5.0 out of 5 stars For this price this is AMAZING! No instructions but not difficult to work out, 15 Jun. 2015

For this price this is AMAZING! No instructions but not difficult to work out:
Slide off the handle. Open the housing. Place the two parts of the housing above and below your chain (the lower part of the chain). Close it securely and reattached the handle (this firmly holds it all together). Pour some de-greaser in the little cavity on the top until it's half full (it doesn't need much). Don't touch your pedals, just slide the machine along your chain (It will only slide one way). Pulling it back will rotate your freewheel ready for you to slide it along the next part of the chain. Continue to do it until your chain looks like new. Remove the machine and thoroughly rinse the chain with water.
Lubricate your chain well. All done!
If that's too complicated for you, buy an expensive one.

Interesting. I liked the characters and the basic premise of the story is well worth mulling over once you've finished.

I could write better myself. It reads like a poor quality TV movie. It's a poor quality story. Don't bother.

1.0 out of 5 stars You need to read something better than this!, 3 July 2014
This review is from: Winter Moon (Kindle Edition)
Unbelievably poor! This is the only Koontz book I've read and I couldn't be more surprised by how bad this book and this writing style is! Cliche upon cliche. - The 'evil' is coming. Oh no, the phones are dead! Lets get out of here. Oh no the cars won't start. And look, a giant snow storm is starting so we can't leave! - And pages and pages of (supposed) tension building with all the character opening doors and turning round to find..... guess what..... NOTHING behind them. Is this the best Koontz can do. Not an original idea on a single page.
Tiresome vague attempts to describe the indescribable with ineffective similies and repetitive (breathtakingly repetitive) and long winded reminders of the chracters former lives in 'cess pool' of LA. I got to the end with a feeling of relief. Relief that I won't ever read another one of these dreadful books.
A 12 year old could come up with a better story!

It's soft, so it's easy to get on and off the handset. It looks nice and feels nice and protects the phone really well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Massively disappointing, 21 April 2010
This movie does not deserve it's iconic status. Not even a bit.

The opening shot is simply lovely and Audrey is simply lovely throughout but that's it! There is an extra character in the movie who does not appear in the book and she is simply superfluous. AND just to ruin a decent story the ending is almost a reversal of that originally written in Capotes story.

I can't believe the rating this has received. It's so ordinary!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tiny and Impressive, 10 April 2010
I bought this (with little understanding of Bluetooth) in order to try to stream music from my PC to HiFi. It works a treat! Just pair-up the PC with a bluetooth receiver and as long as I switch on the receiver before running the media player on my PC, it plays via this bluetooth adapter and receiver instead of my PC speakers. So simple!

It also transmits all over the house and garden so I can also pair my PC with bluetooth headphones. excellent!

4.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary history that you should know about, 28 Mar. 2010
If you were around in the UK in the 70s you'll have heard of the Red Army Faction/Baader Meinhof Group from regular news bulletins on the BBC. But the effect on German life was never apparent from these snippets on UK news programmes that had their hands full with domestic terrorism in Northern Ireland.

While I heartily recommend you read Stephan Aust's book of the same name and upon which the film is based, it's not at all necessary (although I feel sure that once you see the film you'll want to know more anyway).

Buy this movie because it's a really well made film. The action cracks along and it never tries to moralise and the characters are played with sympathy and understanding. It in no way glorifies the terrorists' actions, although it does try to explain the positions of the various characters and organisations and what drove them to act as they did.

But perhaps the most arresting thing that comes from the movie is the fact that during a long period of their reign of terror, throughout the Federal Republic of Germany, the Badder Meinhof Group enjoyed significant popular support. There are many of reasons for this that I wouldn't try to explain here but watch the movie and see what you think.

Great film with a couple of excellent extras (especially the one on the making of the movie and the film-makers efforts to reproduce historically accurate scenes). It's the most interesting film I've seen in years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 25 Sept. 2009
This was the cheapest coffee pot, of its size, I could find but it's been a great buy. I'm not a big espresso drinker but making a full pot of espresso with this pot and topping up each 'shot' with water from the kettle makes three large cups of very smooth, very satisfying coffee. It's economical too - cafetieres use far to much in my experience and make poor coffee.

Forget expensive coffee machines that make over-priced thimble-fulls of 'cafelattechocoespressochino'. Buy this and enjoy the taste of coffee as it's meant to be.
