The House of Redgrave: The Lives of a Theatrical D&hellip by Tim Adler

I wish I had read some of the reviews before purchasing this book. 3 chapters in I checked the title as I certainly didn't want a detailed chronicle of the life and work of Tony Richardson. Not only that, mistakes both factual and grammatical are so numerous as to be a constant irritation. An editor's red pen was desperately needed here - why wasn't it applied ?
Who is Tim Adler anyway. I've never read anything of his before and certainly shan't do again.
Deep Sea and Foreign Going: Inside Shipping, the I&hellip by Rose George

This is a delightful mix of little known facts about merchant shipping and personal experience of a voyage on a container ship. It prompted me to research the possibility of embarking on cargo ship voyages, and gave me a sympathetic insight into the lives of the people who transport most of our consumer goods.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'must see' film, 3 Jun 2013
This study of the relationship between a young girl and an elderly man is quite outstanding, and brilliantly acted. After our first viewing we watched it again almost immediately. My only slight reservation is that the last few minutes didn't quite seem to fit the rest of the film - but this is a minor quibble.
This is not a film for those who like violence, horror and dramatic action. But for those who like quiet pleasures and the study of
relationships this is a gem.
