I've not finished reading this yet. But so far it's an amazingly insightful read. It's easy, especially for us later generations to think of the second world war in terms of giant battles, trenches and air raid shelters. The small and personal details of reality during the war in this book really bring home the true gravitas of what the war was like for those who experienced it, especially focusing, as it does, on the the last, burnt out moments of European existence under nazi rule and the new upheaval of allied occupation.

2.0 out of 5 stars a good boring film., 3 Mar. 2015

This review is from: Boyhood (Amazon Instant Video)
This is not a bad film. Its conceptually interesting and the acting is faultless but there is no real story and the lead character is incredibly irritating. At the end if the film it felt pointless.

4.0 out of 5 stars if you like tracy you'll love this., 25 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Tinsel and Lights (Audio CD)
Tracy Thorn has a very distinctive voice both in the way she sounds and the tone of her music.This is a beautifully crafted album that possitively wreaks of authenticity. The use of the brass band is beautiful, haunting and gives the real atmosphere of a real christmas. One for the more thoughtful and reflective festive fanatic.

3.0 out of 5 stars IT'S ONLY A NOVEL (hello mum!), 15 Dec. 2004
I borrowed this book from a friend, curious enough to read it but not spend the money on something so dramatically flawed as the independant reviewers here would have you believe.
I read the book in two days and found it highly interesting. A real page turner in that I wanted to find out what the mysteries were and the meanings of the codes.
Essentially I agree with many other reviewers in saying that each and every character was hopelessly flawed and the ending left a nasty hollywood taste in the mouth. But then this is a work of fiction, based on suppositions of and interpretations of fact so to be fair if you expected a diffinitive closure on the legend of the grail why the hell are you reading A NOVEL!
I had the feeling much the way through the book that Brown was quite rightly intrigued by the knowledge he gleaned from his research and decided to build a novel around it. Let's face it if he had actual 'characters' the book would be an aweful lot thicker.
I've just read the blurb for his other novel 'Angels and Demons' and am sad to say that this looks like an Indiana Jones thing. Ie: it's the same book with a different secret society.
It was a fun and torrid affair that kept me up late but shouldn't be taken so seriously as to engender all this fuss. After all we live in a society where people are not persecuted for their beliefs and it is excepted that many people have different interpretations of God outside of religious stricture. As Brown hit on the head, if the Grail myth were true and proved beyond doubt, would it make a difference? faith is all about belief and so many times facts just don't come in to it. There are many people who believe that God created man and animals and will still today with all the proof of natural history maintain that dinosours never existed and man was never an ape, so what does one racy quest novel matter to faith and the church.
Yadda yadda it's dicussing the keysone of christian faith..... fact remains some people need to get out more... including Dan Brown who needs to attend some classes on plot building and characterisation.
I'm off to read Echo.
