Able 2 Car & Chair Easy-Swivel Transfer Cushion

1.0 out of 5 stars Not fit for purpose, 12 July 2014
I was incorrectly sent this item. It does not do what it is intended for. I would not recommend it under any circumstances.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Possible Life (Paperback)
I was left wondering if these stories were meant to be related and I had missed something, or if it is simply a set of short stories.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 12 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love Steinbeck's novels, but I found this 'journey' rather dull. Not really about America , more a chain of random thoughts.

3.0 out of 5 stars Packaging poor, 12 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The item was delivered promptly as promised.
The box was packed in a polythene envelope which offers waterproof protection but no physical strength. The box had been squashed which is disappointing as this was bought as a gift. I paid 3.99 for shipping and at this price it should have been better packed. So disappointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition disappointing, 17 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the Kindle edition to use while I was away. I found it impossible to navigate my way around the text. To read as a book was fine, but to use to look things up, impossible. I therefore downloaded it onto my iPad which was an improvement but still awkward. Eventually I bought a hard copy in Cambodia for 5. The cheap price accounted for the fact that occasional pages were missing, but despite that the book was much more useful than the Kindle edition. Perhaps Lonely Planet guides do not suit Kindle, or maybe I am simply not adept enough at using this technology.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor translation, 16 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Madame Bovary (Kindle Edition)
Do not buy, not even for free, this edition of Madame Bovary. It is a dreadful translation, hard to read because of spelling errors and not the joy that such a classic should be. The formatting is also poor. It does Flaubert a great injustice.
