2.0 out of 5 stars Hard going, 7 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think I have every book ever written about English grammar -- it's the business I'm in. However, this one I found to be hard going and uninspiring.


Never Go Back (Jack Reacher 18)
Never Go Back (Jack Reacher 18)
by Lee Child
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Good old Jack, 7 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I liked this book, as I did every other Jack Reacher one. Not his best, though I don't think. It has an unsatisfactory ending.

2.0 out of 5 stars So depressing, 7 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book because I heard it being raved about on BBC's "A Good Read". I found it incredibly hard work and one of the most depressing books I've ever read. If you want to read a book which will put you off visiting India, then buy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rather hard going, 7 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Olivier (Hardcover)
I think I have every book written about Olivier. This one is interesting but I found the hundreds of footnotes tedious.

I should have been backing up like this years ago but never got round to it. This marvellous little gizmo lets me back up so easily and quickly.

Strictly English: The correct way to write ... and why it matters

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical Heffer, 29 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although I'm a great Heffer fan, I found this book a trifle pompous - as Mr Heffer is, if course. Nevertheless, it's excellent to have on the English bookshelf as a reference to good practice.

I've been using these wonderful pens for years. Great grip and balance and when it says 'black', it means black.


Painting as a Pastime
Painting as a Pastime

3.0 out of 5 stars A very light read, 29 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Painting as a Pastime (Hardcover)
This is hardly a book, more of a long essay. I won't for ever have it nestling by my easel. Churchill writes well, of course, but this little jotting doesn't say anything about technique at all. I made the mistake of thinking it might be a bit of a 'how to' book.
