Harry, A History: The True Story of a Boy Wizard, His Fans, and Life Inside the Harry Potter Phenomenon
Harry, A History: The True Story of a Boy Wizard, His Fans, and Life Inside the Harry Potter Phenomenon
by J. K. Rowling
Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.50

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull and annoying, 31 Jan 2014
It is slow, relies on pointlessly leaving the reader out of the loop until the end of chapters to build up "suspense", even though the people are real and in all likelihood wonderful, they come across as just really annoying.
Dull, dull, dull.

If you're a Harry Potter fan looking to devour every word, you'll starve.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good toy - DO NOT buy from here, 17 Oct 2012

These sorts of toys are great, but do not buy from this seller. The product was not as advertised, the quality is a lot poorer than other companies and - more importantly - the instructions do not match the pieces. I am yet to see how the product may turn out as it is taking a lot of guesswork.
Not worth it, buy somewhere else.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY!!!, 26 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The pictures are extremely misrepresentative of the actual product, for example the dark purple wetsuit actually turned out to be a pale, creamy pink on delivery.
Arguments with the seller are still continuing about whether I am to be given a refund on return of the pink wetsuit as it was not the product advertised. I have had to go elsewhere to purchase a wetsuit in the meantime.

Do not trust this seller or the product. I cannot emphasise how much of a nightmare this has been.


The Evolution and Extinction of the Dinosaurs
The Evolution and Extinction of the Dinosaurs
by David E. Fastovsky
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 49.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, entertaining, informative, 9 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brilliant book which I purchased for a 2nd year undergraduate palaeobiology module - and read twice before the module even started!

There is much more information than graduate level requires and an extensive list of references at the end of chapters which is incredibly helpful for coursework. However I would also encourage anyone with an interest in dinosaurs to get this book - it doesn't contain scientific jargon unnecessarily (or unexplained) and is beautifully written with imagination-provoking drawings.

It is a pleasure to read and gripping for anyone with an interest in Dinosaurs, and details how fossils are made and excavated, changes in the earth's surface and climate and many other details to flesh out the Dinosaur facts.

And if that's not enough it really helped my grade!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't know how I've managed without them!, 9 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Started looking at wrist rests as I started getting pains in pressure points on my wrist when typing - which, as a student, I do a lot of - instead of using them with a mouse.
Simply put, I don't know how I've lasted so long without these.

They are very comfortable and after a day I hardly noticed they were there at all. The surface is soft, which was very important as I have easily irritated skin.

The main plus of these was that I could get two and sit them either side of the mouse pad on my laptop. All other products designed for typing were long strips which would mean blocking the mouse. Just a note: they are non-slip on a desk but had to be blue-tacked in place on my laptop.

They were delivered quickly, even with free posting, and the quality is great for any price - just a bonus they're so cheap.
My wrists are now pain-free and typing is much easier and more comfortable. Just get them and you'll see it makes a big difference so quickly you'll be wondering why you hadn't got them before.


Henderson's Dictionary of Biology
Henderson's Dictionary of Biology
by Eleanor Lawrence
Edition: Paperback
Price: 24.83

4.0 out of 5 stars Generally very good, 23 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Covers many areas and has good detail and layout. Just a few things missing, but they were specific and I guess a dictionary can only hold so much. Use it as a first port of call and i don't normally need to look anywhere else.


A Dictionary of Ecology (Oxford Paperback Reference)
A Dictionary of Ecology (Oxford Paperback Reference)
by Michael Allaby
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars It could be useful..., 23 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This dictionary was recommended for my 1st year Undergrad Ecology course.
Not as in-depth as I would have liked, especially since it's supposed to be a specific topic instead of an edited down Biology dictionary. And it came with a massive mis-print.
However, I'm sure it will come in useful at some point, just not sure when that will be...
