5.0 out of 5 stars Heaven or Hell? Depends on youir point of view., 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great acting from thr three male leads sets this series apart. The premise is interesting and I loved the unpredictability of the storylines and the grittiness of the subject treatment. The hero is a delight. good looking enough to make female hearts flutter and macho enough to keep the men engaged. Lots of violence and themes of slavery and the mistreatment of the Native American population add interest and depth to the subject and the narrative. As always there are irritants such as the slightly daffy female lead and the preacher character but they are minor flaws in an otherwise strong raft of characters. We loved it and will be buying the next series - can't say better than that.

I don't think its the case's fault it is exactly what I sent for and fits the description, but it is very sparkly and rather glitzy. I will use it when I go out, and it will provoke comment. It was well packaged and is a good price.

The case is lightweight and attractive and was easy to fit on the phone. It is easy to wipe clean and looks great. There was also a screen shield and a cloth which is grear as I tend to trash everything.

Lovely case, have not taken it off my phone since I got it. Wipes clean and came with extras, like a cloth and screen shield.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Play, 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rope (Paperback)
Although set in 1929, there is something timeless about Rope. It is a dark and mesemirising tale of two young undergraduates who murder a third and place in his body in a large chest. The play opens just as they finish placing his body in the box. We as an audience are instantly aware of the murder they have just perpetrated. The interest in the play lies in their apparent self justification for what they have done. They proceed to give a dinner party and serve the meal on the chest containing the corpse, The guests include the dead boy's fathetr and almost mute aunt. Their former house tutor who has been wounded in the war becomes suspiscious as the evening goes on.
This is a play full of tension, the dynamic between the the three male leads is electric and the the writing is excellent. The dark side of privilege and the class structure that underpinned the society of 1929 and indeed could be said to still do so now, is inherently realised. The character of Rupert Cadell is a well drawn and he must be joy for an actor to play. The aftermath of the Great War and its effect on the society of the roaring twenties is pervasve.
Hitchcock made a film of this play transferring it to New York and altering many characters, perhaps that was needed in a cinematic format, but as a play this is superb.
