The Complete Navarone 4-Book Collection: The Guns of Navarone, Force Ten From Navarone, Storm Force from Navarone, Thunderbolt from Navarone
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stories and great value, 7 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This four-book collection consists of the two Navarone books by Alistair Maclean ("The Guns of Navarone" and "Force 10 From Navarone"), plus two by Sam Llewellyn ("Storm Force From Navarone" and "Thunderbolt From Navarone"). The first two need little introduction, being classics of their genre: in particular, "Guns" is one of the all-time great war stories, and was also made into a smash-hit fillm. "Force 10" is also a highly enjoyable read, although the associated film was less successful. If you don't already have these two books, this collection is worth buying for them alone.

If you enjoyed the original two books, is the collection worth buying for "Storm Force" and "Thunderbolt"? I would say definitely yes. They have a similar feel to the originals. Of the two, I preferred "Thunderbolt", as taking place in the same theatre of war as the original "Guns" and being not dissimilar in theme. Sam Lllewellyn provides faithful depictions of the three main recurring characters, and there are plenty of twists and turns in the stories just as Maclean fans would expect.

Iomega 32885 CD-RW 52x32x52x USB 2.0 External Drive

5.0 out of 5 stars Robust CD/DVD reader/writer, 7 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This CD/DVD reader/writer is a great solution if you want an external drive that is more substantial than the current very thin examples that have no opening drawer. My previous example of this model lasted for many years, and gave excellent service before eventually ceasing to read CDs properly. Highly recommended.


Sir Colin Davis Conducts Schubert
Sir Colin Davis Conducts Schubert
Price: £14.40

5.0 out of 5 stars Magisterial Schubert performances, 7 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although Sir Colin Davis was known for the breadth of his repertoire, Schubert may not be the first composer with whom you would associate him. And Schubert symphony recordings are a very crowded field, with plenty of superb accounts. If you are new to these wonderful works, this slim and modestly priced box set is an easy way to acquire a set of all the symphonies. And if you already have one or more sets (or some individual symphonies), Davis is definitely worth hearing: the Staatskapelle Dresden play with verve and precision, and the recording is fine.

Sony are to be congratulated for making this and other classic performances available in this way. Highly recommended.

What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions
What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions
Price: £10.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking and entertaining, 7 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This collection of questions and answers addresses what could be described as extreme situations, and elaborates on what would happen. Some of the answers may surprise you - for example, the effect of swimming in a pool of water that stored nuclear waste.

Overall, the book is more entertainment than anything else, but that seems to be exactly what the author intended. The main attraction is that it should make you think a bit about the way the universe works.

Dyson Flexi Crevice Tool - Fits all Dyson Vacuums
Dyson Flexi Crevice Tool - Fits all Dyson Vacuums
Offered by Kenco Spares
Price: £15.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful tool, 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tool is like the crevice tool supplied with many Dyson vacuum cleaners, but as the name implies also extends and flexes to get into awkward spaces. While it's desirable that the tool should spring back to its original straightness, it does so a little too forcefully: that is, maintaining the bend is a bit more difficult than could have been the case with a slightly different design and material. A detachable brush can be left on or taken off according to the task.

The tool is of reasonable quality, but nothing spectacular, with the plastic being a bit cheap-feeling and the extension action a little awkward.

Overall, though, this is worth buying if you need its unique capability, or just a replacement for the crevice tool that came with your Dyson.


Gigaset C430A Cordless Phone with Answering Machine and Anonymous Call Silencing (Pack of 2)
Gigaset C430A Cordless Phone with Answering Machine and Anonymous Call Silencing (Pack of 2)
Price: £54.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality phones, 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These phones are easy to set up and intuitive to use, with buttons that have clear functions and a logical menu system. A bonus is the neat clock (with hands) that is displayed when the phone is not in use - very handy if the phone lives on a desk.

The phones are light - maybe a little too light. Construction quality is good if not spectacular. The range of ringtones is not very impressive, and they are not very loud - you may need to turn the volume up to ensure the phone will be heard ringing at a distance.

Overall, still worth five stars.
