An excellent novel. To see that +Rowan Williams read it twice says it all. It is a compelling story with real heft and power, told with style and grace. Highly commended. NMC

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Having seen 'Closer to the Edge' I came to this ..., 20 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having seen 'Closer to the Edge' I came to this book with some doubt about whether it could live up to the filming - but it does, in spades. Guy Martin is an extraordinary bloke, and the book is written well and with compulsion. Unputdownable. NMC

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the best made and unflinchingly directed films of motorbike racing I have ever seen, with superb editing and a fine balance of fact and character, properly bringing Guy Martin to the fore as the exemplar of the whole Isle of Man TT ethic. Brilliant. NMC

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant TV adaptation of the excellent Hilary Mantel novels, 20 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wolf Hall [DVD] [2015] (DVD)
Brilliant TV adaptation of the excellent Hilary Mantel novels, with Mark Rylance outstanding as Thomas Cromwell. Like all history, it may not have been quite like that ; but the drama is rivetting and the direction and filming superb, right down to the candle-light. NMC

A fine film about the struggle for independence in North America, and the relationship between the native Americans, the British and French colonisers and the settlers. Fine stuff from Daniel Day-Lewis, and others. NMC

Dvd ~ Kevin Costner
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great films about the West and the Indian/native American civilisation, 20 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the great films about the West and the Indian/native American civilisation, even if it's a bit wrapped up in Kevin Costner. How did the white man get away with such genocide and then come up smiling in the 20th century to lecture the rest of the world? What was lost from the world as the Indians were driven into reservations? NMC

Telling the Truth: The Gospel as Tragedy, Comedy, and Fairy Tale
by Frederick Buechner
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £18.00

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a fantastic, enlightening, 20 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fantastic, enlightening, original book, like all of Buechner. He sometimes ties himself up in syntax and poetic phrasing, but the truth is there all through. Hugely recommended for anyone who wants to go deeper. NMC

by Alexander Frater
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond the Blue Horizon - Frater, 7 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the great books of travel writing, a round-the-world tour in highways and bye-ways in large aircraft and small, with the fine history of early aviation thrown in. A must for anyone who likes aeroplanes. NMC
