Frog Music
Frog Music

Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

3.0 out of 5 stars Whilst initially impressed with the quality of the writing and the historical research rather than being pulled into the plot wi, 23 April 2015
This review is from: Frog Music (Paperback)
I have not previously read any Emma Donoghue and I was probably attracted to this book for the wrong reason...the musical references. Whilst initially impressed with the quality of the writing and the historical research rather than being pulled into the plot with just over 100 pages to go I have begun to find it a bit tedious. There is a lack of literary dynamic..it just plods along with a story that would have benefitted from being shorter.

2.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed the first book but found this one tedious, 2 April 2015
I enjoyed the first book but found this one tedious..instead of my nightly reading increasing as I worked my way through the book it decreased with boredom. What started out as an interesting and humorous characterisation of a syndrome ends up predictable, a matter made worse by a plodding plot.

It takes a very good writer indeed to sustain and develop such one dimensional characters as Don and Rosie, and Simsion simply isn't that good.

This review is from: Tapestry (Audio CD)
Just one of my favourite albums of all time...recently saw the stage show 'Beautiful' and although it was like sitting in God's waiting room given the average age of the audience to see and hear so many people still derive enjoyment is a tribute to the quality and production of the original material.

The lady is just an unbeatable player and interpreter of the best acoustic delta and country blues players. Why do it? She's keeping the real blues alive and deserve every credit for it.

3.0 out of 5 stars good late night CD, 1 Mar. 2015
This review is from: Shadows In The Night (Audio CD)
Pleasantly surprised..good late night CD. Great choice of songs, excellent arrangements with judicious use of brass and strings...but the voice is shot through.

Dylan is as Dylan does..a law unto himself. This one would be tad too indulgent were it not for the quality of the originals which still shines through.the throaty warbling.

John Miller can do no wrong,,the unsung hero of tabbing, explaining and carrying the torch for the blues masters. Makes Furry accessible to even average guitarists.
