very poor quality, thin plastic, rough at the edges and some of the paint at the edges looked worn off. also looked like the patterns wouldn't stay on for long. very cheap, low class product. will not recommend.

on my phone now and i love the chirpy colour :) the cover fits great on the phone. screen protectors were crap - too big, had to cut them which looked a mess. in the end i had to order from another seller.

i bought a yellow one as well and it fit perfectly on my phone but when i put the purple one on my phone kept turning it self on and off - as if the button bit was too indented. my husband had to cut off the bits over the button, but that has spoilt it for me. shame. the colour was also not as dark as i thought it would be.

4.0 out of 5 stars glad there were 5!, 17 Mar. 2014

easy to put on but beware the cut outs from the holes are still on there, so you need to get rid of them before putting the protector on. i had to have 3 goes before it was perfect, but it's now amazing :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Did not make me care, 4 Feb. 2005
This review is from: Brick Lane (Paperback)
I picked up this book as the plot sounded interesting and the reviews on the book were fantastic however after only a few chapters I was bored with it. Despite that I plodded on thinking that the storyline will get more interesting and engaging. However it failed to grip me and I decided to give up after 200 pages. That's alot to say for someone who never puts a book down till it's finished. I suppose the characters were so un-engaging and interesting that I just got bored with reading about Nazneen's life at home, endless gossip from her neighbours, and her sister's Bangladeshi letters presented in broken English.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but somehow lacking, 28 Jan. 2005
It is a very readable book though one must keep in mind that it's a purported portrait of one Afghan family. I do not agree that it panders to Western ideas of society, it's just inevitable for us to read information through cultural blinkers and our personal understanding of society and how relationships work. It is thus natural for the author to feel what she does about the Afghan society where the male plays a dominating role. Not sure about where the author gets information on the thoughts and feelings of the characters but I think she has done a good job in expressing the frustration and I actually enjoyed reading the book after going through the dreadful preface where the author seemed more intent on talking about herself than the content of the book. Interesting concept, but there is something seriously missing, perhaps sincerity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and Evocative, 28 Jan. 2005
A wonderful book which contains some of the best dialogue and exchanges ever about the difference between blacks and whites and the hatred that eats into people. Very descriptive and evocative, this book gives voice to the legacy of colonialism, human relationships, politics and love. What I liked most about it was the honesty, all the characters were inspiring in their own way but we were also aware of their weaknesses, and were able to accept that is what makes them whole as a person. It doesn't try to make excuses for anything but offers an acute observation of life that only a few people who take the time will be able to notice. In spite of the brutality that ensued, there was genuine friendship, caring, courage and bravery which allows humanity to be redeemed. My favourite characters are Emerita who was full of life and daring, Valvourt, who was very self aware esp of his weaknesses, Gentille noble and beautiful and the personal growth which love creates in her, and her father and cousin who lamented the destruction that would descend when friends and relatives killed one another. A must-read and important reminder that 'Never Again' does not mean anything unless the international community ensures the promise is kept.
