2.0 out of 5 stars So slow, 30 Sep 2013
After the Black House I was expecting big things from this book based in the western / northern isles - but the plot is so slow - you can skip several chapters without missing a thing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring, boring , boring, 28 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perhaps the most boring film I've seen - difficult to stay awake. Wooden acting and slow pace - don't buy

2.0 out of 5 stars Not set in Paris, 28 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The reviews of this film are very misleading. Set in Paris - no - the first five minutes are supposedly in Paris - but could be anywhere. Cold war - nothing to do with the plot. Second rate B movie - don't buy.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An awful piece of kit. Not dish washer proof, difficult to clean, burns the omelette - what more can I say ?

3.0 out of 5 stars A committed Paul Temple fan, 10 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I admit to being a committed Paul Temple fan and had been waiting for this release for some time. I have to say that I find Crawford Logan's interpretation of Paul Temple patronising compared to Peter Coke and that 10 episodes is perhaps one or two too many as things start to drag around episodes 6 / 7. Some strange interludes where Steve sits at the piano and sings? Overall worth the wait, but not the very best, let's hope that they keep on finding lost scripts.

The download version is out of sequence in which the final chapter is in Chapter 2's place - not very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reviews removed from web site, 8 Feb 2013
Why have the reviews of this book been removed from your web site? This book is now, like many other books in a second edition - however the 6 reviews for edition one has been removed ?

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special, 17 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these earphones for trail running and I've now used them for about three weeks. To be quite honest they're nothing special, my previous earphones that cost 20 less are better as they have much louder bass. I agree with another reviewer that the in line sound control is a pain and like reviewer I also have to clip it onto my heart rate monitor strap to keep it out of the way, why bother?

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing results, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These little bags are not the silver bullet to the perfect poached egg. They fall over in the water, timing is difficult to get right. I've followed the instructions to the word and had reasonable results in 50% of cases. Would not buy again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shallow and dull., 29 Feb 2012
I am a big fan of the 1980's BBC version of this book and was very excited when I heard about this re-make. I found it very disappointing, the characters were shallow and dull and it's not in the same league as the original version. I'm very pleased that it didn't win a handful of Oscars - it's not worthy.
