Price: £44.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite the best electric toothbrush we have ever had, 6 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite the best electric toothbrush we have ever had. The cost of brush heads may occasion a sharp intake of breath but, once that has been accepted, it is value for money.


Handstand Dashboard Sat Nav Holder
Handstand Dashboard Sat Nav Holder

5.0 out of 5 stars ... reasonably flat area of dashboard and it does an excellent job of holding a sat nav in place without ..., 6 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This needs only a reasonably flat area of dashboard and it does an excellent job of holding a sat nav in place without interrupting the forward view.
The material on the back holds it steady without sticking so that the holder is easily removable at all times. If any ridge or curvature is underneath it, it may not be totally resistant to moving with vibration. But, given a flat area, it's great.


A Dedicated Man (Inspector Banks Book 2)
A Dedicated Man (Inspector Banks Book 2)
Price: £4.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Good plot. Readable but could do with more convincing characterisation and atmosphere., 11 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good story and eminently readable but a little "bare bones". The author neglects Banks' family nearly as much as he does.Fictional place names are well chosen and sound convincing but other aspects of background and atmosphere are less compelling.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good history but not tightly edited, 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Intriguing snippet of medieval history and especially interesting on the immediate aftermath of Magna Carta. Well researched on the warfare strategies and tactics of the time. Could have benefitted from tighter editing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Came on time. Does all it says on the tin, 24 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this to shift some recalcitrant screws and it has already done several such jobs well. I am very pleased with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful stuff but not if used as recommended, 1 Aug. 2013
I bought this in 3 lots. The first was last year. When I tried to install it with the plastic pins supplioed and as directed in the instructions, I got nowhere. After much frustration, I rolled the mesh into a mesh "tunnel" and put sections (1-1.5 metres) of that into my (rectangular) gutters and joined them up in one section of the roof.I left it that way over the winter. When I looked at it after summer finally arrived this year, it had worked really rather well!
So I did the same to gthe rest of the roof this year. We'll have to wait another year to see if that also works.


Au Revoir, Europe: What if Britain left the EU?

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for anyone planning to vote in the referendum, 1 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This begins by listing the many ills of the EU almost like a UKIP manifesto. Then it starts to unpick the options and problems of Britain leaving the EU in considerable detail. Overall a pretty balanced and well researched view. It certainly provides voters with the crucial questions to ask of both sides in any referendum. This is such a big subject that no single work can be comprehensive but this focuses well on important issues.


Rationing and Revelry: The Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, 1953 (Kindle Single)
Rationing and Revelry: The Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, 1953 (Kindle Single)
Price: £0.98

3.0 out of 5 stars Period nostalgia. Interesting but not outstanding, 1 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Useful to be reminded of all the wrinkles of rationing and these times. Points of interest but not a page turner.
