5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the film, 30 May 2008
If you love the film you will love this! A few bits differ from the film but makes it more interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh Aloud!!, 16 July 2006
By it if you want a goo, simple but really funny book to cheer you up!

He writes as he speaks and he is the sort of person you would want at your party - brilliant bit of work!

2.0 out of 5 stars not his best, 9 July 2006
I have read and enjoyed most of his works but this one was hard going - in fact boring. I hoped for much more real life account on the frontier soldier, but he goes on and on about the top political level of governing India which is not the title of the book!

I might go back to it (only got a few chapters in) but I will need to be bored.

2.0 out of 5 stars Go for the original, 27 Feb. 2005
Sorry, had i read this before Major Tony Clunns book, in Quest of the Lost Legions I would have given a high star rating, but remember, Maj Clunn actually discovered the battlefield site and has spent nearly 20 years living close to it and with the working with the archeologists and historians. I have been to a meeting with him and it is his lifes passion, which quickly becomes apparent in his book. Also Maj clunn has put a bit of history fiction in it to make it more real, because it was about real people. Go for in Quest of the Lost Legions first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gaggia Coffee Deluxe Espresso & Cappuccino Maker, 11 Oct. 2003
OK, after a 8 months of living outside of Italy we decided we could not live without real Espresso and bought this one from Amazon.
We have only had it two days and so far have come up with these conclusions:
1. Read the instructions fully all of the way through before attempting to swtich on! They are translated direct rfom Italian and Italian instructions are terrible for cutting corners.
2. Give it a good flush through with water before use but NEVER pump whilst it is empty (they mention this at the end of the instructions!!)
3. Use the measuring spoon otherwise the handle won't fit.
4. Before getting one read a site like [...] The brewing guide you get with it is pretty poor.
As for price, I searched the web high and low and I could not find it cheaper than Amazon, however, this morning I saw it for 135 at [...] click on SHOP - typical!!! My one complaint is that you do not get the "Perfect Crema Device", which you have to buy additionally. The creama (brown foam) is for me one of the best bits of Espresso and i think Gagia are being a bit stingy, however some sites doubt that you really need it if you use good freash coffee.
Overall, an excellent machine but worth doing some Espresso reading on beforehand.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true insight into the History of modern Naples, 27 Feb. 2001
I have lived in Naples for 7 months and this book really answers a lot of questions visitors may have when then come to Naples. Naples is a unique city an Normal Lewis gets right into the heart of the Neopolitans.
Well worth reading.
