5.0 out of 5 stars Je suis Lost in Translation, 29 Jan. 2015
Je suis Lost in Translation, contrary to the most recent reviews. I worked once for a Tokyo-based company, and the film captures the quirkiness and strangeness of that city. The main characters' platonic relationship is funny and touching, and another star of the film is the hotel. Escapism worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice one!, 18 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lost In The Dream (Audio CD)
I like, amongst other things, the music of Arcade Fire, Bob Dylan, Bright Eyes and Bruce Springsteen, so I'm in heaven with this one. Glad I ordered it based, in part, upon Amazon rating it the Number 1 album of 2014.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fits a treat., 11 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delighted with this purchase - a smart product, representing excellent value, promptly delivered. I bought it to house my HP Chromebook 11, which it does comfortably.

Later addendum to the above review - rating reduced from five stars to four stars, as the red lining in the slipcase has since stained a strip of the white casing of my HP Chromebook 11, a light red colour. On the plus side, my Chromebook in its Tech Air slipcase recently fell out of my messenger bag and was protected by the slipcase, suffering no damage.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the real thing but still good, 30 July 2013
Whilst sympathising with those who feel 'misled', the selection of songs is a fine one, giving a true taste of America.


A Short History of England
A Short History of England
by Simon Jenkins
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.49

5.0 out of 5 stars A 500-piece jigsaw puzzle, 7 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not enough time to do, or incapable of doing, a 1,000+-piece jigsaw puzzle? Then, this is the book for you. Told as a story and therefore highly readable, this book contains all the pieces. Full of fascinating facts, and not a word wasted. Can we have Short Histories of Scotland, Wales and Ireland, next please.

5.0 out of 5 stars Springsteen's Finest, 29 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Magic (Audio CD)
I'm sorry, but listening to this CD once again, I have to say that I consider it to be Bruce's finest. Why? Because, it's sunny and makes me smile.


The Road
The Road
by Cormac McCarthy
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Bleak but beautiful, 14 Mar. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Road (Paperback)
Wonderful, spare writing from the author of "No Country for Old Men". About a father and son on the road in a post-apocalyptic world. As powerful a warning for the globally warmed generation, as Nevil Shute's "On the beach" and George Orwell's "1984" were for their generations. A tender, human book - moving and sad, bleak but beautiful. Deserved winner of the Pulitzer Prize.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!, 13 May 2007
This review is from: Solid Gold (Audio CD)
A few nights ago I went to see T-Rextasy at the Broadway in Peterborough with my mum, dad and a friend. They are amazing and it was quite a special event too as it has been 30 years since Marc Bolan passed away(very sad):(. They played all the greatest hits including loads that I know!: 20th Century Boy, Deborah, I love to boogie, Ride a white swan and many others

Hope this review was helpful! and Rock On!

2.0 out of 5 stars Fundamentally flawed, 25 Sept. 2006
This review is from: The God Delusion (Hardcover)
A flawed fundamentaist tract in which Prof Dawkins fails once again to prove the non-existence of God.
