4.0 out of 5 stars Good for plant labels, 14 Sept. 2014

There's not a lot one can say about wooden sticks. I use them for plant markers as the plastic ones degrade in sun. For that purpose they do a good job. I can't comment on what they do waxing-wise.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay for the price, 14 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I took this on holiday in case I needed to re-proof my mac whilst there and the bottle leaked all over my bag. Not good. The product itself was okay but my (very expensive) mac still seems only to repell light showers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't add up, 5 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Blue Jasmine (DVD)
Vaguely interesting but hardly "Sleeper" or "Annie Hall" and in places it just didn't add up. Jasmine has gone from uber-rich to destitute; well in that case why didn't she sell the Hermes bag or the luggage? She still appeared to have kept an extensive wardrobe despite arriving at her sister's house with 'nothing'.
Sister Ginger, whose house is certainly downmarket in comparison to what Jasmine had, but still roomy and filled with non-essentials, stacks shelves at the supermarket so is, presumably, on minimum wage and a zero hours contract. She has two kids to support but still manages to accompany Jasmine to swish parties, dine in above-average restaurants and buy champers when the dead-beat boyfriend (who was the best thing in it) returns. And who buys the prodigious amounts of vodka that Jasmine drinks throughout without getting drunk?
These niggling discrepancies masked any desire I might have had to sympathise with the characters or be bothered to care what happened to them by the end - which took a very long time coming.


Skios
Skios
by Michael Frayn
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A light read in every sense, 12 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Skios (Paperback)
In terms of 'light' holiday reading this is helium - but all the better for being so.
The plot is suitably twisty and characters, although rather stereotyped are believable
and very human.


Flight Behaviour
Flight Behaviour
by Barbara Kingsolver
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.74

3.0 out of 5 stars Long long long, 12 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flight Behaviour (Paperback)
It takes the first 120 pages for the heroine to walk up a hill there is so much description going on.
Makes Proust sound like a sub editor. Still, it paints a picture and sustains on those rainy days during vacations
and it was based on a true story - well the butterfly bits are anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the trick, 12 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This stuff smells attrocious so keeps away all unwanted attention from anything within a 50 yard radius - including friends, husbands, dogs etc. It also keep away mosquitos and is therefore a worthwhile product to buy
