LABOUR CAMP FOR IMMIGRANTS IN GREAT BRITAIN -- A True Story
LABOUR CAMP FOR IMMIGRANTS IN GREAT BRITAIN -- A True Story
Price: £2.22

1.0 out of 5 stars Pidgin English, 7 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is hard for me to write a review of this book because I simply cannot read it! Judging from the name and the content I am guessing the author is Polish. It is very brave and ambitious of him or her to try to write a book in what is not their native language but it renders it almost completely unreadable. This is not to say the book is bad. It MIGHT be fantastic if written and read in Polish. But the fact it is written in pidgin English completely overshadows anything it may have to offer.

The author really should have written and published this in their native language, or at least got an English friend to collaborate with them so it could be read smoothly by and English person. I think it would be even more of a struggle for one of the author's fellow Poles to try and read the book if they also aren't fluent in English.

I am sad as I was looking forward to reading it but it needs to be re-translated into the author's native tongue or edited with an English speaker so as to make it readable. I hope that happens as I would like to read the book. As it is now, I can't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value For Money, 7 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are excellent value for money. They are very accurate. I tested them by weighing coins 1p, 2p, 10, 20p, 50p etc as it is easy to look up their weight online and these were right each time. They are small and you can tell they are a bit fragile. If you drop them on the floor then say good bye. But for £4.99 and no postage charge you can't expect more than what you get here. They are in fact worth more than what I paid.

These are perfect little scales for light usage. Compact, nice looking. Very accurate and cheap as chips. They even come with batteries included so they work right out of the box. I definitely recommend them. As long as you are careful with them and don't bang them around they are brilliant and I can't see any room for complaint for under a fiver.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Grinder, 29 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first grinder I have used but I have really put it through its paces the last few days grinding up some really touch nuts and stuff with rock hard shells and it has done a brilliant job. Its an excellent addition to the kitchen and can't be beaten for the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars More Robust Than It Looks, 21 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good little device for the price. Mine finally gave up the ghost after a couple of years but I had tried grating garlic and other stuff in it. For cheese it is fine. NO PROBLEM TO CLEAN! JUST USE BOILING WATER!! Handy to have around the kitchen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasing, 17 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been reading Dean Koontz since I was about 12 years old. He has always been my literary version of a favourite sweater or comfort food. Enough action and surprises and twists to be exciting but you know that good is going to win and nothing will ruin your day. I am just past half way through Odd Thomas and I am enjoying it but it is a bit slow going. Also, some of his other stuff. He does seem to have turned into a bit of a 'churner' now. As though he has lost his passion for writing but has been doing it so long he can't kick the habit. I am liking this and I also wish he would do another Christopher Snow book but most of his other stuff over the last few years has been in a bit of decline. He needs to get his fire back. I hope he isn't writing now just to get paid. He surely has enough money and his lifelong fans deserve more than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Case and Perfect for Purpose., 8 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is great. Just a few quid and it protects my Kindle perfectly. It's fits exact and it just what I needed. No need to spend more on a branded version or anything flashy.

I sometimes like to take it off when I read in bed so it is less bulky but it is not needed there anyway. It's was a great buy and I would definitely recommend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Story out of Razzle, 29 Sept. 2012

This is just some semi-paedophilic story like something you would read in a pornographic magazine that ends in a prdictable twist that is there to try and give it some merit as a real book.

This is a 2 page pamphlet telling you about as much as you can learn from looking up 'amphetamines' in a dictionary. It is the kind of pamphlet you get from a doctor's surgery and NOT worth the money. Do not buy this.

1.0 out of 5 stars UTTER RUBBISH, 28 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Total and utter tripe. It looks nice and the headphones are OK but the battery life is about 4 hours and the one I got lasted 2 days, then the screen bled black and grey and it was completely kaput.

Compared to other MP3 players the controls are also so completely, absurdly, unnecessarily tricky to use. It is a joke. If I could have given this 0 stars I would have done

4.0 out of 5 stars Works Well, Last Long, 14 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had these just over a year and they are as good as new. You aren't going to blow the roof off with them but as a set of PC speakers they are really good. Solid, long lead, headphone jack. Everything you need. If mine broke now after a year I would happily buy the same model again. They are well worth the price and sound, well, sound :)
