Brilliant characterisation and acting in a highly atmospheric setting - what more can one ask? All the films in the series look in depth at relationships and portray their subtle shades and movements in an intimate and realistic way.
I could only skim this book, it is so badly written: every time anyone says anything they seem to 'whisper' or 'murmur' it - they never speak out boldly; the style is even unworthy of Mills & Boone; the characterisation is bare, to say the least; and the plot is nonsensical. The erotic bits I, as a male, did not find titillating in the slightest - though my girlfriend did, so maybe it is indeed written for women. Overall, I was reluctant to give it any stars at all - thank goodness I did not buy the whole trilogy!
This Hoya filter Hoya 67mm Super HMC Pro-1 Cir-Polarizing Filter performs well (best at 90 degrees to the sun of course), giving very sharp images and, for example, well-darkened blue skies. I have used it on a Nikon D300 with a 16-85mm lens and there is no apparent image degradation. A worthwhile purchase.
