Atonement Child
Atonement Child

3.0 out of 5 stars Atonement Child, 17 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Atonement Child (Paperback)
Got this for a Book Club session - not my choice. Had reservations, but a riveting plot - you had to read on to find out what happened. Prompted interesting discussions, though I was not always in agreement. Was worth doing, but I am not tempted to read another book by the same author.

Reading Series Fiction: From Arthur Ransome to Gene Kemp
by Victor Watson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £35.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Reading Series Fiction, 17 Oct. 2011
Got this because I had been following Antonia Forest and Malcolm Saville on websites, as I had read them when young! Very useful book, academic but accessible - and I agreed with (almost) everything author wrote!


The Annotated Alice: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass
The Annotated Alice: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass
by Lewis Carroll
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.68

5.0 out of 5 stars Annotated Alice: Definative edition, 22 Aug. 2011
Nice item, well-printed, much better and larger format than previous edition, had Pelican large format edition in 1970's, lent it to a boyfriend who thought Alice was 'childish c**p', needless to say never got it back, this will do very well! Integrated notes from 'More Annotated Alice' very useful, though a bit hard to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Art Deco Ceramics, 29 Jun. 2011
Great little book, very useful, like all Shire books, usually can only get them at museums ans stately homes, not easily here in Northern Ireland.....Prompt delivery, no problems, will certainly order again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Samuel Stokes, 21 May 2011
Had read this years ago, and always wanted my own copy....I have all Penelope Lively's other childrens' and adults' novels and rate her very highly. In my opinion the theme matches very well with her adult novel 'Next to Nature, Art' - less serious than some of her later works, but significant concerns just the same, and typical of their time.

This was very nice clean copy, almost mint, and matched my older editions, excellent transaction.

Great item, always like to have a Kliban calendar (small one goes on toilet door....), getting hard to find in shops. Recognise some of the pictures, that only adds to the attraction!
