Prince of Fools (Red Queen's War, Book 1)
Prince of Fools (Red Queen's War, Book 1)
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars a great read, 22 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Why is it not possible to leave a rating without having to write a review . It's a bit silly.


Bosch AKE 40 Chainsaw (40 cm Bar Length)
Bosch AKE 40 Chainsaw (40 cm Bar Length)
Price: £89.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time and money., 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This chain saw is not well made and brake is particularly flimsy. The plastic is quite thin and not what you would normally expect from Bosch. The chain itself is also very difficult to adjust the tension on and requires fiddling around with a screw driver. Fitting or changing the chain is also difficult. The Makita is a much better buy for same price and is actually built properly.

Also, this saw is available on Amazon Prime, but the oil is not. This saw requires a thinner than standard chain oil. There's not much point getting the saw in 24 hours if the oil is still 3 to 5 days of waiting. There is no longer a sachet of oil supplied with these saws that another reviewer mentioned.

Original and well written. Just a shame it'll probably be another few years before his next book!
Stupid amazon word count.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless, 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The grass catcher frequently falls off and makes an already ungainly mower even more difficult to use. The mower is really only useful on a perfectly flat, hard and dry lawn. Even then this catcher misses most of the grass.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work on my 5s, 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I did not expect these to be able to be used with a stereo however they don't even work for charging. I ended up going to the Apple shop and paying for the Apple ones.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disjointed and poorly translated, 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The story behind this book and the author's endeavours to research it are very impressive and worthy. However it's quite hard to read and does not provide a readily pieced together picture of events, which is an indicator of poor translation and I found myself wishing I could read Spanish.


The Nightingale Cipher

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is okay as something new to read while travelling but it's probably not a book you would read again.


The Great Controversy Between Christ and Satan
The Great Controversy Between Christ and Satan
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A well known classic but dated, 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is well known and very thorough in its content but very stolid and I'd definitely a deliberate read rather than one which would one would undertake for pleasure (hopefully).


Balance (The Divine, Book One) (The Divine Series 1)
Balance (The Divine, Book One) (The Divine Series 1)
Price: £1.80

2.0 out of 5 stars Derivative and obvious, 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not badly written although a little wooden and lacking in zest but is very similar to many other books like it and really doesn't have surprises.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant but what a rip off, 3 Mar 2014
Wait until Amazon returns to the planet and realises only a moron would pay this much. When it's about £5/€5/$5 for the whole series, it will be great.
