3.0 out of 5 stars Pulp fiction, 18 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I a reasonably happy with the story. The book is quite well written but not high art. It is engaging and page turning though although the twists in the story are a bit transparent. I would say it is at the most capable end of the pulp fiction market, for reading on holiday

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems nice, 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have not used the swing which we bought for our granddaughters. It seems sturdy and of good quality. Just to say I did not expect a frame to be delivered too but some other reviewers did. It is not on the illustration so I did not think it would be supplied. I bought some pigtail swing hooks instead

5.0 out of 5 stars it is what it is, 13 Aug 2013

The hooks I bought seem of good quality. I have not used them yet but the proof of the pudding, as they say, will be in the eating.

5.0 out of 5 stars French holiday, 2 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Took this product on holiday as it is now required in France. I am sure an electronic alcometer would have been used already but it needs to be approved. Never used it so I hope it will be OK for next time. Delivered quickly and good value

My wife loves this stuff so a purchase of an industrial sized bottle is well worth it. Very good value and delivered very quickly. It smells lovely too

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value and works well, 2 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Obviously time will tell as to how robust this product is but I can say that it works very well and holds my new tablet perfectly. The layout of the keyboard is a little strange because it is smaller than usual and it is American format with no sign. This is fine and I am sure I will get used to it. Otherwise an excellent product for a good price

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I received my Neocore tablet yesterday and charged up overnight. It is my first tablet but I managed OK as I explored. I downloaded AVG free for Androids easily from the store as my first step and all is OK. As to the longevity, time will tell. Previous laptops I have had have not been that robust. I bought a little stand/case/keyboard as recommended on Amazon and that works well too (only 9). Altogether I am very happy with the product...stunning for the money.

The only small gripe is that the print in the little starter manual is pale grey and very small so I had to do without

I will download the full manual from the website

3.0 out of 5 stars Just OK, 14 Jun 2013
This review is from: School For Scoundrels [DVD] (DVD)
For those who think this is hilarious, i just think the standards of hilarity must have slipped since the original film was made in 1959. The nuanced performance of Alistair Sim is incomparable, with the naieve Ian Carmichael bumbling through life before he discovers the secrets of Lifemanship.

It is an OK watch but I think it loses the spirit of the original story and it is hard to define it as a re-make.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice watch, 11 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The watch face itself is a bit more blingy than it appears on the photos and has a radial sheen scalloping on the inside panel. It is all the nicer for it and looks really good. Naturally the tim keeping is excellent and it withstands swimming well even in the sea....whoops I meant to take it off.
