Baghdad Central
Baghdad Central
by Elliott Colla
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite readable, 13 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Baghdad Central (Paperback)
Interesting and unusual to have an Iraqi-eye view of events. Although the author isn't Iraqi, he writes vividly about feelings and atmosphere in a violent, unpredictable city. Also surprising to find how many Iraquis are devoted to their poetry and poets. Worth a read just to discover the literature which unfortunately doesn't get much of a look-in in the West.


Knife Block Set Quality Russell Hobbs Galaxy 5-Piece Knife Block Set - Black/Stainless Steel Best Quality But Cheap!
Knife Block Set Quality Russell Hobbs Galaxy 5-Piece Knife Block Set - Black/Stainless Steel Best Quality But Cheap!

2.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin, 18 Jun. 2014
Looks better in the picture than in real life - the knives are good looking and do the job. The block looks like wood in the picture, but behaves and looks like a tin can in reality. A horrible sound putting them in and taking out. Cheap. Okay for looks, but not quality.


Ligne ouverte
Ligne ouverte
by Gonzague Saint Bris
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for learning French, 17 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an intermediate French learner, I dipped into this not expecting much. I understood surprisingly well, and the stories were interesting and memorable. I was proud of my recall when I saw a documentary about Orcas on TV and remembered the interview Gonzague had with an Orca trainer in the book. My French teacher wants a copy as the dialogue is so colloquial and original, so this one's for her!

I look at ads in a whole different way now. Yikes! It's got me studying them for embeds and subliminal messages. As good as a vaccination against consumerism.

Queffelec should be better known. Her subtle interpretations, immense tone control, and understanding of these Sonatas make this recording rise above the show-offs who play Scarlatti so fast that the notes whizz past and drop into a bucket somewhere. Her choice of tempo illuminates the music and releases Scarlatti's quite complex harmonies and structures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just As Good Second (and third) Time Around, 22 Jun. 2013

This review is from: The Vikings [DVD] [1958] (DVD)
Apart from Tony Curtis' camp little shorts, this wears well. The photography is outstanding, and the attempt at character complexity works. Scenes are memorable and Fleischer's direction gets better and better with each viewing.

These guys have basking voices, romantic Mexican orchestrations, and an all round great sound. Sit down with a glass of something, relax and be carried off to Mexican paradise.

Great service from the dealer - it arrived promptly and was easy to assemble. Looks good because it's light and unobtrusive. Should have bought it ages ago.


The Untold History of the United States
The Untold History of the United States

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoa There Cowboy, 22 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stone et al has done it again. This comprehensive, thoroughly researched book blows the cover on secret and not so secret government dealings. Of course, many have suspected a "secret history" for a long time, but all this in one book should come with a government health warning.
