3.0 out of 5 stars 2 and a half stars, 27 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I liked the cover. It's beautiful.

The book...hmmmmnnn... well... The book is about five competitors who try to win a British baking competition.

I struggled to follow who was who.

It was a little predictable too and wasn't for me. Sorry.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
POSITIVES
=========
It looks good and a child wouldn't look disappointed if they received this as a gift.

NEGATIVES
=========
Once they'd used it they'd be disappointed.
The pens are not that good.
The app and coloured in pictures don't work most of the time.
It's overpriced for a poor colouring book.
It could have been so much better.
It should have been so much better.

OVERALL
=======
If it was in a poundshop I'd probably still avoid. Sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars we are al made of molecules, 26 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I had thought this was going to be like 'Will' off of Inbetweeners. The Inbetweeners - Series 1-3 - Complete [DVD] But it was better. Much better.

Stewart is a nerd. 18 carat nerd. He's socially awkward, eccentric and loves academia. Just like his dad who works at a TV station.
His mum dies and eventually he moves in with Caroline, a newswoman who works at the same station he does.

What's known as a blended family.

Caroline has a daughter: Ashley. She's not a nerd. She's into fashion and has her gay dad living in the guest house on their property.

So, that sets the scene. It's funny, very well written and a very easy read.

OVERALL
========
Well written and ideal for 13+

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for Fonzy, 26 May 2015
POSITIVES
=========
It's a well made, polyester money belt.
It can pack quite a lot without being too bulky.
It's quite cheap.
It's a traditional style.
Better than a huge bag.

NEGATIVES
=========
It doesn't look cool.

OVERALL
========
If you need a money-belt, this is fine. But remember you won't look like the fonz.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Few Things Every Good Bag Should Have, 26 May 2015
DURABLE
=======
I've had this bag for a while now and it's still in great condition. It's very durable and it's comfortable to carry around.

This bag is probably a little on the large size to use as a gym bag but it's great to use for travel and you can use it as a carry-on bag if you're flying.

SIZE
====
It's roomy and can actually tons. 60ltr is big. I can fit a week to 2 weeks worth of clothes in it.

FLAT
====
When you're storing the bag it can easily be flattened. Or folded if necessary without ruining it.
It's good for camping and holidaying.

OVERALL
=======
Well made, good value and is one to add to your shortlist when looking at this type of bag.

5.0 out of 5 stars super duper, 26 May 2015
WELL MADE
=========
It's sturdy and well made. Looks OK.

EASY
====
It's easy to use and easy to read the display.

OVERALL
=======
I have owned several digital thermometers over the years and would not cook without one. (Especially BBQ-ing)
This does the job, is reasonable value and is well made. If you're after a food thermometer this should be on your shortlist.

4.0 out of 5 stars dream cafe, 25 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The book is full of 'marketing speak' which many people detest. That said, if you're in the industry then you'll hear this all the time.

It's both a guide if you want to innovate, and it's also full of contemporary examples of what works and what doesn't. (e.g. Green and Black chocolate is still successful despite being owned by Mondelez (kraft) )

It's not a book you can read in one sitting, but it's informative, interesting and very readable.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Duper Clips, 25 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
LOADS OF USES
==============
So far I've used them to hold paper together and it did it exceptionally well. To keep food fresh: on an open bag. And then for helping with crafts.

GOOD GAME
=========
As there are 100 in the container there's too many for normal uses. So I would regularly put them on my family members coats, cardigans, tops just before they went out. They'd invariably get told, "There's a clip on your top.." Then I'd get a text, "VERY FUNNY! ..." And it would make me laugh.
Not the most interactive of games but it's fun nonetheless.

WELL MADE
=========
No duds amongst the 100 clips.

STRONG
======
They are quite strong. Certainly strong enough to hold several papers together.

GOOD VALUE
==========
Just over 10p each [May 2015]. Given their strength and versatility they're really good value

5.0 out of 5 stars made me cry, 25 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It is a wonderful début novel.

It's a book of sorrow, regret,love and hope.

There's an honesty to the writing, and I think it captures the time well. I can remember the 1990s AIDS scare.

It's classed as YA as there's no swearing, no sex, but it does have passion. It's well written and I can't wait to watch the eventual film.

3.0 out of 5 stars 560 pages - What makes someone a good person? Is life worthwhile?, 25 May 2015
This review is from: The Heart Broke In (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It started so well. There were some parts that the writing was simply awesome. The writing was.. wow! This is going to be good.

By halfway it wasn't gripping me. It could be me, as there are lots of glowing reviews. I found it a little depressing after reading.

I'd probably say the opening chapter is perfect. And then there's only one way to go.. not perfect..

I just wasn't for me. Try it and tell me what you thought in my comments below.
