Glad that I ordered this one as well as the 15 second card, which was awful and stopped working. This one worked fine but 40 seconds is a long time to fill on a greeting card.

1.0 out of 5 stars RUBBISH, 20 Nov. 2014

Rubbish. Stopped working after a few minutes. Sound quality AWFUL - the recording, before it stopped working, was barely recognisable as speech.


Internal Combustion: A Love Story
Internal Combustion: A Love Story
by Tom Morton
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Firing on all cylinders, 18 Jan. 2014
Tom Morton has been around in various public guises for a fair few years now as musician, journalist, author, presenter, broadcaster and evangelist, the last not being entirely confined to just the holy spirit. By this I mean the alternative spirits of the malt still and petrol refinery. One of his endearing and consistent qualities is that of sharp and amusing baring of the soul. It would rightly be considered an awful pun to say that he uses the vehicle of this book (but I'll use it anyway)to once again channels these seemingly inescapable religious beliefs in things other than religion. Clarkson preaches but Morton confesses and this book is a belter of a read.

Gelert CUT118, Folding Camping Toaster (Old Version)

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit fiddly but good enough results, 12 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Initial impressions are disappointing as are initial attempts to make toast. However, in the spirit of camping and putting up with a little inconvenience, it is soon mastered. I can recommend this - after all who wants to go camping with a proper grill in tow. Caravanners I suspect.

Brilliant for people who like to take the backs off and have a look inside but are a little shy of going this far, especially if the item being investigated is not actually theirs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Probably worth a visit - literary speaking, 12 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rather lightweight but then it does cover 100 sites so space is limited. At 69p it is a Kindle bargain but therein lies the problem - the illustrations are not at all well displayed on a grayscale screen. The printed edition is therefore much better in this respect but costs rather more. I suspect it would good used along with Google Earth to take a squint at some of the places that you may not visit but satellites can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good things come in small packages, 18 Aug. 2013

Excellent product, very portable and works extremely well. Great price too - why pay more for one with bells and whistles. I highly recommend this wee beasty.


We Need to Talk About Kelvin: What everyday things tell us about the universe
We Need to Talk About Kelvin: What everyday things tell us about the universe
by Marcus Chown
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't let the catchy title put you off, 3 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first Marcus Chown book I have read and would now actively seek out other titles by him. I have tried other books with similar catchy titles and found them to be rather insubstantial - not so this one. This is nuclear physics in very edible chunks.

Candy Girl: A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper
by Diablo Cody
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Candy Girl, 3 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It could so easily have been a quick way of making a buck, but it shows the author has the skills necessary to present the subject matter in a well written and offbeat way.

Part of a brilliant series of well researched and lavishly illustrated books. It would be great to see the series brought up to date.
