Yosemite by Ansel Adams
Yosemite by Ansel Adams
5.0 out of 5 stars Glorious photos, 8 Mar 2013
I gave this book five stars because, let's face it, Ansel Adams deserves no less for his wonderful photography. As a pictorial reference for one of the most wonderful parks in America it's unsurpassed. However I would have liked it to be a little bigger. It doesn't do the photos justice, although having just seen the Ansel Adams exhibition at the Maritime Museum in Greenwich, I would concede that some of his photos in real life aren't the most enormous. It just doesn't really cut it as a 'coffee table' book, and I know what you're all going to say - that it's in the description and what do I expect for the price?

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing tale, 23 Feb 2013
I've come to the end of this fantastic book feeling like I've lived the lives of the people in it. They aren't just characters, the are almost real. It's a fantastic rollercoaster of emotions, there isn't one character that Steinbeck didn't pull me into. Fabulous, a must re-read. I'm sad it's over. I'm tempted to get the film on dvd but I don't want to be disappointed if it doesn't cut the mustard. The book has incredible depth, a story so woven and well written that it has to be read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really frustrated, 28 Sep 2012
I bought this to keep my photos on, some of which were of holidays. I thought they would be safe. I could not have been more wrong. I loaded them on, now approximately 10 months later I cannot access them at all. My memories have been wiped out. I checked they were on there after loading but now the PC won't even recognize there is anything in the USB port. Disappointing doesn't begin to cover it.
