Treachery
Treachery
Price: £3.99

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit too movie-like, but a pleasant reading nonetheless, 29 Nov. 2015

This review is from: Treachery (Kindle Edition)
Treachery
First of all, let me say that I am an idiot because I thought this was the first book of the Giordano Bruno's series, but it turned out to be the 3rd- My mistake. In any case, it's written in a way that, whenever they mention something (which I suppose) comes from the previous episodes, they always say something to keep you in the loop.
Talking about the novel itself, although the author's historical knowledge is beyond doubt, I feel that the novel could use some hints or further digressions into the historical moment for the reader to get a better introduction to the setting. As a comparison, C. J. Sansom in my opinion is way more capable of introducing facts without weighing the reading down.
Overall is a pleasant reading, quite tense in some parts, but in several occasions the author seems to eager to go for the dramatic and I just don't find that too appealing in a novel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Pirates series, good price, but why there are no EN subtitles?, 7 Feb. 2015

This review is from: Black Sails: Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Having a whole first season for £10 doesn't leave much space for complaints, but I was really disappointed when I found out there are no subs for English. Hence, I'm not leaving a comment about the show, which I like.. A LOT!, rather on the DVD package itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars It brought my passion for DT back, 30 Nov. 2014

This review is from: Dream Theater (Audio CD)
I stopped listening to Dream Theater right when Octavarium was published. They were my favourite band, but I really couldn't bear with their music and the trend they were following any longer. Portnoy abandoning the band was the final blow. This album, though, brought my passion back to the point of buying one of their cds after I don't know how many years. This is one of their finest album, in my opinion, A must-have for their fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good combo!, 27 July 2014

Amazing keyboard and mouse! The signal is awesome also if using them at some distance (a couple of meters). Can't say much about batteries life, since I've been using it only for a month.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good, 7 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cuff-links arrived promptly and they are even better than how they look in the images. Just one hint, the font they use by default is quite "strong", so if you're looking for something more stylish, it's better to ask them first! Anyway, I recommend both the product and the seller!

If you need a really good and detailed introduction to Portuguese trade in South-East Asia from its inception until the 18th century, that's the book for you. Good narrative and detailed information about the sources.

As for now I've only had an issue with this product. When I registered it on the website, the code doesn't match with the product, as in the colour. In the website appears as Pink Orchid. As for the product itself, it is really amazing!
