The River

5.0 out of 5 stars A complete delight., 22 Mar. 2016
This review is from: The River (Audio CD)
This album is a joy. It's harmonically and rhythmically inventive and keeps the listener's interest. Its tunes describe aspects of the river beside which the musician grew up. As a city kid I never consider living in the country but the feel of this record might make me reconsider. It's instrumental, predominantly flute, whistle and keys. A solid but subtle rhythm section provide both platform and response to the melodies. The writer's background in traditional music is complemented by a modern palette that should, in this listener's opinion, ensure a wide appeal. Wide appeal sometimes means inoffensive tending towards empty, not here: this is emotionally resonant. Listen to it, make up your own mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars An inspection of introspections, 22 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The greater part of this book is the thoughts of the principal participants, either as accounts of internal reflections or in the form of conversations. There are vivid descriptions of extreme violence, less graphic descriptions of sexual acts. The book explores the differences between D/s and S&M. It is not mainly about sex. The issues of agency, autonomy and control are imperfectly articulated. Despite my reservations I persisted with this till its end. I found the marriage of the two principals to be only slightly credible but kept reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have enjoyed the Civ games for years, 24 Dec. 2014
I have enjoyed the Civ games for years, This is an excellent member of the series. Its a turn based strategy game. Starting with a settler and a warrior the player builds a city, then gradually a civilisation. There are several different ways of winning so its not just a war game. The turn based form suits me as the game stays where I left it, and is there waiting for my return.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not suitable for UK voltage., 27 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is not immediately useable in UK. It comes from the USA, which should have warned me. It operates on 120V so a transformer is needed to make it work in UK. Step Down transformers are available on Amazon costing £17. Cheaper ones cannot be used for continuous use and some warn not to be used for more than an hour at a time. Identical lights suitable for 240V are available also on Amazon. Avoid my mistake.

3.0 out of 5 stars A dangerous fallacy, 14 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This trilogy promotes the idea that violent psychopathic narcissistic men can be transformed into caring husbands by the love of a Good Woman. As such, it is dangerous. Women die because of their persistence in believing this fallacy. It leads them to believe that if their love be only good enough then the brute who rapes them will be healed. There, that's the politics over. It is an easy read, if at times repetitious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Breton pipe music, 12 Jun. 2014

I first bought this in cassette from in St Malo 20+ years ago. I'm glad to have found it again in CD format. If you like celtic pipe music then this is well worth a listen. If you don't, this may just convert you.

These are very poorly written short descriptions of a range of styles of sex. There's no plot, no characterisation and the sex is formulaic. Save your money and log on to internet sites like literotica.com
