5.0 out of 5 stars mixes easily, and does not have that bitter, 21 July 2014
Convenient packets, mixes easily, and does not have that bitter, tinny aftertaste that other brands of stevia sometimes do...What more could I ask for?! :)

3.0 out of 5 stars and that I did enjoy the story, 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being that I am an Agatha Christie fan, and that I did enjoy the story, it is perhaps odd that I should only rate this book 3-stars: It is simply because I listened to this book on CD, and the reader was not the best, to put it mildly. Unless the male character had a distinctive accent (and even then, sometimes), they all sounded alike. The female characters were slightly better read, but even they had a sameness to them.So, by all means, enjoy this book, but not by this reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gallows Hill, 12 May 2014

This review is from: Gallows Hill (Paperback)
Salem, MA...Known throughout the world for the famous Salem Witch Trials. Yet, Salem continues...ordinary people still live there...They still love, and worry about their bills, and groan about their politicians...and keep secrets...As someone who lives in a "tourist town" (Rome, Italy), I was very pleased with how Mr. O'Brien reminds the reader that real people actual LIVE in Salem, and are not just there for the "amusement" of the tourists...His descriptions-though done with a very light touch-of Salem in all of its guises, almost make Salem another character, important to the plot. While I am on the theme of "light touch descriptions", Mr. O'Brien again does this quite well with his characters. Frankly, I do not remember any actual physical description of our two main characters, or even anything but very limited "back story" about them (this is especially true with Ouelette), yet-like the beginning of any friendship-I feel that I like these people, and want to get to know them better. Interestingly, I truly hope that Mr. O'Brien NEVER gets Lennox and Ouelette together romantically. The plot of this book is very well summarized in the blurb above, so I will not bore the reader with a rehash of it. My only "criticism" of this book is that there are a lot of typos. I can only think that the printers did this. I bring this up, only because,it can be distracting for some people, and I don't want it to colour future reviews. Forewarned, is forearmed. I received this book, planning to use it as a reward for getting things done: I thought that I would reward myself with a chapter after a set number of tasks etc...got done. All went well until my first "reward break", when my cup of tea, the cat and I sat in the pleasant chair near the window to enjoy chapter 1...Several hours, the cold dregs of tea, a hungry cat, and a finished book later, I looked up to see twilight coming on, and the majority of my To-Do List still undone. Yes, this book is that compelling. My advice is to buy the book IMMEDIATELY, but not to even OPEN it until you have cleared your calendar, so to speak, and can read it in one sitting with no guilt.

David Suchet is my favorite reader of the Poirot books, but Hugh Fraser comes in an extremely close second!!! The mystery itself is good, as usual with Agatha Christie. All in all, well worth the read or listen!

4.0 out of 5 stars True truvia..., 11 Sept. 2013

Now, to be fair, this product really COULD be better...That is, it takes a whole packet, or more-depending on your taste-to sweeten a cup of espresso coffee...That is my test; espresso coffee ( REAL espresso coffee, since I do live in Rome, Italy...) However, if you have no objection to using up a whole packet, for such a cause, then this is the stevia for you!!! :):):)

This is brilliant!!! The readers are wonderful. The stories are read COMPLETELY, without being cut off, as with other editions. If you want all of the stories, in their entirety, this is the edition to get!!!!

Very good product. Sweet enough, and disolves well. The fact that it is in individual packets is also helpful, in that you can take them with you wherever you go.
