The Wasp Factory
The Wasp Factory

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint hearted, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wasp Factory (Kindle Edition)
A curiously effective book.
A narrative of one world view that is twisted by events long before they could influence them.
The book is disturbing and you can see why so many publishers shied from it. But it is well written, cohesive and draws the reader, unwillingly at times, through Frank's journey.
Five stars are warranted but the ending is just slightly rushed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning beginning to a unique series, 13 Jun 2013

This review is from: Wild Cards (Kindle Edition)
I had heard of the multi-volume collection that is Wild Cards but never really them.
For all that they are written by multiple authors these are consistent and well presented vision into an alternative Earth.
Super powers and super freaks combine with the 'naturals' to bring sometimes sad, sometimes uplifting, sometimes very adult but always engaging and enthralling stories.
Very impressed. Leaves you wanting more. Looking forward to reading the 20+ other volumes.
***Be warned, contains very mature themes.***

1.0 out of 5 stars This is a TOY, 27 Feb 2013

One has to say that product labeling in Amazon can at times be appaulling.
This a little gimmicky toy set to allow little girls to play hairdresser.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful movies at reasonable prices, 27 Feb 2013

Hitchcock at his best.

All three are thoroughly engrossing.
Dial m for Murder takes some beating though!

Recommended to all thriller fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Windows 8 Support - Ever, 27 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Negative first, then positives
I'd like to copy in the Support thread from Canon.
They have absolutely no interest in making this product work in Windows 8, in fact blaming Microsoft.
This is a worrying issue and dramatically reduces the value of the product.
The workaround is to save to USB/SD and print from that instead.
[blink]
The good news is that the product works very well, is fast (I was able to print full colour in <30 seconds), has a good image quality and paper ink seem robust.
The printer may even have been a 4/5 star item if not for the response form Canon Support.
