Ordered for my elderly parent, this proved to be a plastic flimsy lens that proved useless. We had expected it to be made of glass.

Considerably sweeter than other coconut waters, it takes a bit of getting used to. Also being in tins does it make it as transportable and lightweight for travel.


The Forgotten (John Puller 2)
The Forgotten (John Puller 2)
by David Baldacci

5.0 out of 5 stars Baldacci never disappoints, 6 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As gripping as ever the ongoing story picks up exactly where the previous novel in the series 'Zero day' left off. So much so that when I read this immediately following the first I felt as if I was reading one long novel. As ever his research into the subject matter neverl fails and being topical is a plus. I have nothing but praise for this author who has the ability to consistently churn out superb crime thrillers. This one as always had me turning each page quicker than the previous, but it is wise to read the books in order so you know to whom or what he is referring in this second book in the series. I can't wait for the third.... Keep writing Baldacci!

2.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment, 4 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gone Girl (Paperback)
This has to be the biggest disappointment of the year. I expected a thriller but couldn't have been more wrong. The first half of the book is slow and boring to the point that I almost gave up however the second half picks up pace rapidly and was excellent and one can easily understand why it would be suitable to be made into a movie. However, the ending was a total waste of space and a huge disappointment. I consider myself open minded but some parts of the book are down right crude and unnecessarily explicit. One almost wondered if the editors told her to 'spice it up' somewhat. In fairness I cannot recommend this book nor would I bother to read any other by this novelist but as a movie, provided they change the ending it will be a winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking and different, 1 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great teacher's aide with different and unusual activities for students of all ages and levels. Good to have in one book so one can take along with you to the classroom as a back up also. Well put together. Perhaps the only negative comment I would have it is that is is geared more to the American market however that doesn't prohibit its use as a handy guide

2.0 out of 5 stars Not usual DK standard, 1 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having used DK guides for many years we were extremely disappointed in this guide. We felt the writer/s had not even been to some of the places described as they were so different to expectations. Many places that should have been included for the traveller were not and we came upon them by accident which was great but no thanks to the book making no mention of them. This happened on several occasions. Surprisingly some great coastal towns were not even mentioned even when of considerable size and highly rated by both visitors and locals. It became essential to use a road map in addition to this guide - very very disappointing.
