2.0 out of 5 stars Another film about Baz, 11 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fitzgerald was trying to show the seedy side of America in the 20s; Luhrman was showing the wonder of it. The music? 20s - no.
Gatsby the musical - yes. Compared to the 70s' version, it was weak, especially in the characterisation of Nick Carraway. Luckily I know the book well enough to see it in my mind so Baz's version provided nothing more than a structure to remember the original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything good, 30 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I liked the quality of the colour printing, the layout of the book and the various pieces written by sitters and others giving differing points of view but most of all I like the paintings.

I first saw this film in the cinema and wanted a copy and could keep and see again. I also bought a second copy as a gift for a friend's son who is himself a performance artist in The Nehterlands. Amazing artist.

This review is from: In the Blue House (Paperback)
I bought this book for a friend who had been in Mexico over the holiday period and had visited the Blue House. I had read it several years ago and thought she might like a reminder of Mexico and the real life characters who inhabit the book.

I bought this book having read Victoria's column in the Observer for years and having red her gambling book. What can I say! I think perhaps I am a bit naive!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, 22 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not only did I buy and read this wonderful book for myself but I bought a copy for a cousin in Canada who is a retired Maths teacher. He phoned yesterday and we had a 40 minute conversation about it. No doubt we will continue to explore this book's amazing concepts by email. An intriguing and wonderful book.
