5.0 out of 5 stars Such an entertaining, funny, and interesting book for me!, 6 Sep 2013
Wow! I have been reading this book in bits during my long days working outside with little to do, when things aren't busy. It has made my time a lot more enjoyable and endurable! First, this book is entertaining and sometimes very humorous indeed! It is also interesting and informative. You won't only be entertained. Some of the things actually teach you a little skill, technique, or knowledge that could actually be useful or helps to enrich in some way. Learn a magic trick, learn some useful way of thinking or living, gain some knowledge in a specialist area, expand your awareness and understanding of the world through many interesting and sometimes unusual topics. I really like the writing style, which is accurate and intelligent yet interesting and easygoing. It is also great that the book is made up of so many small and varied sections. You can read a little at a time or just keep reading and being entertained for a few hours. Even if you don't like to read too much at a time, this book is not at all a chore, but it also offers a lot for the reader who wants more from their reading. Some people could criticise this book for some of the reasons I praise it; perhaps saying it is too disjointed, unfocussed, light, or casual. In everything, it is a matter of taste, preference, expectations, and experience. I am half-way through this book now and it won't be long before I finish it at this rate. I have been thoroughly entertained and sometimes been suprisingly well educated in a wide variety of topics! I got this hardback book for the bargain price of £2.99 in The Works and am so glad I did. It's worth considerably more than that and I am glad to have this opportunity to read and experience it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting and good fun!, 31 Aug 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
For a reasonably priced toy/ gadget this is a lot of fun and features many authentic sound effects from major science fiction series and films. The sound and the selection of effects are very good indeed and I like the theme. Favourites of mine are the lightsaber and the 'One small step for man' moonlanding speech.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, very good quality!, 8 Jan 2011
Does the job and does it well with a great price! Very cheap HDMI cable and yet seems to be high quality and nice design (as much as design comes into a cable!). The only thing to consider may be the cable length, which is more than enough for connecting devices that are located together but may be an issue if they are not, though it is a decent length. Any doubts- just measure up! In my research and judgement, this seems to be the best HDMI cable for low price without the cheap quality or looks. If you are buying it to connect a games console to your television and want to output audio to a separate speaker system, you may want to consider the HDMI and audio adapter set or factor in some other audio connection appropriate to your system.
