The Luminaries
The Luminaries

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £7.00

2.0 out of 5 stars Big Disapointment, 10 July 2014
This review is from: The Luminaries (Hardcover)
The book as mentioned in several other reviews is too long, is far too complicated and I don't know how it won the booker prize. There are too many characters and I didn't feel drawn to any of them. Descriptions of life in a frontier gold town was good, but the pace was slow and I felt like giving up many times. Disappointing ending and unlikely that I will read any more of Eleanor's books. Sorry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good protection but, 15 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item arrived in time and fitted well. However, the only drawback as mentioned on other reviews is the magnetic clip. Magnet is not strong enough and therefore flip part opens too easily. If they sort out this problem then it would be worth 5 stars.

This review is from: High Hopes (Audio CD)
Another great album from the Boss. Liked it from the first play and have played it many times since. Great vocals as usual, catchy tunes and just great rock music from an artist in his prime.

I have a lot of genesis albums in vinyl, but wanted something to play in the car. Excellent selection to suit most tastes. Brought back memories from my younger years! Great value too.

Great value headphones. Cover the ears and block out all external noise. Also, my wife could not hear any sound when she was sitting next to me. Good length of cord and comes with a jack for connecting to your hi-fi. Sound quality is excellent. Highly recommend these headphones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Quality CD Player, 23 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Agree with the other reviews. Item arrived quickly, but display did not work and had to arrange a replacement, hence 4 stars instead of 5. Seller was helpful and unit is working well now. Sound quality is very good as you would expect from Marantz. Would recommend this item, good quality at a reasonable price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable Product for the money, 23 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived in good time and got notified of delivery time. Fairly easy to connect to my Denon Amp and autotune function found the usual DAB stations. Sound quality seems to be OK, but owners manual is fairly basic and not overly helpful. Remote is a bit flimsy and includes functions for Tibo CD player and Tibo amp? Hopefully there will be more info on the Tibo website. Overall it is not very intuitive, but by trial and error you get there in the end. Difficult to recommend at the moment as it has just arrived. Maybe once I figure out all the functionality I will be more positive.

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent unit, 6 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just bought a new amp and CD player and along with an old deck, I needed a unit to put them on. My wife insisted on a glass unit to go with other items in the room. Normally I would have gone for a wooden unit, but glad I went for this glass one instead. Arrived a day after the date specified on Amazon, but the seller was very helpful. Fairly east to assemble, although instructions could be a little more detailed.looks like the picture and seems to be reasonable quality. Holes at the back are good for feeding through cables and keeping it tidy. Overall it is pretty solid and does the job fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Album from KT, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This album needs a few listens, but well worth the effort. Like some of the other reviews, this album grows on you. KT has a great voice and there is a lot of emotion here. A change from her previous album, which I liked as well, but it works brilliantly. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Album, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Weight Of Your Love (Audio CD)
I've been a fan for a while and this album was worth waiting for. Couldn't fault any of the songs and found myself listening to it over and over. Unlike some of the other reviews, I liked track 4 a lot. Can't wait to hear them perform live as I think this Album will be excellent live.
