Pretty terrible. I know this is written by an America and yes its an adult book, but the language is weird and doesn't make it an enjoyable read.

Decent enough coveralls for the price, well made and in all honesty, if your careful you could likely get up to 5 uses from these.


Fifty Great Things to Come Out of the Midlands
Fifty Great Things to Come Out of the Midlands
Price: £0.00

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, though a read once and never again type of book., 15 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Possibly, the only reason I brought this was because it was free. Its OK, but there are certainly better things that have come out of the Midlands that didn't make it in to the book.

Could be made better if this was a series with other titles giving 50 great things to come out of other areas of the UK.

Like my review title says, this is more a ready once and throw away book. Much like most of the free ebooks on here!

The Middle Kingdom Ride
The Middle Kingdom Ride

4.0 out of 5 stars A good watch. Honest and true documentary of traveling around China., 15 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Middle Kingdom Ride (DVD)
*** NOTE : I was provided with reimbursement from the published in exchange for an fair & honest review of this DVD and the accompanying book. ***

What you get - a professional looking two DVD production split into 6 episodes (3 on each DVD) documenting the brothers travels around China.

Along similar lines to by book review, this type of DVD/series is not something I would typically buy/watch. However, upon watching I was impressed. The DVD is well made, and although not your McGregor/other famous traveller highly funded, polished with take after take to get the perfect shot, I would say this is a genuine account of travels and not something that you will see in ITV in-between episodes of Emmerdale & Corrie.

The subject matter - two guys making their way round China is interesting and there is some truly marvellous scenery that many of us are highly unlikely to experience ourselves. The problems encountered along the way, weather, break downs, local officials. All things that would make most people think twice about under taking this journey (oh, not to forget the 18,000 Km journey. Its bad enough making a 18km Journey through some English cities, let alone doing it in another country with some rather terrible roads!) The DVD is an entertaining watch, and although i'm unlikely to watch it again in the near future, its already making its way round friends and family via my 'lending' library.

Given the length of the journey under taken, I would have perhaps liked a longer series.


Tassimo Twinings Breakfast Tea 16 servings (Pack of 5, 80 servings/pods/discs in total)
Tassimo Twinings Breakfast Tea 16 servings (Pack of 5, 80 servings/pods/discs in total)
Price: £15.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Tea., 15 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Theres not a great deal to say about this really, its great quality Twinings English Breakfast tea, in a pod/capsule format specifically for the Tassimo machine.

The tea tastes great, and barcode system ensures a perfect brew time after time. The default does however give a little less tea than I like in my cup, but a press and hold on the button allows me to top my cup up to the desired level and in all honesty, theres plenty of punch left in the leaves after the initial serve as not to really water down the flavour of the brew.

I purchased these on a Lightning deal at christmas, which made the purchase aprox 50% off which was good, however I am prepared and do purchase a full price. The particular product/deal purchased gave 5 boxes of 16 discs which has lasted me several months (I do typically only consume one of these a day) and the products have a decent shelf life.


The Middle Kingdom Ride: Two Brothers, Two Motorcycles, One Epic Journey Around China
The Middle Kingdom Ride: Two Brothers, Two Motorcycles, One Epic Journey Around China
by Ryan Pyle
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A good factual, entertaining read., 15 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
*** Note: I was reimbursed for my purchase in return for my own, personal, honest review of this title. ***

First of all, I will say that I am not usually a reader of these kind of books! However, I started reading the title as soon as I received it and didn't put it down. What I usually find a bit hard in books it the size of the font. This book is printed in a decent size, easy to read font, and the two brothers dialogue is highlighted by background colouring. One brother is writing as a memory of the ride, whilst the other in more diary entry.

The book is a honest story of the journey around China on motor bike, detailing the obstacles that the two brothers had to over come (mainly weather!), however the book doesn't really show of the beautiful scenery & I would recommend the DVD as accompaniment to this book.

The whole book is well written, and although it might feel as its getting repetitive with regards to the problems encountered, you can not fault the guys as this is an accurate account of the issues that westerners would encounter in rural China. I look forward to reading their next adventure in India.

This whisky will certainly not be to every ones liking. If your lean for peaty strong flavours found in island and highland whiskys then this is not going to be for you. However if you like bottlings from the east coast from the likes of Cragganmore, Clyndish and inland from Royal Loch Nagar then this will be to your liking. And thats why I like it and have given it four stars.

If you are new to scotch then persoanlly i dont think that you could go wrong starting with this - when i first tried one many years ago i found the strong peaty flavour unbearable and it put me off for many years. This whisky is as i say light, and the vanilla notes and caramel flavour make this an easy drinker. Enjoy it near or add a little water or ice to your tasting. Dont be put off by the people that snub you for adding these. Its your drink and you can drink it how you want!

Although not tried, this would make a great cocktail such as an Original or a Scotch Mule (add ginger beer).

1.0 out of 5 stars Fake. Not genuine Apple product., 29 Oct. 2014
Not at all genuine. Piece of cheap rubbish that will fail after a short period of usage. Keep clear of any product that claims to be 100% Genuine. Why would you put this on a product description other than to deceive people in to thinking they are buying pukka goods.
