1.0 out of 5 stars Very shoddy - avoid, 21 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Disappointing - a lesson that you get what you pay for...

Very cheap looking and shoddily put together like a cheap print - pages not straight and cardboard covers

Bought a few for party bags but too rubbish to give out. Will give to charity

Holds 2. Thought they'd be more compact as a bit big for the average pocket. Not very secure closed either

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very robust, 21 Mar. 2015
Table is good but chairs not very robust. 6 months in we broke one, a year later a second is in it's last legs - literally...! Material stains easily too but I have young (messy) kids

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing - no staying power, 20 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Alphabet Scooter Stickers (Toy)
Very disappointing. Only one of each capital letter and others limited. First letter fell off (clean surface) in a few weeks. Now his name looks mad! Had to begrudgingly buy a second pack...

1.0 out of 5 stars Infuriating unconvincing pap. Why does everyone love it?, 25 Sept. 2001
I hated it, absolutely completely and overwhelmingly hated it. The characterisation is terrible and infuriatingly painstakingly studied. Emotions are either overly dissected and laid out on a plate, or skipped over for the sake of a feeble event of questionable symbolism. All the characters are clumsy caricatures and not allowed to develop into whole credible people, just acting as platforms for the authors 'clever' little diversions. Infuriating. Arrrgh. I glared my way angrily through to the end just to be done with it. I can't believe the hype. I hated it. I truly can't understand the mass appreciation and critical acclaim. Grrr. Minimum starage granted.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull as dishwater, 21 Sept. 2001
This review is from: Super-Cannes (Paperback)
Superficial, two-dimensional, predictable, and about as gripping as a very un-gripping thing - see, I'm too inspired to even think up an appropriate analogy. I just finished the book out of pure stubborness to get rid of it and it's going straight to the nearest second-hand book shop as my revenge. The characters have less depth than the average cardboard cut-out, and about as much dynamism. The dialogue is false and entirely unbelievable. Even the setting, which should have been novel, is poorly represented and just comes across as a dull sunny suberbia at the best of times. Don't bother. When I got to the end I even had to check my edition wasn't missing pages. Nothing happens except the obvious and that is dreary enough. I was gutted, I'd expected much much more. I give it one star if only because the no star option on Amazon doesn't exist. Super-Cannes = Super-Let-Down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blows all current writing out of the water, 21 Sept. 2001
Greene is warm, honest, genuine and a pleasure to read. His books lack the superficiality, clumsy effort or eagerness to please of so many current best-sellers. Timeless, human and well able to stand the test of time. The characters are believable and exude a real warmth despite, or maybe because of, their complexities. The books enable you to float through the pages as effortlessly as breathing. I'm a recent convert to Greene as a result of the recent repackaging/relaunch via Amazon. There's no turning back. Read and enjoy and keep on going through the whole collection. I certainly will!
