5.0 out of 5 stars Irish charm brought to life!, 31 May 2015
This review is from: Hear My Song [DVD] (DVD)
Wonderful film full of pathos and laughter whilst a tear is not far away. Shame that the first part is missing where it shows Micky getting a nose bleed which helps you understand a later scene which involves a nose bleed. I originally bought this from Germany which was the only version available at the time but i loved the film so much i just had to have an English copy which i could watch without having to go through the start up rigmarole involved on the German disc. I would heartily recommend this film to anyone who loves good music, great acting and a proper story line with a beginning a middle and a happy ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new experience., 23 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought the collection on Blueray plus Resident Evil Retribution also on blue ray to replace all previous DVDs, cost plus better reproduction makes it a worthwhile move for anyone who wants to watch the films as the producers meant you to see them. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend doing the same as me to anyone.

The Hard Way (Jack Reacher, Book 10)
The Hard Way (Jack Reacher, Book 10)
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars He's back!!!!, 13 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found that in the last couple of books Lee Child seemed to wander off a bit and the tales of Jack Reacher suffered as a result but not so with The Hard Way, this is Lee Child and Jack Reacher at their very best and he's right back on form with the latest offering titled Personal but back to The Hard Way, it is a well written story that keeps you guessing right the way through, Jack is his usual violent but fair self, he sets out to help put things right and for once gets it all wrong and is then pushed for time to get things back on track. Jack's ability to analyse situations and to be able to tell the time perfectly even without a watch and at the same time find room for a bit of romance are all shown very clearly but as laways it's his sense of justice and fairness that wins the day a makes for a great book. Recommend this one to your family and friends and you won't go wrong.

3.0 out of 5 stars What a let down., 12 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If someone had told me this was James Patterson's first book i wouldn't have been suprised, the writing is well below the standard i have come to expect of James, wasted words to simply pad out a sentence make it read like a schoolboy's essay. Perhaps the poor standard is due to the collaboration as the story in itself is fairly good so long as you can overlook sentences like "they waited while his lightning mind came to the conclusion" another problem which may well be just mine but the multitude of indian names made for very hard reading, you didn't even know the gender of the person intill you are told. All in all a very disappointing book.


The Skin Collector: Lincoln Rhyme Book 11
The Skin Collector: Lincoln Rhyme Book 11
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Not to be missed!!!, 22 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have never read a Lincoln Rhyme book read this and you will become an instant fan and try to get as many of the other books as soon as possible. If you are buying for a friend or relative buy two copies and read one yourself so that when the other person raves about it you'll know what they're talking about. The twists at the end are like a ghost train ride, you just never see it coming and when you do you think to yourself bloody hell!!! Like all Jeffery Deaver books the writing is clear and precise, there are no uses of swear words where none is necessary but the descriptive writing makes you feel as though you are there. I cannot recommend The skin collector more highly and would encourage other people to buy it immediately but allow enough time to read it in one sitting as putting it down is not an option. Happy reading!


Six Years

5.0 out of 5 stars The best from the best., 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Six Years (Kindle Edition)
6 Years has more twists and turns than the Great Maze at Hampton Court and keeps you guessing from beginning to end much like the maze. It is without doubt the best book I have read in my 66 years of reading. Don't recommend it to your friends insist that they buy it themselves, whatever you do don't lend them your copy or you won't get it back. Myron Bolitar could not track down a better thrill a minute page turner. This one is a definite must to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought for my wife., 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heartburn [DVD] [1986] (DVD)
Although this film is an old one it still lets you see what fine actors Meryll Streep and Jack Nicholson are and what a talent they had early in their careers and how they become the superstars they are now. This was bought as our old copy on video can no longer be watched and it was an opportunity too good to miss. If you've never seen Heartburn then i recommend you buy it and watch and then recommend it to your friends and family, not just a chick flick but worth watching with a female partner so you can say you only watched it for them and pretend that you really didn't enjoy it yourself.

This review is from: Love Letters (Audio CD)
Not up to his usual standards and if you're a fan you'll have heard it all before. Good listening if you're a first time buyer of Andre Rieu's discs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must to be read., 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Peter Lovesey has done it again but this time with bells on, not particularly fast paced but what a fantastic read. Having just finished it i'm now reading another book but have The tooth tattoo ready to read again immediately after. The story twists and turns till you don't know if you're on your head or your elbow, i defy you to reach the correct result before you actually read it. There is nothing to dislike about this book and once reaad you'll be able to recommend it to your friends with confidence. Like all Peter Lovesey's books it makes you impatient for the next one.
