1.0 out of 5 stars Aussie twaddle, 9 Jun 2014

This review is from: Eyrie (Hardcover)
From the reviews on the back cover you feel you are in for a most enjoyable read. But like another reviewer it's hard to understand and I have yet to understand what it is all about. I got to page 128 out of 400 or so and I have now given up any hope of knowing what this Aussie author is going on about. So safe your money and get a proper read like Kate Atkinson Life after Life.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as I was expecting after reading the first two novels by Khaled Hosseni, 7 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The novel flips backwards and forwards in disjointed chapters and makes you wonder if you have missed an important section which would have helped you make sense.
In my opinion it is more a story of life in Afghanistan told over 60 years from different aspects of life and numerous inhabitants. The little coffee shop in Kabul is a far better and enjoyable read.

This was a disappointing purchase. Using this product made no difference to my watch. The watch showed it needed charging but the product made no difference whatsoever. Had watch checked and was proved to be ok so this item now being returned to amazon.

Not a book I would recommend which was a pity as Caro Ramsey has done better. But we all fail at something

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product, 2 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had doubts when I bought this product as to its ability to produce a wi-Fi connect for a desktop computer. But my doubts were soon dismissed as soon as I had it up and running. No complaints whatsoever about the setup or performance.
Would recomend it without doubt
