1.0 out of 5 stars FRUSTRATED BY AMAZON...!!!, 30 July 2011
Why does Laurie53 say this product is "Much cheaper than B&Q"...??? Amazon's web-page completely fails to indicate the length of this tape, so how are we to compare...???
Nor is there any picture enlargement facility provided and, given no notion as to whether the roll is 3m or 100m long, I can't even access a close-up view of the label ...!!!

This is infuriating, Amazon - and simply NOT GOOD ENOUGH...!!! And I therefore award only ONE STAR under protest...!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars SCALLYWAG CITY, 7 July 2011
A wonderful book that aches to be turned into a blockbuster movie. Brilliantly evokes the color and vibrance of an exceptionally idiosyncratic city - still the biggest port on earth, shipping 40% of the world's total when most of the action takes place. What a read...!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Insomniac, 15 April 2011
This review is from: Infinite Jest (Paperback)
Anyone utterly enamoured with modern America and the modern "American Way" will probably love this book. I just found it too American - much too American altogether...!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine Human Enlightenment from under the Ashes of Fallen Capitalism., 27 Feb 2011
This review is from: The Idea of Communism (Paperback)
Here, after more than a century and a half buried under an inexorable tide of deliberate political lies and manipulative misrepresentation, the progressive ideals of Marx and Engels re-emerge, more clearly set out than ever, and surely destined to inspire all 21st Century social visionaries and rationally enlightened men and women in every corner of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHERE IS IT...???, 30 July 2010
It's brilliant - every bit as good as Pinnocchio or Jungle Book. And I KNOW it is...! - so why doesn't Amazon UK stock it...???

4.0 out of 5 stars Size REALLY DOES Matter...!!!, 23 July 2010
I want to buy this - I really do...! But Amazon refuses to disclose the dimensions of its car sun-blinds, so I haven't a clue if it will fit my car or not...?

This is crazy...! Or, rather, putting up with such third-rate online marketing is crazy. Don't you Brits CARE what you're buying...?? Have you got so much money it just doesn't matter to you...???

Blimey - if ever the size of ANYTHING was critical - a car sun-shade has to be it...!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Attractive product - needs better description, 18 July 2010
This review is from: Fun Sport Golf Set (Toy)
I know it says kids should be 3+ years old, but I bought this set for my little granddaughter, aged 19 months - and she loved it from day one. Kids develop differently of course, and the only niggle I had is that Amazon don't seem to think it necessary to give prospective buyers the product's dimensions. It's not as if either they or their suppliers are easy to make contact with, so I just went ahead and ordered, hoping for the best. Still, the clubs turned out to be only a tiny bit too long and certainly look as if they'll last her a year or more yet. So I guess, as it happens, things turned out fine. BTW, the three brightly colored clubs are made of lightweight but rigid enough plastic and each one measures around 65cm long. So, along with two lightweight plastic balls in the bag, this attractive product promises much fun and very little prospect of impact damage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exploitation Explained, 7 Feb 2010
Amply illustrated throughout, this is required reading for anyone who really wants to understand the true meanings of terms like "Market System" and "Global Economy" - offering the clearest possible explanation of Capitalism's enduring but deceptively simple strategy towards world domination and exploitation of the dispensable many by the indispensable few. Whether or not you ever wanted to know where modern organized Socialism really began - or to disentangle the sham Communism so widely presented in The West from the genuine article that Marx originally envisaged - there is so much here and in easily digestible form, this book is an amazingly worthwhile, amusingly informative and throughly enjoyable must-read....!!! (PS., though why Amazon provide no cover illustration, I can't imagine...)
