The Book Of Eli

The Book Of Eli

I had been looking forward to this film based on the previews: it appeared to be a solid western-ish action story focusing on a hardened traveler on a mission.  It definitely delivered. The Book Of Eli is the story of a traveler, Eli played by Denzel Washington, who is crossing the United States from East to West on foot.  It’s been thirty years since the “pulse” that seems to have destroyed everything and caused the sun to...

False Impression by Jeffrey Archer

False Impression by Jeffrey Archer

She uses her new status to...

Stalin’s Ghost by Martin Cruz Smith

Assegai by Wilbur Smith

Assegai by Wilbur Smith

I am a huge Wilbur Smith fan and my bias may come through here.  To sound impartial I will mention I didn’t get through his last book The Quest as it just couldn’t hold my attention. Assegai is the story of Leon Courtney, a young man who finds his place in life by way of the military, hunting, action, adventure and a war.  This is Smith’s usual mix for his historical fiction and to be honest it works so why try and change it. ...

Speaker Connectors

Speaker Connectors

I recently purchased a new TV ( Sony SXRD 60″, simply stunning ) and decided to redo the all the wiring in my home stereo. For the most part cables simply had to be rerun and tie wrapped for neatness, but the big problem was speaker wire. For a while I had wanted to get speaker connectors for my speaker wire ( or at least every time I had to connect them to the receiver ). You know the hassle: twist the wire so it stays together, try and...
