5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta love the South!, 9 Mar 2005
I am a serious Beautiful South fan. There are a lot more of us about than you might think. Just go to one of their concerts for proof (I've been twice). There still aren't enough though, so buy this underrated, excellent album. However, if you aren't familiar with The Beautiful South at all, you might want to start with Blue is the Colour or Quench. I started with this one and they're now my favourite band, but I'll admit it is a little bulky. Still, once you're a fan, bulk is better.
Not the place to start, but still one of their best, combining quality and quantity.

Okay, here it is, put simply:
-The click wheel is cool and easy to use. In fact, the usability of the iPod in general is amazing.
-The iTunes system works ridiculously well, with the Music Store being unbelievably good.
-20GB is sufficient for most people's entire music collection.
-This one may fluctuate between people, as some have problems here, but I found the software and wires etc. easy and quick to use. I just plugged everything in, followed the instructions and in half an hour (this was Christmas morning) was set up with 5GB of music on my iPod. I didn't need to read the instruction manual for more than a couple of minutes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great as a stand-alone, 16 Jun 2003
I admit that I have never read Duncton Wood or Duncton Found. I picked a hardback copy of this book up in a Christmas fete for 50p, thinking it looked okay. As it turned out it was more than okay. It was absolutely incredible.
How Mr. Horwood managed to write this book I don't know. It is massive and often looks like it is about to reach a dead, but never does. It's like it's already happened, the way he never comes to an uneasy halt despite a complex plot.
You really will come to love characters, good or evil, and find the death scenes very moving. I really must get hold of Duncton Found and find out what happens with the coming of the Stone Mole...
Superb Reading!
