5.0 out of 5 stars Still a classic, 3 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of those films which you can watch again and again and never get tired of.
Terribly weak story line, but the music , dance and sheer exuberance of the cast make up for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars why haven't I read this book before ?, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read most of Michael Connelly's books and never been disappointed.
So too with this one which must be a fairly early Harry Bosch thriller
Pacey, great characterisation and locations, clever plotting and many red herrings
A good read, highly recommended

2.0 out of 5 stars got bored, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shame (Kindle Edition)
I'm afraid I got bored with this book about halfway through and then finishing it became a challenge rather than a pleasure
I think my problem was that I found too many anomalies in the plot which stretched credibility and coincidence to breaking point
Finishing became a matter of honour and a chore, rather than a pleasure

4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just completed first level and found it completely captivating. Frustrating, annoying, but utterly captivating too.
Can't wait to start next level and will probably buy Room 2 to be playing in parallel

Got some funny looks as I laughed uncontrollably at Bridget's adventures, especially with the Botox story line. Hilarious. Well done Helen Fielding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive, 26 Jan 2014

This review is from: Candy Crush Saga (App)
BEWARE. This game is highly addictive and can ruin your family and social life!!! It certainly has mine and that's with me, my wife, and daughter all playing simultaneously, but not competitively.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly amazing book, 14 Jan 2014
A truly amazing book and I hope the next two in the trilogy are as good.
I have never really studied World War I, in which my own grandfather fought and was wounded. I found this book as informative about the history and the relationships between the great powers as any reference book and the great characterisation of the main protagonists kept it very readable, with the pace just zipping along.
I now want to watch Dr Zhivago again to get the relationships between the Reds, the Whites and the Bolsheviks clearer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice gentle read, 3 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Christmas Train (Kindle Edition)
This was a really relaxing read. The concept is great, the detail is adequate without ever being overpowering and the characterisation is superb.
I wanted a contrast to my normal crime/action thrillers - you know, the Lee Child .... Michael Connolly ....... Robert Crais, all of whom I enjoy.. I found this book exactly what I wanted and would recommend it to anyone who reads to relax going to sleep.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sloppy ending, 29 Dec 2013
I really enjoyed this book until the fourth timely rescue by the rejected lover and the point where the ending became all too obvious.
Too many unanswered questions and threads left hanging.
