2.0 out of 5 stars sat on my bookshelves for 3 years, 27 Jun 2014
i finally got round to reading this in full as i seem to remember i started it but found it dull and ponderous.well guess what its still the same.i really wanted to like this but as the 1 star people said its written in hard to read prose with some parts not really about the shows.oh well.

2.0 out of 5 stars oh what a shame, 7 Jun 2014
This review is from: Who is Tom Ditto? (Hardcover)
ive always liked danny wallaces books but feel rather let down by his latest offering.In fact i read a third then skipped to the back to complete it which i hardly ever do but was glad i did as the book goes nowhere with cardboard characters set in a world i couldnt believe in.Perhaps everything will be all right next time?

2.0 out of 5 stars mined out, 23 Sep 2013
Having read the rest of the series and enjoyed them i was looking forward to this book but unfortunately was disappointed it didnt reach the standards of the previous ones.As someone else has said this was more like a list of london restaurants and cafes and therefore didnt have the widespread appeal of the other books.Perhaps the list of babylons is coming near to an end.Book Babylon as the next title?

4.0 out of 5 stars good camera but poor battery life, 8 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
bought this camera in dec 2011 from amazon and the quality of photos are great.however with no viewfinder its difficult to use in bright sunlight and i have just found the battery not recharging after not that much us. looked this up on internet and it seems that other people have had similar issues with the battery.New one costs about a tenner so not that much of an issue but need to be aware

3.0 out of 5 stars not waterproof, 6 Aug 2012
Unfortunately as much as i love hi tec these trainers arent waterproof around the part where the soles meet the top at the front meaning that after 2 weeks of wearing they began to let water in where the glue came away.Perhaps they shouldnt go on so much about the waterproofing.Otherwise they are incredible light but dont wear out in the rain

1.0 out of 5 stars couldnt finish this one, 22 May 2012
This review is from: Ruinair (Paperback)
Having read all the reviews I thought I would give this a go as I like travel/humour books.What I found was a book that I just couldnt be bothered to finish which is extremely rare for me.I cant quite put my finger why this was.It could have been the unfunny jokes or perhaps the mismash of travelodge/history of different places/reportage of different cheap fly airlines.I try the other book on ryanair and will let you know about that one.
