Horse of Her Own Pub Can by Selma Hudnut
Horse of Her Own Pub Can by Selma Hudnut
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Pony Book, 28 Aug 2014
Selma Hudnut's books, few of which are available in England ('Horse of her Own' - the Pub Can end does not exist, being the most popular and easiest to find), are wonderful pony books of the old kind that are no longer published. These days, the title has to have Horse Whisperer or Horse Gentler in it (which most characters aren't), and although I am one of those and wrote my books some 30 years ago when they were unacceptable, I find that the modern 'alternative' pony book is incredibly boring while I have read Horse of Her Own (as well as Irish Hurdles, The Redhead and the Roan), over and over again. If you love this type of 'real-life' pony book and can't find one of the titles here,… Read more
Dalziel & Pascoe: Complete Collection, 11 Seasons <b>DVD</b> ~ Richard E. Grant

Nevertheless, I give it the full five stars as it is a great… Read more
Larry Crowne [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Tom Hanks
Larry Crowne [DVD] DVD ~ Tom Hanks
My problem is that even as far back as Sleepless in Seattle, Tom Hanks as a romantic leading man simply didn't do it for me. He is not a bad actor (Philadelphia and Terminal were two films where I really admired him), but as a man he gives me the creeps! And I love Julia Roberts but even she can't get Hanks to develop any kind of on-screen chemistry. As far as I am concerned this film simply didn't have it, The story doesn't save the bad casting anymore than the directing did.
