5.0 out of 5 stars Who needs a gas oven ?, 9 Mar 2014

Great product, cooks food better and more evenly. I would recommend to anyone, I would also say you need to get a cookbook just to get the best out of it and get your head around it.

For the price, don't look back just invest.

This review is from: Kitchen Timer LADYBUG purple
When received the product the packaging wasn't that great, I would describe the packaging as looking 'used'. Unfortunately after a bit of testing it didn't work, it would count down but wouldn't ring. To cut a long story short I sent it back, to their credit there was no issue and I got a full refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Mouse, 15 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would recommend this mouse, I do a hell of a lot of clicking and pointing at work, this mouse is light and the batteries last a good while. It is very well built and a lot of people have commented. For the price you may as well give it a go. The mouse is a tad smaller than a normal one but I like it, maybe others wouldn't.... who knows.

Blocks the light out perfectly and is well made. I have gone through a few eye masks over the years but these are definitely the nicest ones. Well packaged too. Would buy again.


Fragile Paradise: The Discovery of Fletcher Christian, Bounty Mutineer

5.0 out of 5 stars ----- The Truth Finally -----, 25 Mar 2007
In short if you have heard about the mutiny on the bounty and found it mildly interesting or perhaps you have enjoyed one of the many films made on the subject then you will love this book.

Admittedly it is rather difficult to get into; the book begins with a lot of the Christians family history but it is important to know the type of family to which he (Fletcher) is a member of. If you persevere through these opening chapters you will be rewarded by being transported back to the seventeen hundreds and be shown and taken through all the events leading too and culminating in the seizure of the HMAV Bounty.

Most interesting in this wonderfully pieced together book by Glen Christian is his narratives about the mutineers failed attempt to set up home on Tubuai (the doomed Fort George), and about the early history of Pitcairn Island and the sad events surrounding the massacre and its most likely high profile victim, Fletcher Christian.

To conclude, this book kept my minds eye full of images of the struggles at sea and the harshness of seventeen century life. The book makes you feel like your there with Glen during this struggles to piece together facts and historical data to bring this book to life. You also feel your on the Bounty following them as an observer into there place in navel history.

I fully recommend this great read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor, 25 Mar 2007
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Personally I feel it is just a very poor sequel. It has some great graphics, official kits and has the rights to the 2007 World Cup logos and grounds. I just think the AI lets this game down massively, I would prefer lesser graphics if it meant the AI was better. It just bugs me that your computer opponent doesnt change the field when you have hit the ball through the same old gap time and time again. Brian Lara 2005 was a revelation and 2007 was eagerly anticipated but has come up very short.

Perhaps the PS2 version is better ? who knows.

5.0 out of 5 stars ---- brilliant ----, 24 Jan 2006
This review is from: The Bounty [DVD] (DVD)
I first learnt about the history of this famous mutiny by harmlessly reading about islands in the Pacific Ocean on lonelyplanet.com. Pitcairn I learnt was home to the descendents of the bounty mutineers and even spoke in 18th century English. Anyway, my curiosity was aroused and I embarked on learning more. I saw this DVD and bought it immediately after reading the reviews, it boasts an all-star cast and the makers have spent a lot of money on recreating one of the most infamous moments in Navel history.
Mel Gibson is superb as Fletcher Christian, and Anthony Hopkins as Lieutenant Bligh is simply awesome. No one lets this film down, all the events and emotions surrounding this true story are delivered beautifully to the viewer. I also fully recommended listening to the historian’s commentary, which is fascinating. How this film failed to get the recognition it deserved bemuses me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Embrace Pitcairn, 24 Jan 2006
This review is from: Serpent in Paradise (Paperback)
I too like Dea Birkett became fascinated about the history of Pitcairn after watching 'The Bounty' with Mel Gibson. So much so that when looking through my local library for literature about this distant place, I stumbled across this book.
The superb thing about this book is its from a first hand point of view, it isn’t just a book trying to sell you a good story so that you want to go on holiday there. This book delves into the history, way of life, the geography and best of all the people, the community.
I must agree with other readers though in regards to the way it is written. It is certainly written poorly in areas and I sensed that it was rushed towards the end, but all in all I found the book so intriguing and could almost imagine being there.
