Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not had a problem with mine (unlike others on here). Fast transfer. Looks are average but so what! Put some music on it and plugged it into the car, played great. It works so I am happy. I will update the review if things go wrong.

3.0 out of 5 stars Effective but painful!!!, 12 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The following review is written by Mrs O'Boogie - Nice looking piece of equipment. Well made, solid, easy to use. The massage/cleanser device is great and I would give that five stars. It is very easy to use, is not at all abrasive and leaves your skin feeling great. Unless you are used to waxing, plucking, threading or are a regular user of epilators you will find the epilating experience very painful. The hair has to be a certain length before you can use it and it is agony. I did small areas at a time and it tingled for ages after. I have used epilators before and I have waxed for a long time. This was still the most painful I have experienced. I did eventually manage one lower leg. I have dark, quite thick hair on my legs and it usually grows back after 2 weeks with waxing. It was over three weeks before it began to grow back. However It needs to grow before I could use it effectively again. I understand that the more you use it the better the results but I am not sure I could put myself through that once a month. It takes much longer than shaving or waxing. I used an attachment for the face and tried it on my upper lip, again very painful. I have had waxing and threading techniques used here, but this method left my skin very red sore and spotty for a few days. I will not be using the epilator again. This a very much a personal preference. The device does what it says on the box and does it effectively.

5.0 out of 5 stars Less violent than the previous model but still as effective., 29 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have been using the previous model for over a year now. I love it, does a great job. The only negative was it did the job quite violently! Big vibrations used to remove the plaque. This one is much gentler and quieter and I prefer it. The more molded head seems to get between the teeth better. Recommended.

Vax Floors and All Pet U86-PF-Pe Upright Vacuum
Price: £129.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, 29 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Beware if you have poor quality carpets!!! This Vax will suck the pile out along with all the muck. You get a really deep clean with this power machine. One living room and three moderate sized bedrooms and this Vax has to be emptied every other clean. Versatile and still powerful when you use the attachments. Surprisingly quiet for such an effective machine. I agree with the other comments about the flex holder being too low down for older people like my wife. Highly recommended.

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

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.
