4.0 out of 5 stars with hooks in the opening scenes which get the reader into the great adventure which follows, 15 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I lived in Wicklow for a brief period several years ago, and so was intrigued to see a sci-fi fantasy set in the area. Admittedly, this genre is not something I usually read, but I was captivated by the blurb and pre-purchase sample. The plot is lively and engaging, with hooks in the opening scenes which get the reader into the great adventure which follows. The next installment should only add to the excitement and intrigue. Well worth a read!

1.0 out of 5 stars So much wasted potential, 18 Dec. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Les Miserables [2000] [DVD] (DVD)
With a cast like this and one of the great literary masterpieces for source material, I was expecting more from this version of Les Miserables.
The whole thing was badly edited, giving the impression the filmakers were in a hurry to get through the story while sacrificing the quality. With such great actors it is a pity that the plot was destroyed, to the extent that many scenes and confrontations seemed to be contrived and ridiculous simply because not enough time was spent to develop them. This would and should have been at least a six hour mini-series like the Count of Monte Cristo (Also starring Depardieu) which is magnificent.
