Greek Myths and Legends
Greek Myths and Legends
by Diana Ferguson
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars I agree with the first reviewer. This book is ..., 26 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I agree with the first reviewer. This book is tastefully illustrated on every page with the kind of pictures you see on the front jacket. Aside from the famous legends there are insights into the meaning of them too, along with background information from that time. If you're not looking for a children's book then this is the one to buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Durable but there are too many flaws, 10 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One or two other reviewers commented that this case didn't fit absolutely perfectly and I agree with them. The leather overlaps on the front of the iPad and there is virtually no clearance from the visible screen. In places the leather protrudes onto the edge of the screen. Also, the camera eye is not dead centre and there's a small hole cut out where there shouldn't be. I would also add that it's quite bulky, which cancels out the slim design of the iPad Air2. The case looks very durable and is probably built to last but I'm sending mine back and have opted for the top dollar genuine Apple iPad case. If you're a fusspot like me you wont like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celluloid Heroes, 1 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: La Ronde [1950] [DVD] (DVD)
David Thomson's brilliant book 'A Biographical Dictionary of the Cinema' led me to this gem of a film. Anton Walbrook delights as the master of ceremonies and there is great support from other celluloid heroes like Danielle Darrieux. This is what cinema is all about. Max Ophuls at the top of his game on the carousel of dreams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super, 21 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Classy 70's pop from now forgotten band Starbuck. Bruce Blackman writes and sings nearly all the songs in a witty,casual style not too disimilar to Michael Franks. Their signature tune 'Moonlight Feels Right' is the only reason I bought the cd but there are lots of other gems here like 'Sunset Eyes' 'Gimme a Break' and 'Got to Know'. Blackman knows how to write a tune. Super!

3.0 out of 5 stars A lot of padding out, 6 July 2012
One or two interesting bits but nothing new, as the last review said. There's a lot of padding out and a pointless section on Gerald Scarfe? What was his contribution to Wish You Were Here? I would have preferred an interview from the model standing upside down in Mono Lake on the postcard or the nude model behind the reg flag on the inside sleeve!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright as a button!, 15 Jan. 2012

Super light. I have three of them now. One is over a year old and is still performing well. Beware the light is not waterproof, so it needs to fixed under a porch or in a shed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slide Guitars meet Indian Tablas!, 17 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: So Beautiful Or So What (Audio CD)
Slide Guitars and Indian Tablas embellish the country song 'Dazzling Blue', one of the highlights of a work that returns to the feel of his Millennium album You're The One. Lyrically it's an extension of the themes he pondered on his last album Surprise. The afterlife edges closer as he enters the endgame on planet earth. This album continues the high quality songwriting that we expect from Paul Simon. A lesser work than Surprise but essential for all fans.
What's next? Simon's reflections in heaven? Will technology be in place to download it? Or will he take a giant leap of unfaith?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Dylan on Blu-Ray, 20 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the films of the noughties and easily the best Dylan on dvd or blu-ray. The amazon review says all you need to know but I'll just add that there are some wonderful cover versions in here. Calexico's Goin' to Aculpulco is my highlight. Hanes plays it cool by choosing the less obvious Dylan. Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Christmas Treat, 29 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Where would Christmas be without MR James? To be listened on a winter's night, preferably before Christmas with the tree lights on and a Baileys Irish Cream. The Michael Hordern readings are the best but as they are still unavailable on CD this is the next best thing.
The stories are Canon Alberic's Scrapbook, Lost Hearts, The Mezzotint, The Ash Tree, Number 13, Count Magnus, Whistle and I'll Come To You and The Treasure of Abbot Thomas. Read by David Timson with two by Stephen Critchlow. There are embellishes of classical music now and again but it doesn't intrude on the atmosphere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy Les Fleurs. Buy this one!, 10 Sept. 2010

The best of Minnie is all here. Perfect Angel was her big breakthrough but Adventures in Paradise is her masterstroke. On the latter she enlists members of The Crusaders and a harpist to create a classy Soul/Jazz classic. We love you Minnie.
