This review is from: The Deep Blue Sea (Amazon Video)
[some spoilers here]: Great performances from Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston, but the story was somehow not quite plausible. Sure, it's a period piece, but her actions still don't quite make sense, or rather her motivations don't. She knows that her lover doesn't actually love her and never has, but says that she was brought up to believe it was the men who did the loving - the implication being that she enjoys the unfamiliar feeling of unrequited love, being the supplicant rather than the beloved. She is in what would now be termed an emotionally abusive relationship, and she can't walk away, because she wants passion and danger, in a rather cliched way, whereas her husband offers her Shakespeare's sonnets and real, enduring but humdrum love. I think basically I found her character massively annoying, whereas her husband and her lover were more plausible and consistent characters. Simon Russell Beale actually stole the show in terms of acting.
Overall, the film was just a bit.... average. Still, at least I learnt what fubar actually means.

This review is from: The Sense of an Ending (Paperback)
you don't have to have read any of Julian Barnes' other novels to enjoy this. It reminded me a bit of Kazuo Ishiguru and of Ian McEwan in the description of insecurities, missed opportunities, events which seem straightforward but are in fact a turning point. It's quite short, I read it easily in one day, it is absolutely tragic and yet very real and incredibly well written, so that you imagine that you yourself could write it, the words flow so naturally, but really not many people have such a skill, to write something that is really a simple story, the exact nature of which is not everyday but the feelings so recognisable that when I had finished it I thought i had actually learnt something about myself and the world

feels nice, good fit, no problems with these at all - make sure you wear them when trying on ski boots as they are quite thick, i.e. any other long socks would be too thin

3.0 out of 5 stars didn't look like the photo, 2 April 2013

The ones I received were an off-white colour throughout, without the black tips, which means they get dirty very easily. more importantlyl, there is no velcro strap or fastening, so they are quite annoying to take on and off when wearing a ski jacket.
