Garage door defender lock Highest ratio quality and price!!!
Garage door defender lock Highest ratio quality and price!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor quality and design - the defence does not even ..., 24 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very poor quality and design - the defence does not even go up to the garage door so instead is swivels around. And as another reviewer says, the actual padlock (when locked on) is stiff and it's a struggle to turn it open and off. Yet the hole the padlock goes through is small and circular meaning it is specific to this padlock = no other padlock can be used.

Steer very clear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Birth of Adventure, 13 May 2012
This review is from: Misadventure (Paperback)
The striking thing about the poems in Misadventure is that in their quiet world of waiting, hoping and remembering, the yearning voices have a resounding truthfulness. Whether it's gardening, birth or death, there's a sense our deliberations over them can be so futile. Clear and very powerful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Job Breakthrough!, 20 April 2012
Sixteen of the clearest and simplest principles have led to me getting several interviews and call backs in a matter of just one month from this little number.
Seling your key points concisely, it's also great to finally rid your CV of the verbiage that stops potential employers easily spotting just what you might be able to do for them.
Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS BIKE LIGHT, 23 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The bike light arrived in good time but the actual design of this product has a basic, obvious, fundamental flaw - the bracket that attaches the light to the bike handle bar is far to big and has no mechanised capacity to get any tigher onto the handle bar. Also, even if you were happy to have the light swinging a full 360 degrees around your handle bar, the fact that the screw has nothing to screw and secure into will not even allow this pointless attaching.

Avoid this product at all costs. I'm returning mine.


BÍte De Jour: The Intimate Adventures of an Ugly Man
BÍte De Jour: The Intimate Adventures of an Ugly Man

4.0 out of 5 stars Elephant Man meets Adrian Mole, 25 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Born of a blog, Cattermole's book moves smoothly from screen to page by being well paced, neatly crafted & displaying an astonishing skill for natural dialogue. Add that it doesn't merely hold your attention but is totally gripping in its account of a man whose penetrating intellect, sensitive nature, honest introspection & big warm heart count for nothing behind his self-declared monstrously ugly head.
To call it a modern day reworking of Frankenstein wouldn't be mere hype for the work of an extraordinary skilled writer whose true-life creation travels longingly for the things many of us take for granted. And along the journey we laugh & weep with an unfolding realistic family drama that cannot but help make us see reflections of our own thwarted desires within the uneven contours of the hero-author's face. Stan Cattermole's a literary name to watch for while his face remains an appropriately mysterious one to only imagine.


In the Country of Last Things
In the Country of Last Things
by Paul Auster
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars End of the World is Nigh, 23 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In the Country of Last Things is a stark & compelling vision of the future where a government's only real contribution to society is ensuring the corpses are swept clear from the streets. This very fragile hold on the name of 'authority' is in a world where people scavenge for the tiniest morsels be it food or possessions. The scramble from murder & the harshly unpredictable weather is all documented in the present tense via diary entries by Anna who bases it all around a search for her lost brother. Her episodic reports powerfully convey the immediacy & urgency of flimsy institutions where vague structures struggle for permanancy. Above all, Auster's unflincinhg, taut text finally delivers the blow of a futile narrative that is doomed to being an open ended suicide note. Hard hitting stuff.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, Flawed but Enjoyable, 2 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Julie Christie (Hardcover)
It's hard to swallow a biography that kicks off by getting the age of its subject categorically wrong. But if you can get over that & other glaring errors then this is an insightful account of possibly the most naturally talented, beautiful, loyal, principled, down to earth & sought after actress Britain has ever produced. Christie's journey from birth in India, early development in the south east & London, Hollywood stardom & then simplicity in Wales is well told. Clarity is also given to the girl who openly defied yet became inextricably linked to being one of several ultimate icons of the swinging 60's. However it's always going to be difficult for biographers to get anywhere near the heart of a person who effortlessly found fame, shuns celebrity culture yet pops back with ease into the limelight whenever she chooses. Despite this, we do learn more about the actress but not the woman who defined a sexual era.
