5.0 out of 5 stars A whirlwind ride, 15 May 2015
This review is from: Time Waits (Kindle Edition)
There's time travel and romance and intrigue, but what C.B. Lewis excells at is getting in the characters' heads and breaking them apart with both overwhelming emotions and moral dilemmas. The rich fabric of this story will seize you and not let go until the last page.

4.0 out of 5 stars My third pair in 6 years, 22 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just watch yourselves when there's water around - it makes the cork sole eventually peel and crumble. But the foot comfort in the meantime is worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plain gorgeous, 22 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The landscape pictures are great - and the comments behind them enlightening - but my favourite part was costume/makeup/hair/prosthetic evolution sketches, presenting each character from the first ideas to the actor in the finished costume or CGI design. Lots of tantalising glimpses of things we'll presumably see in the next movies or the extended edition, as well - I'm particularly looking forward to Belladonna Took!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for anyone interested in the background of the movie, 22 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is full of anecdotes and background of the movie creation process, as well as gorgeous photographs. I enjoyed very much reading and seeing how various pieces were arrived at - for example the input the actors had into their characters, or the sheer scale of the collaborative work involved between everyone from Peter Jackson on down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for anyone whose feet hurt, 24 Aug. 2011
I'm on my second pair - the first started slightly crumbling after three years of heavy use and being left in water overnight. Fantastic support and comfort, with more stability that the single-strap model.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tale respun into perfection, 23 April 2009
This review is from: Hand Of Isis (Paperback)
The tale of Cleopatra has been retold countless times, but Jo Graham's take is both fresh and true to form - behind this fast-paced tale told by Cleopatra's handmaiden lies historical research and loving attention to detail that brings one of the most powerful women of antiquity to life in the form she might have worn. What touched me most in the book was how real she makes everyone, throwing the reader head-first into the life and concepts of Ptolemaic Alexandria. The world is presented entire, and Charmian is our guide to it even as she lives her own life. And with this all, it's also a gripping read - politics, romance, family, and tragedy at the end.

Jo shared some excerpts of her upcoming work on her blog, and I can't wait to get the next book into my hands!
