1.0 out of 5 stars Preposterous rubbish, 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hide and Seek (Kindle Edition)
This is one of the worst novels I have ever read. The story is ludicrously inplausible and much of the book contains boring "filling" material that is hard not to skip. It is one of the very few books that I was tempted not to finish. And when I did get to the end the explanation was ridiculous. The author says he is preparing to write another book; please don't. Dreadful and not worth even 1 star.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a corker!, 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have just replaced these clogs after 10 years of good service from the original pair, only to find that the cork base of the new pair has started to crack after only 6 months use. Amazon were superb agreeing to my request for a replacement pair less than 3 hours after I had emailed them (on a BANK HOLIDAY SUNDAY NIGHT). The replacements were posted on BANK HOLIDAY Monday and arrived on Wednesday 3 days after my complaint. Exemplary customer service.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to more life after Alex, 4 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent thriller, albeit that the plot is a little hard to swallow in places (pun intended). Enjoyed reading it immensely and am looking forward to English translations of some of his other books when they arrive (promised in 2014).

This is one of the best books I have read in the last 12 months. It is beautifully written and beautifully observed - highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incorrect model sent, 26 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Incorrect model sent (730 not 731) was not fully functional with my existing system. Ligo (the supplier) claimed Panasonic had changed the model number (which was either a lie or the customer services rep for Ligo I spoke to did not know what he was talking about) since they were selling both models. Ligo charged me for the model I ordered (731) which was 2 more expensive than the model (730) they sent. I would NEVER use this supplier again under ANY circumstances and asked for a refund.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bodum Brazil coffee maker is badly designed, 3 Feb 2011
Steer clear of this product at all costs; the design is appalling. The glass beaker is held firmly in the plastic holder by the top of the handle pressing down hard on the rim of the beaker. Inevitably you will eventually need to remove the beaker from the holder to clean it since liquid seeps between the beaker and the holder base during use. This involves trying to lift the inflexible handle away from the glass beaker. You may succeed several times but eventually (as I found after 3 weeks use) you will break the beaker and possibly cut yourself on the broken glass. Check out the design in a shop and you will see what I mean. I have used several Bodum filter coffee makers; they all have design faults and are over-priced. Buy another make!

5.0 out of 5 stars Acco Rexel Style Plus shredder, 11 Mar 2010
This is an excellent product and far superior to the cheaper shredders I have bought before from Tescos. I don't find it noisy and I like the fact that you empty it by removing the drawer, rather than removing the cutterhead which I had to do with former shredders. As usual, excellent service from Amazon on price and delivery.
