The Secret History of Nursery Rhymes
The Secret History of Nursery Rhymes
by Linda Alchin
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.37

3.0 out of 5 stars The meanings were interesting, but still...., 19 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had wanted this book for ages. I bought it and I found the meanings behind the nursery rhymes interesting, and fascinating. However, I expected much more. For me more detail and research was needed, plus the grading of language was not really necessary. Otherwise a pleasant enough read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why is Ruth Ellis on the cover of this book?, 19 Feb 2014
I have a problem with Ruth Ellis being on the cover and being portrayed as evil - she was a woman scorned who finally snapped and killed her abuser. In turn she was killed by the State.

It was great to dance in, comfortable, could do a ball or just a dance class. Looks even better with a petticoat underneath. Black Butterfly do good value ones that are light and comfortable.

I love Anne Taintor's sharp wit coupled with the vintage pictures. She is razor sharp with her observations. Mothers will love September's caption!

4.0 out of 5 stars A user-friendly guide to grammar, 19 Sep 2013

I like this particular book because Jim Scrivener explains things clearly and does not waffle. It is very useful for an absolute beginner like me! I have a feeling I will be keeping this by my side when I start my CELTA course next month.

3.0 out of 5 stars Energy - yes. Weight loss - watch this space., 29 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Thermo Fat Burner Max is a caffiene-based slimming product, however, I have yet to feel the 'burn'. It is brilliant for energy but I have yet to see it as an effective weight-loss product. I have only been on it a couple of weeks, so maybe I am being impatient, I think I will have to give it 2 bottles' worth of use to be able to really see results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful book, 20 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is written in fairly simple lexis - a real plus for me as I needed to ingest all the prerequisites for an English teacher! I bought this book as I just had a call from an au pair wishing to learn English as my Dad had put my name forward! So, I thought on my feet, ordered the book, read through it - and voila! I loved it and really related to the information and tips given. Michelle Maxom uses relevant examples, clever hints and tips, gives the would-be teacher exactly what they need to construct a lesson for all levels of learners. This book is an absolute must - buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lee Miller, the ultimate photographer, 15 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is an absolute must for photography students and enthusiasts alike. Lee Miller's photographs are a quixotic mix of the sophisticated, natural, poignant, edgy, hard-hitting and aesthetically pleasing.

I particularly recommend her photographs of images of the Second World War - these are really raw and moving, especially the ones of the SS Guards and the collaborators. She truly has captured a dark yet enlightening period of history.

On a lighter note, her Vogue work and Man Ray portraits are really beautifully shot, capturing the artists' free spirits.

This would be the coolest coffee table book!
