5.0 out of 5 stars Good read, 18 July 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The midwife's labour and birth handbook is a really useful book if you are a midwife, student or want to be a midwife. It contains just about everything you need to know about labour and birth. Very graphic photos, so I wouldn't recommend for first time mums-to-be! The book goes into great detail of everything, although there are no photos of Caesarean sections, which would have been a nice addition. There is however very detailed diagrams for suturing, both right and left handed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful sim!, 9 July 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Camping Manager (PC DVD) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Obviously I expect you to be aware of what kind of games you like to play. If you're not interested in playing first-person shooters and getting owned by twitch-triggered teens and prefer a more laid-back style of game, you should consider this.

There is no edge-of-seat excitement, there is only a campsite and you running it. Campaign mode puts you in each different country in turn with a set of objectives to meet, whereas free mode gives you the choice of where to play and endless time to do so.

You get to micro-manage practically everything from the price of the coffee to when there are barbeque events in your campsite. Trying to keep everyone happy is no easy feat, for example, everyone gets up in the morning and runs to the toilet, so they all start the day complaining about how dirty the toilets are! Just like real life, there really is no pleasing some people.

Overall, simple to get into and straightforward to play. An excellent way to pass a few hours here or there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little item, 15 Nov 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well the build quality is fine, obviously being plastic it can't take a lot in the way of being hit or dropped, but you'd really have to be trying to to actually break it.

Lights nicely, the LEDs make it very energy efficient and the batteries last far longer than incandescent bulbs would.

Very nice indeed.

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice idea, 6 Jun 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
While it lacks the variety of something like Construction Simulator, Airport Fire Fighter Simulator really only aims to pleaase those who've thought about doing this job in real life.

Airport fans will be pleased with the different missions and the general layout of the levels, and the rest of us will take from it what we can. Just remember there is nothing hidden or special about this game, it is what it says it is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Odd yet fun, 3 Jun 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'd seen the names of a few of these simulator games floating around but this is the first one that really grabbed my attention. It's pretty much exactly what it says on the box - a construction simulator. The first mission is all about building a garage. First you dig the foundation, drive the excavated earth to a dump, then use a crane to place the pre-fab pieces in place. It was my first go and I took a while to get used to the controls, but after I had everything - literally - fell into place.

If you have the patience for a slow game that is exactly what it says it is, then you should try this out. I'm not disappointed with it, and you won't be either.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really for me., 26 April 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I did find this a little uninteresting to be honest, it helped me pick up a few things but is just not my style of learning.

The lack of reading material with it was a bit of a let down, as reading Mandarin is the most challenging and exciting (at least for me) aspect. There are only CDs in the set and nothing else.

This review is from: Claymore Vol 1 & 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I did enjoy watching this anime but I did find it a little violent for my tastes. If that's the sort of thing you like, this is probably for you.


The Last Story Limited Edition (Wii)

5.0 out of 5 stars The best game on the Wii*, 26 April 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
*at least in my opinion.

The Last Story is one of the best games on the Wii, and certainly one of the best Action RPGs outside of the Zelda franchise.

If you have a TV that is bigger than 26" you might not be too impressed with it visually, but the story and characters are more than enough to make up for it.

A must buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great size and a decent price, 26 April 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well this is exactly what it says it is - 16GB of solid state storage for whatever you may need to back up or transport. Keeps everything safe and even includes software to encrypt files for extra security.

Recommended for backing up photos while on holiday, but you'd need a PC to transfer from your camera to it of course.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent shaver, 11 Nov 2010
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
You certainly get what you pay for and this is no exception. An electric shaver with excellent build quality that delivers a smooth shave every time. The ergonomic handle makes shaving that little bit easier and even enjoyable - especially when you've upgraded from a much cheaper model (as I did). You definitely notice the difference. I will always be hesitant about wet shaving with an electric razor due to past experiences with another Philishave model that was designed for shaving with lotion, so dry is always my preferred method. If it works, why change?

Quite simply, a joy to shave with.
