This review is from: A Life in Style (Paperback)
A rare treat by Roy Axe. Gives great insight into early Rootes days, less good on later Austin Rover and dca days. Axe worked through a great period in auto design and chronicles it well.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing read, 26 July 2016
Disappointing and amateurish. For such a great story it doesn't really give the background story but reproduces much of existing press and court reports. Poorly written, many basic errors in the editing too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Evocative surfer film, 30 Aug. 2011
Fabulous film from 1965 that tracks the journey of 2 surfers around the globe. Background shots of early 60s cars in California, Africa, Australia. Beautifully shot by hand-held camera, great music and a witty commentary make it very watchable. My 2 boys love it!


Heist: The True Story of the World's Biggest Cash Robbery
Heist: The True Story of the World's Biggest Cash Robbery
by Howard Sounes

4.0 out of 5 stars When's the film?, 13 Mar. 2010
Knowing Kent well, this was a great read. I know many of the locations, pubs, roads very well indeed. Howard Sounes writes a gripping piece, hard to put down once you get past the irritating intro and chapter 1.

Not often you get insight into the criminal world in such detail, and there's a nice comedy aspect to many of the incidents too, especially the trial.

would make a decent film too!

5.0 out of 5 stars a great book, 1 Feb. 2010
Martin Buckley brings all his knowledge to bear on this brilliant reference work that manages to be authoritative and an entertaining read too. A great eye for car accuracy, no details get past Buckley!

Find myself digging it out from the bookshelf every time one of these films is on


And When Did You Last See Your Father? [DVD]
And When Did You Last See Your Father? [DVD]
Dvd ~ Jim Broadbent
Price: £5.94

4.0 out of 5 stars And When did you last see Your Father?, 1 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not Colin Firth's best film but great performance from Jim Broadbent as the irritating doctor father who's dying.

Film doesn't stick too closely to the book, it precis a few parts which is a bit annoying if you've read it. Still, they had to squeeze it into 89 mins
