Chicago author D.D. Marx, having graduated with a degree in Communication from the University of Dayton, as well as participating in the Second Town program in Chicago, makes a sparkling debut with a contemporary romance that falls into that very famous category of chick lit - a respected category that usually spells quick sales for those who want an engrossing read that deals with major problems of interpersonal relationships and resolve them in a manner that makes the reader restore faith in contemporary interconnectedness. Of note, she bases her story on the real-life tragedy of one of her best friends: all she ever wanted was the power to visit with him one latest time. She dove into a globe imagining that he really never left. This is the inspiration that catapulted her into her debut project titled, The Beyond Series, of which BEYOND BELIEVING is the first volume of this the tone of being a hopeless romantic D.D. Marx regards this book as her "love letter to friendship," written in memory of her best friend, Dan - whose name coincidentally (!) is an necessary feature of this book. There is a very fine graphic on the cover - a locket, with a missing element, that reads `He who holds the key can unblock my heart'. Some stories about love and loss and recovery can become maudlin in the hands of authors less innately optimistic than D.D. Marx, and the manner in which she writes is so conversationally that it feels as if you are the only person with whom she is sharing this story allows her that required element of humor that keeps the ship afloat. She has the goodwill to begin her book with a Prologue that explains her mian character's past and her personality traits and development: `My name is Olivia Henry, and I am addicted to friendship!',and with that opener we learn about all of her mates and her transition move from Fresh Jersey to Chicago.But to the plot: When Olivia gets news of her best mate Dan's fatal vehicle accident, her life is shattered. Consumed with grief and struggling to search any meaning or purpose to life, she trudges along with a gaping void in her heart. Finally, when her frustration reaches its peak, Olivia decides to place her trust in the depth of friendship the two of them shared. That trust finally allows him to breakthrough to her, and Dan begins to tutorial Olivia through the twists and turns of her life, leading to something fresh and entirely unexpected. When Olivia exposes a large internal scandal at work, her career implodes. With no job and nowhere to turn, she escapes to Palm Springs for the sympathy and care of her beloved cousin, Garrett. However, with only weeks left before the opening of his newest store, "Gin and Tonic," Garrett isn't quite the comfort Olivia had expected. She yet again tries to search her way, and in the process meets Finn McDaniels who begins to fill that void in her heart. She's never before experienced a love like this; it heals her soul and rekindles her spirit - and just may have been the design of her dearly departed mate all along. Two bruised souls (Finn lost his wife) connect and together walk the tightrope back into the life of the , chick lit, yes - in the finest sense - but for everyone who feels the reality of honest feelings is somehow missing in this age of the Ethernet, this very fast read is a warmly reassuring reminder that resilience and the hand of another can mend wounds well. Nice work, DD Marx. Grady Harp, April 15
As I've said in a lot of reviews in the past, I have never been one for overly sentimental or romantic novels, but this one was pitched to me by my wife as inspirational, heart-warming, and thought-provoking, rather than sappy. I think she oversold its profundity to a certain degree, but I have to admit, this was a very enjoyable and heartfelt book that demonstrated Marx's sympathetic and gentle skills as a writer. We have all lost someone or something that we cherished, and a lot of of us have had to create fresh starts following those challenging times in our lives. Each story of recovery and resolve that we hear makes us stronger and more able to tackle the next unexpected change in our lives, and I think that Marx has created a strong story that could support countless people overcome their difficulties in a lot of walks of iendship is such a strong and essential element of our lives, and one that is often overlooked in our desires for partners, spouses, and sex. Friendship is precious and unique, and the marvelous writing in this book demonstrated that Marx not only understands the permanent bond between real companions, but also knows how to express those complex human emotions so any reader can have fun and benefit from them.
If you're looking for light reading, I wouldn't recommend this book, because it is far from casual summer fare. This is a beautifully written and executed novel about the power of friendship, the resilience of the human spirit, and the common trials that could face any of us in the blink of an eye. The idea of losing everything is frightening to all of us, surely, but even losing one part of our valuable lives can be destructive and painful. The method that Marx depicts the emotional toll of losing a best mate created me think of those closest to me, and reminded me how valuable our relationships are to our very sense of being. Marx followed up a tragic opening with a thoughtful and contemplative journey towards healing, something for which a set of guidelines doesn't exist. It was unbelievable to obtain that tip from a profoundly wise and insightful author. The level of compassion and depth of understanding of loss, resolve, and re-birth were impressive, to say the least. This is the sort of book that will stay with you, reminding you of the necessary things in life for a long time after finishing the latest page. Unbelievable prose.
Kindled this one for vacation. Enjoyed the characters, the story, and the distant relationships with one degree of separation and social connections. Highly recommend this entertaining read with fast moving story lines and humorous points of view told in first person by each of the main characters. Looking forward to the next two in the series.
This book was beyond awesome. It is a fast read with so a lot of "warm and fuzzy" moments. I feel like Olivia could be any of us, so simple to identify with. I can also identify with loss and thus Olivia's character. I am so excited that this is a trilogy- I will be reading all!This is a excellent book for book clubs... fast and simple read, delightful, and heart-warming! D.D. Marx has beautifully turned her loss into something positive and uplifting!
Amazing work D.d. Marx!! Beyond Believing pulled me in, and I felt as though I was right there with Olivia & Finn - such fun & genuine characters - I wish to hang out with them! Can't wait to dig into the second book in the series to see what is next up for them!
Could NOT place down Beyond Believing...I recommend everyone read this book! rx, intertwines the drama with humor. I was hysterically laughing in some parts of this novel. There was sadness, as well, but with the tragedies, one finds hope and love. It's an simple fast read and the first book of a trilogy...book 2 and 3, Beyond Love and Beyond Forever. I can't wait...a must buy!
Somehow I always seem to pick up a book then lose interest. I must have 15+ half finished books next to my bed. That certainly wasn't the case here, I couldn't place this book down! It was fun, simple to read and sweet. It's the excellent book to obtain your mind off the stress of true life. Can't wait for the next 2!
Having read Beyond Believing, I'm totally sucked in to the story of Finn and Olivia. I love all the creativity and plot twists from DD Marx. Once again, it's a fast and enjoyable read. Some suspense, and plenty of the humor I loved so much in the first book. Can't wait to follow this couple into the next book!
This series just gets better and better - as I finished Beyond Love - I frantically downloaded the next book, Beyond Forever, as I just wanted to continue Olivia & Finn's story. My tip is to buy this book AND the third book - you will fly through this, and will be hungry for more!
Thank goodness this book wasn’t as depressing as the first. That being said, I think the best method to describe Olivia is self-sabotaging. I could not believe how a lot of situations she gets herself into that could have been at least somewhat avoided by just making a decision for herself. She relies completely on Dan, her deceased friend. Songs on the radio, a certain kind of shoe. And then, to top it off, she has this secret that she hasn’t told Finn and who does she listen to for advice? Her annoying, obnoxious, know-it-all cousin Garrett. Hide it, he says. It’s in the past. Yea, because that one wasn’t going to backfire! As a writer, I understand that you need drama to make a amazing story. Olivia, you create it too easy!As with the first book, I enjoyed Finn’s character. Definitely one I would like to hear in audiobook form. He’s Scottish (and sounds totally hot!) but I did feel like I was missing part of his personality that just got lost in translation. This is a book that would definitely benefit from audio 🙂 And, as someone who has a culinary background, I really enjoyed seeing Finn in his element. It was so nice to see a celebrity chef who wasn’t changed by his fame. Finn, in his essence, is still a beautiful normal person.Olivia and Finn as a couple (see, this is why I told you to go read the first book before reading my review – that’s what we call a spoiler!). I think they were a amazing match. They complement each other well and I do think they handle each other’s quirks in a method that feels natural, not like lazy writing. Oh, and there are some quirks . . .I did have a couple problems with this book – the first was that Amazon classifies it as Christian Fiction. That doesn’t seem right to me because through the entire series so far, everything that happens in their lives is attributed to Dan (and later, to Christine – yes, another spoiler. Seriously, go read the first book!). Dan controls the weather for unique events, Dan saves the sick small boy. They seem to pray to Dan. That, I struggled with. I think Olivia’s relationship with her best mate is sweet, touching, endearing. But, I do think it gets taken a small too far if it’s going to be classified as Christian Fiction. More like Dan sue #2 – abrupt endings to scenes. This happened a few times for me and I’d be reading along thinking okay, this is getting interesting. I wonder what’s going to happen next? And all of the sudden, it’s days or weeks later and it’s some completely various scene. I’m sitting there scratching my head, wondering if my Kindle deleted a few pages?The pacing (other than the abruptness in places) worked well, keeping me from feeling like I struggled through the book. I really enjoyed the dual perspectives, as well. It added an additional element to the book, being able to see things from both sides. Especially when Olivia’s all mopey and Finn swoops in and makes it all better (yea, you’re not getting any more info than that). Very cute scene, by the way! I loved how Finn pulled off that very epic scene!Will I continue the series? Yes. With the method things were left at the end of this one, I am definitely intrigued to see how it all wraps up and to see if D.D. Marx can tie up all the loose ends 🙂
Olivia relies on talking to her dead best friend, Dan, & Finn Talks with his departed wife, Christine, to obtain them trough several situations in this portion of the series.Olivia has had to go back to Chicago to sell her condo there, in order to pursue her fresh romance with Finn. While she is gone joyous & tragic happenings occur. One brought Finn out to surprise her before traveling to Scotland to take care of matters there and in Paris. Olivia is devastated when she learns of Finn's possible death, blaming herself...If he hadn't have stopped to help her, he would not have been on that plane!There are several "up and down" occurrences in this second book which will hold the reader on the "edge of his/her seat". Will yet another love fade into the next life? How will Finn ever understand and forgive her?The reader will experience joy and sorrow along with Finn and Olivia and their loved ones in this will leave the reader eager for the final sequel to learn if Finn and Olivia will be a figment of the past, or if they will be blessed with a Forever after. The charcters continue to come to life and the situations are felt by the e Book Cover and Title are a Amazing Fit. I enjoyed this sequel more than the first. It no longer resembled another story U have read which gave it the added suspense . **Reader BEWARE: There are some sexual situations and crude dialogue in this book. I offer a Four & a Half Stars rating for this book*This book was gifted me with no requirement for a positive review. This is my honest Review.
Beyond Love follows the previous book, Beyond Believing (in which Olivia loses her best friend, Dan, in an accident and later meets the dashing Finn McDaniels, and embarks on a journey to finding love and herself along the way). Olivia's hero has grown since the latest book. Finn is simply divine. Who wouldn't fall in love with him?This second book in the Beyond trilogy was so wonderful. It has its moments, but D.D. Marx did a amazing job to continue momentum of the first book and bring out more for the growth of the story. Olivia is receiving tip from Dan, who is now beyond and as she grows more fond of Finn, (through distance, mind you) she realizes she might have to be more honest with him about her past. Which is not simple thing to do, when it's a secret she's been holding l in all, this series is getting really amazing and I cannot wait to obtain into the final book!MY RATING: 4.5 OF 5 STARS.DISCLAIMER: I RECEIVED AN ARC OF A BOOK IN PARTICIPATION OF A TOUR. THIS REVIEW REMAINS UNBIASED AND CONTAINS MY HONEST THOUGHTS.
Not a stand alone. Book 1 is a amazing read and definitely a pre-read to Beyond e characters Olivia and Finn move forward in their romance from book 1. Olivia still is seeking advise/help from her mate Dan's who is in the 'here after'.As the Olivia and Finn struggle to hold the relationship powerful and struggle through the storms the reader is kept captivated andready to applaud at the ese are like able characters that tend to worm their method into your heart and hold you interested.I am looking forward to a large satisfied ending with book 3.I am wondering a small if the satisfied ending is really coming!I enjoyed Beyond Love and am patiently waiting for a possibility to read book is review will appear on retail websites and Amazing Reads.I received a complimentary copy from I Read Book Tours.
Beyond Love is the second book from the Beyond Series. Just like the first book of the series, Beyond Love gives you goose bumps. This book never stops giving me the chill. It is eerie but oh so good.I love the wedding scenes. The view is just so beautiful.I am sure that I will loved it in person as I love living in the country side. Love that is second possibility is must better especially when your mates from beyond is there to support you with your life and your is book is beyond unbelievable. I loved every moment I spent reading this book. There are scenes that happened recently and reading it is a small scary.I cannot wait to read the 3rd book of the series. Tragedy happened but if you surround yourselves with family and friends, in no time your life would be amazing.
Picking up right where Beyond Believing left off, Beyond Love is a story of over coming obstacles and letting real love when I was reading the series, I accidentally read them out of order. When I picked up Beyond Love, I already knew what was going to happen to Olivia and Finn. While I still enjoyed the book, I probably would have enjoyed it more not knowing what was going to e Beyond series is a set of fun, heartwarming books that are simple to read. If you wish a series that proves real love does exist, with well-liked characters, I highly recommend!
This survey book reminded me of intro college courses. It's thoroughly researched, gives the impression of having been peer reviewed and the writing is clear as a bell. The book wisely uses textbook features including headings; sidebars; labeled diagrams; charts and graphs; resources, notes and huge index; and e history of this surprisingly (to me) huge knowledge domain is presented in the most succinct and straightforward manner. But it's method to long to have been a mere essay, and hence we have the first justification for getting the book rather than picking up info piecemeal. That's also where we obtain definitions of terms. The authors explain why and how some terms mean various things to various people. The entertaining stories presented for how each of these understandings came into being served to obtain them into my the text discusses returns on bitcoin and inclusion of cryptoassets in a financial portfolio. It's mind-boggling, but everybody has to see this for themselves. It's difficult to imagine how anybody can believe it without going through the process, this textbook. Is what happened so far just the hint of an iceberg? People with relevant experience in this field exist, and they seem to think ere is plenty of technical analysis. This contains ratios, volatility, volume and liquidity. There is fundamental analysis. The question is posed, "what issue does it solve." There is investigation into the players, including the miners, and also the different cryptoassets of which bitcoin is the huge one. It's all part of the due diligence that would precede and investment.Other subjects are covered including the a lot of ways one could invest and tax conclusion:I think this is a timely book by responsible and highly literate authors.
First allow me say that this is showing as a Free Vine Review. Although that is the case, I had it on pre-order before it was available on Vine, so I would have had it either way. Picture of pre-order included.When it comes to books about bitcoin, blockchain, and cryptoassets, the are as a lot of books out as ICO’s and sadly they have the same depth and value, none. I am satisfied to be able to say this book is not one of them. This book has depth as well as ere are several aspects I like about this book that I am going to write about in no particular order, because I like them all rst I will mention the writing style. The authors have an simple to read writing style that makes the book an enjoyable read.I love all the history in it. The book does a amazing job of covering the evolution of cryptoassets. They cover the good, bad, and ugly of bitcoin’s history and bring us into the show globe of decentralized e authors break cryptoassets into cryptocurrencies, cryptocommodities, and cryptotokens. They cover each one in detail and give a lot of examples of each in existence today. The examples contain bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple, Dogecoin, Dash, Monero, Zcash, Ethereum, Auger, dApps in general.I like that the author’s are not cryptozealots. They paint a realistic picture of the landscape and give fair warning to those that may embark on a ride of the cryptoasset roller e authors provide an analysis and valuation framework that lays out the elements to look for and analyze when deciding on weather or not an investment would be worth it. Their framework not only does a amazing job of listing all the elements, but they also do a amazing job of putting them into context, explaining their role, and what to look for.Another thing I have spent hours in is all the notes. They have a ton of amazing references. These totally sidetracked me several times.When I read a book I tag the outside with things I wish fast access to or wish to remember. I have added 2 pictures to the review to present you there is a lot of things you’ll wish to recall as you go through your journey.If you are thinking about investing in cryptoassets, this book is a must read.
This investor's tutorial gives a beautiful thorough overview of the attractiveness and drawbacks of Crypto-currencies as a financial ivestment at least as thorough a picture of the trade-offs of this shop and its technical (financial) analysis as can be drawn at this point in time. Two drawbacks of this volume depending on how narrowly the reader is looking for an investment tutorial to these currencies and their derivative instruments are in the app and investment analysis of blockchain applications beyond currency, and in the technical (computational explanation and beauty of the underlying mathematical and cryptographic phenomena and its source of value in computational work. Since explanations of the underlying computational technology can be found elsewhere (including Wikipedia), the lacuna which might be especially necessary to investors is the wide app of blockchain technology in such non-currency applications, as real-estate, insurance, government and intellectual property. As huge a firm as IBM and the huge accounting firms are betting a substantial portion of their consulting expertise in providing knowledge of "Blockchain beyond Bitcoin" (and beyond currency) and serious investors should consider these applications as well.
“Bitcoin is stupid. It’s fake cash created up by your Silicon Valley friends.” That’s from an argument I had with someone who asked me about bitcoin when bitcoin was below $1000. These days, I’d just hand over a copy of this book.Whether you’re a traditional investor, a non-investor who’s interested in bitcoin, or an experienced financial professional who isn’t yet familiar with cryptocurrency, read “Cryptoassets: The Innovative Investor’s Guide.” It’s not only for investors—it’s for anyone who wants to learn more about cryptocurrency and ris Berniske and Jack Tatar do an perfect job telling the story behind a lot of cryptocurrencies. They discuss blockchain, portfolio management, “ICOs”, and emerging tax and securities regulation.“If you miss a day in crypto it’s like missing a year,” people in the crypto zone say. That’s why it’s so challenging to write a book about blockchain and cryptocurrency. Berniske and Tatar have succeeded in creating something valuable.“Chris and Jack’s Go-To Crypto Resources,” chapter at the end of “Cryptoassets” compiles news, education sites, and trader tools you can use to hold up to date after you finish the book.If you’ve been in crypto for a while, this may be a review. If you’re new, you’ll gain valuable insight into investing in this space, which is very much the “Wild West.” You’ll learn to spot quality cryptoassets, recognize hype and avoid fraud, and responsibly balance your investment portfolio with this emerging asset class.Whether you’re an investor in cryptocurrency or not, chances are it’ll be disrupting a vertical near you. A lot of traditional investors have rejected cryptoassets. Berniske and Tatar create the argument that you should not.
I was initially place off by statements to the result that this was the first book of its' kind, having read at least 3 books on bitcoin, and been aware of it for close to 10 years. (That's because I have tecchie kids, one of whom had a mate at MIT). and so, from early on, I had a small miner in my is real that the focus of this book is various from the others I have read, as is the breadth. They cover not just the history of and technology behind bitcoin but delve into several other cryptocurrencies, most of which I knew small of. While the premise of the book is investing, I am still not sure that I personally have enough confidence to treat it as a serious investment. It is not that I do not trust the technology. I have heard a amazing deal about it from my son, who is currently a programming major at cal tech. He has been following it for quite a while and understands it better than most. (and, I do have to say that if you are looking for an explanation of the technology, there are other books which do it better). My problem with bitcoin, and most of the other cryptocurrencies is that I do not really understand or accept the basis of their value. With one or two noteable exceptions, I do not accept that there is a base value. Yes, it is secure, verifiable, not tied to a central bank and carries with it privacy, whatever base value there is maintained in part by programmed scarcity. At the end of the day though, it is still a currency which someone created up with nothing of value behind it. Another book which I read on bitcoin a while back pointed to the dollar having gone off the gold standard but it is still backed by the US treasury. There has already been at least one incident (probably more) where a hacking resulted in millions of dollars just disappearing. That is my private reaction, and others may well feel differently. I am also not sure how the irs is going to deal with a currency which allows people to hide transactions. My private feeling aside, the book is useful in that it discusses several cybercurrencies which operate in slightly various ways and have various levels of acceptance. Whether or not you intend to invest in one or more of them, knowledge and understanding are useful.I can not say how current this is or how thoroughly ir covers the field. I was aware of some of them and have a primary understanding of blockchain technology. That's a far cry from saying that I am on top of the field, but it is one I have an interest in understanding, and this book has expanded my knowledge and understanding of several cryptocurrencies. All of them? I really do not know. It is clearly a rapidly evolving zone and it may well be that even as I type another currency is being released into the market. (I ought to mention that they provide pointers to useful websites which support gauge value, not as clearly as spot gold, but if you feel like you are at sea, it is a small bit of a landing pad.)The language is clear and if not jargon-free, the jargon is explained. I believe that anyone who wants a better understanding of this zone could pick this book up and learn a amazing deal. How instructive it would be for those more knowledgable... I will have to wait until my son is home for christmas break to search that out.
First a little disclaimer...I missed the tag when it comes to Bitcoin. Over the years I've taken pride in being able to identify "the next huge thing". Early in my graduate studies I took on my chair who believed the internet to be a "passing fad". I was one of the first in my field to work in the "dot com" era and opt for start-ups. I invested in true estate long before anyone thought of a bubble. You obtain the idea. I actually heard about Bitcoin beautiful early on and thought it was the most absurd thing I ever encountered. I simply did not "get it". When it took an early nose-dive, I thought that would be the end of what was surely a stupid experiment to start with. Once it came back to life I attributed it to the novelty of the experiment. Over and over and over I didn't bother with it and yes...I regret it now.I thank the author for admitting to a related mindset...it is both refreshing and perhaps even more relevant since there are likely others in the same boat. The book itself is informative - not only about the history and working of cryptoassets (vs currency) but also the blockchain technology and implications for the future of things far outside the current use. Bitcoin is certainly the most well known but the author dives into numerous others - some of which you may have never heard about - and even beyond the cryptocurrency to contain other asset types. It tackles a few questions I've had along the method - including how much confidentiality users really have, transparency, portability etc... Threats from some external forces as well as internal ones are also included. Overall a clear, comprehensive and relevant overview although as the author openly admits, one of the issues in writing about this subject is the speed in which things change. Still a super beginning for those - like myself - finding themselves behind the curve on this ever so rapidly changing field.
I am on Chapter 6 of the book as I write this but felt compelled to write a review before I finished the entire book. This is an perfect book for almost all audiences. If you are a pro working in the industry and doing due diligence on fresh offerings as part of your everyday work, perhaps this book is not sophisticated enough. For all other readers, this book is exactly what you're looking for. The footnotes and references alone are worth multiples of what this book is selling for.
This is a structured and comprehensive look at bitcoins and its peer cryptoassets. The book lays out the genesis of the technology, the implications for financial industry, and without necessarily agreeing or disagreeing mightily with the underlying premises Burniske provides a detailed look at the core aspects of investing in this asset class. Along the way, there are some interesting insights on asset classes and wrappers and how diversification needs to be better understood. For those brave enough to take the risk and diligent enough to understand the technology and implications, this is clearly the book to begin with. While at times the narration seems dense (more a reflection of the technology), overall, a reader familiar with core investment frameworks and technological innovations will be well-served by this book.
I am relatively fresh to this phenomenon and a small intimidated by the blizzard of news and forecasts about Bitcoin and its cousins. This book was extremely useful and helpful. I bought it on the heels of the Harry Markowitz rave; it's nice to have a Nobel Laureate on your shoulder. I would recommend this to potential investors, casual business news readers, and folks looking for a strong, fundamental tutorial to burgeoning phenomenon.
Perfect discussion of Crypto Assets. The author has done an formidable job of considering a wide dozens of factors driving the value and the activity around crypto assets. Well written and timely publication.
The late (and truly great) Roger Ebert may have judged the Italian-American horror epic Beyond the Door as being 'scary trash', but I personally LOVED it. The Ovidio G. Assonitis and Robert Barrett co-directed classic is scary as hell ... My kind of independent horror flick. I remember it so well, as my godmother had taken my brother and me to see it at the Chicago Theater back in 1976. And it clung to my psyche - method after we'd left the theater; even into the next day. It's a amazing cult horror, what Beyond the Door. And a must-see for any horror fanatic who has yet to. Go buy yourself a slinky after you watch Beyond the Door ... If you dare. 😂
I like poodles! Beyond This Put (AKA: Web of Evidence) is directed by Jack Cardiff and adapted to screenplay by Ken Taylor from the A.J. Cronin novel. It stars Van Johnson, Vera Miles, Emlyn Williams, Bernard Lee and Jean Kent. Melody is by Douglas Gamley and cinematography by Wilkie Cooper. Paul Mathry (Johnson) was evacuated from Liverpool to America during WWII. Twenty years later he is back in Liverpool believing his father had died a character during the conflict. The reality is that his father, Patrick (Lee), has been serving a prison sentence for the murder of his pregnant mistress. But something doesn't seem right about the trial, so Paul does a small digging... Not a amazing deal to obtain excited about here, it's a routine mystery - cum - thriller, that is based in Liverpool (not London as some reviewers elsewhere seem to think) but drafts in two American name actors to supposedly perk things up. It never really gets off the ground for dramatic impact, sending Johnson on a mission of truth and justice without ever really putting him in jeopardy. While his relationship with Miles' troubled Lena Anderson is a subplot of no consequence, as is her back story which is sad but isn't given any dramatic heft. On the plus side is oodles of noirish atmosphere, different camera workings of substance and stage staging that lift proceedings. Night scenes are suitably cloaked with an air of unease, be it blinking pelican lights or spinning shadow lamps, Cardiff and Cooper obtain the most out of the meagre budget. Other sequences see a shot through distorted glass and one perfect one that has Kent framed in striped surroundings - while she is wearing a leopard skin coat, the contrast of which suits her hero perfectly. Value here for noir visualists, but instantly forgettable once the berserker finale has played itself out. 6/10 Tidbid: James Bond fans will note that it sees Lee and Geoffrey Keen together, they both would later feature in a number of Bond movies.
I don't think telling you what I think can be printed. For Pete's sake Widex obtain on the ball. This application doesn't work on Samsung Galaxy Note 5. It works on my Samsung phone and that's it. Granted, it does say it isn't optimized for my device but that's not an excuse for not doing the job correctly if you're selling a $5,000 device. Had I known that it was that limited I would have looked for another set of hearing aids.
The lack of streaming help for android device devices is unforgivable for a $5000.00 device. Or at any price android device platform accts for more than 1/2 devices on planet. Pandering to technology partners at the expense of paying customers is a sign of a trend voters want to change
Hi Folks, I just bought Blackberry Keyone that has Andriod 7.0.1. Looks like it can't pair with hearing aids? I have Widex Beyond 330. Won't this work with Blackberry's based on Andriod? It's frustrating. Please support or give suggestions. I have been recently using iPhone6 which was amazing but I wish to move on to Andriod on Blackberry and would expect to work as they say it's complatible with Android.
This is a amazing application IN THEORY. I have a Galaxy Note 8, a phone that has been out for over a year, and the application is not yet compatible with my phone. I don't obtain it...it's only compatible with up to a Note 5? That's severely outdated tech! It's over 4 years old!!
You need the iPhone if you wish to stream your hearing aids to listen to music or respond phone calls directly to you ear. Does Apple have exclusive rights to this? Then you need to tell the public about it. I'm able to adjust sounds on the hearing aid so this application is no amazing to use through the BlueTooth.
So a year later, things have not improved at all. The application will only sporadically connect to the hearing aids, and sometimes only one of them,. Constant restarts, and putting on airplane mode etc needed several times a day. Utterly useless , as is Widex Support. They do not answer to direct messages on their www service either. Will go somewhere else for my next hearing aids.
I really don't see the point of this app. It does nothing the hearing aids can't do. Mind you, the hearing aids aren't as amazing as others in the same orice range. Voice echo and constant background noise. Application is useless bloatware and aids will be returned.
Limited usefulness The Verge reported on 8/16/2018 that Google was working with a Danish hearing aid manufacturer to develop an application that will let streaming with Android. Google posted the fresh protocol specifications online for any manufacturer to use. Wonder if and when Widex will be developing a useful app.
Works perfectly with Samsung S6 active. All functions work as described. Stays connected well and re-establishes if either earpiece is blocked. I wear phone on my right hip. Looking forward to getting the com-dex for hands free calling. I like the 3-band equalizer. Only available with the app.
I have an android, and bought this model because the application and website said that it is FULLY supported. However, unless you are using an iPhone, you cannot connect bluetooth audio input at all. It's only a background connection for the prigrams, you need another separate transmitter to keep audio via blue tooth. I don't understand why this is not a universal feature. As other reviewers said, for $4500 a piece, they should at the very least be consistent across major platforms.
In my honest opinion, for a set of hearing aids to cost Aprox $3000 a piece, they should have the same features for both Apple and Android device products. Reliability and connectivity problems abound for Android. Although on the occasion when the application is working properly it is very handy to be able to adjust for various surroundings.
Extremely frustrating! Won't maintain Bluetooth connection from one day to the next. Have installed and uninstalled multiple times. Have stopped and started Bluetooth a number of times. Turned airplane mode on and off as instructed in connection guide. Nothing works! Worthless application for something that is supposed to be top of the line!
I can only use the universal program. Does not let me to change settings without amazing hassles and very time consuming. Not even possible to change setting while in a call. This is just a very expensive method to use hearing aids as ear buds. Can not turn volume up if the decices are in use. Can not ever use the directional focus
Doesn't do anything useful. I can change the program on my aids using the buttons. The only reason for having a Bluetooth connection for me would be to stream music. I cannot believe such an expensive piece of electronics does not have functionality that a $50 pair of Bluetooth headphones does.
This application is beautiful much useless for me. I can create adjustments on my hearing aids themselves. Not thrilled with the fact that I would have to spend another 300 plus dollars for an extra device to hang around my neck to be able to use my hearing aids for answering the phone or streaming melody because I have an android device and not an iphone.
Cannot locate hearing always have to test to reconnect and 98% of the time it is unsuccessful. I was told these hearing aids would also stream melody and phone conversations. They do not. Very disappointed in Widex Beyond. I would have gone with something else or not gotten hearing aids at all so I wouldn't have to hear myself @#$%!ing about these! Update: 12/13/2917 This application now doesn't work at all it won't open. I have deleted and reinstalled and still doesn't work very frustrating. I have severe tinnitus and cannot now control the sound that helps mask this. Makes the hearing aids almost useless to me!
These hearing aids obtain the job done but the Bluetooth compatibility is extremely frustrating. I cannot take my hearing aids on and off all day to use my Bluetooth piece. My rep (San Francisco Hearing and Speech Center) told me android device would become available. Its been over a year and nothing. The application is useful if you wish to adjust audio settings. I uninstalled it because I never use it. Please work to obtain Android device users Bluetooth compatibility. I believe $6,000+ is a high price to pay!
I have a Samsung 7 and have had the application installed for the past week and it's worked perfectly. This is my first pair of hearing aids so I have nothing to compare it to, but I can control volume or use one of the programmed settings built into the app.
