5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, 2 Jun 2014

Love this bag! Gorgeous colour, lovely soft texture, and lots of space inside for papers. It's a perfect size - not too big or too small - and several people have remarked on it. Wishing I'd bought two for when this one gives out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 2 Jun 2014

Bought this some time ago and like it very much. It's smart, and surprisingly durable and long-lasting for the price. Will definitely by buying another when the current one (eventually) gives up the ghost.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading description - does not work for the Kindle Paperwhite, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought one of these in December last year only to find that the product wasn't as described: it does NOT work for the Kindle Paperwhite (as the title suggests) but only works for the Kindle Touch. When I put my Paperwhite in then the magnet in the back kept making it go into standby.

I emailed the seller to point this out, and was told "This case is for the Touch but the Paperwhite will fit in but the function does not work" (which begs the question of why they imagine a Paperwhite owner would want to buy it if it's not going to work with their device). Not only does the function not work, it actually makes the Paperwhite unusable as it keeps putting itself into standby mode.

Completely useless; I returned it to the seller and suggested that perhaps they may want to amend the item heading to clarify that this is for the Kindle Touch only, however at the time of this review I can see that they have not done so but still advertise it as being for both the Touch and the Paperwhite. Definitely would not recommend!

Good sized container, watertight. Perhaps slightly expensive for what it is, but seems durable and will last for a long time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good story, but didn't like the voice of the main character, 2 Jun 2014
Got this book out of my local library, and have to say that by the time I finished it I was pleased I hadn't spent any money on it.

I hadn't read any of the Flavia books previously, and perhaps this may not have been the best one to start with. I found the plot engaging, and some of the secondary characters entertaining, however I'm afraid I found it very difficult to warm to Flavia, the narrator of the book. She comes across as being a bit pompous and know-it-all, managing to talk down to the reader in a way that I found rather annoying, and by the end I was definitely skimming large sections of her exposition.

Apart from Flavia's voice (and despite the few Americanisms that somehow found their way into a story set in Britain in the 1950s!) I enjoyed the mystery plot. But unfortunately this hasn't inspired me to seek out any more of the Flavia books.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very poor formatting, 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was very disappointed by this book - full of typos, formatting errors, and inconsistencies in the typography that detract from the reading pleasure. Definitely would not recommend to others looking to buy the collected Sherlock Holmes works.
