5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, 6 April 2011
This review is from: The Fall [DVD] (DVD)
Fabulous, a film you can watch over and over again, seeing new things each time.

The little actress, Catinca, is just so watchable and so very believable, that it pulls on your heartstrings, especially when viewing the 'making of' short film and the commentary and discovering the special relationship she had with Lee Pace, a stunning secret revealed in these features.

Don't hesistate, just buy it, you won't regret it. It's sure to stay with you a long time and with two commentaries and two behind the scenes features you will be entertained for hours and hours.

1.0 out of 5 stars Childlike, 2 April 2011
Anything that starts off with "Billions of years ago in a faraway galaxy there was a planet called Zula" and continues "in the year of 2100 it had finally come to a head" is probarbly only suitable for 7 year olds.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very basic...., 8 Mar 2010
First of all the book is not bound very well and in seconds pages were falling out. A very basic book... for example a very short sentence mentions suppliers pages before the process of setting up a business is addressed, then suppliers are not mentioned again!

Seems more concerned with setting up a home office; furniture, decor, what books and films to see... Jerry Maguire?!

Laughable... save your money and visit the Business Link website run by the government.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, 24 Oct 2009
This review is from: The Dark Volume (Hardcover)
A worthy follow up to the previous two books in the series.

The introduction of some new/old characters was believable and well executed, bringing to the fore previously hinted at relationships, but to say more would give the plot away (be careful reading other reviews!!)

Although lengthy and repetitive in places, Gordon Dahlquist sustains the growing menace and terror of a secret `cabal' consisting of men from the ministry, lords of industry, scientists and the mysterious Contessa and her high class prostitutes, over the three books, so far, in the series.

This book almost defies description and without giving too much away, I found the descriptions of the `process' used on the female characters truly terrifying!

With three well rounded protagonists and a huge cast of supporting characters, it's basically an adventure mystery with a big dose of weird science and a touch or eroticism; a good Steampunk genre read for the long dark winter nights to come.

Second book in the series, a worthy follow up.

Would make an amazing film and because the author is a playwright, maybe this is a possibility.

1.0 out of 5 stars Clumsy, 24 Oct 2009
This review is from: The Affinity Bridge (Paperback)
During the first few pages the author sends two of his characters out for a little after dinner stroll, however, within the same chapter we are later informed that zombies are terrorising the streets of the city, whilst Queen Victoria seems more concerned about a distant relative killed/missing from a crashed dirigible. Just an example of the many jarring mistakes and under executed plot concepts. It's beyond pastiche, it's bad writing.

Clumsy and amateurish.

If you want a truly sinister read then try The Glass Books of The Dream Eaters 1 & 2, although lengthy and repetitive in places the plot really does deliver a growing menacing terror and a huge cast of believable characters within the steampunk genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the cover!, 24 Jun 2009
I agree with a previous reviewer, whoever designs the covers for Virago needs an eye test! A recent release 'Nightingale Wood' by Stella Gibbons was set in the late thirties but displayed characters dressed in early twenties clothing on the cover, misleading, much like this book.
A classic, go read it, you'll love it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tatty after a few months, 20 Jun 2009
I purchased mine several months ago and it is now looking very tatty! I wish I had listened to a previous reviewer when they mentioned that the leather is very thin, because it really is. Mine got caught on the work service whilst wiping it down and my nail skimmed the leather. It now has a 3 cm gash and getting bigger, this may not have been so noticable if the body underneath was also green but it is white! It also has a few dings in it where people have picked it up to set programmes etc. Very poor value compared to my other wooden bodied DAB rdio.
