4.0 out of 5 stars An obvious plot that twists and turns into the unexpected, 21 Dec 2010
This review is from: Nobel Son [DVD] (DVD)
When you start watching this movie, the plot is obvious: a nobel-nominated professor heads off to Sweden to get his award and his son is kidnapped. The ransom is paid, the son is returned. All is well in the world. Its at this stage you realize the movie hasn't finished and you then enter the next phase. The plot twists around, and you get to learn more about the kidnapper, why he did it (hint: revenge!). Then, just as you get your head around this new plot, it twists again, and heads off in a different (and darker) direction. Throughout the movie, just when you think you understand the characters and their motives, things change around and you have to reevaluate your position (and pay attention to things). The only criticism is that the first part of the movie seems to develop very slowly, whilst the second and third parts move quickly; a bit of judicious editing in that first part would have been welcome.

5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read, 1 Dec 2010
This book is about Daniel, whose parents have gone exploring the world and don't return home. Daniel then lives with his Aunt Severe, discovers a family of dragons living in her garden, and the adventure begins. The story is told in a straightforward manner in a world where there are heros and villains, courage and bravery, a love story (involving Daniel's Aunt and her long-lost love), and a happy ending (that leaves the door open to a sequel, or better yet the start of a series). An enjoyable read made even more by the many illustrations that immerse you into the story.

If you are developing any applications that need to query, read, or write to the NT Event Log, you need this book. It is full of useful information and code snippets.
