5.0 out of 5 stars Truffault films, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have not watched all of them yet, and would have liked Wild Child- L'enfant sauvage- to be included, which I bought separately. They seemed quite good value, and I struggle to find classic films or French films locally. The box includes Shoot the Pianist; The 400 Blows; Finally, Sunday!; The Woman Next Door; Anne and Muriel; and Jules and Jim. I have long been a Truffaut fan and saw most of them years ago when studying Film and Media. They are mostly PG, with 2 12s and a 15. In French with English subtitles.

5.0 out of 5 stars memory for samsung netbook, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I used this to replace a 1 GB memory module in my Samsung netbook and it speeds it up just as I hoped. Was not too tricky to replace using a very small screwdriver. Just a few minutes fiddling to get it in tightly. Has made my husband happier because he likes to have several windows open at once and the netbook struggled with that before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for those interested in writing or reading poetry, 15 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: On Poetry (Hardcover)
Inspiring to a young poet. Engrossing for an older reader of poetry. Uses great examples of old and modern classic poems. There was a good review in the Guardian which led us to it. Very good on the 'black' and 'white' of a poem; spaces, pauses, line breaks, punctuation, structure generally. His playful tone and use of a metaphorical tutorial group to demonstrate different styles and approaches was entertaining to us, although some people might find it odd.

5.0 out of 5 stars great graphic novel, 18 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent series of graphic novels with wonderful illustrations and exciting plot with surprises. Fat and easy reads, would suit reluctant reader probably. My 10 year old loves them. He has 4 so far, but there must be more to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars J D Bug scooter, 28 Sept. 2011
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought a black one last year for my son (now 10) and have bought a red one for my heavy 9 yr old neice. They are much stronger than previous cheap scooters we have had, and strong enough for me as an adult to have fun on too. They go very fast in our local park. Takes a bit of getting used to how to fold them, because of a safety device I think, but works well. Only problem we've had is the strap came off my son's eventually, but I think we could fix it on again if we got round to it.

This review is from: Nerf Dart Tag 36 Pack Darts (Toy)
Came quickly. Son loves nerf guns and taking them apart to 'mod' them. Bullets soft if they hit someone and visible when they fall on the floor!

Needed by my daughter for GCSE Music. When first ordered did not arrive. Maybe postal problem. As soon as I queried it Amazon arranged to send another first class though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as realistic as some I've seen in B & Q, 14 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivered quickly, not as expensive as some others,7 ft high so suits our high-ceilings, but the lighter green spiky parts are very bright and artificial looking. Have put it together apart from bottom row so far and it is straightforward but time consuming. Not all that stable feeling and a little thinner than I expected from the pictures. Should be OK once decorated. Feel a bit dissappointed that I didn't hold out for a B&Q Eiger which was out of stock but might have been better.
