3.0 out of 5 stars okay - but, 8 Nov 2012
the magnet in the lid DOES NOT affect the screen in soite of what other reviews say.
The case is well made and certainly protects the phone very well. Having said that it does make an already big device quite a lot bigger and it makes a quite light device considerably heavier. The big downside of a case like this is that it makes using the camera almost impossible. I've stopped using this but will probably dig it out now and then.

Thank you Andy Kershaw for taking me back to the days when your 'world music' broadcasts were my musical meat and drink.

Thanks Don for coming up with this idea. Setting a story across two time periods is not a new idea but doing so in such a specialist area of interest surely is. One of the strengths of this story is that the author clearly knows the world(s) that it's set in. Too often one is left to wonder as to why a writer would bother to conduct so much reseach on a setting / topic when it is obviously so much wiser to write about what you undertsand already! Very happy to be seduced back into listening to early music in this way - I had abandoned it completely. Have ordered a second copy for a friend and no doubt will be contemplating the odd CD or two in the very near future.
