3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 23 Nov. 2014

This book is exactly what it claims to be - an easy read with gossipy (but not cruel) tales from Hollywood.
An undemanding read which I enjoyed.

I was very pleased with both the quality and the price of this little badge, but I was REALLY IMPRESSED with the speed of delivery. I think I placed the order at 5 pm on a Monday and it arrived first post Tuesday !

2.0 out of 5 stars Long and unrewarding, 2 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed the first book and came with high hopes to the sequel. Sadly, it was not a patch on the first for originality (fair enough) or plot or adventure. I will buy the third book, but only if it is the last one in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars IDEAL !, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think this may be the only guidebook that deals exclusively with the principality on its own rather than as an "add-on" to Belgium.
Well written, with wit, but sensibly straightforward. I am looking forward to using it in situ in two months time.

5.0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC !, 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Essential Cole Porter (Audio CD)
Quirky collection, but any rendition of Cole Porter is a winner for me -
even the dubious vocal talent of Porter himself. Great album !

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film, great price !, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Serenity [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
Very welcome movie for anyone who watched, enjoyed and was frustrated at the discontinuation of the Firefly series.
Nathan Fillion really is very good : easy to watch and an appealing sense of humour.

PARADE'S END: THE COMPLETE TRILOGY (Annotated and With Active Table of Contents)
Price: £0.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Not easy, 8 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having been bowled over by the wonderful BBC (and Tom Stoppard) adaptation of Ford Maddox Ford's trilogy, I thought I'd try the original.
It really was quite hard going and, had not the tv characters' faces been fresh in my mind, I would have found it almost impossible to follow what the opening chapters were all about. Even so, I have to admit that I "gave up" after about 90 pages.
I feel the need to add that I'm not a total illiterate, and have easily enjoyed Dickens and Jane Austen over the past few months, so maybe this says something about why "Parade's End" became a FORGOTTEN masterpiece. Maybe I'll try again next year ........
