Goldsmith: The Vicar Of Wakefield [Nicholas Farrell] [Naxos AudioBooks: NA0152] (Naxos Complete Classics)
Goldsmith: The Vicar Of Wakefield [Nicholas Farrell] [Naxos AudioBooks: NA0152] (Naxos Complete Classics)
by Oliver Goldsmith
Edition: Audio CD
Price: £25.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine old tale, 17 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very well read. This is a landmark book and because of its great age it is possibly easier to listen to (where the audio's reader does some of the interpretive phrasing) than reading for yourself a written edition. It feels like a very old story, but the timeless character flaws and skulduggery continue to reflect life even if the central character seems a little too beatific to be credible (even for a vicar).

5.0 out of 5 stars Dickensian genius, 1 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dickens humour and plays on death, justice and poverty make this one of his classic stories, if a little too drawn out to be his best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Read, 26 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is beautifully read. The book itself is interesting but slow moving and in my opinion falls into the good but not classic category. The characters lack the depth of Austen and the descriptions of industrial England lack the power and especially the humour of Dickens but all the same it is a very satisfactory travelling companion on the car audio.

It does actually work offline - but it's slow loading and I only use it on my Kindle if I've no access to the brilliant free app on the IPhone

4.0 out of 5 stars Very quirky high quality production, 31 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an expensive book which is very well produced and nicely written. The photography is amazing and there are countless pictures here which cannot be found anywhere else. You will learn amazing things about underground tunnels and vaults in London. The caveat is whether you really need to do so. There are only so many brilliant pictures of mysterious ventilation shafts, of disused wartime control centres and former railway yards that can keep me gripped. My view is that it is a little over-zealous and that the pictures could have been scaled back by 50%, the 24 chapters by about 25% and the price similarly and this would have been a 5 star book.

This review is from: Rails (App)
It's not a bad little rail puzzle game but, unlike any other current app I have, prone to crash on my Kindle so hard to be very positive about it.

A brilliant little game. Basically a tightly timed stopping and starting puzzle but challenging to do well and easy on the eye.

Very easy to store and to carry. It's limitation is its height but that is in the product description so no excuses.
