5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for Asian style cookery., 3 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love this pan. Really ,really non-stick and distributes heat very evenly on my ceramic top stove. Find it especially good for risotto/paella rice dishes. Also like the size (26cm) as it is neither too big nor too small to handle easily and can hold a substantial amount without seeming over full . Great value.

3.0 out of 5 stars Seven???, 26 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not seven. That's where this went wrong. It wasn't the same story that we've been following since the coming of the Romans in the Lost Hero. That story pretty much ended in the last book. This is almost a new story altogether, Reyna's story. Oh it has points of contact with the main storyline and obviously the conclusion of the quest is here but it's very weak compared with what went before. And it has really gaping holes because of that. TWO 'manaical' parents? One would have been pushing it. Ah well, these things are ever thus and how many final episodes ever live up to their billing?

2.0 out of 5 stars This is the way the world ends...., 26 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes, sadly I think the world Pratchett fans have loved for so many years is close to its end. And it is going with a whimper rather than a bang. Yes, this book was always a bolt-on not a new story and I bought it with that knowledge firmly in mind. And for a couple of chapters I thought maybe it would be okay, a sort of Nanny Ogg's cookbook or similar. But it wasn't. Not only was it boring and not funny at all it was barren. All the magic is gone - in every sense. They say all good things come to an end and if this book is any guide we've come to it on Discworld. It's been a great ride while it lasted and TP gave us all huge pleasure. Thanks!

5.0 out of 5 stars The old ones are the best!, 5 Oct 2014
My grandchildren (and my husband) had a wonderful time with these this summer. Old-fashioned? Yes and none the worse for that because they provide hours of 'old-fashioned' exercise for children of all ages. Highly recommend.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Catch It Cone - Pack of 2 (Toy)
I wasn't sure if my grandchildren (7, 6 & 4) would like this, especially the 6 year old who has a disabling level of autism. Fact is, he adored it and they all had hours of fun with them this summer. If you are looking for something a bit different to the modern style of toys, these are great (my husband loved it too). Good price as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... I give this book indicate a return to the good old days of Carl Hiaasen's older works, 2 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't think that the five stars I give this book indicate a return to the good old days of Carl Hiaasen's older works. It needs to be kept in mind that this book is aimed at the young adult market (not at hardened old cynics like me). As such it delivers a five star story that is entertaining for all ages and genders referencing as it does very well many previously explored themes and characters. It is funny, extreme and yet deals with real issues. I like the way the fantasy element of the story is firmly tethered to real consequences at the end of the book with life being changed forever even though, as always with Hiaasen, the main protagonists seem to escape serious consequences. If you're expecting a full-blown novel, don't read this but if you're looking for a light-hearted read from a favorite author then go for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good quality hat, 10 Aug 2014
Bought all sorts of summer caps over the years (my husband is completely bald and works outside a lot). This is up with the best I've found, nice fabric, good fit. Price and delivery time both okay as well.
