5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, excellent and on and on, 22 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dark Lies the Island (Paperback)
From beginning to end, excellent. Kevin Barry's already the finest Irish writer of today, and he's getting better and better with everything he does.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job but not the "coolest" thing around, 22 Aug. 2013

Fits the handset really well and provides good, effective protection. It's not altogether cool, though - something my grandfather would approve of, but unlikely to be too popular among the cool kids.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't fit handset properly, 22 Aug. 2013

Complete waste of money. Handset constantly falls out - so what's intended to protect actually risks damaging it. Aside from that, it's made of cheap plastic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Is the intention to frustrate?, 21 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't actually review this lock because I've yet to manage to fit it to my bicycle - and I haven't got time to mess around trying. Why on earth are there no instructions???? Pure stupidity. Nor are there any youtube instructional videos....so utterly thick, Abus.


Punctuate It Right (Classic Reprint)
Punctuate It Right (Classic Reprint)

1.0 out of 5 stars Barely readable, 21 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've never before encountered a book with such poor quality print. Every page looks like the unfortunate product of numerous photocopies/xerox copies - really, really awful quality. Mostly, it's just uncomfortable and annoying to struggle to read it, in other parts it's actually illegible. Am surprised that Amazon are selling this edition. The book itself is excellent, but go for a different publisher.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but some glitches, 20 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really nice computer to work on, smooth and comfortable. Like others say, there is quite a lot of superfluous software pre-loaded. Seem that most of this would only be of interest to a minority of users, so seems odd that we all get it. Surely would be better to have 10% of buyers having to go to the trouble of loading up this stuff than to have 90% have to go to the trouble of removing it. Still....

The only major criticism is that, while it functions smoothly when all is going well, it freezes more often than an eskimo's fanny. A little irritating.
