This version of the arrogance Industrial companies operate is só close to the bone. and it is still happening in many parts of the world. This is an excellent but very emotional display of how humans, fauna and flora are suffering due to ruthless money hunger of the Industry. It gives one an insight of how intertwined truth and lies are. Highly recommended especially to any family that have lost a loved one due to careless and blatant exposure - all in the name of production and profit.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Louise Brealey read a love story in letters, played out against the backdrop of the Second World War. 'Can you feel, as you read these words, that I am thinking of you now; aglow, alive, alert at the thought that you are in the same world, and by some strange chance loving me.' A small blue box opened in 2008 revealed a wartime world of love, longing and frustration. Inside were bundles and bundles of letters written neatly on thin blue airmail paper or headed army notepaper.

Easy listening and good storyline. Ejoyed the performance of the reader. Smooth and controlled voice, rather pleasing on the ear. I guess with books written in the first person, one really has to steer away from becoming too self-absorbed. Just felt too many sentences started with "I "

A compact and powerful guide to redirect basically everyday happenings to oneself. We are responsible for our actions but should also be accountable. The 4 agreements are exactly what we know we should be doing but the problem is we don't. I certainly think with relistening to this book over and over again, I will fall into the rhythm of life and live and love life,; the way it's meant to be

Enjoyed the first part of the story. Linda's roll a bit over the top- did not see her part as attorney believable. Since Anna's fake identity revealed the writer looses ground. Last part of the book not as spellbounding, definitely loosing ground.

I loved this book! Captivating and very inspiring. À story that takes one to the world of Elisa. Love and diversity, acceptance are the strings entwined to keep this story alive and so vibrant. I have not seen the film yet but I am sure I will love it.

Call Me by Your Name first swept across the world in 2007. It is the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blossoms between an adolescent boy and a summer guest at his parents' cliffside mansion on the Italian Riviera. During the restless summer weeks, unrelenting but buried currents of obsession, fascination, and desire intensify their passion as they test the charged ground between them and verge toward the one thing both already fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy.

it touches one in a way you hàve not enough words in your vocabulary, to describe the joy and pain of 2 people loving one another so deeply. it ìs tastefully done and allows one to wander into a world unknown to one itself. it is moving, it is tender and it is honest.

Very good performance and storyline. the writer is daring enough to write about life 's taboo topics. Eleanor keeps one interested and I love the fact that the author did not elaborate on her very traumatic childhood and kept all the gory detail part of Eleanor's selective memory loss. this contribute to the style and class of the book!

It will help NYPD detective Ben Bradley track him down.
