Scotland Yard's First Cases
Scotland Yard's First Cases
Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Scotland Yard in Victorian Times, 5 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent book on Bow street runners and early Scotland Yard cases by the newly formed detective branch. A great deal of research has gone into what is a very detailed read. Some celebrated detectives are mentioned here such as Inspector Whicher who you might remember from the TV drama ' The Suspicions of Mr Whicher, Frederick Abberline on the Ripper case, and Edmund Reid whose character is used for TV Series 'Ripper Street.' The murders are often very grisly even by today's standards, making life difficult for the Investigators who did not have fingerprinting or DNA. A very interesting read.

Perlasca: The Courage Of A Just Man:English Sub-titled [DVD]
Perlasca: The Courage Of A Just Man:English Sub-titled [DVD]
Dvd ~ Luca Zingaretti
Price: £6.58

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie of one man's courage, 3 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Giorgio Perlasca must have been a person without fear for all that he did to effect the rescue of 5,000 Jews. A superb film that held my attention throughout. Luca Zingaretti did an excellent job in the title role, and the 3 hours went by so quickly. If you enjoyed him as Inspector Montalbano, then you will not be disappointed with this


My Sixty Years on the Plains: Trapping, Trading, and Indian Fighting
My Sixty Years on the Plains: Trapping, Trading, and Indian Fighting
Price: £0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Exhilarating book, 4 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read many books about mountain men and their daring deeds. This book is in the same league as The Backwoodsman, which is amazing. You cannot help admiring the courage of the author and his companions who faced death on a daily basis and met it head on.Every chapter shows how their knowledge and skills are put to the test travelling in what was then a wild and untamed land. An exciting read.

Dr. David Livingstone: The Life and Legacy of the Victorian Era's Most Famous Explorer and Pioneer
Dr. David Livingstone: The Life and Legacy of the Victorian Era's Most Famous Explorer and Pioneer
Price: £2.49

2.0 out of 5 stars Too short, 7 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book about the great explorer skips rather too quickly through the great man's life, giving us little insight to his real character. It is also a dull read.


Spaghetti Westerns
Spaghetti Westerns
Price: £4.89

5.0 out of 5 stars A look at the Euro western., 20 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An in depth book about the genre of spaghetti westerns. As a fan of some of them, I was surprised to learn that over 500 of them were made. Here, some of them are reviewed, many long forgotten and others more memorable. From their origins in the early 1960's to the end of the road in the late 70's, this book covers all you need to know. They breathed new life into the western that had become ,dare I say it, a tired formula in the US films. Some may disagree. You will have to make your own mind up. But it is a great read whatever your views.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly amazing tale, 1 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author of this incredible book is unknown, which is a shame. It is the most interesting and often exciting book on the early American frontier that I have ever read. This is the true story a an extremely knowledgeable man who travelled and hunted alone or with a small group of friends in the wilderness. His great skill as a writer, transports us completely into his world, hunting buffalo an bears, describing the beauty of nature all around him, his travels with a small group from Texas to the Rocky mountains, the Bighorns and beyond, and his friendship with some of the Indians, and battles with others. It is the kind of book you will not want to put down, and one I shall look forward to reading again in a few years time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Western with a difference, 25 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Breakheart Pass [DVD] (DVD)
Western with difference. Bronson is on fine form here in Alastair MacLean' s novel that transfers to the screen pretty well. There is no need to go into any detail as the film has been on TV many times, but is always worth another look if you've not seen it for a while. Totally different from other films of the genre as it is rather like a thriller in many ways. Good value for the price.
