5.0 out of 5 stars HUGE!, 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These things are fantastic! Absolutely huge, heavy and dominating. I'll definitely be able to fit my large portions onto these things without spillage. Feel like a quality item, and are actually wider than my current widest pan. Just have to find somewhere to keep them as they are actually too big for my cupboards...

Well packaged, with an excess of bubble wrap. I think they may have used a whole roll to wrap them, and pretty reasonably priced I do think.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 30 April 2010
I bought this item to see whether it would be worthy enough to be used in an electricity generator, and let me tell you it is. The sheer power this relatively tiny magnet exhibits is immense and once stuck to something it can be pretty difficult to pull it off. I haven't enough of these bad boys yet to construct a generator so the one I have makes a pretty good toy and absolutely amazes people with what it can do. You know those paper clip chains which you thought were impressive with ordinary magnets? Well instead of about 8 or so this one can pick up around 800. Even works with penny's, good for filtering out the coppers from the silvers in your penny jar.

Yet because this thing is so powerful; it can do a lot of damage. Be sure to read the instructions and safety leaflets when you receive it and BEFORE you remove it from the packaging. This is because it can wipe hard-drives on everything from your i-pod, phone, alarm clock to your high-tech computers and more. BEWARE it also interferes with pace-makers so BE CAREFUL!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Utter Brilliance, 8 April 2010
This novel is a work of complete literary genius, Hemingway certainly writing at the standard which throws other acclaimed novelist's into shadow. Although some people may be excused for having trouble getting into Fiesta, it is inexcusable not to at least finish this novel.

As the plot progresses one is drawn into the lives of the main characters and the cultures of Spain, France and the Basque Country. The intricate detail and superb and eloquent methods Hemingway uses to tell the tale of Jake and his compatriots excels at making this a novel which will mark your life forever. It is a novel written that is outstanding and timeless for it distinctly interweaves perfectly the reader seamlessly into the life and times of the people whose lives we see play out before us.

I cannot possibly recommend this novel enough, don't pay attention to those philistines who don it merely with one star and sample the great work of Hemingway for yourself. You wont regret it.
