2.0 out of 5 stars Very good sound but poor build quality, 22 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used these headphones for six months. The sound quality is in my view excellent. The only downside is the right headphone just snapped this morning when taking the headphones off. It seems, from looking at other reviews, I'm not alone with this experience. It is truly a shame I now have to look for another pair of headphones.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless, 30 Dec 2008
I have had this trap for just over a week - and the kitchen mouse is definitely eating the food and slipping back out again. This trap is not really worth the effort or the money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing reading, 8 May 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Legion (Hardcover)
I have to say, after just finishing the this book, I feel rather disappointed and empty. Firstly, it seems a lot was lost in the translation. The italian original probably had more 'flavour'. Secondly, there's defintely something missing with the main characters in this book. You never get to know them, they never observe enough of their surroundings. The book offer only a few glimpses of 'roman' life. Not even the so called 'barbarians' are described in any detail. Only one character - Ambrosinus - is somewhat believable. Halfway through the book, it's obvious where this story is heading - the last emperor of Rome and his tutor will give rise to another so called 'legend' in Britannica.
Anyone with a little interest about Rome and especially what life possibly was like in the western part of the Roman empire will be deeply disappointed. In a way, this book is more of a movie script than serious novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars An extraordinary book, 1 May 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is truly a remarkable first hand account of the fighting on the eastern front during WWII. There are many other books which have all dealt with the same topic, but I have never read a book which simply describes what happened with honesty and simple clarity. We follow machine gunner Koschorrek between the years 42-44 in different parts of Russia, Italy and Romania. The book actually starts with his lucky escape from the Stalingrad pocket in Dec -42, from there on it just gets worse. He describes the incredible bravery performed by the average soldier, the friends and comrades who were not so lucky and last but not least, the inhuman conditions of war as they were experienced on the eastern front. I read this book in two days - it was impossible to put it down.......
