The Sidmouth Letters (Abacus Books)
The Sidmouth Letters (Abacus Books)

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterful short-story Collection., 1 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exquisite collection of carefully observed tales of the English in their glory across the classes. The humour, although it has a sting is `from the inside and never loses warmth. The writing is spare and honed although relaxed and fluent. This should be on the syllabus for literature students to learn the art of short-story writing.

I love this author and bought this children`s book to read before passing on to my Grandchildren. It is charming and honest.I knew that Jane Gardam had a wonderful ability to see the world through the eyes of the adolescent (Bilgewater, Crusoe`s Daughter, and A Long Way from Verona) but this extends to an ability to remember and sympathise with the anxieties and preoccupations of small children.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Green Company, 1 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Following introduction of new refuse scheme needed compostable liners for food-waste caddy. I was able to easily identify the correct size and type I needed from clearly labelled and explained product guide from `All Green`. My order was responded to, processed and despatched quickly and efficiently with good communication from them to keep me appraised of details.
I am very pleased with the product which is light, clean and fresh and easy to handle. Does the job well and I have the satisfaction that not only is it environmentally sound but also fits with local authority requirements at a reasonable cost to me. Very pleased that I weill not have to shop around for a better service.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cabaret The film, 20 Aug 2013

Wonderful presentation of an interesting but sinister time during the rise of Nazi Germany and that reckless, live now, pay later society. Beautiful, sweet, tragic and funny depiction of Sally Bowles by Liza Minnelli. Love this film.

Another reminder of my hedonistic and youthful past when Summers seemed longer and life was more carefree. Great songs that speak of innocence and hope.

Love this. Took me back to my youth and heady days in the sixties when we thought there was no price to pay for freedom and that nothing would run out..

Good looking boot and very serviceable but unfortunately I think I should have selected a larger size as an hour into a long walk toes felt very pinched and caused serious blistering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maverick Sabre wonderful soulful newcomer., 30 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lonely are the Brave (Audio CD)
Love this collection. Maverick Sabre`s voice is heart-rending. It has all the qualities of loss and dispossession from his Irish background but also the edge and question of young black London.
