The English Resistance: The Underground War Against the Normans
The English Resistance: The Underground War Against the Normans

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite That Simple, 11 Jun. 2010
This is an interesting book which discusses the complexities of the Norman Conquest and the power struggles which took place. Too often William's take over in 1066 has been ignored as a topic or over-simplified. This book looks at the possibilities and probabilities for the succession, during a year when England had three kings. The book also explains the reluctance of some parts of the country to accept William, which resulted in a backlash of brutal repression from the new king.

5.0 out of 5 stars An acquired taste and a great toothpaste., 8 Jun. 2010
I have used Euthymol toothpaste for years and I'm very happy with it. It gives a very good, clean feeling after brushing and for people who don't like flouride in their dental products, it's a good option. It's also an alternative to the strong mint flavours many toothpastes have these days. Euthymol has more of an antiseptic flavour. If you can handle that, I thoroughly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Lovely!, 24 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Oriental Orchids
We sent these orchids to a relative on the Isle of Wight. She is thrilled with them and was very impressed with the way the flowers were so carefully packed for travel, each stem having its own individual water. Delivery was swift. Thank you, Bunches, for your excellent service and quality product.

4.0 out of 5 stars A courageous woman, 5 April 2009
This review is from: The Duchess [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
Once the impact of sumptuous gowns and dramatic sets has made its impression on the viewer, what really emerges is the cold reality of life for women in the 18th Century. Georgiana was married only to provide the "heir and spare". Yet this courageous woman struggled to emerge as a person in her own right, despite the dual standards that underpinned her husband's calculating manipulation of their domestic arrangements and the confined role of women at even the highest echelons of English society.

1.0 out of 5 stars A book of few words, 5 April 2009
This review is from: How To Write Memoirs (Paperback)
There are quick guides and extremely brief and sketchy guides and this is the latter. This guide hardly merits the title of book and lacks detailed information or examples. Reading time 5 minutes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Changing Places, 5 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lost in Austen [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
This is an entertaining film for anyone who enjoys the stories of Jane Austen and doesn't mind a new angle. We have all fantasised about meeting our fictional heroes from books and films. For Amanda Price, the line between her everyday reality and the story of Pride and Prejudice becomes blurred to such an extent that, like Alice in Wonderland, she moves into a new world. She finds a "portal" in her bathroom through which Elizabeth Bennett has come forward in time into the 21st Century. Amanda in turn swaps places with Elizabeth and takes up her life. Her attempts to manipulate events according to the story in the novel lead her into many amusing frustrations. Very enjoyable.


West With The Night (VMC)

4.0 out of 5 stars A Courageous Life, 4 April 2009
Beryl Markham's memoir neatly sidesteps the conventional issues of romance and marriage, although she had that, to recount the story of a young woman left very much on her own resources and who achieved considerable success. Beryl made her way into horse training and flying, not as a consciously pioneer feminist woman pushing into conventionally male domains but as a woman trying to make her own livelihood by not accepting there was any reason why she shouldn't do the things she enjoyed and was good at. Her love of Africa and her friendships and knowledge built across cultures are what gave Beryl the capability to forge a life of great variety and interest. The culmination of her achievements was her solo flight across the Atlantic from east to west, which gives the book its title. West With the Night has an appealing informality and honesty. Beryl Markham's name is one of which the world should hear more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bird's Eye View, 4 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Northern Skies [DVD] (DVD)
Northern Skies 1&2 offer impressive birdseye views of the North of England and into Scotland in Northern Skies 2. The picture quality is excellent and the DVDs are ideal for anyone who is enthusiastic about the North, enjoys travelling or is just curious to view familiar places from an unfamilar angle. My sole criticism of these DVDs is that the narration is a little shallow in places and I yearned to know more. Some footage was used more than once in various episodes with no change of dialogue or new information. Nevertheless, the DVDs are excellent value and comprehensively cover some beautiful scenery and interesting towns.
