1.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT the book of the movie!, 9 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's 16 tedious chapters and 175 long pages till you even start to get to what's in the film. I had hoped for some extra information on the three women in the movie, but the new cover of the book is totally misleading - this is not based on the movie at all. It may have been the start of what became the movie, but as it is, it's a yawn-enducing tome. Get the DVD instead when it comes out.

Frommer's Nashville and Memphis (Frommer′s Complete Guides)
Frommer's Nashville and Memphis (Frommer′s Complete Guides)
by Linda Romine
Edition: Paperback

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading and incorrect info, 4 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unnecessarily wordy and yet repetitive, as a lot of the same info is given more than once in different sections for both cities. Also (and a worse offence really) the hotel I stayed at in Memphis was grossly misplaced on all the Memphis maps in here, out by over 3 blocks which was very misleading when I was planning sightseeing around the Beale St. area, as I thought I had much further to go than I actually did.

This is the first, and last, Frommer's guide I will get; I only got it because there wasn't a Berlitz guide to either Nashville or Memphis available. Avoid like the plague unless you want to be told the wrong thing over and over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good ideas for inventive games, 24 Aug. 2015

Some great ideas for games which can easily lead into fun music lessons for younger children. You don't have to be an expert yourself.

The Handy London Map and Guide
The Handy London Map and Guide
by Bensons MapGuides
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and concise guide for many places of interest, 24 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really handy little guide for places of interest, bus routes and tubes for Central London. Includes star ratings and current entry prices, also helpful tips for minimising walking and keeping points on interest grouped in one area, etc. Concise and handy large pocket/small bag size, with more than enough info at least to pique your interest - you'd find out more when you actually go to the places anyway, or do some advance Googling for the more important things you want to visit. Recommended above many others.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong, on so many levels, 22 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Cilla: 1943 - 2015 (Paperback)
Why, why, why jump on the bandwagon purely to get an updated version out in time for her funeral, yet list the date of her tragic death WRONGLY as 2nd August?! Unforgivable, and just proves how keen some people are to rush in and cash in on someone...
As it is, this is a tad inaccurate in places and rather Blind-Date-heavy. You are much better off getting Cilla's own autobiography ("What's it all about") as coming from the lady herself, it will be far more authentic.

This review is from: Tell Me Tomorrow (Paperback)
Sorry Lynda, you weren't much of a novelist. Your heart-wrenching, searingly honest autobiographies were MUCH better.
