Dublin
Dublin
by Edward Rutherfurd
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Dublin by Edward Rutherfurd, 23 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dublin (Mass Market Paperback)
I have read all of Rutherfurd's books and always been delighted with them. They are all beautifully written and in an interesting way that makes it difficult to put the books down, And they are meticulously researched. The result is that Rutherfurd brings history alive for a lot of people who otherwise might not be so interested in learning about times past. Dublin is no exception. It is a splendid account of the evolution of yet another great city and once again I was both enthralled and delighted. A wonderful book and well-worth reading.


World Order: Reflections on the Character of Nations and the Course of History
World Order: Reflections on the Character of Nations and the Course of History
by Henry Kissinger
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Henry Kissinger - one of the few remaining great statesmen of our time., 22 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent and very compact and well-written summary of the concept and need for some form of world order, supported by a number of very clear, in-depth analyses of various key regions and some of the main issues that face us today. Henry Kissinger is without doubt one of the few remaining great statesmen of our time and his first-hand global experience is unique as well as being highly impressive. He offers no fast solutions to today's global problems, and one wouldn't expect him to. But he does help us to better understand the various problems and their complexities and I find that to be very helpful.

A first class book.

Price: £3.48

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic Instinct 2, 3 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed Basic Instinct (1) so it was natural for me to buy the sequel. However, while the sequel is also good, it is not quite in the same class as the original. This seems to happen with a lot of second and third attempts to keep the original magic alive. Pity. Perhaps a part of the original magic was the fascinating interaction between Sharon Stone and Michael Douglas. That really was something quite beyond normal acting. In the sequel Sharon Stone still preforms perfectly but Michael Douglas isn't there and the same magic interaction seems to be missing. Let me hasten to add that it is still and excellent movie and that anyone seeing the sequel before having seen the original will probably be delighted..

This review is from: Basic Instinct [DVD] (DVD)
A fine example of modern-movie making at its best. The film is loaded with sex and violence very cleverly contained within a first-class story and plot with an original twist. Great acting!.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funés is one of France's most popular and most brilliant comedy actors, 13 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Funés is one of France's most popular and most brilliant comedy actors. However, unless your French is good enough to capture his humour without sub-titles be careful when ordering because many of his films are without English sub-titles.

An excellent recording featuring the original cast. I bought it to replace my old LP so I can listen to it in the car, and I am delighted with it.
