5.0 out of 5 stars shows that love really is the law, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this s a great book - not just for toyah fans - but for anyone that has ever fallen in love with music and obsessed over any popstar. the actual subject of the book is irrelevant - it's the lengths that fans go to to to show their love and devotion and to devour every bit of their idols output that is far more interesting. Whilst Chris Limb chronicles his own life in line with the career of his obsession, this journey could quite easily be transferred to many other pop-kids. A great read and must buy for anyone that's ever loved an icon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great - but what a lazy Author!, 23 July 2007
yeah, obviously loved it - but very very lazily written!!!

Any book in a series should stand up in it's own right and the author should not take for granted that the reader had read all previous instalments.

For this to happen once could be deemed an oversight, but I got so frustrated with JK's littering of previous events and ephemera without any explanation, that the story was somewhat marred!

Not that she cares if she's a good writer or if people notice these things - she's a multi-millionairess for christsakes!

5.0 out of 5 stars it's a Musical, 20 May 2006
This review is from: The Producers [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
how can someone give this a poor review for having more music than movie?

It's a musical for cryin out loud!

I love the original movie that this was based on, but i think this new musical version is just as good, yet in it's own right.

It's difficult to compare the two, dispite having the same writer, story and often the same dialogue, they are completey different with their own merit.

I was truly expecting to hate this, but was wowed by the fantastic performances of both Nathan Lane (Max) and Matthew Broderick (Leo) and as for the musical numbers - well! They are just fantastic in a pastiche of everything Hollywood produced in the 30-50's classical era. The director and production team really had done their homework on old-Broadway and old-Hollywood and recreated an era where Busby Berkeley's style ruled the musical stage/screen.

Some of the other reviewers of this film, I think have completely missed the point of what pastiche might be and have taken this far too seriously - it's not, it's nothing more than a fantabulous technicolor romp!

Oh and rumour has it a musical version of *Young Frankenstein* is exactly what Mel Brooks is currently working on!
