5.0 out of 5 stars Happy with the purchase., 3 July 2014
Great Item. The seller was quite helpful and informed us of the delivery date.

The item well packed. It was easy to put together. Although it might take about 2-3 hours to get it all up and running. The final result is stunning.

I bought it for my wife's studio and she absolutely loves it. Looks sturdy and expensive.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite stretchy..., 1 July 2014

I got them because they were pretty cheap, but of course you get what you pay for. While they do OK, they still need to stretch a little bit more...they feel like solid ropes rather than elastic straps.


Revelations: Alien Contact and Human Deception
Revelations: Alien Contact and Human Deception
by Jacques Vallee
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Intellectual paradigm shift, 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I always found Jacques Vallees' theories quite intriguing in the sense that they take unorthodox yet extremely convincing path of logic. Vallee is not a debunker, he simply believes that while Area 51 and Roswell for instance are perhaps an intelligence mind game, this still does not negate the essence of the UFO phenomenon. UFOs are not necessarily the product of extra-terrestrial intelligence, but rather physical objects from other dimensions. The evidence he presents is water tight. That is not to say it's not open to discussion, but gives you a different way to look at Ufology.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice.., 1 July 2014
The delivery was super fast and the item arrived in a perfect condition.

It feels and looks nice. My only take is that the instruction could do with a bit of wording instead of only diagrams. Also, there was a couple of screws missing. Luckily they were readily available in my toolbox which helped me finish putting up the product properly.

Very happy with the final result.

3.0 out of 5 stars These are NOT black out.., 1 July 2014
I was surprised to discover that these curtains were not totally blackout, when the sunlight falls on them they simply subdue the light, and doesn't really block it up. I've got blackout curtains and they act like a piece of wood when put in front of light, that is to say, they block 99% of the light. These, however, subdues the light and blocks about 60% of it.

Having said that, the curtains are very neat and I decided to keep them and simply get a blind behind them to achieve a 100% blackout effect.

Also, they are thermally well designed and help to some degree regulate the room temperature.


Cosmic Challenge: The Ultimate Observing List for Amateurs
Cosmic Challenge: The Ultimate Observing List for Amateurs
by Philip S. Harrington
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £31.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well written and illustrated., 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book for two reasons; to get ideas on what else to observe- giving more perspective to my many Star Atlases and second I enjoy Harrington's writing style and his approach to amateur astronomy.

In nutshell, the chapters collect a group of targets based on the telescope aperture size. If you have 12" + telescope, then you'll make the most of this book. For apertures less than 12" there are still plenty of gems to point your telescope at.

It's a beautiful and well presented book that can serve you well for years to come. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very intriguing..., 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dimensions (Hardcover)
Jaques Vallee tries to draw some comparison between the ancient fairies, Gentry and Jinn on one hand and UFOs and the other. He successfully presents intriguing case studies that are worth thinking about. The historical narrative is solid and the argument is well established. Much of what you expect of an author of such intellectual capacity.

While Vallee's argument revolves around the rejection of the Extra-terrestrial hypothesis, which many Ufologists embrace, he continues to bring on the table more arguments to support the ''Extra-dimensional'' hypothesis. The evidence is interesting and well worth considering.

Too much to say about this book, least to say...it's an eye opener. Highly recommended.


UFO's in the Quran
UFO's in the Quran
by Abdul Aziz Khan
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £15.50

1.0 out of 5 stars What is this book about exactly?, 27 May 2014
This review is from: UFO's in the Quran (Hardcover)
I read a large number of books on both the subjects UFOs and religion metaphysical dimensions. And out of interest I thought I'd pick this one and give a shot. I read it all in one night.

I have to say, it's less of a well researched book and more of a extended narrative of journalistic work. While it's titled 'UFOs and the Quran'', it tackles this particular subject in about 50 pages out of 189. The first 90 pages are just a narrative and historical chronicle of UFOs starting in 1947 into the early 1990s. The last pages are a take on the Islamic history, the Crusades, the Temple Templar and the Freemasons. The writer however fails in building a solid connection and smooth content flow..

Unfortunately there is a lot of hashing and superfluous details in the first section. It's a common trade that don't copy/paste the whole text of a serious document in the book without stripping it into prices for analysis - or at least use them as case studies.

In my opinion, while there are some interesting points, they are presented in this book in superficial manner that lacks serious and profound analysis. The author interestingly found a connection between Jinns and aliens. This could be the case, but quoting Quranic verses and Hadeeth without a proper historical and socio-political analysis, I believe, damaged the argument validity.

Let alone there seems to be some effort to apply the ''Ancient aliens and Aliens of the Bible'' to Quran. While the author states clearly that Quran is drastically different from the Bible and the Old Testament, it would've been more rewarding if there were elaboration on the subject. The argument, while lacks solidity, could open up the door to more profound research into the field of Islamic Ufology.

The book could've been better researched. About 20 references are hardly enough for a book this size. Around 20 pages that I found interesting and worth looking into - let alone building on - the rest are just a historical narrative.

Having said all that, if you're completely new to the subject of UFOs you could probably benefit from this book as it's clear and reasonably organized. For the serious researcher on the other hand it's a bit problematic despite the fact that some of the points in the book could be worth building upon.

If Abdul Aziz Khan takes on the subject of Islam and Ufology in more elaboration and deeper analysis, then we will have something revolutionary at hand. Until this has been done, I'm afraid I'll give this book only one star.
