Igenix IG9812 Large Portable Dehumidifier, 180 Watt, 12 Litre
Price: £129.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Portable and easy to move from room to room if necessary, 22 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fills up quickly at first but as the moisture is taken out the air they tend to find their own level and come on as and when. A little noisy if you are in the same room but they are not on all the time. Portable and easy to move from room to room if necessary. It is also has an air outlet for drying clothes. It has the option to fit a draining tube to run permanently if required (not supplied). A good unit that claims to be able to deal with a three bedroomed house. Certainly worked well in one bedroom where we had condensation. Highly recommended.


Tacwise 18G 50mm Brad Electric Nail Gun
Tacwise 18G 50mm Brad Electric Nail Gun
Price: £116.69

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong and sturdy and highly recommended., 22 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Presented in a nice, strong moulded mase which not only holds the nail gun, but also the user instruction manual and nail pack. It is well designed and is also biodegradable. There is also provision to padlock the case for security of the contents. The nails are easy to load, and the literature gives clear instructions about which nails should and shouldn't be used. It is sturdy and robust, but still lightweight enough for continued use, Having used a few different tools from the Tacwise range I generally rate them very highly, the 18G electric nail gun is no different. As with all their tools this one feels well made, performs well and is easy to use. On the safety side, there is no chance of nails being shot out as the point where the nails come out has to be pressed down on the spot where the nail needs to go. It comes with a substantial lead. The first thing to note is that for precision you need to press the trigger and at the same time apply some weight with the other hand on the body of the nailer as any slight recoil will mean that the nail is not flush with the surface and you would then need a hammer to finish off. Highly recommended.


In the Sea There Are Crocodiles
In the Sea There Are Crocodiles
by Fabio Geda
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and compelling read., 26 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The author is an Italian novelist who works with children who have suffered immense hardship. In his work, he came across sixteen year old Enaiatollah Akbari, originally from a small village south of Kabul, and now recently granted political asylum in Turin, Italy.

The author in a note at the beginning of the book calls this a work of fiction rather than a factual account as told to him by Enaiatollah. This is mainly due to the fragmented nature of the young man's memories resulting from the various traumas and events he went through, and the length of time covered in the story - some five or six years. He says it is a 'recreation' of Enaiatollah's experiences, with the journey 'painstakingly reconstructed'.

Written in a simple style, mainly in Enaiatollah's own words, it isn't a literary masterpiece but it is an incredibly powerful and compelling read.


Parallel
Parallel
by Lauren Miller
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Like 'Sliding Doors' but better., 26 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Parallel (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Parallel is a teen novel, but with deeper meaning. The parallel theory is just detailed enough to bring all of the pieces together without detracting from the main storyline, helping Abby find herself. A well-crafted, smart story about a young woman experiencing two parallel existences where she sees some life choices played out in different ways. It is enjoyable to get caught up in and allow yourself to think about how many ways your own life might have turned out. The author weaves fate into the narrative as well and comes to an interesting and satisfying conclusion. This book reminded me a lot of the movie Sliding Doors, but it was an much better story.

Daughter of A-list celebrity. Cameras pointing at you every time you step outside the door. Expected to achieve. Pressure pressure on the young life of Antigone, which is no life.

Easier to understand if you have read the first one in the series but works as a standalone novel. Part two in this fantasy trilogy. Amusing, exciting, great fun for the grandchildren! Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy set up and hassle free updates., 26 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
No disc, just a web address and a code to input. I don't have a problem with downloading from a website like some others appear to do. The one advantage is you get the latest version straight away. I have been using Mcafee for some time now and much prefer it to the freebies. Easy to install and hassle free updates. The freebies did the job (or appeared to for me) but updates and avoiding paying the optional subscription was such a hassle. Concerned to read that one reviewer on here had a bad experience with a virus that Mcafee did not catch. I have had no such trouble and am happy to recommend this software.
