Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is okay but the old fashioned writing style may not be to everyones taste. Saying that I always like to read the original of a book where possible. I did find it a bit boring in places but I saw it through to the end. I am glad I read the book before seeing the film which I hope to do soon. What these people went through was horrendous - I cant believe one human being could do that to another!

5.0 out of 5 stars buy pure!!, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After trying so many creams, potions and lotions I am now opting for buying all natural products - you can get loads of stuff with aloe vera in it but you cant beat it 100% pure. When I was in Jamaica I tried this straight from the plant and it was lovely - this is about the same - soaks in very easily and leaves skin soft. Cant go wrong!

These are lovely curtains, excellent quality and look fab, had loads of comments on them. For the price I paid (about 16!) cant go wrong, looking lovely in my daughter's "shabby chic" bedroom.

I am really really pleased with these, been looking for some new straightners for some time but couldn't afford much. They are just like the ones used in hair salons, nice and weighty with a really long cable (my last pair barely reached between the plug and the mirror!). They glide through your hair with ease and leave it poker straight. Stays straight as well, hardly having to touch it when I get up in the morning. The 3 heat settings are good I try to keep it on the 2nd setting and that is fine for my hair. The pouch is great with a slot for the straightners and combined heat mat so you can put them in your bag if need be immediately after being used. For the money these are a fantastic product, recommended!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really sure what to say....!!, 13 July 2011
This review is from: Crash (Paperback)
Erm!! Probably the weirdest book I will have ever read in my lifetime. I am nearing the end and cannot really decide whether I am enjoying it or not, although to say you are enjoying it does make you sound a bit perverse considering the content!! I did read the reviews before I brought it but because the reviews were so interesting and varied from absymal to absolutely amazing I had to get it to find out for myself. Pretty sick in places and very dark, also (as others have said) fairly repetitive. And yes, the word 'stylized' is way way way over used and its now getting to the point that the word makes me cringe LOL! One of those books that people will have different opinions on depending on how they wish to translate the script. At the end of the day whatever Ballard was trying to achieve with this book to me it is still, at the end of the day, very much just PORN !! Been rushing to finish it so I can start a 'normal' book :-)

2.0 out of 5 stars Good price but be wary!, 14 April 2011
I wasnt sure how to rate this product because I never actually got to use it!! It arrived extremely quickly and seemed quite a compact little machine which was what I wanted for room purposes. Like others have said the bolt holes did not line up and one was damaged completely. there was also white paint or something all over the plug! I wondered whether I had received a machine which somebody else had returned! Anyway i was looking forward to having a go but hey presto it didn't work! After about 3 sets of new batteries we gave up. We dismantled it all and re-packaged it and I emailed the company (sports plc) and informed them. Their response was to 'bend the battery terminals and it should work!'. I said I had no intention of 'bending' anything, I had paid for a new and working machine machine and that's what I wanted. I said that if I starting bending things on the machine and something broke off I could be accused of messing with it myself and rendering myself void of a refund! They apologised then and said it would be collected. I asked if a new machine could be brought at the time of collection and they flatly refused to do this until they had the machine back and checked it. This would put me back by about 2 weeks until I recieved a replacement. At this point I asked for a refund, not really trusting that a replacement would work either after some of the reviews I have read. So I decided to go for a more expensive but superior machine and opted for the bslimmer. Could not be happier with that - I have put a review on the site. I suppose you get what you pay for but if you want to avoid unnecessary hassle and order a machine that may or may not work, I would go for something else!!

5.0 out of 5 stars so far so very good!, 14 April 2011
I am generally not one for writing reviews on everything I buy but if the product is exceptionally good or appallingly bad I think it is worth commenting. I have only had the machine just over a week but am already feeling some benefit. After 5 ten minutes sessions I got on the scales and had lost 2lb, all the incentive I needed to carry on! This was not doing any specific excercise on it, just set on a low programme (P1) and just standing on it. I am a fibromyalgia sufferer so cannot really do full workouts or go to the gym - well I could but would end up in bed for the next 3-4 days in agony!! I truly believe that I am going to benefit a lot from this. As a fibro sufferer I do experience extreme tiredness and I am not saying that I am suddenly full of abounding engergy but I find I am a little less tired and more able than normal. I have also found that my bowel habits have improved, my skin tone is healthier and I am sleeping better! I dont know how it compares to other machines as this is the only one I have been on but cannot fault it at all. If you are a beginner set off slowly (the lower settings are better for weight loss anyway if that's your aim) - the full speed is really intense! I felt a little ill for the first few days and even a little depressed but I think this is the releasing of toxins in the body and also all this jolting is not what our bodies are used to. If this happens to you, stick with it after a few sessions you will really start to feel better. Cannot fault the company I ordered it from either (InternetukShop), the item was delivered very quickly. Unfortunately the plate at the bottom had a crack in it but I didn't want to return it and wait for another machine so they agreed to knock 20.00 off the price which I was happy with. It was easy to put together and sturdy and the wheels on the base make it easy to move around. I would say if in doubt, get this piece of equipment it is brilliant (and I am not easy to please!!). Well worth the money too and will work out much cheaper than going to the gym etc. A friend of mine's daughter is apparently hiring one and it is costing her 150.00 per month! You do the maths :-)

Send Me No Flowers
Send Me No Flowers

Price: 5.83

4.0 out of 5 stars not for the faint hearted, 23 Feb 2011
This review is from: Send Me No Flowers (Paperback)
I think if you are easily offended or upset do not buy this book! Dont get me wrong I enjoyed the book, although saying that makes me feel a bit perverse strangely. It is very graphic in its description of the abuse that takes place and maybe that could have been made clearer as I would imagine this book would shock a lot of people. Jenny Tomlin is a good writer and obviously pulls no punches in any of her work. The other book of hers I have read is 'Sweetie' and that is also very disturbing. Just be aware of her 'no holes barred'style before purchasing any of Jenny's books.
