Survival in the Killing Fields
Survival in the Killing Fields
by Haing Ngor
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.22

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Must Read., 6 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the best books I have read. I visited the Killing Fields this year. This is a very harrowing book to read. Its much much more graphic than the movie. Its likely to make most people feel very uncomfortable. The tale is a tragic one too, its very hard to comprehend the horror, and so recent too. I highly recommend this book.

excellent product overall. looks very nice when complete. A bit fiddly to put together, i did it myself and it took more than an hour- many pieces- but they are all like that now. Robust and weatherproof which is good.

A jumble of non connected information in a very random order. It might be okay for someone who knows nothing and wants to be completely led. But if its a detailed specific guide to the battlefields its not useful. Its more like a regular travel book with some assorted WW1 info thrown in. I found it very hard to navigate or find anything worthwhile.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent product. I bought it for my Leica, 16 Sept. 2014
This is an excellent product. I bought it for my Leica. Its made from sturdy solid leather and strong brass fittings. It will last a lifetime and gives a nice retro feel to the camera.

5.0 out of 5 stars very funny, 30 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In 2013 this film is still very funny. I watched it twice recently and it was funnier the second time. Its better if you are English and know something about the historical references. I agree that there are many nuances and inside jokes. Some are quite subtle so it might be better to watch it twice at least. I think it is in my top 10 funniest ever movies I've ever watched.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice but accessories expensive and its cheaper in the US, 16 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had my new wireless kindle now for 2 weeks and I like it. Its light, easy to read, and books download quickly. As a person who has been reading 'books' for over 40 years I was not sure how I would adapt, but its easy to get used to. More and more people are buying them and I can understand why. They are particularly good when travelling to read on planes, trains etc, or for your holiday read. I do have a couple of issues with Amazon though. First in the US, this model is $79, that means its almost half the UK price. Second, the accesories-especially the price of the cover, is ridiculous. 29 pounds for a nylon or neoprene sleeve? I went to a department store and bought a travel wallet that fitted perfectly and it cost me 3 pounds. That's my tip of the day!
