5.0 out of 5 stars I happened to come across this book while studying English ..., 4 Dec. 2015
I happened to come across this book while studying English Literature at Cambridge University, and in all my time there this was the most interesting and genuinely revelatory of all the works of literary theory I read. The person who has given this book a two-star review, saying it's "too minutely textual", doesn't appear to understand how literary criticism works.

Could not be happier with this. Using it to keep all my clothes in while backpacking around the Americas, and it does everything it says it does perfectly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Scroll wheel broke, 9 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The scroll wheel broke after about six weeks of use. It wasn't dropped or anything, it just broke -- still clicks but won't scroll. It also takes a while to get used to the shape, which has a raised rest for the ring finger. Still not sure I like that. Otherwise though the mouse works great, so two stars despite breakage, which might well not happen to other purchasers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tear easily, 19 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These do the job sound-wise, but two of them had torn vertically from the top within a couple weeks of buying them, rending them unusable. My previous pair of earphone tips, made by Shure (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Shure-PA910-Black-Sleeves-Earphones/dp/B000NDMJVW/ref=pd_sim_ce_5), lasted me well over six months before showing any signs of wear. They had a securer fit than these ones, too.

EDIT: I originally gave these two stars, but have now lowered the score to one as, in the time since I wrote the foregoing, another two of them have developed tears. I should make clear that this is not a matter of my having mishandled them: the material just gives out in the course of normal use. Maybe I just got a bad batch...

5.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous value, 19 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Massive bag. Non-permeable, in short term at least. Same price as you'd pay for a bag of twelve crappy little balloons in a shop. Only downside is that the openings are slightly too big for certain nozzles, so you have to hold them in place carefully, risking leakage while they're inflating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive quality, 19 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When these arrived (in timely fashion) I was pleasantly surprising by how high the quality of them was. They seemed like they ought to have cost several times as much. They are comfortable and give you a feeling of greater strength and control. Since I've started using them (for resistance weights lifting) I've stopped getting wrist fatigue, and, as you'd expect, also stopped getting callouses on my palms.

My only reservation is that the finger cut-offs could be a little longer: I've now started getting slight callouses just below the first joints of a couple of my fingers, instead of where I used to get them (at the top of the palm, just below the fingers). These are much more minor than the prior ones, though, and are only caused by certain lifts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff, 27 Mar. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All perfectly functional, unobjectionably designed. Also, very slim and lightweight, which make it very convenient for casual use. The mouse is nice and solid with useful forward/back buttons on the side, and a good scrollwheel. Only complaint is that I wish the hotkeys on the keyboard could be reprogrammed.
