1.0 out of 5 stars Seller's a crook., 26 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The seller has now updated the product description, when I purchased this it was photographed with a glazed side, which it doesn't have. I have not been able to get a refund, only abuse from the seller.

This is just a very, VERY expensive tile, which is of no more use than any plain pottery tile, its corners are crumbling (I haven't even used it), the wooden pizza spade is badly produced.

Worst transaction I've ever had online.

1.0 out of 5 stars A stanley knife would be easier and comfier to shave with., 4 Sep 2012
Awful razor, so bad that after trying it twice I put a new blade in assuming it'd come fitted with a blunt one. When time allows, I sometimes shave with a cut throat razor, which is easier and quicker than this junk!

1.0 out of 5 stars hopeless., 19 Aug 2012
Ive shaved with this thing twice. Both times with a new blade. This is because after the first time, I was convinced there was a problem with the blade. There wasn't. Just am awful, useless razor. Their other products may be good but you're better off shaving with a rusty Stanley knife.


Burn Mark

5.0 out of 5 stars The antidote!, 13 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Burn Mark (Paperback)
Just one real problem here, Burn Mark is about 1,600 pages shorter than I wanted it to be.

Oh and I kinda fancy one of the main characters.

Oh and I've kinda taken up asking neighbours'cats about Fae on the way to the shops.

This is absolutely the author's finest work to date, and in so many ways. The plot is so good, it's like looking into a finely engineered watch and unravelling how every cog relates to everything else in there, without ever losing the precious metal gleam of its beauty.

Characters, well I could recognise them out and about on the street with nothing more than an eyebrow to go on, they're just so rich, so real, and interact so... er... RIGHT.

And the magic, this book is the antidote for anyone who's bored of Hollywood jambing plastic action figures, or Twee-lite ****-suckers or recycled toddler fiction forced on them each and every time they seek entertainment. There's more suspense in the way Ms. Powell's Fae operates than you could support with a Bristol Suspension Bridge. That's a lot of suspense.

Ultimately I finished this fine novel feeling renewed, refreshed and above all happy and hopefull for humanity. Can't say fairer than that. Oh and **** = blood. Definitely blood.

5.0 out of 5 stars She's done it again!, 22 Oct 2011
Another absolute gem from the unbounded talents of Allegra McEvedy!

The book is dedicated to her daughter Delilah, and this is very appropriate... It's an amazingly personal, warm book, full of love and delight. It's also drop-dead-gorgeous; if you're feeling uninspired when faced with the eternal question "what shall we eat tonight?", a glance at a random page will get your salivary glands in a state of wild over excitement, it's as beautiful a piece of work as it is useful.

A book that the world's been needing, but didn't know it needed!

If you're thinking, stop, it's time to click "buy it now"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mandatory for A.T. trainees., 19 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Universal Constant in Living
But probably not of huge interest to others... there are vastly more approachable introductions out there.

Mouritz who handle the thing really need to wake up and realise that digitising this work and making it available online is the way it's going to go, and that they might as well do it themselves. 35? That's pretty seriously off putting, and does nothing to promote the technique.

5.0 out of 5 stars For A.T. students or those with a lot of patience!, 17 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mandatory reading for anyone doing a STAT course, a bit odd for anyone else, unless they're having lessons and want to know a bit more about Mr. Alexander.

Written before DNA was discovered, it is predicated on a misconception of how evolution operates, and there's a fair degree of racial predjudice (he didn't like Germans and considered some races primitive)... but that's got more to do with the prevailing attitudes of the time than the man himself. What it shows about him, is an enquiring mind and a devotion to improving the lot of our species.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ruined my life., 7 Feb 2011
Ok that's a bit harsh. My mum got one of these and it's been nothing but trouble... it gets freshly filtered water put into it every time it's used, but it still belches out foul brown filth onto freshly clean clothes unless it's taken apart and cleaned out at least every two weeks. It's been back to the supplier and they couldn't find a fault... suggesting to me that it's an inherent problem.

Most expensive iron we've ever had, also the worst. By a very, very long shot. Total junk, avoid!

5.0 out of 5 stars A miniature delight., 9 Nov 2010
Not a long book, but a charming one. Well written, clear, prettily bound, it's also full of very attractive illustrations, which are arranged as much for aesthetic delight as edification.

Excellent present for someone, accompanied by a pair of compasses and a pencil. They'll have a ruler, everyone has a ruler. Would also make a great book to work through with children, as it's maths, but it's maths of exquisite beauty and a high awesomeness quotient.

Opening the Door of Your Heart and Other Buddhist Tales of Happiness
Opening the Door of Your Heart and Other Buddhist Tales of Happiness
by Ajahn Brahm

4.0 out of 5 stars Simplistically, charmingly, resonant., 4 Oct 2010
Perhaps you can judge a book by who you'd give it to.

A book which I'd give to a lot of people to help them have happy lives is, by that criteria, a good book.

In fact it's a great book.

That said, whilst this is a charming collection of strands, knitted pleasingly into a nice warm scarf... it ain't all that deep.

Excellent introduction to Buddhism.

Not the most profound thing since the crossword.

Delicious refreshment if you're already moderately well versed in Buddhist writing, but just need something to kick start your daily life.
