Bernard's Watch
Bernard's Watch

Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for all ages from eight., 2 Jan. 2014

I have read this book out loud to numerous classes now and they have all loved it. The kids putvit on our 'Top one hundred books' list in the library. It prevokes all kinds of discussion from ethics to life after death and has a compelling style. Why isn't it still in print?

This review is from: The Great War (Hardcover)
A great discussion point and hours of pouring over the drawings. Felt their was something too 'nice' about it though, compared to the horrors of what it was portraying.

Son said they were almost as good as originals. Even better is the price! Inevitable these are bought as almost impossible to get replacements easily in Europe.

This review is from: Dart (Hardcover)
It is so good to get such a well crafted piece of writing into a book form which feels and looks so good. Illustration on the front cover is perfect. I have already enticed some non-poetry readers to explore the work by giving this as a gift.

Clear and colorful but the design could have been so much more relative. Why does 'educational' have to equate with boring?

This review is from: Jane Austen (Hardcover)
An interesting approach to biography where the text of the novels is used to furnish the missing links in what is known, whilst acknowledging his own speculation and challenging that of others. This is all the more appreciable if you are widely acquainted with the novels.

A straightforward and yet startling photographer. There is an honesty to these photographs which brings the viewer straight to the sitter in an almost confronting way.

This is compelling reading.
On a practical note the book is so big and heavy I can only read at a table!

This review is from: A Crisis of Brilliance (Paperback)
I only have a few pages to go and don't want to finish it. Really interesting to see these artists side by side. I knew quite a lot about them individually but this added so much more, we rarely get a glimpse into the early days and influences of contemporaries in this way.
