5.0 out of 5 stars There's Only One Elgydium, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The only toothpaste I will buy because it is one of very few that does not contain any artificial sweetener i.e. the dreaded SORBITOL or a variant thereof which you will find in every toothpaste in the supermarket or chemist. Or carrageenan which is also v bad for the gut. I ran out of elgydium once and had to use colgate; blurgh! The membrane in my mouth start to come off in chunks which indicated to me at least that bog-standard toothpaste is to be avoided. Three packs for less than a tenner is very good VFM.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like dark chocolate, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Addictive. If you like dark chocolate, this is a must try. It is definitely not sweet but not bitter. If you like 70% or 85% you will notice a difference. I find both of those too sweet since eating 90%. How it tastes also depends on what you have just been eating. It is not an after dinner type chocolate. It is best eaten alone or with coffee.

1.0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE the retailer who uses only one picture which you can't zoom in on., 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Awful. The picture is very flattering - cream and pale pink and a modern take on toile de jouy. You can't actually see what they really look like in this picture since it is so distorted in terms of colour and light. They look completely different in the flesh - chintzy in a very old fashioned, dowdy way. Like the sort of thing you might see in an old B&B that's full of brass hangings, doilies and antimacassars. They are more a kind of dirty-off-white than cream and the pale pink is more dark red and the overstitching doesn't help. They are just ugly. I am returning and having to pay 3.30 or 6 to return a 9.99 item is disgraceful! A complete waste of time and money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sold, 23 Jan 2014

This review is from: Lights out (Paperback)
I'm always rather wary about a lot of these sorts of books. I had had it in my wish list for a couple of years but was ambivalent about buying it. However, this book really did change my life. I had been suffering from a number of background health issues and decided, after reading a few other unhelpful books, to finally purchase it. I am very glad I did. Yes, ok, it is written in a somewhat conversational style but so what? Its not marketed as an academic tome - that's clear from the cover. Its meant for a wide audience not a handful of academics. Its an eminently readable, intelligible and enlightening book which makes sense of the relationship between us and our environment. It is a book that will leave a positive impression in some form and will almost certainly prompt someone to make even small changes to their life which may just turn out to be critical. Each person discovers something that they need out of it (provided they keep an open mind) but its not a manual or a 'how to'. Its more of a cautionary tale. For me, it was changes to my diet and sleeping routine which allowed me to regain my energy and feel 10 years younger.

4.0 out of 5 stars A much overlooked ABBA classic, 11 Jan 2014

This review is from: Summer Night City (MP3 Download)
The Abba chaps really knew how to craft a beautiful and unusual melody. This is one that people seem to forget about. It sounds like it was written yesterday. Just wish the extended version was commercially available. Its ABBA, what's not to like?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great brand, 11 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First off, Quest is a great and trustworthy brand. I have been taking their one a day multivit for years. So when it came to purchasing a probiotic, I looked up Quest straight away. I have been using their other probiotic, L. Plantarum with great success. When I finished them, I though I'd give these a try as they contain greater numbers of bacteria. My IBS is getting worse and I have to say these have worked very well; immediately calming my temperamental colon. With so much more gluten in bread and grains these days and the soil depleted of essential minerals, these little beauties are a must for anyone suffering digestive or gastrointestinal problems.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gaudy Bling, 11 Jan 2014
I purchased these in the dark blue and silver and they are quite nice; the contrast of blue and silver works. These on the other hand, are awful; they look like cheap tat. They just don't work; the green is too pale, the silver cubic zirconia and gold plate clashes; the overall effect is cheap and blingy. The picture is flattering. They look ridiculous on, like Xmas baubles. If you want to do yourself up as Xmas tree, they're ideal. Otherwise avoid. I'm just glad I only paid a few quid for them.

4.0 out of 5 stars British Classic, 11 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Underrated British classic; its a shame they don't make them like this any more; knocks all the glossy, airbrushed modern "gangster" movies into a cocked hat. The late 70's era and ambience contributes to the dark atmosphere. It is very violent in parts but its not glamorised violence; its real and disturbing in a way that few contemporary films achieve.

Overall, a story well told with great acting, pace and suspense.

5.0 out of 5 stars An emotional tour de force, 28 Dec 2013
Easily the best and most real adaptation of Tolstoy's classic ever made. This beats all the glossed up, anaemic, airbrushed Hollywood versions by a very considerable margin. Brilliant performances from all cast members. Both McCrory and McKidd are mesmerising; the chemistry between them fairly crackles and jumps off the screen. McCrory has a rare screen presence and her portrayal of the visceral, passionate and infuriating Anna is a tour de force; (the likes of the insipid pouting Keira Knightly could only aspire to such a performance). McCrory's portrayal of Anna's slow, wretched, emotional disintegration is hard to watch; her momentum towards a final tragedy is irresistible.

The photography deserves a special mention; the film is visually very, very beautiful and atmospheric. It does actually look like 19th century Russia - you can feel the cold air.

If you want to see some realism in and real care for Tolstoy's masterpiece; this is it. There is none better. Utterly brilliant.
