3.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't recommend it to a friend to be honest, 5 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK but nothing to get excited about. Wouldn't recommend it to a friend to be honest. Marilynne Robinson is my favourite author in this genre and nothing comes close to her observations of family life mid america in the 1940's and 50's. Read 'Gilead' and 'Home' if you want to see really outstanding craftsmanship.

I am Sheldon Cooper now! Perfectly folded shirts and tops, and it makes more room in the wardrobe and drawers. YAY!

1.0 out of 5 stars A cure for insomnia!!!!, 27 Mar. 2011
This book is as interesting as someone relating their dreams to you, over 350 pages. GROAN OUT LOAD.

Unbelievably boring, dry, tedious and dull. I have found nothing in it, which hasn't been covered more memorably and dramatically by other authors. Reminds me of an insurance company inventory. The author should stick to pottery in my opinion. It is like reading a reasonably written undergraduates' thesis on a fairly ordinary but rich family of bankers!!! None of the Ephrussi family seem to have ever done any charitable works with their immense wealth, which then might warrant this attention. Apart from opening a school for 25 children they have contributed nothing of note to society. Is it just me who is the only disillusioned punter amongst the worshiping throngs of the chattering classes?

My family are more interesting, (and frankly that's not saying much), but I wouldn't dream on inflicting them on the reading public.

3.0 out of 5 stars all style no content, 27 Mar. 2011
This is like a brightly coloured toy kettle. It takes ages to boil, doesn't switch off for about 30 seconds when it does boil. Doesn't allow you to re-boil if the water is still warm! The lead does not coil round underneath the base!!! For a design led item by Bodum I am surprised they put thier name to this jumped up travel kettle. Will have to buy another one now to replace it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased, 23 Mar. 2011
Very quick delivery from Lotta, and very pleased with the clogs. Look very similar to the Hasbeens which are over twice as expensive. They are very comfortable and I look forward to wearing them with jeans, dresses and everything this summer. Also add a good 2 inches to my height!
contacted Lotta for advice on maintaining the wood and leather, and got immediate and useful feedback. Excellent service!!!


The Lacuna
The Lacuna

Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A Lacuna in my Lacuna!!, 13 Oct. 2010
This review is from: The Lacuna (Paperback)
My copy of the Lacuna has a partial copy of another book in the middle of it. A little joke by the bookbinders maybe, but v. frustrating for the reader, as it is at the point where Trotsky is assassinated and so I had to get hold of a library copy to find out who did it. The excerpts from the other book are absolutely rubbish by the way, and jump around all over the place. I started reading them by m istake thinking it was relevent to the plotline somehow. If the bookbinder responsible is reading this, in my opinion it is mildly amusing but I have wasted my £... plus carriage on a redundant book...

Very strange business, I am sure someone somewhere is laughing their head off!!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent service, 5 Aug. 2010

Got the 2 DVDs within 48 hrs and they are brilliant. BBC childrens TV at it's best. Recommended for any age group even teenagers, as they are seen as surreal by anyone over 12! Bring back the Clangers I say.
