  1. Leaving Neverland

    It does matter because even after his death he his a multi million industry. and business will defend that https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2019/mar/07/michael-jackson-estate-adverts-lawsuits-interviews-leaving-neverland-airs Just about to watch part 2.
  2. Leaving Neverland

    I thought the same hux. My only doubts are he is not alive to defend himself and should the art they create be tainted by what we think of the artist? Kipling was possibly a racist but great poems. Bowie no saint. Many artists in history have done what we now call wrong but they made great art. Not a fan of Michael Jackson but admire is work and must admit twitch to Billie Jean. Music or the man? Same seems to be happening with Kevin Stacey - made some great films/series but now deleted because of his actions. Moral question. Art or the artist.?
  3. The Fire Starters

    Released April 4th UK. Are you a lucky man Mr HG and getting a copy to review before release?
  4. Sorry Luna but I found the article misleading. Starts off with a statement about some people say we should read one book a day with a link to some unknown on you tube. Lengthy part on reading to be successful and speed reading. Goes on about reading faster is great but not enjoyable? Then at the end some common sense. Strange article. Just don;t get it?
  5. Very Long Books - Are they worth it?

    Thanks for that Viccie, have found a version taught in schools and with great reviews but without the masses of padding, Strange to be re starting nearly the same book.
  6. Very Long Books - Are they worth it?

    Like Mr HG says the size of the print matters alot on the size of a physical and even digital book. The bigger the font the more pages. The only way to judge the length of a book surely is on the word count? Whether they are worth it will be for you to decide . Here is a list of the longest books and having started Les Miserables and got to less than 10% after 2 weeks, wish that an abridged shortened version was available. A book with so many asides. historical background and to be honest not needed information, I have never read before. Will persevere. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_longest_novels
