The Age of Shiva
The Age of Shiva
by Manil Suri
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.21

5.0 out of 5 stars Not all women are stereotypical western women!, 18 Jun 2014
This review is from: The Age of Shiva (Paperback)
This is beautifully written and is done so from the honest prospective of what the main character experiences within and about her. She is what she is and you do not necessarily have to like her to understand the feelings that are within her. The text is elaborate in its descriptions but adds to the understanding of how Meera is shaped. Not all things end perfectly in life. Not all people are strong or make the right decisions. This is called honest brutality - which means that characters do not necessarily follow those portrayed in hollywood fairy tales which some readers seem to expect. Anyway I enjoyed it. It is not a happy book but it is what it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for money, 2 Feb 2014
I have the red one. Yes it is not superb quality but for the price it is excellent value. If you drop an iPad then expect trouble regardless of the cover. Best advice is not to drop it. I never get on with installing screen protectors and threw mine away but seemed perfectly adequate for the job. Great that it comes with a handy stylus. Yes I would recommend this as it is great cover for generally keeping your iPad protected for not a rip off price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant little back up phone, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This a brilliant small back up phone. The battery life is amazing. I use it only for receiving calls and it lasts over a week! The lack of 3G / WiFi means that it is not for the internet dependant on their phone - but that's what makes it great for battery time.

1.0 out of 5 stars did not work for me, 28 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read the 3 positive reviews and one negative review I decided to try it. I have bad hard skin and feel like the cloven hoof of the devil. Sadly after the treatment nothing happened as a the previous negative also said. Not one flake of skin or any softening occurred. You can smell the acid in the solution which is similar to that of wart/varucca removal agents so it should work in principal. But maybe not on real hard skin

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a traditional americano or expresso maker, 3 Nov 2013
This is a lovely looking and easy to use machine. However, the americano does not taste that great, even the Costa pods, and so if you want a real nice tasting coffee, get a trues expresso making machine as this will be a let down otherwise even though it is a great price.

1.0 out of 5 stars miss representation of products by nightingale nursing supplies, 13 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Description is misleading by above suppliers - you get only one random flavour not chosen by yourself although the picture demonstrates a box with 6 included flavour - you get one dam in a small Buffy bag. Rip off. Misleading. I will never buy from this misleading company again. Can get a whole load of flavours for free at any doctors or clinic. Go there instead.

Further to the above I got harassed by the firm on my mobile telephone number which I did not give permission to use and had to get them blocked. All this on a rare weekend off. What bad customer service to be hassling people on a Sunday. Disgraceful. Avoid this company like the plague!

What a lovely, pleasant, eloquent and in its own way inspiring story of a unique middle-aged but young at heart lady. Uplifting and nice short read.

Fast paced. Pleasingly written so can be greedily read in one or two sittings. Nice twists. Witty. And intriguing enough to keep you interested and captivated. Go for it!

1.0 out of 5 stars A boring porn fest, 30 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With very little substance. I did not enjoy it at all. A bit disjointed/jumpy even for a simple theme. Shame.
