5.0 out of 5 stars A handy piece of kit, 19 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great piece of kit which enables you to view what is on your phone on the tv. The only issue we had was that my husbands phone was newer than mine and wouldn't sync until I had linked mine and then updated the software. Luckily we both have HTC's! Other than that, it works well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping plot that leaves you unable to put the book down, 19 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Killing Time (Paperback)
What a gripping story....right from the very first page! A really engaging plot that has you drawn in to the emotional rollercoaster of a young man who is kidnapped and held for a ransom by a Mexican drugs cartel whilst on the holiday of a lifetime. The descriptions of the land and it's people, both good and bad, leave you literally being able to reach out and touch them. The chapters are preceded with a small snippets of real statistics and information relating to the country and its war on the narcotics trade and it's sobering to know that this is a blight on such a magnificent country and makes the tension of the plot line feel all the more real.

5.0 out of 5 stars The gift of choice, 20 Jan 2014

A great idea for enabling someone to choose what they really want, rather than get something they then have to exchange or put in a cupboard to never see the light of day!

i love this series of books. Great characters and great stories. They were a pleasure to read and grabbed my attention from the start. the historical aspects are interesting and woven into the stories in such a way that you don't feel you're receiving a history lesson! I couldn't put the books down and am looking forward to rereading them again soon.

I know some people say that vouchers are a lazy gift to give but I disagree. I love receiving them as I can then choose exactly what I want, when i want, and there is no fear of offending someone by returning a gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing but brilliant, 22 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you haven't read the books then you may not know how dark this trilogy is. The story line has a disturbing thread running all the way through it with sub plots weaving their way through the collection of characters. It's not always pleasant viewing hence the 18 rating but it is a superb plot and the extented version means you get the full story. It's in Swedish with sub titles and after the first 10 minutes you don't even notice you can't understand what they are saying! There is an English dubbed version but we chose to watch the original instead. It's well acted, well directed and nicely shot in my opinion. This is no picnic to watch but it's compelling viewing and we will watch this again and again over the years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Bond film, 22 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok, so Daniel Craig is a blonde Bond but hey, we can ignore that little fact given he is a believable Bond incarnation. This film has spectacular visual effects, an emotional plot line and strong characters which, in my opinion, are well acted. This is my favourite Bond film so far. If you like your Bond films on the cheesey side then this one may disappoint. If you like your Bond films to be pithy with a dash of Hollywood then you will love it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Value for money, 19 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived promptly and well packaged. If this is the first time you have had a case with this type of plastic case which secures the phone in place, then be warned. Within the first few days the corners will crack and then bits will fall off. At least it does with the HTC design of phones, I can't speak for other phone brands. However, that said, the phone stays in place securely within what's left. i know that doesn't sound as though the product is any good but it's fine.....just be warned that it might happen. The value for money is excellent as you get a cloth (grey), screen saver and a stubby little stylus which plugs into the jack port when you're not using it which is handy to keep it safe. The padding on the case is sufficient and the cutouts etc all matched up where they are supposed to. Despite the plastic chipping at the corners it is well worth buying as it keeps the phone safe and secure. The magnet catch is also strong enough to hold the top flap folded back when you are using the phone though you obviously have to drop it down when using the camera. That is the main consideration when deciding to either use a case with a flap that covers the screen or just a back case. It is a nuisance when you want to use the camera but it does protect the screen when you're carrying it around in a pocket or bag. For the price it's worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars I haven't read the book but the film is great!, 25 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haven't read the trilogy so don't know how closely this follows the details in the book but it does differ slightly from the Swedish version of the same film. Daniel Craig is excellent as are all the cast and like the Swedish film the whole look and feel of the piece is dark and moody with an underlying sense of tension. The subplot of Lisbeth's life is uncomfortable viewing but it has made her who she is and her emotional vulnerability at the end is one of the details which differs from the Swedish version. Both versions are good films and have a similar feel but I felt that this version has the edge. There is the bonus of it being in English and not having to concentrate on subtitles but I also preferred the portrayals of the characters.
