1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 30 Dec. 2014
It's never ideal to have to send gifts back after Christmas but sadly that's what I had to do with this item. Poor quality meant the holes were not in the centre of the plates so the stand could not be put together with the plates flat. The seller refunded without a quibble but I would rather have had a usable cake stand.

1.0 out of 5 stars So disappointed!, 17 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As the owner of 3 pairs of exhausted Karrimor sandals, I thought I was safe buying a new pair in the same size. But I have just returned them as - despite carrying all the 'right' labels - they were more than 2cms shorter than my other pairs. I take a size 8 UK; these sandals were too short, even for a friend who takes size 6.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the cover, 25 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sort of book that you read through, knowing you are going to return to again and again. I'm recommending it to all my friends who have children because it really does inspire you to enjoy the best and keep the 'worst' in proportion. Smartly written and packed full of places-to-visit to find out even more, should you wish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential kit, 29 Aug. 2013

Not an in-depth handbook but a concise and very handy headlines-for-rabbit-care book: it's been in regular use as our two rabbits have settled in.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but flawed, 29 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The rabbits have enjoyed the toy but the owners have not been so impressed with the quality. The bark effect is glued on but the glue doesn't hold well, so pieces fall off; and it is not remotely weatherproof - even a short light shower left the whole thing warped out of shape. It should be described as being for indoor use only.

1.0 out of 5 stars Grammatical nightmare, 29 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So many errors in this book that it is hard to know where to begin: the author claims to be writing a completely new type of book and - unfortunately - that is the case. Perhaps, with a thorough desk edit and proofread, this could be readable but it is a nightmare for anyone with a grasp of grammar and syntax. The persistence of apostrophe-and-s to denote a plural is painful, though the misuse of 'there' and 'their' is just as glaring. It's a shame because the author has been meticulous with his research and the basic premise of telling the story through the experiences of Francis Lovell is appealing but the quality of writing and presentation lets the whole book down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, 8 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Studio Olafur Eliasson (Hardcover)
Few people have the luxury of being able to experience Eliasson's work, in person. This book goes a long way to capturing his genius and the sheer beauty of his unexpected creations. I would rather see the real thing - but this is a delightful 2nd-best.
