5.0 out of 5 stars Now I watch what I want to watch., 18 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fire TV Stick (Electronics)
Cheaper than Apple TV and just as user friendly. Amazon Fire Stick gets channels that I have been unable to get on my Apple TV. Now between Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video I rarely watch broadcast TV. The Apple TV rests in reserve. Amazing value for money.


Shadow Love
Shadow Love
by Inge H. Borg
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.11

5.0 out of 5 stars Poignant brain teaser, 22 April 2015
This review is from: Shadow Love (Paperback)
Let me say that romantic fiction is not my bag; that I read this novella out of curiosity and respect engendered by the quality of previous work of Inge Borg. It has stayed in my mind ever since.
Churchill once said about Russia that it was a ‘riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. This story illustrates the meaning of that phrase. It leaves the reader with unanswered questions that linger in the mind long after the reading is over. What has happened here? Was it a foreshadowing, a haunting, or hormone and alcohol induced madness?
This novella is a poignant tale of a woman with baggage left by treachery, isolated, lonely, yearning for fulfillment. What that leads to is for the reader to decide, for me the jury is still out.

This is a remarkable tale with an impact way beyond that to be expected from its brevity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reduces the nuisance of airport security., 5 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 5.11 TDU 1.5" Belt Black (Apparel)
Does the job. I have always resented the inconvenience of removing my belt, binning it and then refitting it on the other side of security. I understand that it's to maybe save my life but it is a nuisance. So straight through this time with no problems. Sorry Al Quaeda just another little failing, one finger to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent performance and product, 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I originally bought another performance which had poor reproduction. In consequence I then bought this version. This is what I was hoping for with the first purchase. Reproduction is crystal clear and the performance is excellent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor technical production of PM3 download, 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The performance is fine so it is a pity that the reproduction is scratchy and doesn't do justice to the music

5.0 out of 5 stars Continues to be the best viewing this year, 17 Mar. 2014

See my review of seasons 1 & 2. My opinion remains the same. The complexity and impact of the series is hugely entertaining

4.0 out of 5 stars Well researched but suffers by comparison with G.of T., 17 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This series suffers from bad timing. It is well researched, written and acted but suffers as spectacle in comparison with Game of Thrones which unfortunately was released at about the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Many good features, 17 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The oven is easy to use and has good features, in particular the fast cook button which adjusts the timne in 30 sec. increments up to 5 minutes.
Only thing against is that it is noisier than the average but this is a mild criticism as the noise is quite tolerable and easy to tune out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Discs 1 and 2 brilliant side splitting rants, disc 3 so so., 1 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Discs 1 & 2 were hilarious, not a dry seat in the house. Normally I would give five stars and certainly the first two discs were worth that. The third and final disc disappointingly was only mildly amusing and compared to the others chimed like a cracked bell.
Consequently I have reduced my rating to four stars.
