5.0 out of 5 stars Kept me reading - good book., 11 May 2014
This review is from: Salt (Paperback)
I should start by saying I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this in kindle format before general release in return for an honest review.

It's very different from ' The Techxorist' series, but has similarly strong characters that are likeable.

When I started the book, my first thought was that it was too similar to 'The Rain' by Joseph Turkot, but that didn't hold for long, it's actually very different in terms of the kind of story they are, although both are based on the premise that the world is under water.

Eva is a well rounded, well thought out character as are most of the characters, some of whom I loved and rooted for, some I couldn't care less what happened to them.

Eva starts by investigating a murder as she used to be in the police force, but as the book goes on this turns into an investigation of a suspected conspiracy.

I enjoyed the book and had a good guess at who the bad guy was, the ending was left open for another book I felt, but there wasn't anything within this story that was unanswered, so I don't feel like I have to buy the next book (although probably will).

The only thing I perhaps didn't enjoy, was it was another book where the human race is reduced to a few hundred people and yet there are certain people to whom the power struggle is more important. Not sure I get that, but then not sure I'd be someone struggling to survive under such hopeless circumstances.

If you enjoyed 'The Techxorist' and other books like 'Wool', then I'm sure you'll enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars good job so far, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So far so good. I'm using them whilst jogging for about 30 mins. They go in and stay in, rather than the normal ear buds I was using before which fell out every other minute. The sound is as good as any other ear buds, obviously will never be as good as full over the ears headphones. The swivel part is very useful as it really helps make these comfortable. They block out virtually all road noise, so you have to be careful. A good purchase, I think.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent for looking after apps, 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the way it shows the last installed app first, also like being able to launch a app to check what it is before deleting.

Not sure I understand the delete options completely, but there's probably a help file I haven't read.

3.0 out of 5 stars worked fine on nexus 4, 13 Oct 2013

This review is from: Chess Pro 3D (App)
I'm not terribly good at chess and even the newbie level seems a little aggressive. With animation on its a bit difficult to see what you're moving and where too, but with it off, you tap, a square gets highlighted and then you tap again where you want to move to. Press pause to get options - revert is undo!

If I was better at chess I would enjoy this more, but it seems to work.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I've read for ages..., 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Enjoyable, silly, heart wrenching, serious, thought provoking, daft, hilarious and brilliant.

This book had me gripped, I loved the characters, the ideas, the plot. It reminded me in some way of Tom Holt. Can't wait to see if there's another book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, 20 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zombie, Inc. (Kindle Edition)
I don't usually read Zombie books, but this one was free when I got it and I thought it sounded as though it would be amusing - which it was in places, but was also serious, thrilling, upsetting and above all gripping. Not much gore, for which I'm grateful and in some ways the Zombies are secondary to the story about Dill and Carl. I didn't want it to end and I couldn't stop thinking about it afterwards - it was great!

(08) Brown Bear Style Excellent Quality Animal Hat with Paws (Adult/Child).

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good, 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really like this hat, because it's nice and warm and if you throw a snowball at it it doesn't get wet unless you do lots. Arms are the right length for me to put my hands in the paws. It's fluffy.

Review by 10 year old daughter owner of hat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well with the ice pop maker, 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A little expensive for what it is made of, but it's great to have spares for the Zoku. I freeze e.g. a whole bottle of frijji, and put the extra's in a freezer bag i the freezer for an even quicker treat. Remember to run the lollies under cold water for a few seconds though, they get really icy and we've had tongue's stuck to them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great device, 20 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't set it up - my husband did, but he said it took very little effort, worked basically out of the box. The sound is good, the signal is good, the functionality is good - took a little while to work out how to use the alarm, but that was the only (small) problem.

You can control this radio with an app on your phone, which means that as we bought 2 of these for our children, we can turn down their music from downstairs!
