The Kings Speech

When films are tipped for an Oscar or any other prestigious acting award, I am usually cautious about wanting to see the film. I'm usually disappointed or just cannot understand what all the fuss is about regarding the film or the actors and actresses that have been nominated.

The Kings Speech so far have won lots of awards and is tipped to win multiple oscars very soon, so it was with caution that AJ and I watched the Kings Speech this evening.

I probably won't stop up to watch the Oscars, but I will be definitely switching on the early morning news to see if The Kings Speech is a winner this year

Overall it was an OK book.  Not my favourite book of all time, but very readable all the same.  As the first book I have read of hers I don't know if this is the usual ty…
