Clover Desk Needle Threader - Green by Clover
1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money, 26 Jun 2014
This needle threader was a complete disappointment. It simply does not work. I purchased this product as a result of the positive reviews here, but it turned out to be a complete waste of money, so the very positive comments here are quite surprising. However, for the same needle threader in a different colour (pink), there are very negative reviews which address exactly the same problems I experienced.
I will definitely not be purchasing anything from this company again, as I am sure they must be aware that this product is useless, and yet they are quite content to keep selling it. This is disreputable practice.
The Visitor: (Jack Reacher 4) by Lee Child
3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 4 Jun 2013
I love the Jack Reacher character, and really enjoy the series, but, Oh Dear, it was just woefully obvious who was carrying out the murders in this novel. This really spoiled it for me. Why make it so obvious from about half way through the book? Where's the suspense? The worst Reacher read.
The Hummingbird Bakery Cupcakes & Muffins by Tarek Malouf
0 of 1 people found the following review helpful
This is probably the worst recipe book I have ever used in more than 40 years' baking. I have baked the pineapple and coconut cupcakes and the ginger cupcakes. Vile!!! Heavy and dense, not the light texture you expect from a cupcake. The quantities given for the icing are absurd. 400 grams of icing sugar to ice 12 cupcakes? Ridiculous.
I can only assume that the rave reviews are by people who have looked at the pretty pictures and been seduced, or who have never baked or eaten a good cupcake. But don't let me put you off. By all means buy this book if your standards are low.
