5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and original romance!, 21 Jan 2013
This review is from: Fractured (Kindle Edition)
I've been looking for a new contemporary romance to read (after ploughing through a lot of pretty sub-par erotica) and came across this novel. I am SO GLAD I FOUND IT.

This is a fantastic debut set in England, telling the story of Rachel, whose life is torn apart after a tragic accident. Five years later, she ends up returning to Great Bishopsford, where she used to live, but a fall lands her in hospital. Waking up she learns her life seems to have fractured - and everything that she thought had happened since the accident never took place. Instead she's in a world where everything is completely different . . . including her fiancé.

This book has everything - genuine, likeable characters and fantastic dialogue (with some definite laugh-out-loud moments), as well as a heartbreaking love triangle at the centre. I can't recommend this enough - but beware of reading the ending in public. I did NOT see it coming and it blew me away!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, 16 Aug 2004
This film is superb, okay the plot could have been written by a five year old, but the acting, singing, dancing and directing make up for it more than enough. Both the lead actors have surprisingly good voices, Ewan McGreggor's rendition of Come What may, the only song written especially for the film, blew me away.
The score is cleverly made up of hit music from the charts but rewritten for the film. This works wonderfully and the Elephant Love Medly is especially good.
The choreography is fantastic and really makes you want to get up and dance, I held my breath all the way through El Tango de Roxanne.
Baz Lurhman must be commended for this wonderful feast of entertainment. It is the third in the installment of his Red Curtain Triology and he really delivers. The film lives up to all expectations and more.
