    I love cheese and a look in my fridge shows some Danish Blue, Cheddar, Wensleydale with cranberries and a cracked black pepper with Cheddar (I think). I finished off a lovely Camembert last night,...

    I loved it, and am not ashamed to say I shed a few tears. I agree that Natasha was probably better when mature. I still think there might have been more accomplished actresses out there to choose...

    I'm loving it too. One of the few down notes is Natasha. I don't get the appeal of the actress. I'm loving Paul Dano and pretty much the rest of the cast. Rebecca Front played a blinder in the first...

    I'm really liking it. However, the beeb has not served it well. It's been all over the place in the schedules. How on earth do they expect to gain a loyal audience when they can't give it a regular...

    I love Susan Hill, but The Woman in Black is the creepiest read ever... I read it a few Halloween's ago, and I always recommend it to others, who have loved it too, in a really pants-changing scary...

    This is nonsense. Like Kasie I thought I wouldn't engage anymore with this but it makes me so mad that such utter rubbish is allowed to pass for truth. So Shakespeare is supposed to be an expert in...

    I disagree with you about a few things here Mal. Byron was an infamous, even notorius figure of the movement, but you are playing down Wordsworth's role excessively. I agree he turned into an...

    Yes, I have, and it's excellent. I have also read Arthur and George and thought it was a shame it did not win the Booker too. It was a beautifully structured book based on a true story concerning...

    :confused5: It's the standard arrangement over here. I don't religiously follow it number by sub-number for my own stuff, but by subject, so topics are loosely grouped together.

    I love them both, but if I was pushed to only have to read one or the other, it would be Dickens. Prepare yourselves for an onslaught soon, as we will be celebrating the great man's bi-centenary, and...

    Just one word C***! That's a whopper of a lie, which is outrageous in its cheek. It seems to be founded on the (paraphrased) statement by Hitler (or was it Goebbels?) that if you're gonna tell a lie...
