1.0 out of 5 stars Would have been great if not for the side effects, 23 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an odd review as I am only giving one star but I would actually recommend these to many people.

This product caused me to have very unpleasant urinary side effects (persistent burning sensation). I had been trying a different brand of Garcinia which had high levels of caffeine in it and I thought it was the caffeine giving me those side effects. However, it appears that it is actually the Garcinia itself that is causing the problem; I know this because the side effects went away completely during the 2-3 day period between brands (i.e. when taking nothing), but came back immediately again after starting these (about an hour after taking the first tablet). I do have a sensitive bladder and therefore I would not recommend this product or any other brand of Garcinia to anyone who gets UTIs, or has bladder issues. For reference, I am a man aged 44.

It is such a pity as the product itself works in that it makes you feel full; I really struggled to finish only modest sized meals while taking them and I felt no urge to snack during the day or evening, which was amazing for me. This can only be good for weight loss although I wasn't taking them for long enough to know just how much I would have lost.

One piece of advice though; I would take one capsule before breakfast and one before lunch. I took one before my early evening main meal and found myself unable to sleep until about 2am as they do make you quite alert.

Sadly I can only rate it on my experience, hence the low mark.

So ultimately they were a waste of money for me and I wish I hadn't bought them now, but for a lot of people (who don't have the same medical issues as me) I imagine they may be quite good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great apocalyptic novel, 24 April 2014
This review is from: Flare (Kindle Edition)
I really liked this. I have read a lot of post apocalyptic fiction and this is definitely one of the best ones out there.

It is nice to sometimes read a different, more human and believable take on what a massive event might do to the population at large rather than about another horde of undead trying to eat brains.

I found the premise very plausible, there were no over the top action sequences that defied belief, and the characters had you rooting for them all the way.

The writing style was crisp and to the point, without unnecessary description, but on the other hand it painted the picture of a collapsing society very nicely. It is also good to have a British take on things too.

I am hoping for a follow up as I think there are more tales to be told from this world. Excellent book; highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality zombie fiction, 19 Oct. 2013
I don't understand some of the bad reviews for this. It is a well written, well translated zombie novel, which I found gripping.

Yes, it's not the most original premise ever in a genre overflowing with such titles, but what it does it does well and I will be reading the next instalment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping but gruesome, 4 Oct. 2013
I loved the idea of a "horror" Big Brother and that is what Iain Rob Wright has brought us here as a group of people find out that what they thought they had signed up for is not the case......

I read this in no time at all and couldn't wait to see what happened in each chapter. The writing style is as accessible as ever and it never ever feels like a chore. Although I liked the ending and the whole idea, I felt it was a little too gratuitous at times; "torture porn" as another reviewer on here calls it. When you discover that the housemates themselves are no angels it helps to mitigate the violence a little, but it was still most unpleasant at times.

It could do with a bit of amending though; in the middle of the book the number of housemates left is stated incorrectly on two occasions, leading me to retrace my steps to see if I had missed anything! I hadn't; the text was just wrong.

Definitely worth reading if you like a short sharp shock and love films like Saw or Hostel but I prefer my thrills a little less visceral!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced compulsive horror, 4 Oct. 2013
I love IRW's books and this one is no exception; a cracking zombie apocalypse horror which moves at breakneck speed. It isn't the longest book in the world but it certainly satsifies. And it's set in the UK too, which is a bonus.

Plot wise, it's not remarkably different from many other books in the same genre; after all, how many more variations on the dead coming back to life can there be? But what sets this apart is the writing style; easy but never dumbed down, graphic but never gratuitous.

Certainly a good place to start reading Iain Rob Wright books; also check out Sea Sick and The Final Winter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed bag, 20 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Updated review:

The sound cuts out all the time when listening to music on iPad. It's not like I have wandered off a long distance when it happens or anything, I will be sitting next to the iPad and the sound still dips out every 30 seconds or so, ruining the experience.

However, they seem to work fine on my Android tablet, so overall I would say they are OK as long as you don't have an Apple device!

That blue flashing light is irritating though, why does it have to be so bright?!

5.0 out of 5 stars More brilliance from Britain's finest band, 24 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Everyones Cup Of Tea (Audio CD)
Whilst viewing the stultifyingly boring fare on offer at the Brits this year, it got me thinking as to who would win MY Brit awards. However, it soon became obvious that it would rapidly become a one band show, with Best Album, Best Single, Best Band and the Lifetime Achievement Award all going to The Bitter Springs, surely Britain's best kept musical secret. In fact, virtually the only awards they wouldn't win would be the International one and Best Newcomer, as they have actually been around for the best part of two decades now, and for over ten years before that in their previous incarnation as The Last Party.

So, five years since their last album, they're back and this time they've made it a double! 26 tracks over two CDs, well over two hours of music, it brings together the singles and additional tracks released over the last few years, along with a host of brand new material.

The first disc is mostly a joyous pop romp, full of horns and harmonicas, glam stomps and riotous singalongs. From the brassy "Cruel Britannia" and "Garry Glitter Fan Convention" to the glorious choruses of "The Wounded" and "Your Leather Boots" and from the synth-laden Euro-pop of "And Even Now" to the sea shanty of "The Lifeboat Man", these songs have hooks that will snare you time and time again. There are slower moments too, the gentle Irish jig of "The Life and Not Entirely Uneventful Times of a McAlpine Fusilier" being one, along with the "sha la las" of "Harry Hippie".

The second Disc is a much more introspective affair, a mixture of acoustic and quiet electronic songs, underscored by the four part "Powerless". It is certainly cut from a very different cloth to the catchiness of the first disc. However, whilst there is more immediacy in the first collection, there is still much here to draw the listener in, from the creepy confessions of "Free to Kill Again" to the poignant "Our Ghosts" and "The Hospital Run" and the beautiful denouement of "A Temporary Hush".

Underpinning all of this are the lyrics of Springs' frontman Simon Rivers. Consistently brilliant, he deserves his place amongst top British wordsmiths such as Morrissey and Half Man Half Biscuit's Nigel Blackwell. In fact it has been many a long year since Moz has come up with anything as brilliant acerbic as "The Mollycoddled Laughs" ("Don't come to me with private health / prioritise by need, not wealth") or as insightful as "TV Tears". Rivers has a habit of continually surprising the listener with his words, whether it be the hilarious bestiality references of "My Life As A Dog In A Pigsty" ("I broke up with my fiancee / She caught me in bed with Beyonce / Beyonce was our dog's name") or in the indigestion suffered by the callouts of "The Lifeboat Man" ("another half eaten dinner", "where'd you put those Rennies, Davey?").

In fact I could take up pages and pages of this review, picking out lyrical gems that litter these songs; the resignation in "The Wounded" ("I thought I could waltz through life unencumbered") and the damning verdict on Jeremy Kyle like shows in the aforementioned "TV Tears" ("Do you think you can clear away this mess / with your lie detectors and DNA tests?"). There really are so many to pick out. Let's just hope that Rivers doesn't take his own advice in future as given in the epic "Don't Write A Song" ("we don't need to know your story / we'd all feel much better without it / keep it to yourself").

The brilliance in this album also lies in the fact that many of the songs are quite long, frequently over 5 minutes, but they very rarely outstay their welcome, and hold attention all the way through. The Bitter Springs' ability to move between different styles is also a strong point; the best records are those when the listener's favourite constantly changes, and this album certainly falls into that category.

Long double albums can be a challenge for the listener, but this is one of those that pays back the time put into it. The second disc in particular is less immediate and therefore may not be "Everyone's Cup of Tea" but persevere and you may find that you acquire a taste for it.

So, Coldplay, Ben Howard etc, do the right thing and send all your awards to The Bitter Springs, the real Brit winners...

5.0 out of 5 stars Put simply....one of the best albums I have ever heard, 8 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What I cannot work out is:

a) How come I did not spot this record when it came out in 2007 and;

b) How come no-one has reviewed it yet?

I ask because this is the most beautiful, sublime set of songs I have ever heard.

Many of the songs are built around haunting piano lines; the kind you might hear playing faintly from another room in a gloomy mansion. Occasionally the mood is lighter, such as on album opener "It Gets Better", with it's skewed sea shanty feel or the accordion of "Loves Money". Guitars are notable by their absence, except on the charming "No Accident" which has a gently plucked line underpinning it.

And the voice is incredible. A startlingly sweet baritone whose nearest comparisons would be Stephen Merritt, Brett Sparks or Neil Hannon with a touch of the drama of Rufus Wainwright thrown in. But, here's the clincher; despite all the aforementioned artists' brilliance, Knox's voice is better than any of them.

Lyrically, "Disaster" is quite dark but there is a dry humour often underscoring the songs. "Suddenly I find myself dancing / Oh how I hate dancing" croons Knox on the crushingly gorgeous "Lovescene". Elsewehere, on "You Should Be Shining My Shoes" Knox laments a nemesis who should be "serving somebody food". It's consistently brilliant. "Get to Know Your Neighbours" bounces along on keyboards of the electronic kind, and celebrates the misanthropes and unfortunates who may well live next door to you, from the girl who throws her baby in the rubbish to the boy who "walks away without a scratch" after blowing up a family home. In fact, one could pick out any number of brilliant couplets throughout this album.

People, there is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered here. Buy this album today, listen to "Lovescene", "Gone Old Days", the heartbeaking "Reminder" and "No Accident" and try telling me that you are not in the presence of a genius.

And to think, if my wife had not insisted on watching some air disaster programme on the Discovery Channel, I would have never seen the trailer for some other disaster show which had this album's title track as it's score. It immediately stood out; one Google of the lyrics later and I was here. Like I said earlier, I can't believe I didn't arrive earlier, but I am making up for lost time now.

An album that is dark, melancholy, beautiful, uplifting and life affirming. You don't want to let it pass you by.

This review is from: BDM Club Master Kit Bag (Misc.)
This bag is not really suitable for club kit unless you only have a couple of pairs of pads and bats. The first time we used it the zip broke and we now cannot close it. It needs to be bigger really. Our previous bag lasted twenty years, this one only managed one day!!!!!!

The best thing that can be said of it is that it is cheap.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing like as good as I expected, 5 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perhaps my expectations for this were too high. Sure, it cuts the really long hairs that grow into the centre of the nostrils but it has absolutely no effect on the hairs that grow closer to the skin. It also does not cut the hairs that grow up from the base of the nostril. You just can't get the device into the right position to trim them.

If you just want something to trim up the worst of your nose hairs then this may work for you but if you're a perfectionist like me who wants to see the nose almost free of hairs, then it doesn't satisfy.

It's a good idea but it just doesn't do the job for me. I'm going back to the tweezers!
