After reading Amanda Brooke's debut Novel, `Yesterday's Sun' - and it becoming an all-time favourite book of mine, I just knew I had to read her second literary offering `Another Way To Fall'. I wasn't disappointed! Amanda has a way of writing which is almost mystical - a beautiful blend of mixing the reality of life with the day-dreams of how we'd like our life's to be.

At the start of `Another Way To Fall' we quickly discover that the main character, Emma - is unlikely to survive when her brain tumour recurs after a remission.

I loved this book. Anyone interested in pregnancy and childbirth should read it. It taught me a lot about midwifery practice and how it has changed over the Years.

I loved this film. It was a traditional, British Horror film. Of the Haunted and Paranormal variety. Rebecca Hall as Florence, and Imelda Staunton were fantastic in their roles. I thought it was much better and more believable than 'The Others' and 'Sixth Sense'. It was scary in a thought provoking way - no cheap thrills, like other similar films. It really examined how the mind reacts to grief. There were many twists and turns towards the end of the film - which made you want to watch it all over again, to truly understand the plot. This in essence, is the mark of a good film. I wont go over the plot line - other reviewers have done that superbly already. What I will say in… Read more
