1.0 out of 5 stars terrible product, terrible reception, terrible sound, fiddly, 9 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A lover of test match cricket, i bought this to allow me to listen to Test Match Special at work discretely. Oh dear. Fiddly controls, non-intuitive controls, extremely poor reception and very little volume control (to alter the volume of the unintelligible stuttering audio) make for a poor product in my experience. I accept that other people may have had good experiences with theirs, but do you want the chance and hassle of buying a 'duff' one?

3.0 out of 5 stars very small sizes, 20 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
to be fair, i only tried this boot on when it arrived, it was too small, so i sent it back and bought some moabs instead. a helpful sales assistant in blacks told me that unless a shoe has a waterproof membrane such as goretex, the waterproofing is usually in the form of a coating that degrades easily. i am a uk 9 but i needed a merrel uk 11


Absolution Gap
Absolution Gap
by Alastair Reynolds
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars rounds off the best trilogy since LOTR, 11 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Absolution Gap (Paperback)
Each book in this trilogy is a belter (Revelation Space, Redemption Ark, Absolution Gap), plenty of technology, science (quantum stuff, relativity stuff, cosmology stuff), good characters and a plot with enough twists and turns to keep you interested. The story does not fade or lose pace in this book, as I feel other famous series have (I got bored of Dark Tower quite quickly, I felt His Dark Materials severely lost its way in book 2, Harry Potter series was 1000 pages too long). Its not as easy on the eye as Greg Bear, or as 'classic' as Asimov, but as an all round pleasing read, I can heartily recommend this book / trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning sci-fi adventure, 8 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Revelation Space (Paperback)
This book simply blew me away (metaphorically). More accessible than the ramblings of Banks, more concise than Peter F Hamilton, yet no less amazing in scope, technology, plausibility and sheer story telling skill. LOved the characters, connected with the 'goodies', disliked the 'baddies' and ultimately cared about what was happening to them all in the story. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. Will be reading much more of his work.

2.0 out of 5 stars utterly disappointing and very predictable, 29 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think I've given up on this author. Having loved Excession, I found Consider Phlebas a bit dull. Feersum Indjun (spelling?) was very bonkers and Against a Dark Background I abandoned half way through. This was very incoherent. If you prefer linear story lines, dont read this, its all over the place.. flash back here, flash back there. Worst of all, was the twist at the end that was telegraphed in the early part of the book. Banks' sci fi is very pompous and indulgent. I find Greg Bear and Ian Hamilton much more accessible.

3.0 out of 5 stars nostalgic, if a bit bland, 29 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fire in Babylon [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
lots of things to love about this film... characters, hostile bowling, music. saw it about 6 months ago, and am struggling to remember any of it. To be fair, i had drunk half a bottle of cockspur rum to get me in the mood.

SPOILER ALERT!!!!!! A real page turner. Lent it to friend, who lent it to a friend, etc, etc. Solid read, good concepts and a good story line. The end of the world was a chilling read.

5.0 out of 5 stars funny, funny, funny, 27 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: South Park - Season 13 [DVD] (DVD)
As a 40 yr old, struggling to find comedy of real merit on TV, I find South Park's no-holds-barred approach to satire utterly refreshing (still). This series has many hilarious episodes. It simply delivers lots of laughs through all three disks.
