5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 17 Sept. 2014

Exactly the same as the old one, so a perfect replacement. This has the serial number 015478, which is the same as on the one that broke.

I can't fault this for the price. Not top quality but a nice lightweight top for cool summer evenings. Looks quite smart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and value, 6 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a sturdy bed, easy to put up and very good value for the price. My 14-year-old son slept on it for two weeks on holiday and was perfectly happy, although he did need a couple of thick blankets as a cushion under his sleeping bag. The only point to note is that anyone over five foot 10 might find it a little short. However, the positive to its size is that it fitted into the 'pod' in our tent when a longer bed would have been too big.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does NOT fit a 32mm rod, 21 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product description says: "All round floor tool to suit all 32mm rods". Wrong. The diameter of the connector on the head IS 32mm i.e. the same size as a 32mm rod, so it does not fit. Perfect for a 31mm or 30mm rod, but definitely not for a 32mm rod. To be completely fair, it does seem to be good value IF it fits (I've managed to find an adapter at the back of the cupboard under the stairs, so happy days).

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems to do the job perfectly, 20 Jun. 2014

Small, light and reliable. Seems ideal for beginners/intermediate, and perhaps also for people at a higher level. Certainly good value for the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a patch on Dead Souls, 20 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Taras Bulba is a bit of a clunker compared with Dead Souls and The Cloak. If you skip it you won't be missing much; think Ivanhoe with Cossacks replacing the English and Norman knights. Some good descriptions of life on the steppe though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turgenev is the best, 20 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: On the Eve (Kindle Edition)
Turgenev does frustrated passion better than any other writer I know of. And he packs more into a novella or short story than most writers manage in 500 pages, except possibly Chekhov, although in his stories the passion never really has a chance to get going. Anyway, read this and anything else by Turgenev, although consider carefully which translation you go for. Some are more accurate than others, although perhaps literal-minded accuracy does not always lend itself to the 'spirit' of the writing. Nabakov and others have criticised Contance Garnett for her translations. However, I think there is more feeling in some of her interpretations of Russian writers than in the more literal renderings. As always, it's a matter of taste.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and profound, 20 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Dead Souls (Kindle Edition)
I'll add to this review in future if I get round to it. Just to say if you like Dickens you'll like this. Think Pickwick Papers but without the boring bits. The dead souls 'scam' at the heart of the story is pure Russia. If you think it's too far fetched, do some research into the kind of wheeling and dealing that propped up the Russian economy in the 1990s; smoke and mirrors doesn't do it justice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Warm and comfortable, 20 Jun. 2014

These do the job in cold weather. I'd recommended them if you suffer from cold ankles or calves. They're substantial but not too bulky, also very soft.
