5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book, 5 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Horsey Life (Kindle Edition)
I ordered this as a sample for my Kindle as I wasn't sure whether to buy the second hand copy or pay the (about 5) extra for the Kindle download. I read the sample and immediately ordered the full Kindle version so I could continue reading!
Simon has a very readable writing style and this is a fascinating account of his Horsey Life. If you like horses, you'll really enjoy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a fantastic account of an unusual childhood - well done Clare!, 19 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clare is a superb broadcaster and commentator and her personality really comes through in this book. As she tells her story you really feel that you have been shown a little taster of the unusual world she grew up in. Her love of horses and dogs comes through with every chapter. She writes in a lovely warm way, keeping the reader entertained throughout - it is a delight to read. I could not put this book down - it's a great 5 star read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great DAB radio alarm clock, 19 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This might not be the most attractive clock radio...in fact I nearly didn't buy it! However the others that I tried were too complicated to use as alarm clocks...
This has a nice clear (large) time display. You can alter the brightness easily to suit yourself. The medium setting seems perfect - not too dim and doesn't light up the whole room in the dark. The alarm is easy to set and you can turn off before it is due to sound with just one button press, which is a real bonus. The controls are on the top and the side and easily accessed. The sound is good and clear.
If you just want a DAB clock radio, this is ideal. I only gave it 4 stars as it's not very attractive, but it is very functional!


PURE Siesta, DAB/FM Clock Radio - White
PURE Siesta, DAB/FM Clock Radio - White

2.0 out of 5 stars Great radio but complex to use and poor clock display, 2 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This (the white one) is a great little clock radio in many ways:
It looks stylish, is lightweight, compact, has good DAB reception and the sound is good and clear.
But is let down by:
1. The auto dimming display. This is dim in good daylight but at night becomes almost unreadable unless you are very close to it. From the other side of the bed, it is unreadable at night.
2. Complex to set alarms.
It is not intuitive! You really do need to read the manual to do this. It requires several button selections to set the alarm and if you hesitate at all during the procedure it times out and you have to start again. To turn the alarm off before it sounds also requires several button selections.
We have other PURE DAB radios and they are great, but unfortunately this one does not live up to the standard.
