3.0 out of 5 stars Almost, 13 Jun. 2007
This is almost a good movie. It has all the ingredients, but there are one or two serious flaws that make it less than "swept away". The first is that Kevin Costner is really quite dreary, as if he was phoning in his part. It is also implausible that he would not wear his lifejacket at the end (picky, picky). The second flaw is that the love story loses some of its energy towards the end, for reasons that are not clear. The first wife should have had a bit more of a role, given that she drags her lover down into the ocean for the temerity to pick up with another woman (cf. Rebecca).

The best thing in the film is Robin Wright Penn, who is as beautiful as a shower of gold. It is completely implausible that her first husband, or any man in his right mind, would have left her.

5.0 out of 5 stars extraordinary book, 13 Jun. 2007
This is one of the greatest books ever written on music and music theory for people who know nothing about music. I cut out the original set of articles that spawned this book, and was thrilled to discover that he had turned it into a big book (and it is big!). The best thing about the book, if you have been saturated in Beatles music, is that the theory is learnt really quite effortlessly. The author has done everything he possibly could to make it easy for you. This book should be given to everyone free upon reaching the age of 15 or thereabouts.
