So so. Lots of American songs which are unknown to me. Still, most of what I hoped to find is there, buried in among the US stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny, informative, 19 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ten Million Aliens (Hardcover)
Funny, informative, immensely readable. Would have been 5 stars but for poor editing, with some words which are misspelt, or missing, or just clearly the wrong word has been used (eg where there are two words close in spelling but entirely different in meaning) While this doesn't detract from the essence of the book, it can be intensely annoying!

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor performance, 22 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Built to normal high Remington standards. Only problem is - it doesn't shave well. I tried and tried but eventually gave up on it. I bought a different, much cheaper, shaver which ACTUALLY SHAVES !

Bought as a gift, but the recipient tells me that it's informative and great fun. Also a ready source for future impressive quotes of 'facts'

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but pricey, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These were bought after much searching for the best price. This price was the best, but I can't help thinking that it's an enormous price to pay for something that probably only costs 10p per blade to manufacture. I blame Gillette for profiteering. Regarding the product, I'm disappointed that the lubricant strip wears out very quickly, after about 6 shaves, even though the blades remain sharp enough to give a clean shave for up to 8 weeks or more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good enough, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for the price. Sure, the quality suffers a little as the thickness isn't there, but they do the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could play with this for hours...., 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Newton's Cradle (Large)
This was purchased as a gift for my partner but we both enjoy its presence in the house. It seems robust and, if set going carefully, proceeds to click and clack numerous times (10+) If it is set going too robustly it can squirt the middle ball out of the line-up and that stops it performing. Packaging was good enough to prevent any breakages, but there was some tangling which had to be carefully unraveled on Christmas day morning!

5.0 out of 5 stars A gift that was loved, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was purchased as a gift. It was read with much chortling and gave great pleasure. As a bloke I don't always quite see what women see in old Clarkson, but it kept her happy, so I'm happy!
