11.22.63
11.22.63
by Stephen King
Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.18

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to put this down., 9 May 2014
This review is from: 11.22.63 (Paperback)
This is one of the best books that I've read in a long time. The standard of Stephen King's writing is always very good, but the intermingling of time travelling sci-fi with a very well researched story on Kennedy's assassination is an absolute winner.

It feels like an accurate depiction of the 1960s and clearly the writer has taken a lot of care and put a lot of work into achieving as historically accurate a story as he could within the bounds of also making it entertaining.

Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Would never buy OCZ again - service is truly appaling, 26 Feb 2014
Worked like a dream for a year, very fast, easy to set up. Was very pleased with this product until it went wrong. Suddenly died. I then discovered that OCZ have no UK support number - you have to make an international call the Netherlands. Put in a support ticket instead, took OCZ a week to reply to the ticket and then 3 weeks to supply a replacement. Replacement was a refurbished unit that went wrong within a week. Left a ticket with OCZ nearly a week ago and awaiting a response. Hours of time wasted - buy from another manufacturer who have decent after sales.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smells a bit but does seem to work, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Biting insects like me a lot and my skin reacts badly when I'm bitten. I play quite a lot of tennis in a club surrounded by fields and in the evening the gnats are out in force. Spraying this on makes me smell a bit odd, but it does seem to keep the insects away.

This review is from: Toward Yesterday (Kindle Edition)
Excellent, well written, full of suspense. Have been reading the Extinction Point series by the same author. If anything this was better.

1.0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly well, but not Hoselock branded, 18 July 2013

This review is from: Hozelock Hose End Connector
The connector works perfectly well, but I was expecting a Hoselock branded connector, which this was not. Shouldn't be advertising these connectors as Hoselock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Iron and Great Service from Philips, 28 May 2013
Bought the predecessor to this iron from Amazon. After 1 year and 10 months the iron stopped heating up. Just on the point of buying another one, when I checked my previous purchases at Amazon and noticed that this iron has a 2 year guarantee from Philips. Amazon gave me the number to call and the nice people at Philips replaced the iron within a few days, no quibble.

Hugely impressed with Philips service, its the sort of experience that makes you look at buying Philips every time. And its a very good iron as well!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The one I was supplied with didn't work, but the seller very quickly refunded charges, so no problems there, but I'm not very impressed with this device. User interface was confusing and no countdown or much in the way of confirmation, so once you've pressed one of the buttons its not totally clear that the countdown has started.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, well made, works a treat, 3 April 2013
Replaced the cheap (and nasty) one I bought off eBay with this Raleigh propstand. The old one kept catching my foot and coming lose from the frame. No such problems with this one, its sturdy, well made and keeps out of the way. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars More a work of art than just a smart phone, 19 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No doubt about it, this phone is a thing of beauty. The hardware exudes quality and the combination with the windows operating system makes the whole package a real work of art. Its taken a little while to find my way around Windows, but now I have Android looks crude and clunky by comparison. At its current pricing this phone is a real bargain, being priced as a budget smart phone but with the build quality and speed of a top end phone. Buy one now before they run out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overgrip, 8 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have tried a few, this is the best, nice to hold and nicely tacky. I'd rate this above the Wilson overgrips.
