  1. The Last Film You Saw

    The Secret Life of Bees - I loved it. I think they did a good adaptation from the book.
  2. The Last Film You Saw

    I think I heard that she did a lot of her own stunts. I doubt she did the moving car one though, and to be honest a lot of the others seemed far too dangerous.
  3. The Last Film You Saw

    The Sorceror's Apprentice - brilliant!
  4. I'm impressed by your skill was it a very big mug, a very small book, or a combination of factors? I was reading in bed at the time and had the mug in one hand and the book in the other, and it just sort of fell into it It was a normal sized paperback, but I can't recall the size of the mug.
  5. I once dropped a book in a mug of hot chocolate. There was a brown stain all over one corner - I was gutted!
  6. The Last Film You Saw

    I saw Salt on Saturday. I enjoyed it but no woman could live through all that she did! Clever idea though.
  7. Has anyone read...?

    I've read it and I thought it was a lovely read. It wasn't as twee as I thought it was going to be.
  8. I've finished The Secret Intensity of Everyday Life by William Nicholson - an excellent 'slice of life' story. Now reading Blue Lightning, the final book in the Shetland quartet by Ann Cleeves.
  9. I'm very excited about this. I love the books, and I love Jason Isaacs.
  10. I'm reading The Secret Intensity of Everyday Life by William Nicholson. It's set in a Suffolk village over the course of six days, and it about all its inhabitants.
  11. One of those negative reviews is mine, I'm afraid. It was just too twee for my liking. Great review though, and I'm glad you liked it.
  12. Another new person - a dave this time :-)

    I don't think they'd mind at all - it's not one forum or the other and a few of us use both forums. Hi Dave, fancy seeing you here
  13. The Last Film You Saw

    Yeah, brilliant! I love the bit where he throws his boss out of the restaurant and is pretending to do the gangster thing.
  14. The Last Film You Saw

    This week I have seen Inception at the cinema and loved it, and watched Doubt and Mickey Blue Eyes on DVD. Doubt is very good and really does leave you with a lot of doubt in your mind. I've seen Mickey Blue Eyes loads of times before, but it still makes me laugh.
  15. I've now finished The Mother's Tale by Camilla Noli. It's certainly shocking, but I found it a riveting read. I'm now reading Grace Williams Says It Loud by Emma Henderson, which looks to be an intriguing read already.
