5.0 out of 5 stars Great underrated comedy!, 12 Oct 2010
This is better than Alan Partridge, which is saying a lot.

I think you can see quite a bit of Steve Coogan (whom I sense to be fairly anti-establishment) in the idealism of the main character, Tommy Saxondale. Tommy's a complex guy trying hard to retain some macho ruggedness - but also thoughtfulness - in a world he sees as increasingly sterile and conformist. The result is very funny, but it also challenges you to think. This is a rare and very pleasurable combination.

Steve Coogan really extends himself in this role, and shows off his brilliance as a comic actor. You get a strong sense that he particularly enjoyed playing Tommy, perhaps as it seems close to his own heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reading stand!, 12 Oct 2010
This reading stand is best for substantial books. It can support books of 1000 pages plus with no problems at all. I can fit a heavy 1350-page coursebook on it comfortably. For small books it's a case of overkill. (But why buy a reading stand for flimsy little paperbacks anyway?) It's also very attractive and solid. It has three possible viewing positions, with good variation of angle. It's extremely useful when you're using it alongside a computer screen, as you can set up your book at a similar angle to the screen. Excellent product - highly recommended!
