In The Key of Genius: The Extraordinary Life of Derek Paravicini
In The Key of Genius: The Extraordinary Life of Derek Paravicini
by Adam Ockelford
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting on musical development, 23 Aug. 2016
This account was fascinating and I thoroughly recommend it to everyone.
In some ways, I would have welcomed more detail on Detek's family life, school life and non musical time so as to give an idea of him when he wasn't playing the piano or with Adam.
There are some beautiful passages and the author is honest about his dilemmas.
In the end, the book was supposed to be about Derek's musical development so I guess maybe Adam felt the family side was too intrusive, but it did nag me throughout wondering where his parents were and how much decisions were made by them, how much they understood him or participated. As it stands, it looks a bit like Derek was exclusively in the care of Adam and Nanny with occasional visits from mum at concerts and almost no relationships with siblings after moving to Linden Lodge.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good indeed and cheap to run., 12 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for my daughter for university while living out in an inevitably cold damp house. Fits a double bed really well and is really toastie despite being 'ecological- I was worried that would mean not very hot but was wrong. Allows her to retire to her bed when heat is hard to find, she even works in bed and it costs pennies to run overnight.
Excellent

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality and look., 12 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent quality. They have a cotton feel and the reflecting dots dont look horribly plastic. The collar is soft and comfortable even in the big size. I found mind a tiny bit big on the tightest setting despite having measured according to the table given. However, managed to force the slider over the stitched bit. Puppy school also said large dogs could have slightly looser collars anyway.
Double rings makes it really secure as if the dog pulls, the clip is between the rings so cannot be wrenched open. Be sure to by a lead with a clip wide enough to take both rings at once. I had to hammer mine around a little.
Really lovely well made, good quality collars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh, 5 April 2016
There is no quibbling with the quality of the writing but I found the stories un-engaging though three did capture my interest more: The Heart fails without Warning, The School of English and The Assassination of MT. But still they left me unsatisfied.
I'm not a great fan of short stories unless they have punch and though the topics had potential, I found the product a bit 'meh' to quote my teen children.
Love her Wolfe Hall series though.

Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for all round info, not for detailed training., 21 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Useful book if you are interested in the origins of the breed and showing. There is some practical information but I was looking for more about training etc...Jude Simmonds is very expert on BMDs and she has written all sorts of useful pamphlets addressing various subjects.

4.0 out of 5 stars good sturdy keyboard but more of a lightshow, 21 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
13 yr old son delighted with this keyboard. But it's not for playing in the dark as the letters don't light up. I find this quite annoying as even with a lamp on I struggled to see the keys but then I'm just a mum with less than good eyes these days. He's happy.
Well built and sturdy kit, mouse looks so cool if you're into that sort of cool....then it's cool.
