1.0 out of 5 stars Great TV, terrible book, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Killing 1 (Kindle Edition)
If the TV series was excellent then this balances out the equation. It obviously started from a script but it is written like one but at a GCSE level & a failing one at that. The language is woeful, the narrative awful... Just avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best mouse mat, 27 Feb 2014

OK, it is huge at nearly twice the size of most keyboards but the surface is excellent providing good control & speed & being practically slip proof. Worth the cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars An all time favourite, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Forever War (Kindle Edition)
This is my favourite Joe Haldeman novel by some distance, if not my favourite science fiction novel. Time dilation, distance from those at home who have changed attitudes over the time of the war, the military economy & the utter senselessness of war are amongst the themes clearly a parallel to Vietnam but done with some verve & vision.


FiiO E17 Portable Headphone Amplifier and USB DAC
FiiO E17 Portable Headphone Amplifier and USB DAC
Offered by All-4-Less
Price: 99.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DAC & headphone amp, real value for money, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this with a classic iPod & Grado RS1 headphones with Apple lossless music & adding the E17 just improved both the sound & battery life of the iPod massively. I can't recommend this strongly enough. This just shows how mediocre the iPod's DAC is which is a shame, but add the E17 & you have a really good player.

3.0 out of 5 stars Error strewn, 27 Feb 2014

This review is from: Rama: The Omnibus (Kindle Edition)
Unfortunately the publisher did not see fit to proof read any of the books in this edition. The first book is good, the follow ups are merely OK & to my mind he didn't really know where to go with it. A missed opportunity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Useful but... It's a small but, though annoying in that the blue LEDs on the USB connections are very bright which is all well & good during the day but at night far too bright.


Planet of the Apes (Vintage Classics)

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget the films this is far better, an under read masterpiece of science fiction, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is surprising in that this is far superior to the films, both the Charlton Heston original & the later re-imagining. Though the shock seen in the original film was a standout it really failed to get the book which is subtler & more creative.

1.0 out of 5 stars Steer clear, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A complete waste of money for me. Despite the claims of compatibility with BMW it proved to be utterly useless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to his best, 27 Feb 2014

This review is from: False Idols (Audio CD)
An unusual album. Slow in pace but it sees Tricky back to his peak & for me a real grower.

1.0 out of 5 stars The most typographically error strewn digital book I've come across, 28 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Let's start by saying I like the work well enough, say 3 or 4 stars worth. Unfortunately the idiots who transfered this to digital are either illiterate or plain lazy, certainly no attention at all has been made to the countless typos. Were I the author I'd fire the publisher, it is beyond ridiculous. It is so bad that it detracts so much from the work as to leave you thinking only of the typos. Another transfer that has never seen a proof reader and proof again that they are worth the cost.
