1.0 out of 5 stars Shameful!, 2 Mar 2014
I suggest you only buy this book if you've never read the original Jane Austen version! I think it's shameful that the Publishers, Harper Collins, and the author, Joanna Trollope, have got away with publishing this. My hard back version has an rrp of 18.99 and I can only imagine what profit the publishers are making from it. If it were any other item, I'd be asking for a refund under the Sale of Goods Act, only it was bought for me as a birthday present and so I can't even contemplate that route, even if it was available to me.

Vote for Caesar: How the Ancient Greeks and Romans&hellip by Peter Jones

If you like Jeremy Clarkson's style of writing and you know a little about ancient history then you will enjoy this book. I found it highly entertaining (if a little politically incorrect!) and think the author has hit many nails on the head here.
After numerous wry smiles and nods of the head I don't think I could have written anything better myself. It is perhaps not the sort of book you will ever see on an educational reading list, but I will be sharing it with family members and ensuring it is kept on the bookshelf for another read in due course. Well Done Peter Jones and thank you for this enjoyable read.
Harry Potter: Page to Screen by Bob McCabe
My parents bought this for me for Christmas and I have been completely unable to put it down!

It is called "Harry Potter: Page to Screen: The complete Filmmaking Journey" and you can see why... It is definitely the FULL thing!!! 530 or so pages to get your teeth into!

It is an incredible (and huge) book full of everything diehard potter fans would want to know. It is filled with hundreds of top-quality photos, sketches, and information, including all the detail.

it is a fantastic keepsake for all memories of the books and films, with extra facts about them that you never knew.
