3.0 out of 5 stars Quite interesting - a bit dreary, 31 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think a lot of this music is rather dull and over-rated. The notes accompanying the CD were more interesting than the CD itself.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dreary, 31 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Daughter Of Time (Paperback)
This book is already very dated - particularly in its description of the relationship between the narrator and the young woman he likes. I think the book is pitched at adolescents, to try to turn them on to history. For an adult reader, it just doesn't work.

Great British Bike Rides: 40 classic routes for road cyclists

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating survey, 31 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Barter describes the rides in great detail, making you long to try them out. The photographs are beautiful and so much important information is given about each ride. Even if you are not a cyclist, this is a lovely book to browse.

She's a very good story teller, with very interesting subject matter. It's hard to put down. She writes very well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 31 Aug. 2013

An interesting writer, very idiosyncratic. The stories aren't like anything else I've encountered. There is a strange beauty to a lot of them.

It's a shame there is no libretto included. Otherwise this is a good inexpensive introduction to the opera. Good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good performance, 31 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating compilation of beautiful works. I chose the CD for the Bartok, which I have always loved, but was very grateful to get the Ligeti and Eotvos as well. The Ligeti is particularly fine.

Disturbing and beautiful, especially the title story. She writes so well. Her subject matter is dark and dangerous - the stories are haunting.

Intelligent, moving and very well written. I enjoyed it as much as anything I've read this year. It's a worthy prize winner.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's not robust enough, 31 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's too flimsy. I have hard, shallow soil in my garden and cannot get the support pole in to sufficient depth. It keeps falling over and the birds ignore it.
