Lost Footsteps: A Personal History of Burma
The River of Lost Footsteps: A Personal History of Burma
by Thant Myint-U
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.68

4.0 out of 5 stars Myanmar (History of Burma before recent elections), 18 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Authoritative although stated early on by Thant Myint-U that this is merely his interpretation of a situation in which he is really an ex-pat with a cultured western view. However, despite that warning, it is not judgemental and probably gains by being apparently neutral historically. It is topical given recent election results in Burma but did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi's father, Aung San, fled Burma and was educated in military skills by the Japanese in 1940 and served with 29 other "Comrades" alongside the Japanese 15th Army in its invasion of Burma in 1942 to throw off the British colonial yoke? But, read on...it is a good read and foundation for whatever happens next in Burma.

5.0 out of 5 stars Counter-Tenor at his best!, 18 Nov. 2015

This review is from: Vivaldi: Nisi Dominus (Audio CD)
Brilliant - I keep playing it and only heard about it when reading a review of "Spectre". Such is my enthusiasm that I have gone on and ordered "Heroes - Mozart" also starring Scholl which includes some Handel and a little Gluck. If that gets as many plays when it arrives, that too will have been a good buy.

Goods arrived promptly and were assembled without difficulty. As others have commented, it is worth retightening the spikes as one or two of mine came loose after usage. As an aerator, it is much easier to use that those that you stand on and which cut out plugs of lawn but you have to accept that the holes left are smaller and you may need to consider a repeat treatment if, as recently, the rains have meant delay to the application of autumn lawn treatments and hence the holes filling in. The aerator does the job so I have no complaints.

This review is from: The Winter Guest [DVD] (DVD)
4 different situations are played out around the central story which is the aftermath of the premature widowhood of the central character (played by Emma Thompson). There is little development in the respective story lines with inconsequential almost puzzling ends for three of the four of them. Frankly, the viewer is left almost indifferent to the characters and, since the pace is so slow, two of my fellow viewers walked out halfway and three quarters of the way through the film.

This review is from: Wagner: Lohengrin (Audio CD)
I re-ordered the CDs as the first was corrupted in the sense that it would not download/copy onto my Brennan JB7- so was the second. I returned both and have not ordered its replacement yet. Subject to that problem, I suspect it is a perfectly good production so I hope others are more successful with different pressings than I.

Verdi: Nabucco (DECCA The Originals)
Verdi: Nabucco (DECCA The Originals)
Price: £10.47

5.0 out of 5 stars Remastered but good, 28 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this was my first encounter with "Nabucco" so I am unable to compare this recording with others. However, as a remastered version of a legendary recording made in Vienna in October 1965, it was much better than I had anticipated. There was none of the tininess in the orchestral pieces I associate with older recordings.
