Love it love it love it. Toby Jones' accent, Mackenzie Crook's blue eyes, Sophie Thompson's dotty dancing, and the music... Divine. More please Mackenzie.

5.0 out of 5 stars a man of many talents, 18 May 2014

This review is from: Eleven (Paperback)
Another excellent novel from a writer I have always admired for his stand up. He tackles uncomfortable subjects and the endings are not easy. I loved the character of Pippa the Geordie cleaner.

This was recommended to me by an ex-teacher and I am very grateful to her. I didn't know before about the pilgrimage but this film shows us the beauty of the landscape, the joys and frustrations of travelling with strangers, and at its heart is a moving story of bereavement and atonement.


Cutting For Stone
Cutting For Stone

Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.29

5.0 out of 5 stars just superb, 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cutting For Stone (Paperback)
Loved this book, not just because I lived in Ethiopia once and it brought back such memories, but also for the beauty of the writing and the gripping story. Touches on many issues relevant today although it covers the practice of surgery and obs/gynae in a poorly-resourced hospital in the 50s and 60s. An unusual twin story and fantastic characters. One to read again.

Haven't read the book yet but the cover is torn, unfortunately across Matthew Macfadyen's lovely face! Otherwise no problem with delivery.

One of the best books I have ever read, up there with The Making of Henry and The Help.Hard to say why, and I don't know that many men would like it.

Excellent entertainment. Lots of laughs, some tears, great cast, lots of memorable moments. Watch to the end for Tim Spall at the piano for real. Delightful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant novel, 16 Mar. 2012
Katharine McMahon does not disappoint. This one was not a happy read, and was disturbing in parts, but again beautifully written and certainly memorable. I have liked all her novels.


Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?
Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?
by Jeanette Winterson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly warm and engaging, 16 Mar. 2012
I'd always thought of Jeanette Winterson as a clever writer and an original thinker, but I found some of her books difficult to relate to. In this book however, she seems really warm and likeable as well as strong and courageous. The book is funny and moves along at a great pace. I hated reading about her "exorcism" and later mental illness, because it felt by then as if I was reading about a friend. I am watching "Oranges are not the only fruit" again and it is disturbing to watch.
Mrs Winterson is certainly a complex character, and not all bad. She clearly put thought and effort into bringing up her adopted daughter, for example putting biblical quotations into her school bag, but how sad that she couldn't show affection or share a sense of fun with her. She is not painted as a villain in the book, but rather as an enormous presence, fascinating and frustrating, unhappy but determined. Was it she I wonder who took the cover photographs? Excellent choices. An excellent book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerising, 11 May 2010
Absolutely love this film, can watch it over and over. Ignore the awful beginning with the young Lancelot, it gets much better!
