5.0 out of 5 stars Really helpful, 19 July 2011
I'm trying to learn Welsh on my own (courses are hard to come by in Norway). Before I bought this book I'd sort of just pottered around on different websites, picking up bits here and there. This book has been such a great help in bringing it together and bringing order to the chaos in my head.
In hindsight, I should probably have started by getting this book.

I particularly like the exercises at the end of every chapter, as actually getting to apply what I've read is vital to me when I'm learning a new language.

All in all; it's a very good place to start.

I don't know why I bought this book. I knew who Mark Watson was, and I loved his comedy, but I honestly don't know how I got from his stand-up to buying this book.

But I'm very glad I did!

From the few reviews I'd read online, I was expecting a laugh-out-loud book. Instead, I found myself completely enthralled and moved by the story almost immediately. It's funny too, but mostly I was gripped by the story, how well the pieces fit together, how Watson's web spun out, starting with one little event. The language is beautiful, I'd catch myself re-reading bits just because I loved the wording so much.

And how it all comes together, the journey for Xavier (and… Read more

Every once in a while, I find a comedy DVD that has me laughing so hard that I have to pause every five minutes to catch my breath. Enter "Lee Mack Live".

If you're new to Lee's comedy, this is a very good place to start. It's brilliant. Just brilliant. I HIGHLY reccomend it. Just don't attempt to consume any kind of fluid for the duration of it.

And bonus; the 'extras'-bit has Sketch show-clips (my alltime favorite sketch-show). And the 'Behind the scenes'-documentary "To Cartmel and back" (filmed by Lee and support act Steve Williams while on tour) is the funniest DVD-extra I've seen in my life.
