Review for A Number by Caryl Churchill

Posted : 10 years, 11 months ago on 31 July 2006 12:47 (A review of Caryl Churchill (Routledge Modern and Contemporary Dramatists))

So I couldn't find an entry for 'A Number'...so I threw it in here. A play about cloning, with some angsty dialogue between a father and his son(s). Doesn't make for much excitement.

Is That It? by Bob Geldof

Posted : 10 years, 11 months ago on 31 July 2006 12:39 (A review of Is That It?)

One of the great rock autobiographies, Geldof's book is tenfolds more brilliant than the music he produced. An intelligent, interesting man who gives a new spin on his life of sex, drugs, rock'n'roll - and social justice. He's like Bono, but with a dick.

Hamlet by Shakespeare

Posted : 10 years, 11 months ago on 31 July 2006 12:35 (A review of Hamlet)

Shakespeare's finest moment? Possibly - one of the greatest tales of indecision and of the corruption of the family unit.

The Cider House Rules by John Irving

Posted : 10 years, 11 months ago on 31 July 2006 12:33 (A review of The Cider House Rules)

Outstanding piece of Liberalism, if anything it motivates you to get out of the working class. Well written, hilarious work - highly recommended.

The Handmaid's Tale by Atwood

Posted : 10 years, 11 months ago on 31 July 2006 12:30 (A review of The Handmaid's Tale)

Atwood, the Canadian bitch she is, decided it would be a provocative idea to create the feminist '1984'. A terrible read, pointless to the tee. Avoid this lauded shit-pie.

A Doll

Posted : 10 years, 11 months ago on 31 July 2006 12:27 (A review of A Doll's House (Dover Thrift))

The bitch can't pay back a loan. Who cares? I wish I hadn't studied this in school.

Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy

Posted : 10 years, 11 months ago on 31 July 2006 12:25 (A review of Jude the Obscure (Penguin Classics))

Times were hard for the Victorians, too. You don't have money, you can't go to school. Things haven't changed, have they? A good novel by one of English literature's leading realists.

1984

Posted : 10 years, 11 months ago on 31 July 2006 12:21 (A review of 1984)

The dystopian unmasterpiece everyone swears by. If you've only read what's been given to you in High School, this is your favorite, isn't it?

Siddhartha by Hesse

Posted : 10 years, 11 months ago on 31 July 2006 12:20 (A review of Siddhartha)

An enjoyable introduction to Buddhism. I would recommend reading this for pleasure over studying it in class - it's easy to destry while scrounging for meaning.

Velvet Goldmine

Posted : 10 years, 11 months ago on 30 July 2006 11:07 (A review of Velvet Goldmine)

Glam rock - as done by Christian Bale, Jason Rhys Meyers, and Ewan McGregor. The best part is the music - scenes of with Stooges, Lou Reed, and Eno tracks are done wonderfully. Note - Bowie hated the script so he vetoed the right for any of his music to appear in the film - maybe because 'Brian Slade', a sex and coke fiend, is pretty much based on Ziggy-era Bowie. Not that great of a story, but the acting is pretty solid (it's Bale, of course it's solid). Recommended to the sexually confused and / or Bowie fans.
