It amazed me how such a book can receive such publicity and great reviews. This is one of the most boringly dull books I have read in years, and believe me, I have read some stinkers. Where, pray tell is all the suspense which hundreds of reviewers rave about? Where too are the cliffhangers? Where are the hooks which want you to keep turning the pages? The first 240 pages are repeat, repeat, repeat. "I went to sleep, I forgot, Somebody told me to write a journal, I went to sleep, I forgot....I read my journal...YAWN". The book did pick up slowly, very slowly after page 240 but what a chore it was to keep turning the pages for more of the same. I don't think I have ever given up on a… Read more

A cyber friend in my classical world put me on to this cd in October, I showered the stored but could not find it anywhere. Praise be for Amazon!!, this is the String Quartet version of Josef Haydn's setting of the Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross, incorporating seven movements with a introduction and finale, here the Rosamunde quartet give us a truly realised version of this masterpiece. Each movement is written in adagio form and set from words to music for quartet. For me its one of Haydn's greatest works. I went as far to say as this cd was my musical discovery of the year, the best cd I have purchased from Amazon this year to date. The Rosamunders play in complete harmony… Read more
