I love this scent it reminds me of a perfume I used to wear in the 1980s (unfortunately cannot remember the name of that - was it Geminesse??) Anyway, it makes a room smell divine.

These pans are very hardwearing. It is not possible to damage the enamel so unlike a 'non stick' coating, this will never, ever break down. Very pleased.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sponsor a Jolly, 13 Mar 2014
I purchased this book for my husband, to replace a decade old Michael Jackson title, which is obviously now quite out of date. I prefer the style of the Jackson book, descriptions more entertaining, enlightening and less ascerbic. This book is filled with whiskies that you cannot find in a shop and exotic variations on same. For example, I purchased a standard 14 year old Clynelish and it is not listed - only exotic variations and editions are listed. Not very helpful.

I cannot believe that Murray finds so many flavours in a single dram - my hunch is that he doesn't, but likes to bluster on for it's own sake. After all, if one claims to be an expert, one has to appear to know/detect more than a mere mortal would. I also cannot believe that people buy this book every year - the whisky world cannot change that much in 12 months, and it must involve poring over Murray's every word to discover the changes anyway. Oh well, at least the royalties afforded by such fatuous loyalty allow the author to continue on his boozy circumnavigation of the whisky world.....

3.0 out of 5 stars Book Better, 16 Jan 2008
As is mostly the case, the book is better than the film. The film is fairly honest to the book (but does not go as far or replicate the time span involved in an authentic way). I found the character of Cathy a little irritating with her constant 'do this CHRISTOPHER....don't you think that CHRISTOPHER'. At least you are never in doubt as to her older brother's name throughout the film!!!
The smaller children, especially Cory, are annoying in the extreme. In the book one has great sympathy with them, but their saccharin portrayal in the film left me wanting to poison the cookies myself!
Mum was a little wooden but you were left hating her and her unnutterable selfishness - she was, in fact, more evil than Grandmother. As for Grandmother, a reasonably portrayal by a talented actress - she could have been allowed to develop the character more.

My advice? Read the book first and prepare to be left unsatisfied by the film.
