Samsung C3050 Stratus Sim Free Mobile Phone - Blac&hellip by Samsung
9 of 9 people found the following review helpful
I have bought two of these phones now for my Mother. The first one was purchased a while ago (and was a previous model) has had many little problems which have been ignored (such as loud buzzing from the speaker/mic, extremly poor signal reception etc).

Because she liked the phone I bought her the updated model and assumed that it would be fat superior. it is not. After just one week the phone was switching itself off randomly at least twice a day and the phone book refuses to open at all.

Overall a very poor handset.

I have convinced my Mother to switch makes/models now, away from the Samsung-Slider types.
Memories of Ice (The Malazan Book of the Fallen) by Steven Erikson

A truely fantastic novel, perhaps it may seem daunting to many at nearly 1000 pages, but they seem to gly past all too quickly.
There are several factions (Onearm's host, Tist Andii, Caladran Brood) who have a seemingly solid aliance, but it is stife with problems. One holds a sword that must be destroyed, one a hammer that must never be used, and the malazians are stuck in the middle, destined to be caught in the middle.
There are a few new player's, the Master of the Deck, the crippled God, and some old Gods who are not what they once were. All are brought forth very vividly.
This is perhaps the one book in this genre that portals war to its utmost tragedy.
5 Stars.
Child Of Thunder (Last of the Renshai) by Mickey Zucher Reichert
Child Of Thunder (Last of the Renshai) by Mickey Zucher Reichert
A really good book, with everything anyone could possibly want.
The only reason that i didnt give it 5 stars was that the "twists in the tail" were spotted straight away, and were rather easy to see through.
The characters are well thought out, and very well detailed, although the main character Colbey seemed a bit too good at times. The book is written at a much faster tempo than in the previous book ("the western wizard").
Highly recomended.
