Victoria Beckham

August 13, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

VictoriaBeckhamSo, Victoria Beckham is to guest on American Idol – good for her.  It will be nice for her to get back into the limelight for a while as she’s been pretty quiet lately (or have my Beckham radar been turned off).

She said she doesn’t know if she’s nervous or excited, but having wanted to make it in America, she’ll probably be hoping people will like her.

Victoria’s probably in a good position to judge as she was part of a manufactured band herself and knows about auditions.  I’ve never felt she has a strong voice but that doesn’t mean she can’t judge others.

I just wish she’d put on some weight, she’s far too thin for my liking.

SupernovaMrHudsonftKanyeWesCurrently at number three in the charts, this is a great track.  His voice is pure and crisp to listen to ie you can actually make out what he’s singing.  Always good.

By all accounts Mr Hudson is a multi-talented singer/songwriter from Birmingham, England.   One up for the Brummies!

Back Spin by Harlan Coben

August 5, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

BackSpinHarlanCobenThis is the first book I’ve read by Harlan Coben and it certainly won’t be the last.

His style of writing is easy, humourous and to the point ie he describes what is necessary and doesn’t go over the top like some authors.

Back Spin is set around the world of golf with Chad, the son of Jack Coldren a ‘come back’ player,  going missing during his father’s most  important tournament – a tournament he lost 23 years ago and now looks set to win.

His mother Linda Coldren is also top of her game and more successful than her husband.

Myron Bolitar,  a sports agent is asked to look into the case due to his background and because the kidnapper demanded no police. Plus he is about to become Linda Coldren’s agent.

Chad was born and raised in luxury but has vanished on Philadelphia’s mean streets – last seen in a down-town sleazy hotel.   Crossing through the high society and the streets low life Myron  starts to realise what a dangerous game he’s caught up in.

This is a real page turner that you won’t be able to put down.

Other readers of this novel have this to say:

“This is definitely not one of Coben’s greatest work.”

“Please order all of Harlan Coben’s Myron Bolitar novels at once. Not only will you read about the world’s most honorable sports agent Myron Bolitar but you get a murder mystery to follow as well as some memorable characters to cheer for. The mysteries are excellently written, hilarious and fast-paced.”

“Harlan Coben continues to prove that he is one of the best thriller writers around at the moment. A page turner is a much used phrase but in this case it is really appropriate. The author’s books are always so well structured and his character’s well rounded.”

People say that money is not the key to happiness, but I always figured if you have enough money, you can have a key made.
