A quick succinct read on the current rail issues at Southern but more than that an analysis of the pitfalls of privatisation

After I reviewed that the item never turned up and I was credited, it finally did and it works fine. I assume the delay was the Royal Mail!

For the price the earphones are fine, perhaps a bit too much treble but OK. Reasonable value though for the price


This Boy
This Boy
by Alan Johnson
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Book, 8 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This Boy (Hardcover)
This is a really well written book about Alan Johnson's early life and growing up in Notting Hill - North Kensington in the '50s and '60s.
I grew up in the the same area just a few years later and it is really hard to believe the poverty and deprivation that existed only a short distance away from my home; at the time I was totally unaware of this. Although entitled This Boy it's really a record of his amazing mother and sister.
I really hope he writes another volume describing how he moved into politics.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superbly readable book about life in Gaza, 16 Jun. 2013
This review is from: No Road Home (Paperback)
If you want to really understand why peace may (will) never come to Palestine you should read this book. Although it is based on the author's experiences in the Gaza Strip around 10 years ago, I suspect that it is just as accurate about the life there today. The author interviews people on both sides (Palestinian refugees as well as Israeli soldiers and settlers) and is well balanced. It's very readable, but I'm afraid there will be no happy ending.

This is an excellent and insightful book on wartime journalism. It is particularly good when James is relating his own experiences.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 23 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good product. Slight issue is that the sound volume on the Nexus 7 is not great from the speakers at any rate at maximum and with the case on it is slightly more muffled.
This is more of an issue with the Nexus than with the case.
The Stylus pen sent free is worth having

This is a funny and moving account of what sport can do for people. It's a great read even if you don't like football. It deserves to be higher in the book lists!
