2.0 out of 5 stars Given up after 20 minutes, will watch again after ..., 27 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Given up after 20 minutes, will watch again after a lobotomy. Action yes, dialogue awful, acting wooden... but give them one thing, they have been true in the awfulness to the original TV show.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very comfortable, not so hard wearing, 3 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased a pair of these three months ago and can't deny that they are very comfortable. Unfortunately after two months the sole is worn through / split (just inside the ball of the foot), so another different make of Chelsea boot is presently on dispatch.

2.0 out of 5 stars Move along, 14 Jun. 2012
I'm half way though this, it's one of the most painful books I've read, however I refuse to be beaten.

History for me is a hobby, relaxing with a good book at the end of the day is a pleasure. I do tend to edge towards narrative history for this reason, to get behind a good story. That is I can appreciate a good history book, a little AJP etc. is not a probelm and I can appreciate it for what it is.

This book being generous is like the simplistic view of the treaty of Versailles, is falls between each point. Not being generous it fails on both points, I am sure Paul is a very intelligent chap, but insight despite the wealth of evidence is few and entertainment is less. Second half to go, I will not be beaten, but it is some effort.

2.0 out of 5 stars Thank goodness it's finished, 3 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Empires and Barbarians (Paperback)
Badly edited, repetitive and a painful read. The comprehensive review of the subject matter is unfortunately mired in the complete confusion of the presentation. This is the first book in a long time that I've seriously considered filling away without completing, but now thank goodness finished it. Unlike many of my history books it will not be coming out to be read again...
