contains nothing that is not available on the internet. Contains spelling mistakes. can't be more than four or five pages.Doesn't even include the poem itself. Come on Amazon don't lower your standards just to make a few pennies.Shame on you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Read the small print if buying the kindle version, 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased the kindle version of The Aeneid translated by Robert Fagles from the page advertising Fagles version (Which I already have a copy) I intended to test the brilliant audio reading facility on the Equally brilliant Kindle Fire. Anyway to cut a long story short, after I had downloaded the kindle version I noticed that it was NOT the Fagles version but Dryden's version.Annoying don't you think. I checked the small print but nothing lead me to believe that it was not the Fagles version.
OK it only cost £1.02. But it was not the version as advised. I'm more angry with myself than with Amazon.

1.0 out of 5 stars A complete con, 10 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Sanford Design kneaded Eraser, Large As shown on the Amazon page is not the product sent to me. When I complained they initially said that the product they sent was exactly as shown on Amazon which was a blatant lie.
I had to spend time copying the Amazon page and sending it the the supplier who were reluctant to admit their error. Eventually they decided to give me a refund.
Incidentally the picture currently shown on Amazon is not the same as the picture attached to this request for my comments
My advice, keep your eye on this supplier. And where goods are supplied by a third party don't get fobbed off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product backed up with excellent Delivery, 26 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product is of excellent quality and comes with a few good ideas of how to best use the chart when teaching the grandkids.Excellent service. The extra bonus is the fact the Amazon used DPD for delivery. They actually e mail you to tell you that delivery will be within a specific hour. Brilliant service. Amazon you should use them every time

5.0 out of 5 stars multiple copies, 13 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've now ordered four copies the first one was for my wife and the others for her friends who marvelled at the cooking results. Just one thing Hope that Amazon don't send you book by The Home delivery network because the service offered by this company is poor. They take much longer than alternative carriers in my experience and they don't seem to bother to update their tracking system at all. Great book shame on Amazon for falling down on the service it provides

4.0 out of 5 stars a problem with mp3, 10 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
May I start by saying I already have the Assimil Spanish Course in MP3 and it works brilliantly. The French course didn't start well (A bit like real life I suppose) Sorry I digress. Firstly my i tunes didn't recognise the mp3 disc. When I eventually managed to copy the disk to I tunes the tracks were not in the correct order.I've since cobbled together the playlist and am working through the course. The audio readings are not as well spaced as the Spanish course which has a slight pause after each sentence, giving you a moment to reflect on what you had heard and have a quick glance at the English translation.So I may well buy the audio CD's and try them.
Foolishly I also purchased a 12month usage of the e course. Don't waste your money the book and CD is by far the better option. And don't try to contact the help line. When I rang them no-one could or would speak English. You'd think they would give free course to their employees, wouldn't you.
Having read this again it seems more like a moan.But I rate this course a 4 out of five and would highly recommend it. It is a pleasurable way to learn a language.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good enough, 31 Oct 2010
Kindle needs to get its act together if they want the newspapers to succeed. I trialled the Mail along with the independent and have discontinued both of them, mainly because of the clunky way that the kindle handles newspapers. I still took the paper edition, [until today] because an advert appeared for the Ipod version. I own an I pod touch which I bought over a year ago and downloaded the aps. The result is a newspaper with lots of pictures and in colour for wait for it FREE.
I dropped the independent because they have shot themselves in the foot with the introduction of the 20 p mini paper

Good luck whichever choice you make

2.0 out of 5 stars Endangered writer, 23 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I first came across the Jack Reacher series I bought all of the books and read them over a couple of months. Once started I could hardly put a book down.However Childs's last two books have been disappointing and as for "Woth Dying" being a follow on from the nail biting end to 61 hours .Well there is no other word for it but that statement was a down right fib.
Lee Child you are on my endangered writers list, one more strike and your off my reading list
