3.0 out of 5 stars fine, but..., 5 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfectly fine compilation, just don't be swayed by the 'free audiobooks' blurb on the cover - it's just a link to libravox, which I would suggest is somewhat disingenuous...

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I was looking for, 11 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
as an English speaker studying both Japanese and Mandarin Chinese I found this extremely helpful for comparison purposes and was just the kind of thing i was looking for at a great price and with the convenience of portability. Would equally suit Chinese or Japanese speakers looking to learn one or both of the other languages. Chinese is listed in both simplified and traditional forms.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the way the book is divided into short, 11 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The ideal eBook for on-the-go learning. I love the way the book is divided into short, self-contained chapters which make for very easy study even when you have limited time and prevents you from getting bogged down with excessive amounts of grammar, vocab etc. Can't wait for volume 2!

5.0 out of 5 stars the most exciting lego set ever, 1 Dec. 2014
'The universe is...the most exciting lego set ever'
Fans of Paulo Coelho's 'The Alchemist' will certainly find much to ponder and enjoy in this deep, profound and essentially warm-hearted exploration of the nature of the universe and our own place in it. Taking a quote from Stephen Hawking's book 'The Grand Design' ('philosophy is dead') as a starting point the author delves into the metaphysical background behind scientific study, formulating and proposing her own answer to the much sought theory of everything - which I'm not going to spoil by revealing here. Just keep in mind - nothing is not what it seems.

5.0 out of 5 stars sublime later recording with Chris Barber, 12 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Man Ain't a Man (MP3 Download)
this is a later recording of Jordan's classic tune recorded in the UK with the Chris Barber Band and featuring wonderful trumpet-playing by Barber, beautiful, deeply-felt singing by Jordan and the most sublime alto solo. Of all the pleasure listening to Louis I've had throughout the years, this track, first heard on Humphrey Littleton's show many, many years ago, is far and away my favourite, probably in my top ten of all time.

4.0 out of 5 stars ., 30 July 2013
This review is from: New Horizons (Audio CD)
not sure which album the other 2 reviews here are from but neither one fits this recording. The album contains 16 tracks, I'm assuming from relatively early in Sun Ra's career (I'm no expert on his music) and the sound certainly isn't muddy at all. A very enjoyable album left me wanting to hear more

5.0 out of 5 stars transcendant, 30 Dec. 2012
hypnotic, elegant and sublime. Not sure how authentic the interpretations are as the album had a very 20th century feel to it at times but that is irrelevant, the music is fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars definitely not a toy, 15 Sept. 2010
for some bizarre reason Amazon have this filed under toys and games (I'm giving it 5 stars each for educational value and fun!) - no wonder I found it so hard to find! Anyway if you find Kinski fascinating both as an actor and a human being you should definitely see this. Hypnotic, volatile and compelling, Kinski had an aura about him that was truly unique and watching him try to complete his performance in the face of some unbelievably unruly and ignorant audience members is extaordinary. However, one significant complaint I would have regarding the film is that it does not feature the complete performance. We see Kinski on stage until he abandons the show and then later, after most of the audience has left, his returning to perform for a small crowd in front of the stage but this part is not included in the film, which seems an odd decision. However, having only seen the film and not the dvd I am unable to say if this part of the evening is included in the deleted scenes.

2.0 out of 5 stars never again, 14 Sept. 2010
this is the second samsung phone I've bought, and the last. The functions, ease of use etc are all fine but as with my last samsung that becomes irrelevant since this has a battery life of approximately sod all! I don't even use my mobile that much but I still find it goes from fully charged to flat in less than a day. If you have a phone for even moderate use I would strongly recommend you steer clear not just of this phone but from the brand in general.
