1.0 out of 5 stars Agonisingly slow and confused, 20 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Luminaries (Kindle Edition)
I hate abandoning a book and am a voracious reader. But after 250 pages I really had enough. If I want to read a Victorian novel I'd read Trollope .

5.0 out of 5 stars Poetry most certainly but such fun, 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are narrative poems, little novels but very short and wonderfully funny. You will not regret buying this and reading it aloud to your friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant device, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this on the recommendation of my son. It is an absolutely wonderful device at a very reasonable price and makes redundant the need for "Smart TVs"; Can't imagine why it is so little known.

4.0 out of 5 stars well worth the trouble., 30 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A remarkable, detailed study of one particular village on troubled times. By no means an easy read, but very informative and well worth the trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid recording - wonderful music, 9 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Grechaninov: Vespers (Audio CD)
This recording is very impressive. I hadn't heard of the Holst Singers but they obviously know their business. The singing is smooth and unstrained and the essential quality of this typically Orthodox Church Music comes across beautifully. A musical delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent device, poor instruction booklet, 23 Dec. 2010
It is best to operate this device near eye level, for as with a laptop the display is clearer or not according to the viewer's postion. It is very easy to use once you get the idea, and if you happen to be using film in longish strips it is even faster. If you have a lot of photos to scan it is best to do them all on the same SD card (2GB seems to handle a vast number) so that the photos carry the numbers in sequence; if you cleared the SD card before another batch you would have pictures with the same number, causing possible inconvenience when sorting the pictures into folders. In short a very good piece of kit, once you have absorbed the instructions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three cheers for Michael Haydn, 5 Aug. 2010
This is wonderful music, beautifully performed. One wonders why Michael Haydn is so little known in comparison to his brother Joseph.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rose unseen, 2 July 2009
This review is from: Lieder (Audio CD)
Fanny's talent must have been as great as that of her brother, to whom all the opportunities were given which were denied to her. These delicate songs offer a wonderful opportunity to appreciate the music which she might have offered posterity if only she had been encouraged to do so. A real delight.
