1.0 out of 5 stars Films? What films?, 15 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered from the product description as Region 2 but turned out to be Region 1 - wouldn't play, so what can you say. 'Where is Doctor Jones?'

This review is from: The Closers (Paperback)
All Bosch, all the way. I'm gradually working my way through all of MC's 'Harry Bosch' books, and this is a worthy addition to the collection. If you don't know Harry Bosch, get some now!

Lost my Shubb capo, and was devastated. This is its replacement and all is well again ... and you can't beat Shubb for build quality and reliability. I am once again picking my heart out!

Lost my partial capo, and was bereft. This is its replacement and all is well again ... and you can't beat Shubb for build quality and reliability. I am a happy bunny!

1.0 out of 5 stars Failure to engage and one-dimensional characters ..., 15 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brain Wave (Kindle Edition)
An absolutely first-rate idea spoiled by paper-thin characterisations, lack of pace and George-Lucas-level poor dialogue. The one interesting character in the whole book (the farmhand raised from idiocy to functionality) and the one set of interesting relationships (the animals of Earth) were pushed aside by the dull and endless meanderings of a group of wholly-unlikeable 'intellectuals'. Shame.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Walking Dead (pixel), 26 May 2011
Lovely looking monitor, came like lightning by DHL (or UPS, can't recall) and looked splendid on my desk for three days. Then - lo and behold, one dead pixel right in the upper-middle of the screen. Sent back, immediate refund, no worries but I'm left with an almost unbearable longing for the old days of CRT and glass screens. I have a horrible feeling that the whole 'LCD/TFT/flatscreen vs CRT' business is just 'VHS vs Betamax' all over again ... <sigh>

1.0 out of 5 stars Good grief - a waste of money, even at 70p, 8 April 2011
Don't bother with this one. A collection of stuff that everyone and his mum knows already, of no use to the 'WP Professional' as it states. The best parts are the many typos scattered throughout the text. Code is beauty, remember, but spelling correctly makes you look like you know what you're doing, at least. 1/10 - see me

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, affecting, a real treat, 5 Jan 2010
This review is from: Bears of England (Hardcover)
This is a beautifully-written and touching book, each story leading towards its own conclusion without a wasted word or paragraph, while at the same time adding a thread to the whole, so that the ending is at once heartbreaking and heartwarming. My friend Queenie bought it for me for Christmas with her usual skill and deftness at choosing gifts, and I cherished every moment on the train, in bed, on the loo as the book rarely left my side. Ignore Misery Guts (the other reviewer) who seems to believe that a meal must have three courses with Yorkshires, two kinds of taters and custard with the pudding to satisfy. This is not the case - small and tasty wins the day, this book will satisfy without bloating. And he can't spell 'eighth' either.
