1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading, Jan. 27 2013
This review is from: The Testament of Mary (Hardcover)
I purchased this book thinking it would be an interesting angle to look at Jesus' death from his mother's point of view and that is what the write up about this book made it appear to be. I found this book to be one of the worst I have ever read (and I read a lot), The subject matter was rambling & not tied well together, It also did not live up to it's hype.
I would not recommend this book to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Downton Abbey Season 3, Jan. 4 2013
My daughter bought for me the UK version in the UK a month ago. To my surprise it will NOT work in North American DVD players because (to my surprise) DVDs are Region coded. North America is Region 1 & the UK edition is Region 2. So it cannot be played on my DVD player as (unbeknownst to me) it is coded only for Region 1 (bought in North America) DVDs. I was able to play this on my PC so all was not lost, but this was something I did not know.
Hope this Amazon.ca release is Coded for Region 1, but Beware...
Don't want anyone else getting stuck like me.
thanks
