The Streets
The Streets
Price: £2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Jolly good read., 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Streets (Kindle Edition)
Excellent & fast passed novel about clashing values, class expectations & eternal verities. Somers Town is evocted in all of its' Victorian squalor, while also reflecting its' strong sense of community and its' history of poverty & deprivation. Good use of social comparisons. Almost Dickensian in its' characterisation, but without Dickens' wordiness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff, although, maybe a little too big?, 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good, well made earings, however, maybe a little bit too big for 'sleepers,'? However, they make excellent cap badges.

Would recommend them to all potential Taoists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I was looking for., 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exactly what I have been looking for, for some time; small, silver jewellery is easy to access. However, good, small gold earings are not.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing trot through our joint history., 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good read that is heavy on good quotations & old jokes. Not much, though, of up to date research; what people in both Scotland & in the rest of Britain feel is happening now, or what really matters and has kept us together or is, possibly, going to tear us apart. Why, for example, Nationalism, surely a discredited & disreputable creed in the rest of the UK, is now acceptable politically, socially & morally?


Parade's End
Parade's End

Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful., 9 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Parade's End (Paperback)
Something to go with Robert Graves & Sigfried Sasoon; in some ways a more modern book than Birdsong but also quite revelatory about past ways of thinking.


Dominion
Dominion
by C. J. Sansom
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative 'what if' kind of a book., 9 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dominion (Hardcover)
Enjoyed it immensely, though I thought that it did lack some of the atmosphere of Homeland. Plausible story & a good warning on the dangers of parochial nationalism.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new & eclectic choice., 9 Jan. 2013

Unusual & delightfully varied choice of poems, covering some of lifes watersheds; still reading it & still enjoying it. Good to keep on the bedside table or to read with the coffee & toast before facing the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent & erudite., 9 Jan. 2013

A full life & an honest account of it; from school to the army, the Courtold & Christies, a wonderful account from a bohemian within the establishment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brought a big, nostalgic, smile to the face of my givee., 9 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems to have been a great success; so much so, that I think that the person that I gave it to will be buying more, in the series, quite soon.

Another present for a pal; he appears to like both films, very much. I've always enjoyed The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and take any opportunity to dance The Time Warp!
