4.0 out of 5 stars Great book - illustrations in Kindle edition seem to be all over the place., 29 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a classic so you can't go wrong really. 10 stories combined, some I had read before, some for the first time.

Kindle edition is not bad, not sure if the illustrations are in the correct place though in the Kindle edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Victor story, 29 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another great Victor story. Although many people do not like the main character because there is no padding about his history and other fluffy stuff I don't mind. Same as with real people you don't need to know every detail of their life to like them.

The book is well written and reads easy. Character is honorable even though he is an assassin... without giving away the plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very detailed and good pictures. Obviously you would have to use it ..., 29 July 2014

Very detailed and good pictures. Obviously you would have to use it in combination with actual Krav Maga training, but it is a good read on the side.

Great gloves. I use them for Krav Maga sparring. Size fits perfectly. Quality seems to be really good ... though only used a few times so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars nice bit of crime and without any schmalz, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Many reviews below state that it is hard to get going in this book because of the main character not providing much info on any background. To me this does not matter. Same as with soup you dont need to know every ingredient to know if the soup is nice or not. Viktor is a hitman but despite that he is not the "bad" guy in the story. So you follow Viktor in the story, it does not matter you dont know where he was born or if his mummy loved him. Actually I like the fact that this book has little schmalz in it.

Bought no.2 in the series will start reading it soon,

4.0 out of 5 stars 100% is rare to find these days, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a person with skin oversensitive to nylon, polyester, wool, basically anything that is not cotton, finding jumpers can be a tricky task. So this casual hoodie but fully 100% cotton was a blessing. Colour is like on the picture and it fits normally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for fussy cats, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Our puss refuses to drink from a bowl no matter how fresh the water is. So far she only drank when we ran the tap in the bath tub for her, but that is not very environmental friendly of course to have that one running all the time. If we did not run the water in the tub she simply would not drink at all and rather go dehydrated.

This fountain has been a life saver. It took her a day or 2 to get used to this new water thing in the kitchen but she loves it now and i think she drank more in the last week than she did in the last few months together.

There is virtually no sound from the motor so you barely notice it is there.

Happy puss = happy owner :)

The misfortunes and plot, this is a good thriller just set in a different time. It reads really well, not too stiff or old fashioned.


Celestron Moon Filter
Celestron Moon Filter
Price: £10.00

4.0 out of 5 stars basic need if you want to observe the moon, but you need to some clean up afterwards on the image, 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Celestron Moon Filter (Camera)
The filter is a basic need if you want to observe the Moon, it is simple as that, as our Moon is simply to close by and too bright to observe with a telescope without filter. But ooh ... the green hue the filter causes on photos. It makes the Moon look like cheese that has been lying in the back of the fridge for the last 2 years :)
Fear not, a good photo program like Photoshop or similar will allow you to remove this green hue and you will have some nice images of the Moon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book - very indepth but explained very clearly, 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This certainly no book for beginners in astronomy. You would need a good understanding of the working of stars and their composition to follow this. A good understanding of basic Physics and Maths as well.
However the book explains all very clearly, so even the page long equations are laid out step by step to follow. Questions throughout the book have the answers in the back. As with all OU books, good value for money.
