The Cold Equations by Tom Godwin
The Cold Equations by Tom Godwin
Do not be put off by the sexist 70s cover of this book. Nowhere in the stories is there a scantily clad warrior woman. Instead I enjoyed all of the stories which are well written, suspenseful with a very human element. I originally read the short novel, "Survivors" in another compilation of sci fi stories, and bought this book as a result. Tom Godwin portrays his worlds as stark and unforgiving frontiers, and his characters as pioneers. Each story draws the reader in, and has a moral dilemma at it's core. I really enjoyed this book, and would highly recommend it.

Despite the poor reviews I decided to watch this and was pleasantly surprised. With none of the major special effects of Hollywood sci fi/horror films, it still manages to pack in moments of suspense, and kept me watching. The characters are believable with problems and weaknesses which contribute well to the storyline. It may have gone on a little longer than it needed to, but overall an enjoyable film.

5.0 out of 5 stars I believe in Santa, 17 Aug 2014
Brilliant film, full of fun. As well as the amazing animation, there is lots of humour, hair-raising moments, and the true spirit of Christmas. Great for all the family!
