In My Own Words:
Living quietly (with six granddaughters?) in Co Clare. I empathise with the sentiments expressed in the programme "Grumpy Old Men".

I'm interested in literature and like nothing better than settling down with a good book. I'm an amateur photographer and I like watersports. Like me, my knees are getting old, so I've reluctantly given up on hill walking. I'm on the baord of managem… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Ukrainian phrasebook, 20 Aug 2010
Generally these phrasebooks have the local language, an English translation and then a phonetic pronunciation guide. This one has also added the Cyrillic script which makes it somewhat confusing. It's OK but there are probably better books out there

This is a subject in which I'm extremely interested. As well as this book, I also bought the author's book on the Reformation. I couldn't read the Reformation at all because the print size was so small. I normally read a book in a few hours but I couldn't do that with this one.This book is excellent as regards its subject matter but I'm not that happy with the print size and I've asked Amazon to clearly indicate where the print size of any book is smaller than normal.

2.0 out of 5 stars A great book spoiled, 8 Dec 2009
I'm fascinated by this period of history, so this was the book for me. Not so! I was aghast when I opened it to find the print size was so small. In addition, it seemed that the line spacing was more compact than normal. I tried my best to read the book but couldn't read more than a few pages at a time. I've asked Amazon to warn prospective readers of books with small print
