Grand Theft Auto IV - Classics Edition (Xbox 360) by Take 2 Interactive

When I first played GTA IV, I was not as impressed as I wanted to be. Don't get me wrong, I've always loved the grittiness of Liberty City (GTA III is still one of my favourite games). And it wasn't that I purely missed the landscape of San Andreas, but initially I found SA to be a more pleasing and remarkable game than IV overall.

Young Frankenstein [DVD] [1975] <b>DVD</b> ~ Gene Wilder
This is one of my all-time favourite films. I can laugh and laugh and laugh, but I can also admire how wonderfully made this film is.

The cast performances are wonderful and memorable, and the scene where Gene Wilder and Peter Boyle dance to 'Puttin' on the Ritz' is an absolutely delightful moment.
Great Expectations (Wordsworth Classics) by Charles Dickens
4.0 out of 5 stars Dark and intricate, 29 Dec 2012
Having not entered into Dickens as much as I would like, Great Expectations was nevertheless proof enough to me of Dickens' capability as a writer. The well-developed plot with unforgettable characters cause the novel to retain a hold on the reader long after the book has been put down. In terms of my favourite aspect, the eerie images and details of Miss Havisham's story will forever fascinate and intrigue me.
