It was an OK film (Benedict Cumberbatch was brilliant) but I can’t help thinking the book might be better.

I first came across Testament of Youth when it was made into a television series starring Cheryl Campbell in the 1970s - much better than the recent film. When I subsequently read the book it affected very much and I wen…

I read this a while ago and really enjoyed it. It's not at all morbid but I was a bit unsure about the sausages ! I passed my copy on to another bookcrosser. BCID: 486-11383357

I'm halfway through Janis Ian's autobiography. Apart from being wonderfully well written there are two major things going for it - it is narrated by the author herself (always a bonus) and you get to hear snatches of Jan…

I recently finished listening to 'Caleb's Crossing'. I thought it was quite slow and was unsure about the narrator - she seemed to be using a Puritan New England accent which fits in with the story but was slightly awkwa…

That was one of my favourite books ever as well. In fact, Larry McMurtry is one of my favourite authors. I loved 'Buffalo Girls' and 'Anything for Billy'. The first one based on Calamity Jane and the second on Billy the …

Really enjoying listening to this account by Paula Mclain of Ernest Hemingway's time in Paris as seen through the eyes of his wife Hadley. It fits in very well with Hemingway's own writings in 'A Moveable Feast' which wa…

I am currently reading the book. It is seriously weird and in some ways quite frightening. I was put off seeing the film because of the reviews but now I'm quite keen to watch it. When I've finished the book I will be se…

I saw the film recently and quite enjoyed. I expect the book is better as they usually are but if you are looking for some light-hearted entertainment you could do worse.
