3.0 out of 5 stars A good looking piece of kitchen equipment, 22 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As with the kettle from the same range this toaster looks extremely good in your kitchen. It is sleek and has a gratifying lack of buttons for what is essentially a straightforward task. However, like most toasters I am not sure what it does that a grill cannot so if you have a grill in the kitchen you'd be best off with that in my opinion. When I've used it I've found that the toast takes longer to do than with other toasters and the toast produced does not match up to other models I've had in the past. In short, it's a reasonable buy if you don't have an oven with a grill, but if you do then stick to the traditional method.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb, value for money kitchen item., 22 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This really has been a fantastic product from the moment I got it out of the box. Compared to previous kettles it seems to be on a completely different level. The boiling element is so good that a QUICK cup of tea is suddenly a possibility. I really like the look of it with its silver colour and its compact design. Although any kettle is functional in essence you can always spot quality, and at the price on Amazon it is extremely good value for money.


GCSE English Text Guide - A Christmas Carol
GCSE English Text Guide - A Christmas Carol
by CGP Books
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.95

5.0 out of 5 stars An invaluable guide to the classic novella, 22 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First of all, I am something of a fan of A Christmas Carol, having 5 copies in book form and about a dozen film versions. As such I felt very well placed to review this revision guide. The content is superb, accessible in the right way and extremely insightful. It really gets in to the main elements of the story and the social points that Dickens was trying to make. The exam style questions are well thought through and very interesting to think about even if you're not doing a GCSE yourself. My daughter who is doing GCSE next year said that she would probably find it useful, but didn't want to look at the guide indepth as she might not study the book. The only thing I take issue with is the self-consciously 'yoof' style comments on the back. The content is good enough to stand on its own without needing a copy writer trying to use 'yoof' language that would have been out of date 10 years ago.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great fun if you treat it like a comedy, 12 April 2015
This review is from: Mr Turner [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
Last night I watched one of the most unintentionally funny films in years. I'm talking about Carry on Painting, or as you may know it Mr. Turner! It was such a bizarre film that I could only get through it by treating it as a comedy. Fortunately the lead role is a cross between a pig and a man, the scenes in the Royal Academy are like a Monty Python sketch with men shouting random phrases at each other, the walk from London to Margate goes via the Lake District and the entire film was dropped on the floor just before the premiere and the scenes possibly reassembled by a chimpanzee! Most fun I've had in ages!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for purpose, 25 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Small compact heater which does exactly what it says on the box. Ideal for the cold hallway at night, Just plug it in, switch on & forget about it. It's small enough that you won't bump into it in the dark & light enough to be attached to the banister. No noise made, no fuss, it just takes the chill away which is exactly what is needed in my home. It looks smart too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality for work or play, 26 Oct. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A superb product which adds a real touch of class to the important business of protecting your valuable tablet. The classy black patterned cover will perform the task of impressing your work colleagues as well as your friends. It is hard wearing with a really robust feel and once you open it up there are three grooves to fit your tablet into place at different angles. My advice is not to skimp on your tablet protection and to buy this even if it is a little more expensive.

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting concept, 11 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Rooms (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Although this is billed as Lauren Oliver's first adult novel, the same themes of the supernatural impinging upon the natural world are in evidence. The characters in this book are a family who have been ripped apart by secrets. The ghosts that share the house with them have clues as to these secrets but they cannot give the family any help. Their watching brief makes them rather passive characters which is the main reason why I don't think that this book touches the heights that Ms. Oliver's books usually hit. In many ways the story reminds me of Leisel and Po, her book for younger children, but in that book the interaction between the two worlds was much more in evidence and for that reason you really cared about the fate of the characters. By the end of this book I couldn't really care about the living or the dead and the denoument had little effect on me emotionally in the way her books usually do. As ever, her writing is lyrical in places and her talent for details shines through, but it is ultimately uninvolving. Diehard fans will enjoy this book on its merits, but for those new to Lauren Oliver try Before I Fall to fully appreciate her talent.
