A brilliant realization of Connelly's writing. Conventional but never dull.

The Red Road is a fascinating, yet slightly sluggish watch with engaging subject matter and cast alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love, Death and Balzac, 15 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Infatuations (Paperback)
Javier Marías is a profoundly unique writer. Despite this he is frequently and deliberately derivative. His literature is a synthesis of Literature as a whole. The Infatuations is a remarkable novel because of the ambiguities it exposes and the understanding it demands from the reader. Reviewers who dismiss the 'unlikeable' characters dismiss the eternal January that is human nature. Two faces, two million motives. Well worth reading and smouldering over, cocktail in hand.

A brilliant pair of trousers from my favourite label. Can be worn with anything from t-shirts to collared shirts and ties. Everyone should have a pair tucked away.


Crusader Archaeology: The Material Culture of the Latin East
Crusader Archaeology: The Material Culture of the Latin East
by Adrian J. Boas
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £85.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Overview, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The archaeology of the crusades is a surprisingly under-researched topic, largely owing to the political and cultural difficulties in assessing much of the material outside Israel. This text (now 15 years old) is a rather authoritative overview of the topic.

If one is studying Levantine castles, however, as I was - there isn't a great deal of material here one couldn't find elsewhere.

A fully updated edition would be a useful undertaking for the author.


The Fall (Penguin Modern Classics)
The Fall (Penguin Modern Classics)
by Albert Camus
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.29

3.0 out of 5 stars A review of the book not the novel, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The novel is excellent. Leaving that to one side - (who are we to review novels of this nature ?) I will briefly discuss the edition.

Firstly, the book itself is incredibly flimsy. The novel is short (just shy of 100pp) but that is not an excuse for an edition that looks like it came free with a Sunday newspaper. Penguin's dull editions have become a matter of serious irritation for me. Just because something is cheap doesn't mean it has to be ugly.


A History of Archaeological Thought
A History of Archaeological Thought
by Bruce G. Trigger
Edition: Paperback
Price: £28.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Volume, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For any Archaeology student, academic or lay interest reader this is the essential volume required to cut through the matrix of Theory. Trigger excelled at summarising difficult concepts in short paragraphs before exploring their major themes. Wonderful.

4.0 out of 5 stars A cerebral thrill-ride, 3 April 2014
Disorienting. Confusing. Heartbreaking. A film not to be missed, this brainy indie thriller leave you with an unsettling chill for several days.
