4.0 out of 5 stars Book two of the Olive trilogy, 28 Oct. 2010
I enjoyed this book The Olive Season, part 2 of the trilogy. It is the sort of book which reads well whilst sitting on a beach in a warm country. Very light hearted, rather prosey in the way it is written, a good holiday read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cake Eaters DVD, 28 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This sensitive film, Cake Eaters, the directorial debut of Mary Stuart Masterson, is a gently told story of disability and how it affects families and individuals. A young teenage girl with a degenrative disease, wants to experience all life has to offer and has the normal feelings and emotions of any teenage girl. This is the story of how she takes control of her awakening sexuality, and makes a stand for her own independence, and the effect it has on those around her.

There are many fine performances in this well crafted film but that of Kristin Stewart stands out, and she is truly remarkable. I cannot recommend this film highly enough, funny, sad, quite often disturbing and sometimes very hard to watch, yet it fills ones heart with hope and a real belief in how indomitable human spirit can be.

Excellent production of this classic story. Richard Armitage gives a glowering performance. BBC at its historical best. Thoroughly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new Swedish Detective from Henning Mankell, 19 Jun. 2010
If you like Wallander then you will like this book. Very, very good. I just love how Mankell writes such deep, dark stories. Set in the endless, grim forests of Nothern Sweden, the mood is set for this dark tale. I did not want to stop reading it and hated it when I had finished the book, only thing to do is read another Mankell book. Thoroughly recommend you to read this.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Got The Love by Candi Staton, 19 Jun. 2010
This is such a good recording. The original is definitely best in this case. Florence and The Machine just don't get near to this seminal recording. What a powerhouse of a voice Candi Staton has. If you like this song, and have only heard Flo and The Mac please, please listen to this, it cannot be beaten in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wallander Series, 28 April 2010
Another gem from Mankell in the Wallander series. No 2 on the list. Very grey, dark and ominous. A sense of suppression and confinement runs all the way through the book. Wallander seems out of his depth several times, only to resurface and remain the flawed hero as always. A must read for crime officianados.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wallander Cliffhanger, 28 April 2010
Excellent read. This is the 3rd in the Wallander series. I think it is probably one of his best if not the best read. Kept me enthralled to the very last page. Cannot recommend highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lippy Heaven, 28 April 2010
Excellent service. Quick delivery, on time, perfect condition and very reasonable compared to high street prices, also bigger selection of more unusual shades. Fully recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Before the Frost, 12 Mar. 2010
An excellent read featuring Inspector Wallander's daughter Linda. A real page turner, I couldn't wait to finish it to find out who done it but at the same time I didn't want the book to end as what would I read next? A great read.
