5.0 out of 5 stars Cult Classic, 2 July 2013
Clearly not a film for everyone. Coming to it on cinema release from a clean slate with little prior knowledge and no preconceptions, I was amazed. Going away and reading the novel I was blown away. One of the best books I've read in nearly 40 years. So I went out and bought all of David Mitchell's novels and I am reading them slowly and savouring every line. The wonder of this film is that it divides opinion so starkly. You will either love it or hate it. My guess is that if Blade Runner is in your all time top 5 you will love this. Enough said.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius, 5 Sep 2010
Discovered The Veils whilst living in NZ between 2006 and 2009. This album is a masterpiece and Finn Andrews is a genius, his father must be very proud. This is an album of integrity, power, soulfulness and sheer unbridled belief in ones ability. Why The Veils are not a major band is beyond me. Who are they like...well nobody really. Listen to Jesus for the juglar, a song pomp rockers Kasabian would kill for. Any serious music fan should be on board by now. Wake up ENGLAND!!!!!!!

Like many others who have written reviews here I am a long term William Boyd fan. In fact I would say that he (still) is my favourite living writer. Fortunately I didn't purchase this latest book (credit crunch) rather I reserved it from my library at a cost of 70p. I think it unlikely that I will complete it, having read a hundred or so pages and having the Stieg Larsson trilogy waiting invitingly for my attention on the coffee table.

The problems are manifold. As has already been said the central premise is totally unconvincing. Pages and pages are devoted to Kindred's agonising over what course of action to take but however hard Mr Boyd tries, it just doesn't hold water… Read more
