3.0 out of 5 stars Philip Marlowe - not quite., 19 Jun 2014
I used to quite enjoy Powers Boothe's attempts to recreate Marlowe for the T.V. Unfortunately, having re-watched these short stories, I must go back to my original conclusion that no one, not even Humphrey Bogart ever got Marlowe right!


Playback
Playback
by Raymond Chandler
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.29

4.0 out of 5 stars Playback - Marlowe is back!, 19 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Playback (Paperback)
Playback is the last completed Philip Marlowe novel, and somehow it feels that way. It lacks the intensity (and brilliance) of the earlier stories. Compared to such masterpieces as The Big Sleep and The Long Goodbye this seems a rather shallow affair. However, if you like Chandler this is still very readable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Family 3 - Great Fun., 19 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is sometimes difficult to decide why we enjoy something so much. Good comedy has a lot to do with interesting and likeable characters, characters that have some of our own traits and quirks. Modern Family is full of such characters, there is not one of the main cast that is not vulnerable to the challenges that life throws at us. The way that they deal with those challenges, not always successfully, provides the fascination in this series. A very likeable, enjoyable and funny series. Great fun!


Truman
Truman

5.0 out of 5 stars Truman - "the forgotten president"., 19 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Truman (Paperback)
A wonderful biography of an extraordinary ordinary man. Very detailed but always interesting. It tells the fascinating story of a man who had to deal with many challenges during his life and presidency and generally came up with reasonable decisions after deep consideration. It seems strange that a man who made so many difficult decisions that effected the whole world has been apparently forgotten by history in favour of such towering figures as Roosevelt and Kennedy. This book gives us the reasons why Harry deserves a place at Mount Rushmore as much as any other president!

4.0 out of 5 stars Carry on Bilbo!!, 19 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good film, even if it does vary from the book in many ways. It follows the Peter Jackson model closely, but that is generally a positive. Unfortunately, potentially the most exciting and interesting section with Smaug was not quite right! It would have been more thrilling and mysterious if they had stuck more closely to the book during this chapter. Still, a very enjoyable film, far better than most others around at present.

For anyone who loves wood and woods this is a must-read book! Full of fascinating anecdotes and knowledge. It makes you want to go and sit in a wood and smell the bluebells after rain, quietly waiting for the tawnies and the badgers to appear.

What an amazing black cartridge!! It is by far the most exciting black cartridge I have ever bought. It so compliments the texture of my printer. You just would not believe how beautifully it clipped in!! Can't wait for it to run out so that I can buy another!!
