4.0 out of 5 stars As has been said elsewhere this is a very nicely illustrated companion guide to the series, 12 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As has been said elsewhere this is a very nicely illustrated companion guide to the series, it's not perfect however. I was irritated by the lack of a world map showing at a glance where places were in relation to one another. You do get regional maps for each of the seven kingdoms and a few other areas of note. You do not get much in the way of new 'reveals ' for the main story. Obviously Mr Martin wants to keep a tight lid on that whilst leaving himself room to manoeuvre, hence we learn little new of the White Walkers etc. Some of the background history felt a little dry and laboured, probably as Mr Martin hasn't really written much to give it that feeling of relevance to the main story. So in summary, very nice, could have been more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film. Austere packaging., 1 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great film. Only given it 4/5 as the blu -ray came without any literature at all. Simply a case and dvd. Very minimalistic!

Couple of songs I wasn't keen on, but generally an up beat CD and a bargain at this price (£5).

These are colourful coasters. Quality is ok, card on cork backing, fairly standard for these type of coasters. I had hoped they may have been a resin for the price. Hence the 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely detailed model, 17 Aug. 2014
Nicely detailed model. You can choose wheels up/down, engine cowling open/closed. Bombs are option to add. The reason I gave it four is because I needed to shave off pieces of plastic to get one of the wheels to fit properly, and had to work on both engine cowlings to fit them and even then I'm not 100% happy with the result.

Decent printer. Inks are a bit pricey and the door trays seem a bit flimsy but it is easy to use and print quality is fine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a 'flush finish', 16 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as a replacement battery to keep our old laptop working for a bit longer. It did the trick, although it doesn't sit flush like the original battery did, which is irritating if you are used to working on a table top. Still, it wasn't a bad price and keeps the old laptop chugging along a while longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film, nice package., 16 Jun. 2014

Treated myself to a 'tin packing' as I really enjoyed the film. Obviously you pay a premium but it came with Blu-ray and standard dvd, and does look nice on the shelf.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little add on to the series., 16 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Read the main books and downloaded these to kindle as an add on. Killed some time on a train journey. They are short stories all right, but add a nice bit of background to the main characters etc

5.0 out of 5 stars Did the job., 16 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these for watching films/listening to music on my new laptop, which unfortunately had terrible, puny, and very quiet, built in speakers. These do the job nicely and for about £25 were a very good buy. The only slight criticism is that the cables could be a bit longer. Don't plan on putting them too far from the computer!
