2.0 out of 5 stars Right-wing propaganda?, 1 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We have enjoyed The Good Wife, and looked forward to this season. But I have become more and more uneasy about the message this show is sending. The general tone is anti-Democrat. There have been at least two negative references to Palestinians, a running theme about disapproval of gay marriage, and in one episode an outburst about Obama and the Clintons changing their minds on matters of principal. The series now seems to be declining into a glorification of extreme wealth and denigration of the Democratic party. I hadn't noticed this in previous seasons, but this is an unsettling and disturbing development.


How to Really Talk About Books You Haven't Read
How to Really Talk About Books You Haven't Read
by Henry Hitchings
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.99

2.0 out of 5 stars How to bluff your way in literature, a bit., 1 Oct. 2015
Not as profound or interesting as Bayard's 'How to Talk About Books You Haven't Read'; more of a 'how to bluff your way in literature'. Stick with the original.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing., 22 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite disappointing. The Amercuns don't seem to know how to do the 'fake documentary'. Very weak material. Perhaps it picked up as it went along.

3.0 out of 5 stars A fine madness. Just don't let him near the servants..., 22 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not quite what I hoped. People had talked about his music scores, but although he uses musical symbols they seem to me to be purely decorative. A fine madness, though.

A very enjoyable novel looking at a legendary period of Classical history from an unusual perspective. I look forward to reading the others in the series.

Maid Margaret: Volume 2 (The Galloway Collection)
Maid Margaret: Volume 2 (The Galloway Collection)
by S. R. Crockett
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Maid of Galloway tells her story., 10 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed this even more than 'The Black Douglas', an earlier novel in which The Maid appears as a child. Here, she is the narrator, looking back over her turbulant life. Dated, somewhat, of course, but acute in its observation of life and landscape - wonderfully evocative. Buy both - but this is not exactly a sequel and can be happily read on its own.


Kings and Kingship in Early Scotland
Kings and Kingship in Early Scotland
by Marjorie Ogilvie Anderson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £25.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars, 28 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A classic, but still valuable study. Now reprinted with a new introduction by the redoubtable Nicholas Evans.


Mahler: Das Klagende Lied
Mahler: Das Klagende Lied

5.0 out of 5 stars A very fine 'Klagende Lied'., 28 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I still have, but daren't now play, an original vinyl copy of this very fine reading of the revised version of 'Das Klagende Lied'. Sounds almost as good on CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars A triad of excellent Coen Brothers movies, 25 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A triad of excellent Coen Brothers movies. I have seen them all in the past, but it's nice to have them all packaged together like this, at a very reasonable price.

Einhell GH-BC 25 AS 25cc Dual Purpose Petrol Brushcutter/ Grass Trimmer with Autochoke
Price: £114.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy but not too heavy., 15 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sturdy medium-weight strimmer and brushcutter; running well. Was not too difficult to put together, although, as usual, the instructions are minimal - just a few cryptic diagrams.
