Netgear R6100 AC1200 Dual Band Wi-Fi Router by NetGear
4.0 out of 5 stars Overall Very Good, 16 July 2014

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes light work..., 16 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Case: top quality blow-moulded, hard plastic case. Compares very favourably to brands like Dewalt and Makita.

Durability: 9/10

Value for money: 10/10

Safety: 5/10

Joiners and DIY enthusiasts alike will find this to be an extremely cost-effective and time-saving tool.

I really enjoyed this book and maybe a little bit more than it deserved because it's not what I expected at all and quite different from the usual fantasy & sci-fi fare I tend towards.

There are lots of interesting elements to the plot and an array of the kind of stock characters you would expect from the genre, but the style of writing I think elevates them above the average.

The author's experience in the genre is evident- she has constructed a good core story, which will hopefully be fleshed out further in future instalments.
