5.0 out of 5 stars A unique book of monster proportions, 24 Nov 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What can be said about this fascinating book?

It comes in a slipcover, it has lush images throughout, and it's a good read?

Well let me tell you, I was expecting a `run of the mill' `making of' book, but what I received was a marvellous, originally produced document, an insight into the preproduction process of modern filmmaking.

The pages are filled with detailed images of the whole process of the creation of the film, it demonstrates how all the elements were conceived and put together.

However, the most fantastic thing aside from the main body of the insightful material was the unique build up of the book itself!
In `regular' books there are pages with text and images on them, well this book also contains `post it' notes glues on to the page (yes actual post-it notes), `bubble gum' cards glued on to the pages (each packet holds a selection of removable cards to collect too)...this book actually resembles an assignment journal by the movie producers, it's as if the publishers had been given the raw material and they just printed it as it is for your enjoyment.
I have never seen such an inavative book, filled with such wonders.
This book takes pride of place amongst my ever-increasing book on the subjects of filmmaking.

1.0 out of 5 stars wast of time, 27 Aug 2007
This review is from: Creep [DVD] (DVD)
The film began with a good opening with a promise of an intriguing plot but, unfortunately like most modern horror films, the film was severally let down by Clichéd events, "I will stand with my back to this broken window, whilst we are been hunted", two dimensional character "I am a girl I can not hurt an unarmed murderer" , and awful script "I will shout and scream, even though the bad guy is searching for me' and uninspired finale `how to kill the bad guy and not get my hands dirty in the process'.
I wonder why the British film industry allows this sort of work to be financed and produced. The writer/ director gets a C for effort!

5.0 out of 5 stars great study book, 24 May 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a mature student returning to education. A tutor suggested that I borrow this book from the library to help me with my low grades.
I am eternally grateful to her because this book has helped and guided me on everything,
From 'how to write for university' through to what to expect at university and advice on how to study.
Everything is clearly laid out and explained.
This book should be given to all students wishing for a little extra help.

3.0 out of 5 stars living with chickens, 23 May 2004
i bought this book when i was first interested in getting a couple of hens.
the book is informantive & each chapter starts with a little short story,which is 'nice'. but i felt the book needed more facts & details on the actual care of the birds and a far wider view on their housing & feeding.the list of breeds really should have been paired up with actual photoes of the birds so you could use the book for future reference.
please note the book was written in america for americans making the list of suppliers and internet sites redundant!.
