5.0 out of 5 stars Just go for it., 22 Aug 2014

If you try and describe this book it just sounds stupid.

Have faith in all the people who've given it high ratings it's a great read totally unexpected and really enjoyable. Have faith and go for it, it will be worth it.

Good account of the back ground to this day, some interesting bits but overall a bit flat.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Free, 8 July 2014

This review is from: The Rise of Atlantis (App)
Good game but another of these cons that are not really free, if you're going to charge then say so don't advertise as free.

Controls my Sonos system from both phone & tablet without any issues, sand doesn't cause any problems with the phone.

What more needs to be said about a free app


Vax C89-MA-P Air Pet Multicyclonic Bagless Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner
Vax C89-MA-P Air Pet Multicyclonic Bagless Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner
Price: £114.99

4.0 out of 5 stars works well, 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cleaner works well with good suction.

Only 2 minor gripes:
i) the cover to the air filter (within one of the wheels) could do with a better fixing as the turning of the wheel loosen it and occasionally falls off.
ii) A better design (ie telescopic) could have been come up with for the main suction tube / pipe, when this is connected (ie all the time) it is nowhere near as compact as shown on pictures etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cleaver idea, 29 Nov 2013

This review is from: The Time Keeper (Kindle Edition)
Well written nice plot, only thing that stopped it getting 5 stars was the constant religious propaganda, although would let that stop you reading it.

Having changed job so had to change cars which meant I didn't have a built in sat nav thought I'd give this a try with my HTC works brilliantly and cleverly goes straight to car mode when you put the phone into the bracket.

good buy

2.0 out of 5 stars Starts well ........but, 23 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This starts well and looks like a good idea but it just doesn't develop.

Apart from Angela all the people in the book just don't work. I think we're meant to empathise with caroline but you just want to give her a slap.

By about a third of the way through you just want to get to the end so can move on to next book. The ending is both predictable and appears to be a case of "I've written a book how do I finish it" the book drags and then ends in about 3 pages, I can't remember the last time I read a book with such a predictable ending.

Other reviews say it's real to life, I wouldn't have thought all civil servant were happy being portrayed as either corrupt or self pitying.

I believe it's meant to be a teenagers book but it's an enjoyable adult read. Interesting idea for the storyline and enjoyable read.
