5.0 out of 5 stars great read, 18 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this. I picked it up expecting it to be frothy and cheesy and light, but it was far more engaging and complex than your typical poolside read. The characters are well imagined and likeable, and the plot is far from predictable. Back to the kindle store for more from the same author!

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy the Kindle version!, 3 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am sure this is a great book - if you buy the paper version. On a Kindle, the pictures are too small and you have to keep flicking back and forth to try and match the pictures and the text.

From what I could see the book itself looked pretty good, and I am quite tempted to buy it in paper format. Just annoyed at having wasted money on a book I can't really read.

These taste amazing especially considering they are low calorie low fat treats. A lot of popcorn is quite bland but these are packed with flavour. I have tried all of them except the coconut ones and would recommend them all

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, easy to put together and folds down ..., 11 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality, easy to put together and folds down quite well when not in use. My son has no problem to get up and down himself which is a big advantage over a regular trainer seat. As it has a turtle theme I think it is more appealing for a small child than a plain seat.

The only small issue with it is that it has lots of little nooks and crannies which are not the easiest thing to clean. I suppose that is the sacrifice you make for having a padded as opposed to a plastic seat. Also the screws do work loose over time so you have to tighten them regularly (as they warn you on the instructions!)

Overall it is a really good product which has helped us a lot

4.0 out of 5 stars It would only have to be about 5mm taller and it would be perfect., 11 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This purse is very well made, plenty of space and well thought out (eg when it is full, there is a little flap that expands the press stud and means you can still close it securely)

My only gripe, and it is one that every purse seems to suffer from, is why they can't seem to make a purse big enough for a passport to fit into. It would only have to be about 5mm taller and it would be perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, 11 Aug. 2014

Very good quality and lots of storage space. Easily fits a reasonable sized laptop and plenty of papers, as well as generous pockets for phones, purse and all other assorted junk.

I have bought several Visconti products and they have all been great

4.0 out of 5 stars Get a size bigger than you think you need!, 11 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's fine, good quality and I got an excellent price because I managed to find one that was in the sale. A word of warning, though - these size up very small. I am normally an 8-10 in tops, I got a 10 whereas really a 12 would have been better. I know they are meant to be close fitting but this one rides up and is hard to get on because it is over-tight. The size guide that comes up seems to be a generic amazon one, not a Gul-specific one, so it doesn't really help.

This is a serious and weighty topic, well handled and clearly presented. Very thought provoking, meticulously researched and truly well written. It is entertaining to read, which is a huge achievement for such a serious topic. Very highly recommended!

Touch and drag doesn't work very well and game is boring even for toddlers. There are better free apps out there!

2.0 out of 5 stars well written but painfully slow, 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Death of Eli Gold (Hardcover)
I ploughed through this novel (mainly because I was on a plane and didn't have anything else to read) but the going was painfully slow. The characters were not very appealing - they were not meant to be - which made it hard to engage with them and difficult to care what happened, and the slow pace of the plot meant that I kept reading more in the hope it would get to the point than because I really wanted to know what the point might turn out to be.

In its defence it was well written, but for me the characters unfolded relatively quickly and there was not enough plot to pad out the rest of the book
