5.0 out of 5 stars Its an Inner Tube. What can you say?, 25 July 2013

The product arrives in record time. Sadly it was the wrong one. One email to the supplier and the correct replacement was posted the same day and arrived next morning. Fitted onto bike in moments, and after a month of hard use is still working fine. Cant say much other than great service, fast delivery and it does its job. No idea if its cheap or not but getting it was hassle free despite getting sent the wrong one initially. Top service and good product.

This review is from: Schleich Tyrannosaurus Rex (Toy)
These are not cheap but are brilliant models of dinosaurs. Sturdy, scary, lifelike (ie the toy looks like the kind of thing on Jurassic Park.....) the recipient of this gift went bananas for it. Any dino lovers out there will be happy!

This review is from: Doctor Who Anti Time Device (Toy)
We bought this as a treat for an 8 year old doctor who fanatic. He loves it. Flashing lights and different sounds makes acting out the Dr Who episodes so much fun. Its never left alone, and I cant complain about the constant noise as it shows the thing is being well used. Had it a few weeks and batteries are still going which is amazing. If anyone has a kid that loves the Doctor shows, that kid will just love this toy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok as this stuff goes, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As someone that dreams at times of a life in the sun Ive read a few of these type of books. Its Ok. Does not seem to know whether its about the author, his family or the "new life". The end kind of falls flat as well. Bought it cheap so cant complain and its worth a quick read.


AURIC ALARM CLOCK

This review is from: AURIC ALARM CLOCK (Kitchen & Home)
I usually use my Iphone for an alarm, but its developed a knack of switching off overnight with no alarm in the morning. I wanted something pretty cheap that would wake me up. The Auric was pretty cheap, certainly feels cheap - very light and insubstantial, and came without batteries. The light is good, and clear and powers down to save the batteries etc. The crucial bit - the alarm, gets there in the end as its a crescendo, but I would have hoped for louder.

Overall ok.

This review is from: Schleich Allosaurus Playset (Toy)
We have a son who is a dinosaur fanatic. This product, and several other Schleich models were purchased, and he was delighted. They are great for play, and the detail of the model is superb. When compared to scientific drawings and models in museums, these Schleich models completely match them. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy, 10 May 2013

We have a knife set that is 10 years old, and periodcially I have sharpened then with a basic handheld sharpener. Its fair to say they were pretty well useless. I bought the Andrew James sharpener and was astonished at the results. I had to run the knives through the whole sharpening process 3 or 4 times, but the result is tremendous. Wish i had bought the sharpener years ago.

Just one point, it arrived with no instructions. Selling a machine where the user will insert carving knives into it, and not providing instructions for safe use is pretty daft. That said, I emailed Andrew James via Amazon and within an hour had an email with instructions.

Overall, you cant buy a decent knife for £15 so to get a sharpener that will deal with an entire set of knives in 30 mins is tremendous value. If the thing breaks down tomorrow and needs throwing away, I have still saved a fortune on buying new knives!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine for dipping into, 1 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lost London (Kindle Edition)
This book gives a page or two to some famous london landmarks, and to some obscure places that Ive never heard of. It was cheap, but a bit disappointing as it really does give the smallest detail of some places where there is clearly so much more to know. That said, for anyone with a passing interest in London its an easy read and mildy informative.

Other reviewers have commented on the comparison with Igulden's series. This is not quite as masterful but comes very close. A great story, with fast paced plot and well drawn characters. For less than a pound its the best value you will get. Buy it.

I have never referred to any novel as enchanting. From the first few pages I was gripped by this story. The characters are so well developed, the story is interesting, and the descriptions of London and Australia make you feel you could have been there. I am a pretty tough audience to be honest, but this novel was an absolute gem. I have already bought the follow up novel. Im almost relucatant to read it in case its not as good as the first, and I dont see how it can be. Highly recomended.
