I'm always ready to accept that books and films of the same are often very different, and consequently watch/read with an open mind. Unfortunately this is a very disappointing result, not because it takes a different direction to the book, but because it felt too 'Hollywood'... some scenes were too contrived and far from the natural storytelling that it should have been; I cringed many times and felt it didn't do the story justice. The book is interesting, but is predominantly about the Son's life, with snippets about Philomena... I cried several times, connecting in a way that I didn't get from the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed!, 15 Oct 2013
I was looking for a thin fabric pen to put dots on linen. It's perfect, didn't bleed and easy to use - no need for messy fabric paint and tools. Very pleased and as expected, a very good 'Uni' pen.

For reference - instructions for use are to be found on the pen barrel; pens of this type need the 'up & down' motion on the nib to open the flow - similar to those christmas metallic ink pens with metal barrel!!!

I love the 'Miranda' series, and long may her comedic antics continue! A a refreshing comedian with a hilarious take on life's happenings! Such fun!
