1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing product, 28 Sep 2010
This product would have been ideal, but when it arrived as a gift for mother, it was found to have a defect. The lid would not close. Upon asking the retailer if they had another, they discovered that all of the lids they tried in boxes they had suffered from the same problem. The retailer was very good and collected the faulty product immediately. It is a pity, as the item would have been ideal. I would like to purchase another, so long as all the parts work!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 17 April 2006
How disappointing this book was! I had been persuaded by the fact that this book had won the Richard and Judy award as best book and there were numerous good reviews on covers of the book itself. Not only was it poorly written, difficult to "get into" and told a story that was less than compulsive reading, but the characters were two-dimensional. Short bits in the book, in the middle and near the end were worth the struggle to read it, but on the whole a waste of money and my time. This makes me worry about reviewers - why this rush to praise a book like this, which has no lasting worth and is not even lifted by a good literary style??
