The Harry Harrison Megapack: 11 Classics of Science Fiction
The Harry Harrison Megapack: 11 Classics of Science Fiction
Price: 0.37

2.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a let down!, 6 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always loved Harry Harrison's work - he is a great story teller and I have read stories like "the technicolor time machine" and "Rebel in time" more times than I care to mention. Not complex but really enjoyable. So when this came along at 0.36p I thought "wow".
And no doubt it is worth risking this amount if you are interested in SF. But I did not enjoy any of the stories and was genuinely disappointed. None of the stories I knew and very ordinary stuff

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really useful, 7 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very vague guiding and massive space given over to authors I have never heard of. Lots of titles that I really rate are not included even when the author is there. Perhaps they are not "space opera" ! - who knows
And then again titles I know and love are given poorish ratings - perhaps writing readable and enjoyable prose is non - U.
But still interesting in its way

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really much use, 31 Jan 2014

Looks cute but completely ignored by our 3 cats from the start. Still lying on the floor unloved & unwanted. Shame because as I say it looks good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kickeroo magic!, 31 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kong Kickeroo Pattern 2 (Misc.)
Bought one for our 3 pussies as their Christmas present and they loved it - and do over a month later when most cat toys are well forgotten. They must use a really strong/ special catnip and it certainly works.
Came from USA (I think) and was quicker in arriving than expected even at the pre-Christmas busy period. All round excellent (nb I bought another for a friend's cat and she also thought it the bee's knees.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK at the price, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nothing really wrong with this bean at the price other than it is a bit bland - you drink it and then move on. Nothing really exciting or enjoyable - it's just OK. I would probably not buy again though if offered it by a friend I would be happy to drink it. Probably the old adage "you get what you pay for" is appropriate here

3.0 out of 5 stars Its OK, 26 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Regularly buy coffee beans online and normally go to specialist suppliers (the Coffee Bean Shop do a great job - super beans at a good price with fortnightly special offers) but thought I would try these much cheaper beans from a well known name. And at first I liked these Lavazza beans - an OK taste at a good price. But a couple of weeks on I am getting bored - these are a bit bland and really not the special event a well made cup of coffee should be. So - quite drinkable and something I would be happy to offer visitors but a bit "B list" against a good product from a specialist supplier (but who will obviously charge more).

4.0 out of 5 stars fussy pussies like it (most of the time!), 26 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have tried most products on the market over last couple of years - we have 3 mature moggies (a tiny tortoiseshell and her two big twin sons) and have found this to be their favourite. They just will not touch Many products and we have wasted a lot of money and time on trying to meet their food demands. However they do seem to like this stuff and they all look well on it. Almost more important to my wife is that Felix does not smell like Whiskas products which cause a horrible pong in the bin (according to her anyway - do women have better sense of smell than chaps?).
Anyway now have this on subscription, saving a bit more cash, and have happy pussies (and wife)

5.0 out of 5 stars Sanders of the River, 16 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These stories of British West Africa pre-WW1 are great stories and very well structured. The main character isSanders himself, always the main man even when not present. He is well supported by his army chief, Capt ain Hamilton. To me less enjoyable is Bones the young lieutenant who comes over as a bit of a idiot but who shows excellent features when under real pressure.
The problems and situations of the period are imaginatively written and most importantly very enjoyable.
Give this book a go!

4.0 out of 5 stars Redness relief, 18 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Picked up this product via rosacea relief reasearch. Not cheap & via USA. But really effective at reducing overall redness and a litle goes a long way. Does not really get rid of strong redness but will reduce its impact. Does not last forever esp. if you are exercising/perspiring - you will need to re-apply. But I will re-order and keep as a basic tool in reducing redness. A good product
