1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly edited, hugely disappointing., 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am surprised at the other reviews of this book. To me it was extremely badly written, and seemed to have lacked a decent edit. The pace varies from the initial frantic to turgid while shipbound. The time in Lahore is very confusing with no clear indication of the passage of time.
As an example, the disappearance of the two white girls was known in Natal for what must have been weeks after the event, but nothing further happened to them until the last day, which must have been months later. Also the final arrival of Chelmsford is not clearly explained but just a convenient way of getting heroes out of a mess.
Sadly totally unbelievable and not in the same league as the Flashman books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Coffee star for holidays, 31 Mar 2014

If you really like your real coffee from a cafetiere and you are going on holiday, this is worth considering. All you need is your ground coffee and a kettle. So simple, and it keeps your coffee hot

James Adair, fresh from his success as the editor and sports reporter for the influential Alderney Journal made unputdownable reading of his and his mate,s crossing of the Indian Ocean. A story to inspire. Keeping writing, James.

4.0 out of 5 stars good but mucks up keyboard, 26 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm possibly not using it as much as I should, but when I do it works very well.I have found that as advised it works better if I speak at my normal speed. Punctuation is difficult but probably I need to read the manual - man thing.

One problem is that it overrides such often used keys as + so I have to use the alternates on the top row. This is an annoyance.

Besides that I am sure it is a good addition to productivity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and amusing, 19 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm still reading it, but the book is in a very readable style, mildly amusing. It covers a fascinating period, the end of Athenian ascendancy in Greece, with the devastating defeat by Syracuse. Well worth reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Neat but slow, 20 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought it to replace my NC10, which is a dream/ but was starting to show its age with a dying and wheezing fan, as well as attacks of the dreaded white screen.
The NC110 comes with Windows 7, supposedly superior to XP, which I have used at home and work. But it is one of the great failings of modern software, the near universal drive to improve perfection. With W7, I can't find anything I want, but the system seems to want to ,make me use things I don't want. I'll probably load Xp on to it.
Otherwise, as a netbook it is great. I was torn between a netbook and tablet, but as I still need excel and word, as well as storage and a good keyboard, the netbook won out. But I admit that I'm writing this on my Nexus 7, using a stylus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Changed my netbook, 20 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had bought a Samsung NC110 but found it dreadfully slow. Fitting the memory module was simple, and the netbook was immediately transformed.
