4.0 out of 5 stars Clever and charming puzzler, 7 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Monument Valley (App)
fun little puzzler, lovely art style and nice music. It is a little short, there's no denying that, mainly because one you get the games logic it becomes less challenging, but well worth the 69p. Hopefully more levels will be released, you can tell lots of effort was put into designing the later levels which are a joy to complete. I'd give it 5 stars with a few more levels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Feels a little rushed,but still enjoyable!, 17 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you've read the other books you'll enjoy this. As the end to a trilogy though it just seemed to rush the end and leave too many loose ends for me to feel like I've actually finished the story. There is plenty of action, it's a fast paced easy read!

3.0 out of 5 stars Hello, my name is Inego Montoya. You read this because you loved the film, prepare to be dissapointed!, 15 Aug. 2014
This review is from: The Princess Bride (Paperback)
I love the film and maybe thats the problem here. The story is for the most part the same story with a few minor changes, eg. The pit of despair is the zoo of death. I think my main dissapointment with this book is Westley and Buttercup are much less likable than their film counterparts. She is beautiful but dense as a post and he's just not a nice guy, rather condescending about her intelligence and really a bit of a arse. Remember in the film where he threatened to hit her for saying she'd loved more deeply than a killer like him could ever dream? Well in the book he proper backhands her! He's a real charmer! Really the only characters who come across well are inego and fezzic.

The other problem is the author, who won't just let the story flow but has to pretend he's cutting out parts of someone elses story that are talking about fictional countries. It's just tough going.

If you seen the film you'll love this, if you have its a new look at it, and still a great story, just one I didn't enjoy as much as I thought I would.

3.0 out of 5 stars It looks nice but don't expect much protetion, 30 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case is official and so looks very smart. The graphite effect is nice and it covers your screen nicely when closed. When opened it can be a little fiddly as you have to fold it behind the phone and it's not always comfortable to hold. It can also make using the volume buttons a little annoying. My main gripe however is that you by a case to protect your phone and this offers practically no protection from even a miner drop. If you're very careful and want a smart looking case this is for you. If you're even slightly accident prone or active and think there's a chance your phone is going to meet the floor then look for another more sturdy case!

What can you say, it's tetris. the controls work pretty well and it's a classic game. I do miss the old music, not keen on the new version......maybe I'm just getting old!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for jack russells, 30 July 2013

Our JRT's love this bed. We ended up getting them one each as they took to the first one so quickly. It comes a little flat at first but your dog will fix that over a week or so getting in and out of this bed. Well worth the money :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Not many books I read twice,even fewer series, 13 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
But that's what has happened.this is actually my 3rd time through this series (first on kindle) and it's as good as the first time. Such great characters and a world that you just put yourself into. Characters you'll feel for and several others you'll love to despise. There's 9 books in the full series if you count the liveship traders and the tawny man trilogies and I recommend reading the full story.

I won't give away too much of the plot but what I can say is that this trilogy focuses on Fitz, a royal bastard who becomes the kings assassin. He has a hard time of it, and is on the end of a lot of stick from a lot of people simply for being born. That is really oversimplifying a lot but I don't want to spoil any surprises for anyone. Just read the books,you won't regret it!


3D CUBE PUZZLE
3D CUBE PUZZLE
Price: £0.00

3.0 out of 5 stars needs better controls, 22 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 3D CUBE PUZZLE (App)
This could be a fantastic app but the controls let it down. The cubes can range from 3x3 to 11x11 and rotating the cube to look at different sides works quite well. Turning pieces of the cube is less intuitive and you'll frequently try to turn one row only to turn the wrong row or rotate the face.try turning it back and you'll turn the wrong thing again.changing the sensitivity didn't help. If better controls were put in an update (perhaps buttons to rotate the front,top,left,right and bottom clockwise or counter clockwise) I'd happily give it 5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars It works, but so will your blackberry/samsung/other generic charger, 9 April 2013

It's cheap, it'll charge your e-reader. The chances are you have something else in your household that has the same connection though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Protects your ready superbly, 9 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really like this case. The reader slots in and will never be in danger of coming out. All buttons and charging areas/headphone sockets are easily accesable. It feels nice on the reader too. Gives it a little weight and makes it feel a little more solid.
The light is good and you can read with it on with no problems. The hook that holds the light is not fantastic, just a piece of leather shaped like a hook that you puch over the light, but it does the job. The stand works fairly well but is more of a novelty than something you will use.
