My Sister's Keeper
My Sister's Keeper
Price: £5.69

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough, exhausting, heartbreaking. Can you handle it?, 20 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a tough book to read, concerning as it does the terminal cancer of a teenager, and her family's desperate attempts to keep her alive for as long as possible, or even to save her.
At times darkly funny, always human, this difficult story is superbly delivered by the author.
She uses a risky, but effective technique of telling the story from the differing perspectives of each of the characters (a technique recently employed successfully by Liz Nelson in "Unravelling Oliver"). So the reader intimately experiences the harrowing dilemmas facing everyone involved in Kate's terminal cancer, and the impossible demands their parents make on her sister, Anna.
The individual and conflicting challenges facing each of those involved slowly unfold, and so the weight of this moral conflict is eventually imposed heavily on the reader, demanding that he/she resolve the difficult questions posed, and worse, demand that the reader take sides.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Band, great songs, great music!, 20 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Band (Audio CD)
What a great band The Band was, what great songs they wrote and delivered. If you love rock, country, Americana, or just great music, buy it.
Good notes included (in every sense of the word!)

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read - but forgettable, 20 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an exciting tale, well told, if ultimately forgettable. The author paints a gloomy picture of Vienna which suits the dark mood of the story. Nice unexpected twist.

4.0 out of 5 stars iPhone 5s perfect fit, 20 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case fits my iPhone 5s perfectly, and an added bonus that it grips most shiny surfaces (i.e., car dashboard) so that it doesn't slide all over the place. It's soft and slips off easily for cleaning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect product, 29 Jun. 2014
There should not be much one can say about a product like this, however having had some serious difficulty with a similar product for another tablet, I think it's important to say that:
it actually fits the iPad mini; it's hard wearing and robust; it looks great (not cheap and nasty); it arrived quickly; decent price; all things you should expect with this kind of product but sadly not always delivered!
Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent novel, 29 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the best books I've read in recent times. It's complex (but deceptively simple in the early chapters), compelling and quite original in both it's telling and storyline.
It opens dramatically, involving a savage assault by Oliver on Alice. He tells the reader in a somewhat self-serving way of what led to the assault and he details the assault itself.
Numerous characters in their lives then relate, from their own perspective, their involvement with the novel's two main protagonists, husband and wife, Oliver and Alice, and this is the key to creating an intriguing tale.
In real life, none of us ever has the complete story, and Liz Nugent cleverly uses that fact to slowly unfold her story in layers - most readers will leap to conclusions early on, only to have those challenged as new characters reveal new aspects to the lives and history of Oliver and Alice's complicated life.
Rivetting!


Razorsharp Razor Blade Sharpener/ Cleaner
Razorsharp Razor Blade Sharpener/ Cleaner

Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent money-sacing product, 29 Jun. 2014
i shave every day and with luck the very most I used to get from blades was two weeks. However since I bought this in December 2013 (posting this end June 2014) I've used less than 6 blades.The blade I'm using now is still giving me perfect shaves, and has been in use since early May, so this one is heading for the 2-month mark!
It takes time to get the post-shave cleaning right and perhaps some negative reviewers have not taken enough time to experiment with this product.
For shaving I only use total solution so I use a very cheap gel or foam to clean the razor after each shave; I also use a very firm nail brush to clean the blades, so that probably helps.
This is an excellent, money-saving product that does precisely what it's makers claim, although I'm sceptical about getting 150 shaves!

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't fit, 15 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got two iPhone5 covers from this company, one fits perfectly, but this "rain drops" one is too small. It was suggested to me that my iPhone5 (colour blue) is slightly wider than the black or silver iPhone5. Can this be possible? And why did the second cover fit perfectly?
The cost is so little it's not worth sending it back.

5.0 out of 5 stars still going after 6 months, 7 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wanted a cheap watch for a safari trip, this was very cheap and it's still working perfectly. It survived swimming and snorkelling. Since the safari, I use it for cycling and the potholes don't hurt it all. Can't say the same for my old bones.
