5.0 out of 5 stars Honestly, I don't usually leave reviews but this series left me, well, frankly having a Mr Darcy moment..., 28 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Outlander Season 1 (Amazon Video)
If you are a true romantic at heart, this series is for you.
It is the perfect blend of chivalry, wonder, and moments of bodice-ripping heavy breathing.
It can be difficult to watch any romance genre with the majority of female protagonists being flaky or reverting to helpless damsel; who (of course) couldn't possibly do anything other than be a victim to her feelings and the will of the men around her. YUCK. But this my romantically swayed friends is not the case with the Sassenach you're about to watch.
It is beautifully shot in Scotland and showcases the stunning terrain. It gives a very Scottish glamour to the countries rich clan heritage not often seen; shown through its settings, costumes and unashamed use of Scottish accents which is brilliant.
Although, most importantly (for me that is) after watching this entire series in one go. I now feel I have had an equivalent to previous generations much discussed Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy moment. And I'm sorry Mr. Darcy but Jamie Fraser just pulls off that white linen shirt much better...repeatedly may I add.
Ladies and Gentlemen prepare to swoon over Jamie Fraser - enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Studying Art or Art History? Theres a reason why this book is on the top of every reading list. Brilliant for Novices too!, 24 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gombrich illustrates all works he references, which actually is both rare in this type of book, and essential. If you're interested in the subject but hate the pomposity usually associated with Art then its great.

For Students: As textbooks go this is a pretty good start to any studies based around Art. It's been a recommended text since the 1960's and quite honestly is just as relevant in its 16th edition today. It is worth knowing Gombrich is noted for his study into Renaissance Art and History, and is criticised for his approach to modern art. That is, to be honest a minor comment to an otherwise great starting point for studies.

Reading for interest: If you're interested in Art or even History in general then this is perfect too. The vast story of the visual arts holds such insight to cultures, traditions, ect. No prior knowledge needed, maybe you're looking for a book to dip in and out of, this is perfect for that too, easy sections with no real heavy reading required.

I would highly recommend this book, intelligently thought through, although slim on modern Art.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for my Niece., 24 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted to buy my Niece a book of traditional tales that her mother could pick and choose what to read her as she grows up that wouldn't patronise her, but a book she could keep.
Having been brought up on tales such as The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Pea and The Ugly Duckling Hans Christian Anderson seemed a great choice.
This edition is perfect for what I needed, very well presented, great range of his writing, and the ultimate test as it withstands being thrown across the room as only small children seem to manage.
Would highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good - I highly recommend., 8 Jan. 2010
The item arrived very quickly; at least within a couple of days of my order being placed, even though it was so close to Christmas.
The ring its self is very nice indeed, and my boyfriend loves it; especially the fact that the black titanium band around the center is actually a spinner. This is a great design feature and earned me extra points with my boyfriend for it.
I'm told it is a very comfortable fit, and it looks very chic and stylish.
I would defiantly recommend this item weather you're looking for a wedding ring as it is listed, or even if you're looking for an attractive piece of jewelry for yourself or someone special in your life.
