1.0 out of 5 stars These dont work with the old 1980s card, 13 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these to run in my old Knightrider, beach buggy and f1 gp metal 1980s darda cars. They didnt work, the cars wouldnt move at all. Complete waste of money, I bought 3 at a cost of £36. It says on the packet that they work with all Darda cars. Not true.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a decent suspenseful page turner, 2 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I particularly liked the writing style in this book. The story generates a page turning suspense and it has an involving and engaging plot. Absolutely great value for money at 99p.

A summary of the mythical chinese Monkey King character. Not a full book but quite interesting and fun. Quick read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Badly advertised by Kindle, 27 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When this came out Kindle described it as George RR Martins new book. It is actually the 2nd part of his most recent book which has been split in two. Because Kindle misdescribed it and it had a different name to the all in one book I bought it. It only took a few minutes to realise what had happend. Kindle you idiots, whst a waste of my time trying to figure out how to get a refund on your obscure website.
Dont let it happen to you, its very annoying.

3.0 out of 5 stars This book is way too expensive for Kindle, 22 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is far too expensive for kindle. Its a great book just get it in paperback, I would definitely have no problem recommending this its very original and entertaining. The second book in the series is sometimes bundled in with this and that is also great (King Kobold Revived).

Wilbur Smith you should cover your face in shame. This book can only be described as truly awful. As someone else states: Reader in Peril. What he said...

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful Ghost writer?, 28 Dec 2011
Neal Asher cannot have possibly written this. This book is very badly written, it grinds along with its weak plot, boring characters and unimaginative detail.
Asher is clearly resting on laurels, or has been lured into churning out weak pap by his publishers.
We want the quality back please.
