5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant read, 8 Oct 2012
I laughed and laughed - this would be an excellent choice for anyone who needs a pick-me up. The writing is wonderful, his observations are wry and oh-so-true. I see poetry everywhere now, in the English people, language, humour and countryside.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cumbersome, 23 Jun 2008
This is not compatible with Explorer or Windows Media. It has to be used on machines that have downloaded the Digital Wave Software (disc included) therefore it would be extremely cumbersome to use this on any but your own personal PC as that would require downloading software wherever you go. I doubt whether the saved files could be e-mailed.

Apart from that, the quality of playback is extremely poor. It is very hard to hear what is being said on the recorder.

It is very light and plasticky in feel. Not recommended.

Almost as cringe making as the Da Vinci Code. This book was rushed out to cash in on the market created by the Dan Brown hype. It works on the same principle: race against time to overcome the forces of evil. The USP of this book is that the main characters are female, but like Da Vinci it is constructed around the eventual film of the book.

If you appreciate a good read by an author who can engage your mind over a well written plot, do not waste your time on this. It definately will not inspire you.
