5.0 out of 5 stars Understand Stalker, 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roadside Picnic (Paperback)
Stalker is an amazing film but a bit incomprehensible. This is the book that inspired the film. Apparently the Zone was a brief stopping off point for aliens, a 'roadside picnic'. Watch the film, read the book. They are both great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rural Rides, 15 May 2013

This review is from: Rural Rides (Kindle Edition)
The best bits are where Cobbett rides through a landscape that you know well today. He was a keen observer of nature and agriculture, and you can get a wonderful image of how the land has changed, or where it has stayed the same. His political polemics on the cost of corn and agricultural policy are a bit difficult to follow almost 200 years later. And, on a more trivial note, I was amazed at how many turnips were being grown all across England at that time.

This is Clavell's best book by far, with King Rat in second place. A very evocative picture of 17C Japan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Complete Plays of W Shakespeare, 10 Nov 2012

It is not the complete plays. It is the complete tragedies, and I wanted Henry V which is not on it

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting faster, 26 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is a bit short but very solid. I am following the 10 week training programme for the half-marathon. After two weeks, I am already 5% faster (although the Runkeeper app on my iPhone must take some credit as it gives me my latest speed every 5 minutes). All in all, this book is well worth the slightly higher price than other training books.
