Frommer's Edinburgh and the Best of Glasgow Day By&hellip by Barry Shelby
I just spent a week in Edinburgh and I relied on this book to plan my trip and navigate the city. It's full of useful information, as well as recommendations and clearly marked neighbourhood maps. I read it in advance and bookmarked the appropriate sections for my interests and it worked perfectly. Plus it's compact and fit easily in my purse. Remember that North American cell phones don't work there, so you won't be able to rely on your iPhone maps.

My only criticism would be that the maps often don't include smaller streets, so you may have to depend on landmarks and major intersections to be sure you're going the right way.

I am not a fan of horror, in general; especially since it's taken a complete detour from scary and tense to just slasher-porn. I like a horror movie that makes me laugh amongst the scares and doesn't take itself too seriously, and this movie was right up my alley. The closest thing to compare it to is obviously Evil Dead 2, but with less camp. The less you know going into it, the better, but I've seen it 3 times and I loved every minute of it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a well made film!, Aug. 29 2012
Ok, I admit it, I'm a giant fan of Joss Whedon, and I've enjoyed all of the Marvel super hero movies so far, so I absolutely have a bias for this movie. But, it really is as good as all the hype. It's funny and full of action, but also full of well-written storylines and character development. It takes a character like the Hulk, whose film adaptations to date have been terrible, and makes him one of the most endearing and interesting characters of the movie. Joss Whedon knows how to write real characters in unbelievably situations, that's what he does! And this is just the latest example to prove that he's one of the greatest writers working today.

And all those guys like Michael… Read more
