4.0 out of 5 stars A dip into book, 23 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not what I expected but a good book to dip into. He has a wonderful approach to life and a simple style of telling it. Much of it is self-help but there are gems hidden there too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy it, 28 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product was very disappointing. I tried to fill it and although the perfum bottle from which I was filling it went down, there was nothing in the atomiser - what a waste of good perfume. Tried again with a cheaper perfume - same happened. I returned this item for a refund.

This review is from: Time (Audio CD)
Rod Stewart can do nothing wrong as far as I am concerned. A little bit repetitive musically, but who cares. Love him.


Girl in a Green Gown: The History and Mystery of the Arnolfini Portrait
Girl in a Green Gown: The History and Mystery of the Arnolfini Portrait
by Carola Hicks
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.69

5.0 out of 5 stars Opened my eyes to paintings, 25 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is beautifully written with only a very small number of pages that slowed me down a bit. Impatience I suppose with progression. However overall I was enthralled. I knew of the painting but as usual looked at it with a blinkered vision; looking at the main image rather than the picture as a whole. This book has aroused a more intense interest in art which I am going to take forward. It has taught me that the backgrounds of paintings are not just there as background, the details tell stories.
I shall begin my further interest by visiting the National Gallery as often as I can, working century by century. I would not recommend this book to anyone who doesn't want to think about what they are reading, who isn't interested in furthering their knowledge. Apart from that READ IT.


Atlantic: A Vast Ocean of a Million Stories
Atlantic: A Vast Ocean of a Million Stories

5.0 out of 5 stars Vastness, 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simon Winchester has taken the Atlantic ocean and its coast lines and drawn a picture of history across it. Imagine if you can, because I couldn't before I read it. From the beginning when ships first dared to sail far enough to discover the world was not flat. The action and importance of the ocean during the WWars, the life of the people through time living on the coasts of Africa and America and other small islands. If you're interested in history from another angle this is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars History teaches, 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had never heard of netsuke before and was enthralled by the history of it all especially this particular set as the author follows them back in time. I read the book about a year ago and was delighted when only a couple of weeks ago on one of the Antique shows a woman had a small collection. It was lovely to put real pictures of them into my mind.
