5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect book, 25 Nov 2006
When I was around fifteen my parents and I had this deal where for every "classic" book I bought (and read), they would buy me the usual books I would tend to (Stephen King, Chistopher Pike, in fact, anything with blood and gore). Watership Down was one of classics I bought to keep them happy. However, despite the attitude I had to sitting down to reading this "book about rabbits," it didn't take long for me fall in love with this book. Hard.

I couldn't agree more with the reviewer who talked about the goosebumps he feels every times he reads the opening lines "The primroses were over." The whole book is truely sensational and a classic for a reason.

An amazing,… Read more

Enemy at the Gates [2001] [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Jude Law

Having read the book on which this film is based, War of the Rats, i was looking forward to putting some visuals to an excellent book (go out and buy it). Enemy at the Gates definitely does justice to the book throughout the firts three quarters of the film. Tense battles of wits between the two snipers (Harris and Law) both grips and interests you. It is nice to see some realistic battle scenes with tactics as the main focus. However the end and how Law eventually beats Harris is laughable. I won't ruin it for you, but a trained sniper of Koenig's (his name in the book - for some reason it is different in the film) would not have died like he did. The books lengthy description of how… Read more
