Gwynne's Latin: The Ultimate Introduction to Latin Including the Latin in Everyday English
by N.M. Gwynne
Edition: Hardcover

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not as expected from the reviews which seem to me to be based upon the author's extremely biased viewpoint

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My initial misgivings were unfounded. Since I always read the lower star ratings first to get the worst possible scenario to avoid rushing in too soon, I concluded that the users had expected too much because I had previously bought and used the Remington MB 320C and found it far better than the negative ratings. With this in mind, I thought I would try the MB4555 - at first, I could not adjust the height of cut so decided to try on another day. The 2nd and subsequent attempts were easy!
Because so many users had complained that the locking device did not work, I thought that they might have been less careful than they should have been and, after 3 weeks, decided that they had been too rough or not careful enough. The locking device has worked perfectly for me, possibly, because I am very careful how I hold the device to avoid inadvertently touching the locking switch.
I use the beard trimmer once a week and also use it to cut my own hair - I am bald on top which helps.
It must be used slowly and carefully for the best results - any impatience fails.
Frequent brushing away the hairs helps to prevent blocking. After dismantling to remove hairs inside the device, it is tricky to reassemble the trimmer - the instructions are hopeless - once again, slow but sure has worked so far.
I am pleased with the trimmer which is definitely better than the 320C model.

Not what i expected from this author. The plot was too complicated for my liking whilst being too predictable at times. Not up to his usual standard but I may be getting too critical in my old age!

Do not waste your time or money. The 1st class reviews are highly suspect and will not be believed so readily in future.

A 1st class product. It could only be improved by increasing the font size but this would doubtless increase it's price.

1st class- eminently fit for purpose. Its weight makes it difficult to handle but this is more than compensated for by its content.
