The Choice [DVD] [2016]

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad adaptation of a good book., 27 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Choice [DVD] [2016] (DVD)
This must be the worst film adaptation of any of the Nicholas Sparks DVDs that I have seen. The acting is appalling and the director seems to think that a hopeless screenplay of a good book can be made up for by lots of pretty scenery of North Carolina. Very, very disappointing! I bet Sparks is disappointed too! One for the recycle bin.

3.0 out of 5 stars 'See Me' as a thriller., 8 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: See Me (Paperback)
This book kept me reading as it's a thriller and as usual very well researched by Sparks. Too well perhaps; it's hard to remember all the previous detail as the story moves towards its violent and graphic end. However the inevitable 'Epilogue' gives us a happy end for the pair of lovers.

Nicholas Sparks brings together two people with I think the most extreme differences of background and personality that I know of in his novels. But he brings it off in an amazing story. Still, I prefer the gentler novels like At First Sight or The Choice.

Mahler: Symphony No. 1
Mahler: Symphony No. 1

3.0 out of 5 stars Overblown performance, 24 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mahler: Symphony No. 1 (Audio CD)
I was disappointed with this CD because it sounded so exactly what it was, namely a recording of a concert performance where conductor and orchestra were out to impress the audience with their musical abilities rather than give a tasteful interpretation of Mahler's music. I wish I had purchased the alternative CD of symphonies 1 and 2 instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD, 8 Nov. 2014

This is a great and varied programme of music and the euphonium playing is unbelievably good! We loved the new piece by Karl Jenkins.

3.0 out of 5 stars Family and children viewing, 8 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good film if you are a family with children who will be very happy and amused by the story leading up to Christmas. Not really suitable for adults-only viewing. A real make-believe film script and acting to suit.

P.S. I Love You [DVD] [2008]
Dvd ~ Hilary Swank
Price: £2.85

2.0 out of 5 stars We have seen her show great acting ability in several films in her later career ..., 23 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: P.S. I Love You [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
My wife and I both thought this an awful film and that a young Swank must have thought she would be in it only for the publicity!
We have seen her show great acting ability in several films in her later career such as Freedom Writers, but this one is a useless story.

2.0 out of 5 stars A distorted biography, 9 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Teresa of Avila (Paperback)
I was very disappointed with this book. The author was overly influenced by an analytic philosophical outlook which prevented him from ever allowing St Teresa herself from speaking effectively about her real spirituality.

So, the reader was virtually cut off from knowing her and her writing, and being able to be touched and directed by either. Contrast this with the treatment of her and St John of the Cross in Edward Yarnold's chapter in the book 'the Study of Spirituality', SPCK, 1986.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad Buy!, 17 Feb. 2014

This flexi-back edition is just rubbish and the publisher should be ashamed of the standard. The print is very feint and after a little use pages start to come out!


Landscapes and Geomorphology: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
Landscapes and Geomorphology: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent survey and explanation of contemporary geomorphology and integration with landscape., 17 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great little book if you are coming to the subject for the first time. I puts the sciences involved in excellent focus and really shows how important the interdisciplinary context is for understanding the relationship between geomorphology and the contemporary global landscape. There is an adequate human perspective to the whole treatment. I guess if you wanted perfection you would want an extension into sustainability and human influence on habitat and architecture. But this is a very short introduction, and Oxford UP are to be congratulated on adding another valuable addition to their growing series.
