3.0 out of 5 stars Nice bit of Victorian-gothic mayhem..., 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Quick (Kindle Edition)
Pretty well written although a bit unfocused as it alternates a number of different character stories. This is a bit of a spoiler but... but you need to know it is about orphaned children, decadent young men and gentlemen vampires in London. Sorry if this sounds like damning with faint praise. It is enjoyable, but not great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Guilty pleasure, 25 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great reading about this film which has always been a guilty pleasure. Actually this is one of the best photographed films ever made, so not so guilty! Amazing to read about the time and expense that went into it, but also good to know how much it helped build up the local community where it was filmed. Fab pictures too - worth buying the hard copy rather than the kindle version.

I loved the film and remembered the lovely flute solo from the opening titles. The rest of it is just as good!

4.0 out of 5 stars Swept away, 25 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beautiful. I don't have any great knowledge of classical music, so can't say if this is a great interpretation, and bought this mainly because it was the theme to Brief Encounter. But it swept me away!

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved the film. Loving this book!, 26 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really didn't expect to like this as much as I did as Vampire Circus is one of my favourite Hammer films and really couldn't be equalled or improved in print. But this is a very nicely updated version which isn't slavish about following the original screenplay; although it does keep the essential structure and set-pieces that make the storyline special. I read and enjoyed Mark Morris's first novel, 'Toady', over twenty years ago, and on the evidence of this book alone I look forward to reading more of his work.

4.0 out of 5 stars G, 10 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wet (Audio CD)
Loved the 12" version of Enough is Enough, and the beautiful ballad 'After the Rain'. Plus you get 'Kiss me in the Rain' and 'Wet' which many will know from the Love Songs album. Not essential, but if you're a fan then simply a must-have.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you liked the first two, just get it!, 10 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only slightly disappointed that this only briefly referred to some of the wonderful characters from earlier books, but its still pretty good and incredibly readable. Beautiful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Readable and a bit mad!, 10 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It reads like a of scrap-book of thoughts and memories from a fascinating career, including some pretty eccentric philosophising. But for anyone who loves the films - absolutely essential!

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat, 15 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Neat summary provides good background for further reading. I've seen and read so many versions of the period that, for me, it's good to get some objective facts and proper historical context.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loving the Alien, 15 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you love the Alien films, you have to see it. Beautifully visualised as you would expect from Ridley Scott. Well worth repeat viewings A+++
