5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and inexpensive, 12 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had an automatic self-winding watch with the date for over 30 years until after several minor repairs it finally gave up the ghost. I'd hesitated looking for a replacement as I thought it would be very expensive. The watch shop recommended Seiko and I was pleasantly surprised that they weren't so dear. I wanted a simple design and thought I may as well go for the low end of the price range at around £50 if it was a good make, and I've been very happy with my choice. I had to go to a shop to get segments taken out of the bracelet which cost an extra £5, which I didn't mind as the watch seems such good value. After two weeks it's been keeping excellent time, though the date and day start changing an hour or so before midnight. I'm hoping it will last as long as my last one, which should see me out.

5.0 out of 5 stars handy fun presents, 4 Feb. 2014

I don't know why they sell these in threes, but the other two have made handy little fun presents to give alongside proper ones.

2.0 out of 5 stars no substitute, 4 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this in the hope it would save me having to hump a heavy tome around when i go to India, but it isn't a serious guide book, more like a series of adverts.

2.0 out of 5 stars don't buy on kindle for science, 4 Feb. 2014
I like the book's concept of using the Canterbury Tales as the model for telling the story of evolution. But the problem with kindle is that you can't enlarge diagrams and illustrations, which remain frustratingly hard to make out, and you can't easily access footnotes and references to something on another page. (When WILL kindle learn to enable readers to go to a numbered page?) I'll stick to novels on kindle in future, but not this kind of book.

3.0 out of 5 stars does the job, 30 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't want something where the suction pads couldn't support the weight, which can happen, but this has two pads and is just for tooth brushes so it works fine.


Judaism: All That Matters
Judaism: All That Matters

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely book, 30 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had agreed to do a talk on Judaism for our local humanist group and was looking for source material. By chance I read a review in the Jewish Quarterly which compared four recent books presenting introductions to Judaism and recommended this one. It is also commendably brief. It's a lovely book, friendly, well informed, well structured, presenting a very complex subject very clearly. It is also remarkably even handed eg on controversial issues like Israel.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice eventually, 30 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because the ad on Amazon said it was delivered fully made. When it arrived it was flat pack. I contacted the distributor who said the Amazon ad was in error. They offered me to return it for a refund or a 10% discount. I accepted the discount and spent around 2 hours putting it together - very tricky, but eventually when it was finished it was just what we wanted.

4.0 out of 5 stars larger high tech. replacement for SX125, 15 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace my Epson SX 125 which had developed faulty ink nozzles after two years. This is better in many ways- faster printing, able to print wirelessly from my wife's laptop in another room. But I'm a bit put off by the screen on the front - it seems over the top with technology. Loading the paper is a bit fiddly, like in rank xerox copiers, but I can get used to that and it's more secure than having an open paper feed on the top. I have to say it's large, I preferred the more compact size of the 125. But I'm sure there's lots this machine can do I haven't explored yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars welcome return, 7 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Little Criminals (Audio CD)
I lost my original copy years ago (well I have the box but somebody must have relieved me of its contents) and eventually decided to buy another copy. I'm so glad I did. This album just gets better and better with the passage of time. The overall atmosphere is brooding and slightly menacing combined with great sensitivity at times. Each song has created its own pathway in my memeory, they are all so good.

2.0 out of 5 stars mistaken soundtrack, 7 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bugsy Malone (Audio CD)
I made the mistake of thinking this was the film soundtrack. Actually it's the much inferior soundtrack of a more recent English stage production. The songs are still infectious, and the singing is good, but the band and the recording quality are amateurish.
