5.0 out of 5 stars Great build and acceptable sound quality, 11 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While the sound quality is not excellent, it is still better than of your standard headphones that came with your phone.

The build quality, however, is outstanding for the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars but the strap itself is very stiff and while it's leather it feels more like plastic on the wrist, 1 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very quick delivery, but the strap itself is very stiff and while it's leather it feels more like plastic on the wrist. That could be exactly what you could expect for the price though, so it's mostly my own fault. However, I'm still disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Almost unreadable, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lots of Words Beginning with a Capital Letter Rarely Makes a Good Fiction. Poorly written with a plot which is very hard to follow but there is no reward if you do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of real life examples and case studies, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Questionable references to Chomsky, but nevertheless a great collection of real life examples and case studies with a clear explanation of available teaching strategies and their positive and negative aspects.

3.0 out of 5 stars Extremely bulky, but with a kick stand, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Material feels very cheap and is not soft enough to push camera button through it.

The good part is that the black thing with a kickstand is detachable and can be used with almost any other case.

4.0 out of 5 stars No camera button, otherwise very good, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good fit and the only complain is the lack of a bump over a camera button so you can locate it easily. You can still push it through the case, but without a tactile hint it might take a couple of extra seconds.

2.0 out of 5 stars Description is not accucate, not tight enough, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The picture clearly shows two openings on the left hand side of the case so you can attach your Kindle to an Amazon light-enabled cover without having to remove the case first. The case that arrived did not have them.

It also isn't tight enough and has a distinctive 'plastic' smell.

If the above doesn't concern you then it does the job and the colour is bright and unusual which is good.

Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable and informative enough, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As I'm going to be the first commenter who hasn't met Jack Turpin personally I must say that this book would be still interesting to you even if you haven't met him as well.

Although it might be not if you have no interest in boxing and pre- and post-war Britain.

3.0 out of 5 stars Won't read again but don't regret it either, 31 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Miranda Road (Kindle Edition)
Read this book because it was mentioned in one of the local twitter accounts as set in North London where I'm currently based, and I'm curious about the books from the local authors, preferably not celebrities.

What I didn't like: connections to Archway, feminism, Thatcherism are weak and don't influence the plot much. The whole book is about relationships in a family and between other families and it could've been set anywhere really.

What I did like: Eloisa's part of the book was unexpectedly exciting while you could imagine describing the events from child's and then teenager's point of view might be more difficult that from adult woman's perspective which I also guess has much in common with the author.

3.0 out of 5 stars A rip-off, 31 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An essay masquerading as a book. Raises some valid points though, while they won't be new for you if you read a couple of other modern republican articles before.
