5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read, March 7, 2007
This review is from: Bestiary (Mass Market Paperback)
What a great read; I've not been able to put it down and that doesn't happen often enough as far as I'm concerned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Projects, February 2, 2007
This book is full of beautifully photographed and well-written patterns for a variety of projects; I began two of them immediately. There is an excellent "how to" section at the back with super close-up photos and clear explanations of how to make each type of stitch, including the Tunisian stitch.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Little Gem, November 15, 2006
This small pocket book is absolutely indispensible. It conjugates the 300 most commonly used verbs but contains an index of 1000 more verbs conjuged like one of the 300. It has one of the most unique and useful features of any verb conjugation book I have seen: words not pronounced per the usual rules have an ` (accent mark) over the vowel that receives the stress. This is invaluable when working on one's own, to avoid mis-learning pronunciation when you cannot check with a native speaker. I actually prefer this smaller book to it's big brother, 501 Italian Verbs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite Book, November 14, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is an exquisitely-produced book. While not a "scholarly" tome (it isn't intended to be one after all) it is an excellent and interesting read and for many who have little knowledge of the time period, it would be a first step to learning more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly Enjoyable, October 30, 2006
This was a great read; unfortunately it only lasted two days because I couldn't put it down. I especially enjoyed the manner in which the storylines were interwoven, almost a story within a story, like the Arabian Nights. Due to the "grittiness" of the characters it would be easy to overlook important and interesting observations on the human condition; several passages made me stop and ponder about life, attitudes, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Dictionary, July 30, 2006
As with the Webster's New World French and Italian dictionaries, this is excellent. I find everything I look for and more. There is the added advantage of a pronunciation guide for the English and Spanish entries, a feature sadly lacking in many other otherwise good dictionaries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Workbook, July 30, 2006
This review is from: Italian Verb Workbook (Paperback)
I use this excellent workbook to enhance my classroom work; in some cases I was able to better learn a concept due to this workbook. It is very well organized, the information is reliable and there are plenty of exercises for the dedicated student; there is a complete answer key in the back of the book.
