Delicious chocolates with genuine liqueur centre. They seemed to be devoured far too quickly. Wish we had ordered two boxes.

5.0 out of 5 stars UNTOUCHABLES - A TALE FILLED WITH PATHOS AND LAUGHTER, 13 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Untouchable [DVD] (2011) (DVD)
I saw this at the local cinema and sent the DVD to my cousin who lives in the UK and is in a wheel chair and has MS. He had told me about his carers and this seemed just the right DVD to send him.

It is a humane story and was well acted. Can't fault it all. Everyone should see it, even though it is in French, it has English subtitles.

The House of Fiction

4.0 out of 5 stars Susan swings it to Us - The House of Fiction, 13 Jun. 2014

This review is from: The House of Fiction (Paperback)
Heard this book being reviewed with the author and a Late Line Live presenter on Radio National, Australia. Truth is stranger than fiction and in this case, the Jolleys present a most disturbing picture of a couple who lied and were deceitful in the extreme. Elizabeth Jolley is well known in Australia, although deceased, her books sell well. Once Susan's account of the way they behaved (she being the daughter of Leonard Jolley), her books take on a different meaning. How these two could live with themselves beggars belief.

Was disappointed to read that Susan never confronted her father and step mother when she visited them in Australia. That is incredible too!!

The book was a bit long and her wanderings around Western Australia could have been cut out.

Dvd ~ Steve Buscemi
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars BOARDWALK EMPIRE - STORY ABOUT PROHIBITION, 3 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rhis is the first in the series of 3 (MAYBE 4). It is an intriguing take on the wealthy people involved in making money out of prohibition who live around the famous Boardwalk of Atlantic City The characters' emotional lives are intertwined in the story in a satisfying way. Of course there is a lot of violence as you would imagine. Steve Buscemi as the kingpin in the story and Kelly McDonald who belongs to the Women's Temperance Society, and whose husband is murdered by Buscemi's hanchmen plays the part of the woman drawn into Buscemi's life with realism.

A good story, one that keeps you asking what will happen next. You will long to see the second series too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Justice Kirby - Treatise on homophobia, 4 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Justice Michael Kirby is well known in Australia. He has been a driving force for human rights, especially applying to homosexuals, of which he is one. The book is very easy to read and has some good insights, especially his experiences in Zambia. Quite an enjoyable read, but for me, the best chapter which resonated was the last chapter about his relations and his relationship with his long time partner.

I recommend the book, you will learn a lot about Kirby.

5.0 out of 5 stars brain Plasticity - what a breakthrough, 10 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
THE BRAIN THAT CHANGES ITSELF:

This is a very interesting book which illustrates that the brain is not hardwired as believed up to now.One can relearn old skills and adopt new ones. It is easy to read, very accessible in fact. The chapter on love and sex was an eyeopener and every male should read this book.

Use it or Lose it is the maxim I feel!
