Heinz Cadbury Chocolate Sponge Pudding 310G
Heinz Cadbury Chocolate Sponge Pudding 310G

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best, 28 Nov 2014
The best chocolate sponge pudding available - and generally one of the cheapest. Ideal with a serving of vanilla ice cream and some fresh rasperries.

Excellent value - 3 nicely designed models and lots of replay value.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea - shame about the quality, 20 Oct 2014
We ordered 11 bulbs. Illumination is good, but not quite as bright as the 40w halogens they were bought to replace.

Three of the bulbs failed within the first few days - one of the burn-outs required us to replace the lightswitch of the circuit it was connected to. We removed all the bulbs and the company (phigoning) refunded the purchase price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rambling with little point, 1 Aug 2014
The book consists of several threads, one on earth and two in space, however two of the threads (elephants and a mystery clue hunt) are dead-ends superceded by revelations in the third (leaving the reader wondering why they wasted several hours of life on chapters that go nowhere). The final mystery revelation is somewhat unlikely and out-of-the-blue also, giving a sense that the author had a vision of various set-pieces they wanted to put into a book but couldn't think of a way of connecting them together other than as sides-shows a rambling road-trip. Rather a disappointment really as Alastair Reynolds is an accomplished author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality at a good price, 29 July 2014

Excellent quality, as good as much more expensive "leading" brands. We've used it for 2 years now, gradually removing the safety bar and changing the seat and step heights as junior grows - it's still in good condition and has fitted well at all stages.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tedious and uninvolving, 29 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed the prequel "Black magician" series but found this (and the two subsequent volumes) a let-down. The plot ambles along with little sense of urgency or peril, feeling like a diary of the characters actions and leaving the reader quite uncaring as to any of their fates. Two simultaneous tales unfold, however they don't really interconnect and either could have been dropped without affecting the other noticeably. A sub-plot about homosexual persecution is dropped into the mix (for no apparent reason) but it just feels like a clone of many similar contemporary storylines without any twist or originality to make it interesting.

Earth Strike (Star Carrier, Book 1)

2.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for action fans - but nobody else, 29 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Extremely plot-light, the book consists of two extended action sequences linked by a miniscule amount of back-story. If you enjoy full-throttle action and are happy with wafer-thin cut-out characters from central-casting then this will make your day - but if you want anything thoughtful or (even slightly) sophisticated then give it a miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for the office, 29 July 2014

Powerful (for its size) and quiet. Mindful of the other reviews about excess vibration I keep mine on the (carpetted) floor and have no problems at all - it's inaudible over the hum of a nearby PC.
