3.0 out of 5 stars Covers too much in too little detail, 20 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Moderately enjoyable and informative but too many tiny chunks of information that don't seem to tell you much. For example, the timetables for people's daily lives in Japan are so generic that they might apply to someone living in England much of the time. As I'm reading on a Kindle the pictures and the travel guide maps aren't large enough to see properly. May be better in a hard copy book.

Does reasonable job but doesn't seem to last very well and gives off a lot of particles that irritated my eyes and sinuses.

Lovely, simple rendition but orchestral flourish at end just a little out of keeping with simple vocals of the start. Jennifer Lawrence sings very well and gives the vocals real feeling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasy at its best, 13 Oct. 2014

This review is from: Fragile Things (Kindle Edition)
Brilliant and imaginative, I loved every page. Each story keeps you guessing and wondering. Especially enjoyed the twist in the Sherlock Holmes story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heavy going but enjoyable, 13 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably like many people I decided to read the book having watched the film. The story is reasonable although the prose is rather heavy going and overblown. The perspective of the story is that a civilised man is superior to barbarians yet that is expressed in terms of being better at fighting in the end. This is clearly a story of its era and while the film is remarkably true to the book in many details yet they tell totally different stories. The film has to add a whole plotline not present in the book to justify the action because, I think, the massive slaughter that John Carter causes at the climax of the story, just so he can get the princess for himself, wouldn't be acceptable to a modern audience without some better justification. But it is an imaginative depiction of a fantastic world and for that very enjoyable.

Excellent film but certainly it's not the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Loud but easily muffled, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as an experiment at work as reception area not covered by radio receiver panic alarms for technical reasons. Hoped this might provide a working alternative for reception staff. While unbearably loud in the room it is set off in, a short distance away in other parts of the building you could hear nothing at all so effectively useless. I'm sure it works well outdoors but no use inside if any solid doors intervene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holds Firm, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this as I use a sit down peddle exercise bike and the floor is tiled. Despite vigorous peddling this mat kept exerciser in place on a smooth floor surface very well. Doesn't look elegant but does the job it is supposed to.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK at first but repetative, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tradewinds 2 (PC) (Video Game)
Did enjoy game on initial play through but quest lines are repetative and similar after a while. Some amusing jokes in dialogue but in the end not enough to keep me interested.
