4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, 13 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Up to date and pretty full, with some interesting appendixes, e.g. on measure words and surnames, also standard forms of correspondence with model letters. A minor nuisance is that the page nos. are printed at the top in the middle of fhe page, which makes them harder to see and decipher. Also I found the Chinese-English bit rather time-consuming to use; I think it would have been better to do as some dictionaries do, number the radicals and refer directly to the numbers rather than the pages on which they appear.

2.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to follow, it goes too fast, 13 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hellish difficult to follow, the man speaks very fast. I had to keep stopping and looking at the characters; only then could I understand what was going on. It might be O.K. if you were brought up in a Chinese family, for instance from Hong Kong where they speak Cantonese; or if you were pretty advanced in your knowledge of the language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chinese Breeze series,The Third Eye, 10 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good. Can be read fairly fast, plot quite interesting, less common words explained in footnotes and listed at the end, vocabulary, I hope, likely to be useful for the Level 3 HSK exam.

2.0 out of 5 stars Roberts solar radio, 31 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Roberts DAB / FM Digital Solar Radio - Black The radio was delivered in good condition, but I find it very disappointing. I bought it hoping to use its solar power without mains electricity or continually getting new batteries, but the solar panel doesn't collect enough power to last more than a few minutes.
