Sworn to Silence (Kate Burkholder Book 1)

4.0 out of 5 stars Page turner, 3 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some reviews have said that this book was formulaic and amateurish. While this is probably true to some degree, I find that is very often the case with thrillers.
Given the genre, this novel had engaging characters, even with their stereotypical flaws, and a good plot with enough twists to keep me wanting to read more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great concept, 23 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The "different" future world that Suzanne Collins has created for this fantasy novel is fresh if disturbing. Panem is perhaps not quite as well realised as Tolkien's Middle Earth or Iain M Banks' Culture universe but those are imaginative tours de force to use as a yardstick. Her characters are engaging and the story is a real page turner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good sequel, 23 July 2012

This review is from: Catching Fire (Kindle Edition)
I am always a little sceptical about what to expect from a follow up novel. However, Suzanne Collins kept up the pace and involvement of the first Hunger Games book in this exciting sequel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but pricey, 16 Feb. 2012

Quality and performance wise, I'd give this product five stars. I do though think that it should come as standard with the radio: hence the three star rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little radio, 16 Feb. 2012

The Pure One Mini II may be small but its sound will fill a large room. Not just that, the sound quality is very good too. You can attach an MP3 player to listen to recorded music without headphone as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like the original, 28 Jan. 2012

I purchased this to have a second charger upstairs and it's just like the one that came with my HTC Desire. Just what I wanted.

I upgraded from 2003 and this does not seem radically different. However, the interface looks more modern. Having the window with appointments and tasks coming up at the right of your mail screen is a very helpful feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars 21st Century Office, 15 July 2010

This version looks very different to 2003 which I was using before. It takes a little getting used to but I feel that it is easier once you have become familiar with it.
