4.0 out of 5 stars A great funny read. Very entertaining., 29 Aug 2014

A good read and as quirky as The Hundred Year Old Man, with a superbly entertaining way of writing and presenting a story. Not quite as good as The Hundred Year Old Man (which is truly brilliant), but a worthy read nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb book, buy this if you have the camera., 29 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very useful, easy to read, comprehensive guide to the camera. Your camera does much more than you might imagine and is capable of taking astounding pictures. However, doing this, in all sort of conditions and circumstances will require you to understand how it works and how to control it. If you can work out how to easily set the camera to shoot pictures 3 stops down and then zoom into a shot picture to examine the sharpness of the picture, then you might not need this book. Otherwise, definitely buy the book. Your camera is very powerful, learn how to use its excellent controls.
Also if you buy it on Kindle, and use Kindle on all your smart devices, then you will always have it available to hand as a useful reference book.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and compact, folding pair of glasses, ideal for keeping in your pocket for those occasional emergencies., 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These glasses are of good optical quality and are also as well-built as you could ask for, for the money. They are small enough to always have in your pocket and fold out to a nice practical and usable size. Buyers should understand that these are most appropriately used as 'emergency' glasses for when you need to read menus, price tags etc. and are not really made to a high enough quality to be continually used. As mentioned, before, they are however, good value for money.
I should point out that shipment took a long time - just over 2 weeks and there was no indication of this before order placement. I should, however, mention that I did not pay for postage so I guess I got what I paid for. Nonetheless, they did eventually arrive, securely packed and in perfect condition.
Overall I am happy with the product and would be happy to buy it again.


I Love Curry
I Love Curry
by Anjum Anand
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb curry recipe book which will find you buying spices and making your own curries from scratch - deliciously successful, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Love Curry (Hardcover)
Like many people, we have a lot of cookery books and many of these are curry books. However, this is the one we use most. The recipes will require you to buy a group of about 10 different spices - readily available and reasonably priced. Once you have bought them, you will find that they last you a good long time and that the replacement cost, as you use them is very modest.
The recipes in may seem quite complicated but they are not. Most divide into 3 parts - get a set of mixed spices together, make a paste of onions, garlic, ginger, tomatoes and plain yoghurt, then add them in order to meat or vegetables etc. on the cooker. If we are having friends round and we don't want to cook the curry ahead of time, then we sometimes prepare these elements ahead of time and just put them together at the time.
The results and tastes that you will get from this book are superb, truly superb. Once you have used the recipes contained here, you will find that the pre-bought pastes from the supermarket are really poor quality and are also very expensive in comparison. You may also subsequently find that Indian/Bangladeshi restaurant meals are sadly lacking too.
Definitely something for everyone and not too involved. A lovely chicken curry or lamb dopiazza typically takes us about 20 minutes to prepare and a further 20 - 30 minutes in the pan. The resulting curry is excellent.
As always, you will need to try the level of chilly-hotness for yourself and settle down on what you enjoy best - we have made loads of notes in the recipes so that we know how much chilly to use as compared to what is suggested.
We have also given this book to countless friends and they also have sung its praises - very highly recommended.


iRig Mic Cast Ultra Compact Microphone for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad
iRig Mic Cast Ultra Compact Microphone for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad
Price: £24.00

2.0 out of 5 stars An okay microphone for the money but negligible benefit over the inbuilt mic on an iPhone 5s, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a cheap microphone which is reflected in the price, the build quality and the performance. It is no better than the inbuilt microphone on an iPhone 5s. I would suggest that potential buyers think carefully about whether they need such a facility or indeed if they would be better spending more on a higher quality product.
