Gomorrah - Series 1 [DVD]
Gomorrah - Series 1 [DVD]
Dvd ~ Marco d Amore
Price: £12.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Started well but the story line are becoming absurd and highly cliched., 3 Jun. 2016

This review is from: Gomorrah - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I will give it to the end of the series (am now on episode 7) unless the story lines get any sillier. Is there any law in Naples? Any policemen at all that don't arrive 10 minutes after the event?


Learning Reimagined
Learning Reimagined
by Graham Brown-Martin
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty amazing book, 22 April 2016
This review is from: Learning Reimagined (Paperback)
Pretty amazing book. The amount of knowledge, thought and expertise put into this book by Brown Martin and photographer Newsha Tavakolian sets the 'thinker' bar very high. The future may start here. If we cared about education enough.

Really excellent book. Kept you on your toes right up until the end. All the components are there: the upper classes, lower classes, South London, Eastern European Sex traffickers, police politics and a ballsy detective. Enjoy. You will.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too many books in the sea (store), 16 Mar. 2016

This review is from: Rubbernecker (Paperback)
I have read Bauer's books before and always find them too child-centric for my taste. 100 pages in and I just can't get into it. So, have to move on.

This review is from: American Psycho (Paperback)
I didn't get it, didn't like it and if you don't know the names of every brand that was trendy in Wall Street when this was written you miss half of the early book. I gave it 60 pages. Life's too short


Good Night and Good Riddance: How Thirty-Five Years of John Peel Helped to Shape Modern Life
Good Night and Good Riddance: How Thirty-Five Years of John Peel Helped to Shape Modern Life
by David Cavanagh
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.59

5.0 out of 5 stars A Marvellous Book!, 3 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't speak for the other books on Peel but I throughout enjoyed this. I approached it with some trepidation: 35 years covered in 600 pages with playlists...... but it was great, almost gripping. For someone my age (b.1955) certainly the late 60s, the 70s and the 80's were way more interesting in the 90s and as much as I have tried over the years, I still don't like The Fall. But love Feargal and The Undertones, punk and Bolan, Bowie, Rod and so many others. It's one of those books you can just read bits as you go, when you feel like it. Time won't age it and I doubt if anyone can better it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fans - be careful, 3 Feb. 2016

Yes - watch out - he is doing a lot of re -naming of old books. They were great at the time so time has not made them less good I don't want to buy it twice. For those fans who were there before the terribly cast TV series, be vigilant.


Fly Like An Eagle
Fly Like An Eagle
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Miller's seminal 70s album, 29 Nov. 2015
This review is from: Fly Like An Eagle (Audio CD)
A lot will turn to The Joker as the highlight of his career and the single was certainly his biggest ever. But the album is very patchy. Fly Like An Eagle is Miller's best work. I bought it again - er..39 years after buying it when it came out and it's as fresh today as back then.

This review is from: ON THE FARM (Audio CD)
I'm a NY fan so have given it 3 instead of 2 stars. To be honest you can find better versions of these songs on other live albums and certainly across YouTube. There is no highlight song and even Rockin' in the Free World is lame. Move on........

2.0 out of 5 stars What is this.......? Old book, regurgitated? No Banks. No Point. Return to Sender., 8 Nov. 2015

This review is from: No Cure For Love (Hardcover)
OK, so his agent has told him you're not making enough money in the UK so write a book about Hollywood. So he has. It is written in Brit-soaked American and is dated and lame. For those of you stick it out I hope it's worth it. Life's too short to read this. I saw this on another review "A twenty year old story, with an updated foreword dated 2015 to make you think it is a new book. This is a shameful thing to do. Whilst I understand why publishers do this to maximise sales of older books on the back of newer popularity I do not understand how an author of the stature of Michael Connelly can stoop this low. Maybe he has the same publisher?"
