5.0 out of 5 stars Total head cases, 27 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this show. This is the latest season I've got and it's just as good as the other five. If you haven't seen it, you might need to start from the beginning. Basically it's the story of two partners who run a supposed 'psychic detective agency', despite the fact that the psych isn't psychic, just very good at noticing everything. They do work as consultants to the police who they have a love/hate relationship with. It's funny and dramatic and the stories revolve around a mystery that needs to be solved (usually a murder). There's also some ongoing character development, which doesn't get in the way, as it does in other series, and lots of references to films, people, foodstuffs and just about anything you can think of. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Carrie come home!, 27 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great book, part fiction, but obviously also autobiographical in many ways. It made for a terrific movie with Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine (as Carrie and Debbie Reynolds - though they have different names). I think my favourite line is 'Delayed gratification takes too long', but it's packed with bon mots and story. And you forget Princess Leia, which must be great for Carrie! Highly recommended for anyone who likes a funny book that's also serious. And if you're a Carrie Fisher reader or fan, then you have to have this.

4.0 out of 5 stars A strange, but clever tale, 27 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not your usual Christie feast, but well worth the read. There's some black magic and superstition, suspicious deaths and a murderer that you might not get until the end. Lots of twists in the tale, danger for the main characters and some great names. It's not a Marple novel, though the TV series got her in there, just as they did with The Sittaford Mystery, which never featured her in the book, but got her involved in the TV plot! Though there is Ariadne Oliver in the story. A fun read if you like this kind of thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favourites, 27 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's one of Agatha's novels without any of her famous detectives. It's a quite complex little mystery revolving around a woman who decides to go on a cruise on a whim and the people she meets. It's also written like a diary, so viewpoints change as it goes. There are mysterious men and women, possibly diamonds and as usual it all turns out well in the end. And you'll learn some words for facial features you may not know!

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting plot, 27 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You might have seen this as a Poirot episode with David Suchet, but in the book there is no Poirot, so don't be disappointed. It revolves around the story of a secretary who works for a company that sends out people to do typing or stenography work, who discovers she's in the house of someone who never requested her and finds a dead body behind a sofa. Screaming, she's helped by a man with his own agenda for being in the area. The title comes from the fact that there are several clocks in the room that the owner (who's blind) knows nothing about, all of which are set to a particular wrong time. A good read, but do suspend that disbelief!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story but a bit far fetched, 27 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my review of the Kindle ebook version. I read it quite a few years ago as a paperback and it has a good twist, but when you take into account all the things and timings that had to happen, it does seem a little bit like Christie was having a bit of a laugh herself. I loved the film version, which was even more camp than could be imagined; loved the David Suchet episode, which was more in tune with the book itself. Still drives on a timeline that relies on a lot of coincidence. Would still recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stories, deftly told, 20 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great collection of short stories. They have a wide range of appeal and though some are a little more disturbing than others, they have a way of making you read them with a twist in the tale that is not obvious and may make you smile, worry or just feel slightly creeped out. I would recommend this anthology to anyone who wants a good read - and particularly to those who might want to write their own tightly-written short stories of whatever scale or type. There's something for everyone here. There's a mix of charity shop awfulness, theft, unexplained deaths and everything in between. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd not heard of her, now I can't get enough!, 19 Aug. 2013

Some of you may know her. I didn't, but my partner found her on the Internet and we were both amazed by her voice. And she lives up to all expectations. Good choice of songs as well. Maury Yeston has written music and/or lyrics for musicals like Nine and Titanic, both of which won him Tony Awards. Well worth a punt!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure chemistry, 19 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do like shows that can mix drama with comedy and poignancy. it's a very fine line to find humour in some very disturbing cases. In this series, relationships are in jeopardy, family values challenged and as usual there's lots of danger for everyone concerned. Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander are perfect in the roles - opposites that attract, as it were. Lorraine Bracco as the mum is great and she could be Angie Harmon's mum! A seriously good series and one of the better cop shows out there. The writers, mainly Janet Tamaro have taken Tess Gerritsen's characters and expanded them brilliantly.

This review is from: All This Happiness (Audio CD)
I love this woman. I've seen her live, both in cabaret and in shows and she is amazing. Her voice and poise are stunning. She's a very accomplished singer with a unique voice. Anyone who's into musical theatre or good cabaret should buy this and her other albums too!
