5.0 out of 5 stars An old but unmatched masterpiece, 5 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A masterpiece in every way: Shakespeare for the cinema as it should be and which has never been matched in my opinion. Wonderful B & W cinematography, some surprisingly fine performances from names that would only become famous later in their careers and to add the magical touch: Mendelssohn's lovely music

5.0 out of 5 stars The best blended Scotch whisky, 5 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Teacher's Highland Cream is no longer stocked by Waitrose nor Ocado and was not listed on Tesco's web site the last time I searched. I don't know what has happened to force this superb blend from the shelves but I was pleased to find it through Amazon. My wife and I have a wee dram with a splash of club soda every evening before dinner, nothing else matches this very fine blend in our opinion. Don't worry about glass bottles coming through the Post or a courier service: the packing on my multi-bottle order was exemplary in all respects.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and essential piece of equipment, 24 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Michelin Digital Tyre Pressure Gauge is very well reviewed by other Amazon purchasers and I am happy to join those giving a big thumbs-up. It is neat, lightweight but well-engineered, accurate and and easy to use. I bought two, one for my own car the other for a keen motorist family member who is also happy with this excellent and essential piece of equipment.

An excellent back-up/replacement for the original at a keen price. Performance appears to be equal to the supplied original.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overweight for its capacity, 11 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered two of these Spanish-made 1.0 litre water jugs and they were delivered quickly and perfectly packed. The capacity is what we needed, especially in a hot summer, but the thickness of the glass makes the empty weight excessive in my view - ca. 900 gms or 2 lb. Even empty this is quite substantial and not what was expected. When the jug is almost full it weighs about 4 lb, too much for ease of use. It would be useful if vendors of this kind of ware indicated the weight as well as the dimensions and capacity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Robert Redford, 9 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Following the very successful film Out of Africa there have been several biographies of the principal real-life characters, Karen Blixen and Denys Finch Hatton and their times - roughly the first three decades of the 20th C. Sara Wheeler has undertaken an enormous amount of diligent research to bring us Too Close to the Sun, the most comprehensive biography I have seen of the latter, an English aristocrat to whom Karen Blixen gave herself, body and soul, in what seems to have been a largely unrequited relationship. Karen was undoubtedly a snob and even her concern for the Africans on her lands, the only redeeming feature tempering that defect, could be seen as treating Africans more as children or pets than fellow human beings. However, she was honest and straightforward and the genius that some thought worthy of a Nobel Prize for Literature was not far from the surface during her relationship with Finch Hatton. What Karen Blixen realised too late was that Finch Hatton had little concern for anybody but himself. Sara Wheeler's beautifully written dispassionate biography makes his inherent selfishness all too clear and for this reader gave her account of his life a mesmeric fascination. Finch Hatton was a man of his class and his time; a member of the English aristocracy (far removed from Robert Redford's anti-Brit American adventurer) and committed to King and Country and Class above all else. His upbringing as the younger son unlikely to succeed to the family title may well have formed his character. There is much in his life we can admire, a certain grittiness about getting on with what has to be done, courage in war and in the wilderness and the usual manly virtues. He formed enduring friendships within his class, which eased his passage through society wherever he found himself; he was admired by men and adored by women. Sara Wheeler tells it all, glosses over nothing and makes her biography of Denys Finch Hatton essential reading for any student of his times and the great social changes that have ensured those days are gone forever. Strongly recommended.
