Outdoor Garden LED Solar Insect Killer (Bug Zapper) & Lantern Light
Outdoor Garden LED Solar Insect Killer (Bug Zapper) & Lantern Light

1.0 out of 5 stars Rather Disappointing, 1 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Doesn't give out great light, and makes no difference, as far as I can see, to the number of mosquitoes landing.


The Successor
The Successor

Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Very readable, 1 April 2014

This review is from: The Successor (Paperback)
Though, IMHO, does not have the depth of 'Broken April'. But as an allegory of power and the fall of the powerful, pretty good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable for the money, 1 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's alright, but I would like the magnet t the back to be a bit bigger/more powerful. You have to be careful when re-setting it not to knock it ff the fridge, but I guess if you just had it on a surface that might not be an issue.


The Things They Carried (Flamingo)
The Things They Carried (Flamingo)
by Tim O'Brien
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Very powerful and engaging, 1 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had to read this for work, and for some reason thought it would be some sort of glorification of the US involvement in Vietnam. But it is a sensitive, thought provoking and highly readable series of stories based around the author's experiences - from being called up and wondering whether to run over the border, to the experiences of ordinary people during and after the war. It goes far beyond Vietnam. I would highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Graet juicer, 1 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pleased with this. We've had a few juicers in the past but they did not seem strong enough to do the job. This one works extremely well thus far. Basically it is powerful enough to the job, which other juicers were not. Two small gripes. First, I would like the plastic bit that the awl fits into on the front to be removed just to make the wipe down easier. Second, the manual, states it is wired to the American voltage (150v?, can't remember off the top of my head) rather than the UK 220v. Turns out it is suitable for a 220v system, but did have a moment of anxiety. Other than that, very pleased with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good football, 1 April 2014

I've given it a 5 since I cannot think of anything wrong with it. Does what you would expect a football to do for an indoor game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Novel, 28 Feb 2013
This review is from: Busconductor Hines (Paperback)
Captures the idiom of Glasgow dialect extremely well. There is a lot of swearing, but it would be difficult to see how a novel intended for 'grown-ups' could avoid this if it is trying to be a naturalistic attempt to capture how real people think and talk. Expplores some very big issues in an intelligent and perceptive manner.

2.0 out of 5 stars Financial Times Guide to Personal Tax 2011-2012, 22 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Covers the basics reasonably well, but too often does little more than refer you to/repeat information given in the guiding notes that come with the personal assessment forms. However, my biggest two gripes are:
1. Many of the references were to 2010 - 2011. At times I had to check the front cover to make sure I hadn't bought the guide to the previous year by mistake. That is pretty poor/lazy proof reading, and does beg questions about how accurate other parts of the book may be....
2. The section I was most interested in (non residence) was very skimpily treated with the advice to seek professional guidance. Very disappointing.
