Tuff-Luv 'Rouge' Napa Leathe Case Cover and Stand for Amazon Kindle 2 / 6 inch Global Wireless (Flip Style) - Red
Tuff-Luv 'Rouge' Napa Leathe Case Cover and Stand for Amazon Kindle 2 / 6 inch Global Wireless (Flip Style) - Red

5.0 out of 5 stars Great case, secure and functional, 1 Jan 2010
Product is exactly as the picture - it can be held in the hand, or a flap on the back opens out so you can have the Kindle standing on a table...or on your chest as you lie in bed reading :-)

Kindle is held securely in a slide-in case, and the top flap is fastened with a pop-stud to keep it closed in a bag / pocket. Kindle will only fall out if you hold the case upside down without fastening the top flap.

It's a good quality case - I've shoved it in an overfull bag on many business trips in the last 2 months and it still looks as good as new.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull and disconnected, 23 July 2009
This review is from: Chicago (Paperback)
Gives some interesting insights into the mindset of Egyptian medics studying in US and their motivations, but ultimately the stories of the different characters are flat and poorly developed. The characters do have connections, but these are weak (e.g. they work in the same department) and have only minimal interaction.

2.0 out of 5 stars Self-pitying with no storyline, 6 Jun 2005
This book did not live up to its back-cover. It was only faintly (and rarely) amusing. The tale is told in the first person and the overall impression was that the consultant felt deeply sorry for himself.
No real insites into the work of a management consultant and no real storyline to keep you engaged.
Will keep you from complete boredom on a long flight but that's about it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Long with more padding than plot, 22 July 2003
Read this because it was on the 100 Big Read book list...I kept going through the 900+ pages thinking "something will happen soon" - I hope.
I simply can not understand why some people rate this "favourite" - the prose centres more on pondering the different methods of farming in Russia than on the storyline and fails to explore the vague plot lines that are setup (such as the debts of Vronsky)
Long, turgid and I'd rather take up knitting than read another Tolstoy
