4.0 out of 5 stars Did the job nicely, 22 Feb 2012
Fitted into my square chimney flue easily and has stopped the draughts, but a little bit fiddly due to the way that the fireplace had been fitted in the first place.

Bought this so that I could get my usb wi-fi antenna within closer range of the downstairs modem and it did the job nicely.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and informative read, 6 Feb 2009
Provides some little known information about some very well known people and events. Ferguson writes in a very readable style that it a pleasure to read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Faulty unit, 6 Aug 2007
This would be a nice (if cheaply done) player, but unfortunately the one I received suffered from interference from the backlight leading to an annoying high pitched pulsing sound. Not impressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant, 15 Feb 2001
This book is absolutely brilliant from start to finish. If you have ever played seriously long-winded games (Risk, Canasta, Diplomacy, etc) then you cannot fail to appreciate the game of Azad which is central to the plot. The game-within-a-game-within-a game-within-a-game which underlies the book is a wonder to unravel. If you have never read a Culture novel this could be the one to start with.

5.0 out of 5 stars draws you in, then drags you down, 14 Feb 2001
This is a superb book. The way it is written you find yourself totally drawn into the story before you start to realise the underlying horror, by which time it is too late. Then you'll find yourself avidly turning every page whilst wishing you weren't. Not a book for the faint-hearted, but well worth the effort if you can cope with being forced to confront some pretty horrible apsects of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Matches, 5 Jun 2000
So far, I've consulted this book over a dozen times and on every occasion it has come up trumps with a suggestion that works. Provided you have a reasonably extensive wine cellar, a good cross reference for wine styles (eg Oz Clarke) and a bit of flair in the kitchen, you are unlikely to go wrong with this book at your side. Impress your friends by inviting them around to dinner and having the right bottle for every step of the way.
