5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Book, July 30 2013
It was much better than book 1 in this series. The songs are all good. The difficulty that could take place will have something to do with having to change to another key signature on a regular bases after the first lesson. I learned how to do that during the time I used the book but I didn't know how upon starting. The first book was awful compared to this one. I will be going on to book 3.

This is the first time that I have read any Sherlock Holmes stories by the author. I went to my Reader for the story and I am following along with the graphic novel. It is accurate. Doyle increases the depth and the gravity of the situation for the characters, in a number of ways needing a master detective.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Less superb, Nov. 6 2012
The artwork in book 2 was more attractive; detailed and interesting drawings. I thought that the story began to work itself loose after beginning nice and strong, however it was saved at the end. I liked some of the new characters. It lost some of its hold however because there was less clear antagonism. The story does continue though, but it could fall into relationships like a lot of modern horror does. I do like a couple of the characters, but relationships are an awful way to digress from the plot unless you are going to kill off the character.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 They hit above average, Nov. 4 2012
My overall impression was that it was good, but it is made for the general audience. Now, I did want a little bit more on the seduction of the antagonist, because it seems like there would have been lots of room to establish more background, but they did instead chose to make things happen at the correct time. The drawings were recognizable, rather than containing an ageless embellishment. There is a family of people with a modern sentiment for life and freedom. Harbored are some supernatural elements developing excluding of understanding.

When I finished the book I thought that I definitely wanted to continue.

The exercises had me thinking about all of the full steps in a linear fashion on the music staff. I would not have thought about it had it not been for the book, so it should help me to be able to read music sheets due to the repetitive filling in of note names and applicable finger numbers. It also covered additional information toward the last section, for example I did not know what a measure was, or how to apply a time signature to each measure, which is something to think about before playing any song.

The exercises are repetitive however they do make sure that you learn about the different types of notes, rests, as well as some special symbols such as the treble clef or sharp and flat signs. It was good to have to actually write the symbols down repeatedly because I am not able to simply memorize just by reference alone. I'm done with it now, and ready for the next book which looks more involved, however I would not call this book easy. It has more to do with getting used to seeing and being familiar with notation.

I just started this book, however I am also working with Scaley Monsters. I sort of thought that this book was going to cover a more advanced technique, where the hand moves further down the neck of the violin, however it is only talking about the placement of the second finger. That is fine and I am now working on both books. The Scaley Monsters does not deal with the second finger spacing until about four songs into the book, and Space It would have a person ready for that. The first song sounds quite good but what I also liked was the exercise of playing each open string in the warm up. After I started out on two octaves in Scaley Monsters I need that exercise, because the bow begins to get away after moving between all four strings. So instead of working with one book before the other, it works just as well to use both at the same time, however the longer songs are found in Scaley Monsters.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best book ever writen, June 14 2012
This book is a contender along with the Bible for being the most inviting book. It is challenging, it is not very easy for a beginner, yet it is more than a selection of music. I will find it useful for half a year. I'm a couple of months in and there is plenty of pages left. It seems to be designed properly, for a beginner. I hardly want to tell anyone about it, but now I have. I might not want anyone else to have it, however now I've ordered more of hers, since this one is working perfect. I'm satisfied with this traditional direction, rather than having boxed in with memorizing against Suzuki.

It need be in Silver, not Gold. It has to be reprinted. It is on the wrong side. The book can stay black though.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Has some advantages but it is not perfect, Jan. 31 2012
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
I just recently bought this and I made an imperfect pot of coffee because I chopped up the coffee beans too fine. Now another problem is that this thermal pot does not keep the coffee warm for 2 hrs, in fact it does not even keep it warm for 1 hr. You have about 25 minutes, and what makes sense is simply giving your current up another top up after it is 2/3 of the way down, that is about it. Now the advantages of this French Press style coffee pot is that you can use very hot water, even boiling and if you learn to get the coffee beans chopped the correct way, and sure this is going to produce more flavor which only makes sense when brewing high end coffee like Starbucks. I have used a regular drip coffee maker, a Tim Hortons coffee maker and those make very good quality coffee. You can put the finished coffee into a thermos right away and than it really is good for 2 hrs. In the end I will still use the French Press if I want to really savor the taste, considering that I am able to chop up the coffee beans properly or else it will have residue at the bottom of the glass that you are working on, whereas the drip makers never leave any residue.
