2.0 out of 5 stars Boring and poorly written, 14 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Save your money. There are train timetables written with more pace and spark. Typical boy grows up plot that somehow manages to make one of the more interesting periods of English history less credible than an episode of Dallas.

3.0 out of 5 stars Losing the plot, 14 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These were fresh and interesting but now are becoming wooden. The attempt to include second hand Davinci Code mysticism and the grail myth is both poorly done and a bit pathetic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good idea dragged too far and now disappearing inside itself, 14 Aug 2014

This review is from: Devil Said Bang (Kindle Edition)
This series was funny but is now just self-possessed.

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: £87.95

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.

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.
