3.0 out of 5 stars Good story, lots of threads...., 24 Mar 2014

This review is from: Illegally Yours (Kindle Edition)
This was a good story, with lots of threads which gradually interwove. Unfortunately the ending came so quickly, it seemed a bit rushed. Would have
Iiked a better, more satisfactory conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great kitchen scissors, 12 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these to replace my old scissors, which had given up after many years of use. These are really good, and efficient, and feel very comfortable to hold and use.

The added bonus of the two halves separating for washing makes the scissors very appealing, and is a very good idea.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 12 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this grater as I had a Mouli grater for about 30-odd years, and the only reason I stopped using that was because it would start to go rusty on the edges of the drum, after washing, if it wasn't dried immediately, leaving brown marks on the cheese.
I had purchased a cheap replacement, made of plastic with stainless steel drums, but the catch on the "hopper" broke after less than 6 months use.
This time, I was determined to get an all-stainless steel one, and this looked good, with good reviews. It feels nice and comfortable and a good decent weight to it. It also works very well, so I am very pleased with it. I'm hoping this lasts as long as my original Mouli.

Not bad as a short story, but the writer seems to have lifted the whole idea from 'Watership Down', adding a bit more gore, making it rather more unpleasant.

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy reading, 24 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Found the book a very easy read and quite enjoyable, but the (fairly frequent) mis-spellings or wrong use of words eg "they'll be" instead of "there'll be" and a castle which "exchanged hands" giving a whole different meaning, instead of "the castle changed hands".
Also the constant use of the phrase "other brands are available" when mentioning a drink, or sweets or anything else the intrepid pair had been given. The joke wore a bit thin by the end of the book, having been used about a dozen times. Sometimes, George, less is more !
On the whole a fairly good read, but the annoying little mistakes began to grate by the end.

Ordered these as they were the best value for money. I prefer these cornstarch bags for my compost caddy, as they bio-degrade extremely quickly. Would use this company again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful extra shelf, 15 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered this oven shelf to sit on the bottom of my oven, and it arrived in super quick time. Seems a very strong and sturdy shelf, unlike the adjustable ones, which tend to close up when least convenient ! Very pleased indeed with the service, would use this company again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tecknet case for ipad 2, 12 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this case for my ipad 2 after having spent out on the Apple smart cover which cost considerably more. This TeckNet case is really good quality and offers greater protection for my ipad. The Apple smart cover offers no protection to the back of the ipad, and if I'm honest it's a bit wobbly as a stand, when folded up as advised. The TeckNet has a really sturdy stand, which can be adjusted to several angles and it just feels altogether better.

The only downside is that the stand only works in the landscape mode but that's not too much of a problem (for me, anyway).

It fits well and the various openings on the ipad are all catered for.

All in all, I would recommend this as very good value for the money, giving good protection and peace of mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job well !, 15 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this when visiting my daughter and our new grandson, she had placed him in his Moses crib near open French doors as the midwife suggested but unfortunately those pesky flies and wasps kept coming in. Ordered this as a solution and it arrived within two or three days. Does the job perfectly - fits the crib very well, and allows mum to be elsewhere in the house without worrying about bugs !
