5.0 out of 5 stars Great, but..., 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: White Cat (Kindle Edition)
I have to say, I saw the plot twist coming quite early on.

Despite that, the way it was resolved was neat, and the central concept was original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific - nice to see Ivan out on his own, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice development, showing Ivan coming into his own as a character rather than just being Miles' foil.

A chance to prove that he's more than a party animal/horndog.

Good pacing, nice twists and a leavening g of humour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, cheap, easy to set up., 12 Dec 2013

What's not to like?

Works well, easy to set up, well-priced. Knocks spots off most of the tat that ISPs send out (including the irritating "home hub").

I keep a couple in stock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should have bought it years ago, 12 Dec 2013

I have occasional knee problems- I finally bought this to help with a torn ligament.
Comfortable, supportive and not too bulky. Can get a bit warm.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, but some missed opportunities, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly, there are some editing blunders, with some articles being interrupted mid-sentence by erroneous insertion of titles of other sections.

Perhaps more irritatingly, there are lots of cross-references - why are these not linked?
It's an e-book! The text says that cross-references are in small caps: this doesn't work in the e-book version, as the e-reader determines the font, so they're just in caps. But why not make them hyperlinks?

Still, a useful reference.


Home Easy Remote Control 3 Pack Socket Kit, Silver
Home Easy Remote Control 3 Pack Socket Kit, Silver

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, but doesn't seem a s robust as older units., 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I already had a set of the older sockets, with which these are compatible.

The older design have a light and a separate button to press for pairing- with this, the light and the button are combined, yet overall these new ones are slightly larger.

One of the three sockets was faulty on delivery, with the button doing nothing.

I'll see what the replacements are like- but I have to say that the older units were better: these have the feel of being made down to a price rather than to a spec.

Offered by My Discounts Direct
Price: £11.04

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, but not very foamy., 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The stuff works, and without the residue that the gels tend to leave - but the foam is not actually that foamy.

It's like the head on a pint of beer, where I was expecting a texture more like shaving foam.

It's also quite strong-smelling, though in fairness it fades quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful addition to the Home Easy range, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had a set of sockets already, and wanted to be able to control them by timer.

After some initial setup issues, sorted by calling the helpdesk, worked fine.

The biggest irritation is that this device can manage 16 sockets, but the selection of them is via a "unit" button. If you've just operated e.g. unit 6, to get to unit 5 you have to press the unit button 15 times: up and down buttons would make this so much better, rather than cycling round all the time. Loses one star for that irritation.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't finish it., 12 Dec 2013

Another jump on the teenage vampire bandwagon. This was free, and somewhat overpriced- it's half an hour of my life I won't get back.
