2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 2 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The picture advertising the product looks more sturdy and as there is no indication in the description from what it is made I assumed that it was metal as I was seeking a solver one to match the wreath. It is plastic and rather flimsy and although its function is to be as inconspicuous as possible it's very plastic appearance makes it more prominent. I won't be using it and should have known that its low cost might reflect the very poorness of its outward show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive purchase, 22 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One again I purchase a fairly inexpensive book that can be easily be posted through my letterbox but it needs a signature. Consequently I miss the delivery (which was not the next day as requested/clicked on) and have to take time off work to be at ho9me to sign for it. This is the second time in less than a week. I shall consequently not be buying books again through Amazon!

Ah Couldnae Believe Ma Ears!: Classic Overheard Conversations

Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.59

The book was excellent but I saw no reason why this could not have simply been put through the letter box and that it required a signature. It was not of a great value or size and beause I was out I had to arrange another day delivery and I had to lose work (and money!) to be in to sign for it. This little volume has cost me more than I wished at the time if ordering it!

5.0 out of 5 stars OK, 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It does not quite live up to its TV promotion and I was disappointed that only one towelling cover is included and the other doesn't fit around the detachments. It is very good on floors and tiles but its use to clean venetian blinds, chrome and loos was less impressive.

This review is from: A Certain World (Paperback)
The book remains one of the most exceptional commonplace books ever published. This paperback version although adverts tied as used was in such a fragile condition that most f the pages fell out as I read it. Not value for money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting., 12 July 2012

The writer has a passion for the subject and writes with enthusiasm but little literary skill. It is too much of a diary of facts, opinions and ideas rather than a serious historical account. An undergraduate type first draft prior to writing the full paper.

The account was self indulgent fan based writing. The author's research limited and poorly expressed. Overall a unimaginative account. It is an extended Facebook entry.

I have purchased a Phillips headphone set and this works well with them, so it was not a waste of money after purchasing the disappointing Jaybird Freedom headphones.
