4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Kindle addition, 28 Dec 2010
I don't have the time to read a subscription but pick up the Monday edition for the football supplement. The Times always has good football coverage and whilst the Kindle edition could be improved further it is definitely one of the better efforts so far. If you are travelling regularly this should be a well considered option for your paper delivery and the subscription price is certainly great value if you have the time to read it only half of the days!

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for Business Leaders, 28 Dec 2010
I think this is great value. The Kindle version reads better than Bloomberg Business Week (to name one similar title which has just come to the UK Kindle store) and the price is excellent - the print version is a lot more expensive than this and you can cancel whenever you want to (whereas the print version still costs more than double this price on an annual subscription basis). The content is great and anyone with an interest in management, business process and corporate excellence etc. would do well to read HBR at least once in a while... And at this great price you can just dip in and out whenever you have the chance!

5.0 out of 5 stars A very rewarding experience, 30 Jan 2005
This review is from: Eureka [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
Let the arty pretentious element of you emerge by watching this film and telling your friends how great it is. They'll think "hmm yeah, four hours? and sepia? no thanks!" but if you get one of them to watch it they'll thank you forever. This film is incredible. It's slow moving and pretty eventless but the film is about emotion and character development and not direct action. This is a film where what does'nt take place and what is not said is as important as what does happen. It'll make you think and it'll make you love life. Eureka is one great adventure. Describing the plot or telling you how great the acting is pointless, thats all you need to know is that it's probably one of the most beautiful films ever made. Intense, absorbing and infinitely inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing, 21 Jun 2001
Snow patrol were the first band I saw live this year and quite frankly the blew me away. I had heard of the band before, but I had never heard their actual music. Gary Lightbody (their singer) really motivated the crowd to really get into the music and after the gig I could`nt help but buy this album..
The first couple of listens to this album will seem slightly dissapointing, but dont fret this album will definitely grow on you and even the more inaccessible tracks such as "firelight" and "batten down the hatch" will eventually be adored.
This album is made one hundred percent better by the inclusion of the lyrics on inside sleeve. It is often hard to make out what Lightbody says and once you can truly fathom the lyrics then the songs take on a whole new dimension.
Lighbody sings predominantly about his lost/forbidden loves, this is obvious is in the stupendously good "olive grove" and "one night is not enough". As far as song themes go, the nihilistic "lone gunmen" is also very interesting (lets just hope it isnt true).
The bass riffs in Snow Patrol`s music are very original for this style of music, but the CD version of these riffs do not do them justice as live the bass playing is one of the things that really grabs your attention.
Mr Quinn their drummer is quite good too.
