As always, a thoroughly enjoyable read from Miss Binchy. Nothing to be offended by, just a wish to be at Stone House too.

The Moment by Claire Dyer had me hooked immediately. The depth of the characters made them real and I wanted to find out where their journeys took them. A great book, beautifully written. I'm looking forward to Claire's next one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't live up to expectation, 26 July 2011

This review is from: Re: ECM (Audio CD)
I was really lookign forward to this one. Had heard about it months ago and thought it could be one of those good ones for 2011. Sadly I was disappointed. The originals mainly left in the background. The new twist ? Well there is one but it almost got a bit irritating at some point getting just some sort of bleeping-noise all the time. Shame really. Check out Panthalassa's Miles Davis remixed instead. Works better for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Is it really true ?, 14 May 2009

Can you learn the piano in 6 weeks ? The short answer would have to be no. Certainly not in my experience and certainly not with this book. I am a beginner and I've only been playing for about 3 months having picked up some basics from another book along the way. I thought this one might be a good chance to improve my playing but I got totally confused and gave up on day 2. I had to read one chapter about 10 times and still didn't get it. Might be my lack of skill but then what would be the whole point. He goes on about how easy it is going to be and then suddenly you are supposed to play some chords and notes just from out of nowhere.
I don't think you can get around the fact that if you want to pick up an instrument and learn it properly that you have to invest a lot of time and effort in order to become a decent player. There is no short-cut like this book would suggest. Sorry.
