2.0 out of 5 stars well made but arms a big issue, 30 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read the previous review and though a bit short in the arm would not be an issue, wrong.

I ordered a 16.5 inch neck which fitted my neck and chest fine, arms were 3 inches to short. The material and manufacturing look fine but not sure who this would fit.

In short if you find normal shirts have arms far too long for you I would recommend this shirt to you, if not look elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever and Entertaining., 30 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overall this is a very good collection of short stories covering a variety of genres.

Most have a clever twist, sometimes you'll see it coming, sometimes you wont.

There are included a couple of absolute gems of stories, Busy body, Deadline and Old Friend stand out for me, whilst the majority of the others are well written and imaginatively set. Not your usual plots rehashed.

The reason I hesitated over giving 5 stars is that there are a couple of cliched stories included also and some stereotypical characterisation in some others that leaves you feeling disappointed considering the quality of the other stories. I also feel some could have done with a final proof read just to ploish them off.

That said I enjoyed reading this collection and would recommend it as a good read and great value for money

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, clever collection, 14 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great collection of clever short stories. The characterisation is brilliant throughout and the authors use of language makes each of these little gems. They are shorter than what some people may expect but so much is packed into the space there is no sense of disappointment. I will definately keep and eye out for future works.

3.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative but not well written., 9 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read the reviews before buying and was disappointed.

The plot and the pacing are good but the actual writing itself is quite poor. You will not come across a new metaphor or clever description at any point. The characters are very stereotypical and the action stops for large periods while the author shows a piece of research he has done about something you really don't care about.

This said given the price of the novel and having read other books in the genre it's priced about right and the idea behind it is good. Just don't expect to much.
