Finding Dory

Although it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone, it's much better if you remember what happened in "Finding Nemo". "Dory" is very much a sequel, heartwarming and fun, but it doesn't have the freshness and the humour of "Nemo".

A cool family film, and a tear-jerker for parents. Not a first-date movie, though.

Men, Women & Children - movie

Men, Women & Children is a weird movie. Extremely explicit. Too honest. Uncomfortable. Depressing and uplifting. A perfect commentary on today's life.

Shopaholic to the Rescue

Shopaholic to the Rescue is a continuation of Shopaholic to the Stars - it actually feels like one biggish book split into two. As usual, Becky is a bit exasperating and a lot of fun, and the ending gives you the lovely warm-and-fuzzy feeling.

I just wish Sophie Kinsella wrote more Madeleine Wickham books.
