House Of Cards - Season 1 (DVD + UV Copy)
House Of Cards - Season 1 (DVD + UV Copy)
Dvd ~ Kevin Spacey
Price: £12.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Is Frank the new Francis?, 5 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved the original House of Cards so was a bit reticent about seeing this, but with Kevin Spacey in the lead role it had to be worth a try. This is absolutely not a remake of the original, it's a new story in a different country which certainly plays homage to the original but with a totally different take. And Frank Underwood is a worthy successor to Francis Urquart. He couldn't possibly comment though........

5.0 out of 5 stars Page Turner, 30 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with all of Elly Griffith's books this is a page turner that ends up keeping you up half the night because you can't put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Cork Based thriller, 30 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was drawn to this book because it was set in Cork (an area I know very well) = so glad I was, this is a real page turner although not for the squeamish - the descriptions of the torture are quite graphic but never gratuitous.

The Lost Child of Philomena Lee: A Mother, Her Son and a Fifty Year Search
Price: £4.40

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but harrowing, 30 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Read this after I had seen the film Philomena. Although the film is based loosely on the book the book itself concentrates far more on the life of Philomena's son. Fascinating social history which illustrates the terrible homophobia suffered by the lost child. Well worth a read but understand that the film and the book are very different indeed although both are excellent in different ways.

Good story but I just didn't think it was as good as previous instalments. Look forward to the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep, dreamless sleep......., 5 Nov. 2011
I first used this CD when I came out of hospital after four months. Having been very ill and not really having slept properly for the whole time I was in (being very ill, noisy wards etc)I found it impossible to sleep when I got home. After months of imagining a good nights sleep in my own bed I found that it completely eluded me. I have to admit I was sceptical about whether this method would work but after a month I was willing to try anything! From the first night I tried Simply Sleep I have had deep, dreamless sleep whenever I use it. Not only did Alan sort out the initial acute problem but I've returned to the CD again and again and it always works. It even worked when I ended up back in hospital for a fortnight, if Simply Sleep can manage to make me sleep on a busy surgical ward it can manage it anywhere. Thoroughly recommended!Simply Sleep - Embrace Sleep, Leave Insomnia Behind

5.0 out of 5 stars The book that changed my life, 8 Feb. 2007
I first read this book when I was about 15 and it had such a remarkable effect on my life that 25 years later I still return to it again and again. It encapsulates so much of the period; the desperate need to get into higher education, the horror of war and its aftermath, how to make sense of it all and finally the joy of love and of friendship. Try Chronicles of Youth as well, the diaries on which she based the book.
