1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money, buy the Inquisition cards., 11 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought the first Inquisition deck of cards by Dark Horse, I saw that there was a DA2 set so I bought these too. I wish I hadn't bothered as the gulf in quality and design between the two is vast.These are shiny, thin, cheap feeling cards. A cheap 'linen finish' deck of cards from any newsagent looks and feels better in quality than these. They certainly don't feel sturdy enough to cope with a great deal of use.

As for design, I was expecting the beautiful style of Dragon Age II on each card, again in the way the DA:I cards have. Instead, the numbered cards are the same as any other deck (save for some antiqued, tea-stained colouring), with the picture cards disappointingly having only the character concept images that don't fit particularly well with the eventual game or the final characters. Too cartoonish, not making nearly enough of the unique art of the Dragon Age series.

If you liked the art of Dragon Age 2, buy one of the World of Thedas books rather than getting these.

5.0 out of 5 stars All kids bright and challenging, 4 Feb. 2010
This book is indispensable for anyone with (or interacting with) bright and challenging children. From the first page it's clear that the authors know their stuff and have a great deal of experience with such children and give excellent, solid advice for coping with a great range of situations that most parents of 'B&C' children have to face.

Absolutely essential reading, I'd recommend it to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keeping me human for almost three years., 14 Sept. 2009
I received one of these as a Christmas present almost three years ago and it's still going strong. For the first 18 months I used tap water but now I only use filtered or bottled water with it (as I moved to a very hard water area and I'm not going to push my luck) and it's still working well. It's easy to use, easy to keep clean and has generally been a cracking little machine.

The only reason I gave it four stars rather than five is because the gap between the filter holder and the drip tray isn't really large enough to accommodate a normal sized mug so you either have to use a shorter cup or take the cover off and let the mug sit in the drip tray.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful., 4 July 2007
This is a nice little camera if you're not expecting miracles. I received this as a Christmas present and have had great fun with it as my first video camera.
It does have its drawbacks: the picture quality isn't brilliant and it has particular difficulty with low light levels so isn't much use indoors; the sound quality is reasonable but the built in microphone isn't particularly strong and there is a fair bit of background noise; it does seem to run out of power very quickly, there have been times when the red light has flashed and the camera switched off only to switch it back on half an hour later and be greeted with two bars and a few more minutes filming.
It also has many things in its favour: it's small, neat, lightweight and comes with a soft case with a clip to attach it to your person; it's pretty easy to use (although easier if you read the instructions); it can take video, still pictures and audio and stores them in formats that virtually any computer will recognise.

All in all it's a great little camera if you want it to take a few snaps and record moments for posterity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buried Treasure., 24 Nov. 2006
Some may see the Lost Disc edition as a way for Disney to get more money from devoted fans and customers but in essence they are giving us what we want. The film itself is brilliant; fun family entertainment. If you like your extras then this boxset has plenty beginning with a plethora of commentaries on the first disc featuring the cast, writers, producer and director. The second disc has features on everything from the gag reel and the deleted scenes to Jerry Bruckheimer's photo diary and the diary of the ship that 'played' the Interceptor. Look out for the Easter Eggs on the second disc too as there is a brief interview with Keith Richards, the inspiration for Captain Jack Sparrow. The Lost Disc includes more features on the cast and characters with some nice history about the Disney ride that the film was inspired by. In all if you like fun adventure stories then this is the film for you. If you like featurettes, interviews and other extra bits then this is definitely a boxset to invest in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whale Adventure, 3 Aug. 2006
I think this book is a brilliant yet different addition to Willard Price's Adventure series. Unlike a fellow reviewer's (frankly ridiculous) idea that this book is inappropriate for young readers of today I think it is important to see this in its proper context. There are many subjects now deemed unacceptable that should not just be deleted from history. This is a story about a barbaric industry and the horrific conditions in which it was conducted. The particular boat in this story was outdated at the time it was written and the savage brutality of whaling was in no way sugar coated by Price. It's not the most attractive story in the canon but it isn't meant to be. Literature should not be updated every time a subject falls out of favour. Perhaps Moby Dick could be turned into a thrilling whale watching adventure with Captain Ahab searching for the elusive white whale in order to shoot a documentary about it. This book may not be politically correct but it still has some worth while things to say. Our society was built on industries such as this, we may have progressed but we should remember where we came from.
