1.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm..., 8 Jun 2013
This product looked to be quite groovy on the page, but when it arrived, it was just a smaller, cheaper version of the hookah pipes you can get from Amazon, at other sites. In the photograph the item has a rigid pipe-stem affair, and a smaller, more convenient bowl... When it arrived it had a cheap, flexible hose (which was kinked, and unusable), and a ceramic, glazed, candle-stick sized bowl. Phooey! It was cheap, though - I couldn't be bothered to return it, so I just binned it. Slightly hacked me off, to be honest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Free, 5 July 2012
I sometimes suffer from terrible insomnia, so I download the odd free book, to read on my Kindle. I haven't finished it yet, so it must be doing the job... I liked the title; but it's a bit clumsy in terms of language, and the plot is scrappy. But still possible to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really?, 5 July 2012
What, you need a review of 'The Divine Comedy', before you read it? Stop being silly. Just read it. It's one of the classic works. I suppose other translations might be better...
