Mountains of the Mind by Robert Macfarlane

This is a fabulous book, thoroughly entertaining. It is factually very interesting, presenting a synopsis of the history of mountains from prehistoric times to the modern age. In addition, the impact of mountains, and how we view them, is woven throughout the book. It's compelling reading - tragic at times, exciting at others. I'm not a mountain climber or even a prolific walker, but this book really fulfilled my enjoyment of landscapes and their influence over our feelings and moods. Not a dull moment and a lasting feeling...

5.0 out of 5 stars What a revelation !, 8 Sep 2012
OK, I'm not a big fan of gadgets, but my husband persuaded me to buy the toast n egg as I do like a proper breakfast ! As gimmicky as it sounds, it really works. Within a few mins you have a poached egg and toast with very little mess to clear up. The boiled egg facility also works perfectly and is much quicker and less fuss than using the hob. The toaster is consistent and easy to adjust for large items or frozen bread. Honestly, I'm so glad we decided yo buy the toast n egg. No mess, no fuss and less time than conventional cooking.

I'm not at all disappointed - they are very practical and a joy to use. The items have been cleverly designed to optimise their use, the shape is perfect for the task (unlike some utensils which are too big to fit in the corners !), and the balanced designed is perfect for keeping surfaces cleaner (although there are always drips). I had read that one limitation was that the handles melted if touching the side of hot pan - I personally don't find this a problem, but it is worth noting. I haven't put them in the dishwasher and so far they have… Read more
