Arctic Labyrinth: The Quest for the Northwest Passage
Arctic Labyrinth: The Quest for the Northwest Passage
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good background reading, 29 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very useful (for me) in describing the climate conditions and behaviour of different "tribes" of Inuit. We tend to think of them as a melange, not as groups with differing ways of dealing with strangers.

It is the best source of all the poetry I have read, with many useful interlinks of explanation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Old History Now, 6 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Shows its age. The sentiments in the introduction are now out of kilter with a lot of the latest thinking (for example writing that the Vikings were not civilised as we know it). Most of the rest of the book is written from the premise of a "Dark Age" which ignores all the laws later taken up by the Normans, and tends to minimise the craftsmanship as well. Interesting mainly as a historical document in itself

4.0 out of 5 stars VFM for the price, 30 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This machine does what it sets out to do, but is not so good with wet leaves. I don't like the way that once the blower is assembled it can't be disassembled so takes up more room than it should. There is also the dichotomy that it isn't too brilliant at picking up other debris mixed it with leaves (we have 2 walnut trees) as the shredder/fan is made of a plastic and may not be able to cope with walnut shells as well as our squirrels do. Compared with others we have seen in Garden Centres at twice the price it does give good VFM.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, 30 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worked first time as I hoped it would. My only criticism is that the scroll wheel is set too far back for me, so that I have to move from Left/Right click panels to operate it. my old (non-wireless) mouse was spot on with this function.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Snoozepillow than Portillo, 22 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An attempted take on the "real" Bradshaw's Guide, but it won't set Michael Portillo off on any journeys. Too self aware.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Spin than Rince, 22 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Rince Cycle (Kindle Edition)
Not up to standard I was expecting. Just a regurgitated series of scenes from the books, and it read how you would expect a regurgitation would do. Sold on the back of Pratchett's recent demise ? Not so much Rince as Spin

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nearly there, 11 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can only give it 4 stars because of its properties. It is flexible so needs support on a tray in the oven otherwise the oven shelf has to come out with it. Adding to the problem it is also slightly sticky, so doesn't slide easily out of the oven unless on a tray or shelf. However I love the results and the markings which are a great help in placing biscuits or buns on the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings, 5 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Much better than the one I had in that it can be reset easily to record daily max/min temperatures, but worse than the old one in that the o/s temperature lead is much shorter (by about 400 cm) so cannot record out of the sun in an open area
