2.0 out of 5 stars An unlucky one, perhaps, 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looked good on arrival. Unfortunately the legs at one end collapsed and snapped off as soon as I used the product to hold newspapers. No use at all, and a shame. Given the seven impeccable reviews of this item, perhaps I got unlucky and had one that wasn't joined properly.

On the plus side, Amazon's returns policy seems reliable as ever.

This seemed the best of the items available for the Olympic coins. I'm not disappointed at all with the quality and would buy this brand again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A promising debut, 13 April 2013

This review is from: If You Leave (Audio CD)
I'd been looking forward to Elena Tonra's first full-length outing ever since I bought a couple of the early EPs and caught a magical gig in St Giles in the Fields church in London. The results of the last couple of years' recording are well worth a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in the price bracket, 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a leather (or leather effect) iPhone 5 case which allowed easy access to the phone and to its camera. This does everything I need and has the bonus of a flap so the camera lens isn't constantly exposed (as with most other cases). The price point and quality are both great - and indeed we've now bought two of these (for separate phones, I hasten to add).

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, 29 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought one of these to keep an eye on my heart rate and blood oxygen levels, and have no complaints at all: it worked out of the box and hasn't let me done in the first year or so of use. I paid around £21 for mine, which I considered excellent value (not sure if it was a different Amazon seller or a promotion). Even at £30, though, I'd think this is worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugely convenient, 29 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ever been stuck on a long train journey with your iPod battery dwindling as you make the most of the wifi? Ever been lucky enough to sit in a carriage with power sockets, only to realise that you've drawn the short straw and for some reason nothing works? Well, this is the solution. I've used mine a few times now, with a 3rd Gen iPod Touch, and it works well. Looks pretty good, charges properly, and manages to convey that charge to the iPod without complication. Beware: it's bulky enough to obstruct the headphone socket, so you might want to consider a male to female adaptor to go with it (and if so, you should probably check that the adaptor will carry the charge). Nonetheless, the product exceeded my expectations - well worth a look.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not convinced, 29 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are certainly great value for money, but after burning through two or three of them I wasn't convinced at all. They didn't apply particularly happily (and yes - I am careful enough to have a reasonable track record in avoiding the dreaded bubbles), and at least one just didn't stick properly. If you're willing to pay a little more, I think there are better products out there.

Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a read, 29 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not sure I enjoyed this quite as much as the author's previous success, The Cloudspotter's Guide. Don't let that put you off, though: I REALLY enjoyed that one. This is another interesting jaunt through a wider field of interest, and on more than one occasion it left me reappraising how I thought the world worked.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun - and thought-provoking - read, 29 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
David Crystal is consistently engaging and fascinating. This book doesn't break that mould, but what it offers in addition is a format that makes it easy to dip in and out when time is short. Great for changing trains and buses on my commute, which is always a bonus! While the format is light, the content isn't fluff - I repeatedly found myself spiralling through Wikipedia and other websites chasing ideas that the book had brought to mind. A great gift for anyone with an interest in our language.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting guides - but bring your own map or satnav, 29 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We really enjoyed these guidebooks on a recent trip to the south of France. They were a refreshing change from the Rough Guides and Lonely Planets of this world, offering a good balance between manageable content (and excursions) and going beyond the obvious attractions. As others have said, it wouldn't be wise to rely on the maps in these books, but provided you have something else with you (be it a proper map or decent satnav) you'll enjoy following some quirky routes around the French countryside.
