An excellent well written and enjoyable book: I have been recommending it left right and centre, and everyone has enjoyed it too. Thoughtfully written with a light touch: thank you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good light and very cheap, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought several of these to give as presents to guides in national parks in Madagascar. I used one throughout the trip and found it excellent and very powerful. The battery drained away quite quickly but perhaps that's normal. Very good value I thought and it comes with a nice presentation case.

This review is from: Sing You Home (Kindle Edition)
I was into chapter tow when I realised I had already read this book, and so it's not memorable! She tells a story (which is a good point) but the narrative has a certain shallowness despite the subject matter which is far from shallow. Perhaps call it a tear jerker would be accurate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charge of the bufffalos, 11 Feb 2014

It appears easy to set up (just plug in the USB3 cable and you are off. the accompanying software is badly presented and tiresome to make good use of. That aspect needs rethinking and needs to be better presented.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doing the job, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to set up, and it has noticeably extended the wifi into dark 'unlit' areas of the house. I have a meter to test such things (a free app on the Kindle Fire) and can see that it has really usefully extended the wi-fi signal and allowed me to connect the TV to the internet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure I can be wholehearted, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The case is robustly made EXCEPT for the catch which disintergrated within a very short time (this is a tuck flap arrangement to close it). The use of a magnetic switch off device when you close it also seems to turn it off if you fold the case back on itself. so far not so good. The keyboard seems unwilling to link up via Bluetooth without a certain amount of nudging. I am beginning to think that 3 stars was too generous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Letters of Marque, 11 Feb 2014

These lesser known writings of Kiplings are the musings of a young man about to go three quarters round the world via Japan and the USA, leaving behind his beloved India to which he would return but briefly just once again in his life. The book is full of incidents and repeated conversations told with a gentle wit, and a keen eye. Warmly commended.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Julian Barnes has created a beginning into which you are convincingly and compellingly drawn. I think he is best when he is telling his tale, and tends to be more wordy when he pauses for a philosophical rumination, but overall the novel's many threads are drawn together in as way that may remind you of the sins and omissions in your own affairs. Warmly commended.

1.0 out of 5 stars can you read Chinese or Burmese, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you buy a paper map you probably spot what language is used on the map....so to find some maps overcrowded with three languages meant I was disappointed by this purchase albeit at this modest price. Some elementary spelling mistakes suggest this was a rushed job.

Ultimately it's your brain that lets you down but this free app is generous and provides a wonderful start. Its creators are to be congratulated.
