1.0 out of 5 stars Mini Pan, 2 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're planning on a normal sized angel food cake, this is not the tube pan for you. I can't imagine why anyone would want to make a half-sized cake. It's not worth the bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawed but great, 9 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Reilly - Ace Of Spies [DVD] (DVD)
No, there is a lot of speculation and readjusting of events, but that you can call artistic license and certainly makes a great entertainment. Watching it has inspired me to read both the Spence and Lockhart biographies. (Don't bother with the Spence.)

My only real gripe is the credits. When the novel The Gadfly (presumably based on Reilly) was made into a movie, Shostakovich wrote the score. The Gadfly Suite is used for the title sequences and variations on it are used throughout the film. There seems no credits for Shostakovich and someone else is listed as composer and conductor. Doesn't this tinge on plagerism?

1.0 out of 5 stars Good Spy; Bad Book, 9 Aug. 2011
As many reviewers have said, the scholastic research for this book is tremendous, albeit not as complete as it could be.

One problem I find is the facts of Reilly's life are juxaposed with speculations that frequently obscure which is which.

My main objection is the grammar, punctuation, etc., which is distracting if not obnoxious. It seems (with only a very slight exageration) that there is a mistake on every other page. Not only that, many of the errors are those usually made only by a non-native speaker of English. If Spence has difficulties with the language, where are the editors? I fear I will be reluctant to buy further works from such a sloppy publisher.

Buy Robin Lockhart's book. He is the son of Sir Robert
Lockhart(the part played by Ian Charlwson in the TV series), someone who knew Reilly personally .

2.0 out of 5 stars Horrors, 28 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First, the DVD (2 disk) I received was technically very good; apparently re-issued since some of the other reviews.

However, the film itself doesn't hold up. The only really chilling part is the beginning, on the moors. The film doesn't quite seem to know whether its horror, comedy, or a rather crude mix of both. The acting can be trite, the scene transitions are jerky, and the characters are not filled out enough to be really interesting.

You have English actors using American English vocabulary, and the huge multi-car smashup that U.S. audiences seem to love (but has no real meaining to the plot of this film), and the end leaves you rather hanging, albeit probably thankful that it's finally over.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money, 28 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"International", well maybe. Most of the recipes give no clue as to what country or cuisine they come from. Some others give a sub-title that's informative if you can identify the language source.

There is no text apart from the recipe itself. All you have is a collection of recipes - and not that good. Most are "old hat" and can be found in miriad of other cookbooks. In addition, there seems an aversion to herbs and spices. (Who ever heard of Swedish meatballs seasoned with only parsley?) The compiler seems to have heard of thyme and paprika but little else.

A boring compendium of boring recipes. Save your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eat My Globe, 3 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent, informative, and amusing food travelogue. I certainly agree with most of the author's viewpoints. I found only one error, and that is that the Galata Bridge in Istanbul does not go from Europe to Asia and crosses the Golden Horn, not the Bosphorus.

Buy it. It's a good read.
