4.0 out of 5 stars tiny & light pocket knife, 18 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This knife is really light and small. Needed sharpening when received but took a good edge - remains to be seen how long it holds its edge.

3.0 out of 5 stars does the job, 13 Sep 2012

Only thing to say is that the strap could do with being a little longer but other wise no complaints.

4.0 out of 5 stars an enjoyable unchallenging read, 13 Sep 2012

I enjoyed this book. A good read for a daily commute - easy to dip in and out of.
A bit Bridget Jones but good fun nevertheless.

4.0 out of 5 stars well worth the read, 4 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I always try and read at least two of the Booker short list - so far have read this and "Cross Dressed to Kill"
Love this book - deep and with gentle humour. Well worth reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but, 21 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Daylight Gate (Hardcover)
Enjoyable read but not a long read. Having spent my formative years in the shadow of Pendle Hill the story is not unfamiliar.
However to me this book is just a reworking and dramatisation (insertion of lots of sex) of the excellent "Mist Over Pendle" by Robert Neill first published in 1951. Many of the same characters and storyline appear in the Daylight Gate whilst some from Mist Over Pendle, including my namesake Richard Baldwin are omitted.

"Mist Over Pendle" is a far better read and if you can get hold of it "Lancashire Witches" by William Harrison Ainsworth is pretty good too - although being published in the 1820 some of the dialect is difficult for non locals.

1.0 out of 5 stars dont buy this or trust this seller, 8 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
cover turned out to be Charlie Romeo Alpha Papa - my daughter used it once for return journey France to UK and back and then the next time she used for a journey France to Germany it split at the airport on the way out (backpack only weighed 13 kilos)
Tried to take the matter up with the seller but they don't reply to my messages. Amazon cannot/will not help because they are a "third party" seller. Beware !

1.0 out of 5 stars beware of description, 18 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Description says "Reese's Peanut Butter Cups 51g (3 Pack) x 3" - Now I know there are three cups in a pack but that description suggested to me that I was going to get "Pack x 3" - i.e. a total of 9 cups - even the picture shows more than one pack.
But oh no you only get one pack of three cups. I love peanut butter cups but this item description is misleading.

5.0 out of 5 stars cracking cover!, 3 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Shied away from buying official Kindle covers after reading reviews about some users experiencing problems with their Kindles because a techical glitch. So I opted for the Dura Gadget cover and have now been using mine since January 2011 and it is fantastic. Whether holding it one handed in bed or using the stand on my loooong train commute to/from London it is comfortable and offers great protection to my wonderful Kindle. Guess I use it a minimum of two hours a day Monday to Friday and less at weekends.
Would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone. If mine ever wears out I will buy another one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Maul, 15 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used it every weekend for last five weeks (four large trees felled and now splitting into logs for fire & stove) - Does what it says on the tin! - only trouble is my old body can't use it for too long before I need a beer and a lie down!
