I am a huge fan of Elizabeth Kostova, The Historian is firmly on my top ten all time best books. I was very eager to get my hands on her second book. After reading it I have mixed feelings. I loved the plot, thought it was very different and interesting. However, she does take her descriptions to the page wasting extreme!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a book!, 18 Oct 2010

He obviously is going to know his stuff about Horticulture, being a gardener, and yes its obvious that anyone presenting this TV show is going to need lots of expert help, who wouldnt! You dont get just one expert who is going to know about eveything from volcanos to ice-cores thats ridicilous! I thought he happened to be the perfect choice to be the presenter, as his voice is pleasent to listen to, and his enthusiasm is… Read more
