2.0 out of 5 stars If you are looking for a faith building read,choose one of her other books, 21 Dec. 2014

I was disappointed with this as it's all too bitty for my taste. Other books by this author I have read and re read

2.0 out of 5 stars Elderly would have difficulty assembling, 27 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my elderly mother. It came without any assembly instructions so I had to just look at the Amazon diagram. Looks as if it will serve the purpose although it has a strange looking daylight bulb! The edges of the lamp rim were rather rough almost to the point of being sharp and the hand adjustment screw needed a pair of pliers to make it secure.

Bought this in yellow for my granddaughter's Xmas present. A different model was sent but this was without a mains lead and also failed to work. Has now been returned for a refund (amazon service dept very helpful!).
There seems to be a serious problem with this make

2.0 out of 5 stars Will not buy. Insufficient safety information., 12 May 2013
I cannot believe that this swing for kids up to 40 Kg has no anchorage fixing nor information about how the swing is fixed to the ground. Looks like a health and safety issue!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not designed for Kindle, 21 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As I've only just got a Kindle, I was naive to think anything would show up in red, in fact the highlighted areas show up lighter on a Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars An improvement on the previous edition, 2 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The new colouring makes it much easier to read than previous editions as well as other additions. It is worth backing it with clear adhesive film to ensure longer life.

Heaven Is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back

Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

5.0 out of 5 stars A really astounding story, 28 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sceptics will say this was all the result of a child's imagination and things in the past his parents didn't think he had heard. However there are too many things that cannot be explained. Personally I'm inclined to believe this little lad. Pity about all the medical staff who missed the diagnosis of his ruptured appendix which nearly caused his death - or did it? Read it and make up your own mind! You'll need a map of the American mid-west.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should be sold with free fire extinguisher, 13 July 2012
Do not be fooled with initial impressions. This tool works well for a while but once the valve below the silver on/off switch begins to leak gas it can create a fire-ball and be lethal. I later confirmed where the leak was by putting the head piece in water.
For health and safety reasons this product should be taken off the market.


Flymo SabreCut Cordless 24V Hedgetrimmer (Old Version)
Flymo SabreCut Cordless 24V Hedgetrimmer (Old Version)

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't listen to the wimps., 7 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just used it for the first time, and it was £20 less than Homebase! Yes, the battery is a bit heavy, but come on, you don't need pain-killers after use! I used a step-ladder that had a shelf at the top and was able to rest the battery on this part of the time. It cut very well and I was able to get a neat edge on the hedge top. As others have said, the extension could do with being a bit longer but it still did the job.
In view of the comments about breakdown I made sure I made use of a free 2nd year guarantee with my bank (the one that's in the moral soup at the moment).
