5.0 out of 5 stars Original and at once familiar, 15 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A police procedural set in a pre-apocalyptic world, with a hero who's most explosive expletive is 'holy-moly'! An unlikely combination for success but it is successful, a riveting, enjoyable teasing whodunnit that keeps you going to the end. Very, very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wise Words, 28 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We may think ourselves more evolved or civilised than those who lived over 2000 years ago but Seneca provides wisdom that is as relevant now as t was then. A very easy to read book that throws up the origins of a lot of our commonly held beliefs about how to tackle the joys and difficulties of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Noir Heaven, 28 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It had to happen, the Swedes and the Danes combine to give us a Wallander/Killing joint front that blows contemporary British thrillers out of the water. I wasn't sure about this to start, I thought the idea too convoluted and contrived but Saga and Martin wore me down. Saga's character is the more challenging for a fiction writer/actor to get right but Sofua Helin does a great job. As anti-heroes go they are both brilliantly portrayed. Martin Is a more traditional flawed detective but this is notched up a bit more by exposing his infidelity and moral uncertainty to great effect. The plot leaves you guessing pretty much up to the last couple of episodes. The Danes and Swedes must produce some dross television the same as the rest of us but if they keep coming out with dramas equal in quality to Wallander, The Killing, Borgen and The Bridge then I'll remain a fan.

I'm not a fan of every Orbison song but there's no denying the beauty of the man's voice and the esteem with which he was held by other great musicians, this is great gig.

This review is from: Long Wave (Audio CD)
The production values might have been a bit better, he made this at his home in LA but great renderings of some classic songs.

2.0 out of 5 stars Whisky Galore it is not., 11 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I want to be a Ken Loach fan, I really do, because I admire what he does, why he does it and the commitment and authenticity he brings to movie making but, for me at least, this is not the film to seal the deal. The plot is contrived and uneven.Tthe characters are at one and the same time original, their language authentic but their relationships and progression the stuff of whimsy. The humour is heavy handed and jarring. The whimsical blurs uneasily with the gritty nihilism and aggression that forms the backdrop to their lives. I was depressed by this movie rather than uplifted or edified by it. Not his best.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great voice, but of its time., 11 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We heard Lou's hit, "My Lady Love" recently and this sparked a sentimental reminiscence for my own Lady Love, who demanded we buy this album. She remembered the song from its first release. Lou Rawls has a great voice, the equal of his comtemporaries, but I found the songs let him down here. The majority are not timeless classics, they are very much of their time, all that said, you can't help but love Lou's delivery of them. An album for devotees rather than new listeners.


Intuition Pumps and Other Tools for Thinking

4.0 out of 5 stars Makes you think so much that it hurts., 11 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mr Dennett's writing style is entertaining and illuminating even if the subject matter is difficult to get to grips with. There were a couple of epiphany moments in this book but it will require two or three reads, possibly more, for a casual philosopher like me to get to grips with all the points he makes. Compared to Mr Dennett and the intellectual circle within which he operates, I am like a caveman, squatting on the ground, pleased with myself for banging two rocks together to create the odd spark. Philosophy is important in the same way that science is, the two compliment each other, that seems to be the big message here and I agree.
