4.0 out of 5 stars Works well for Galaxy S6, not for Kindle, 13 May 2017

Definitely improved charging time for my Galaxy S6. For some reason won't charge my Kindle nor my Anker power pack (whereas the original Samsung charger would),

2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle screen unresponsive, 29 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So I have had this about 2.5 years and it has been good. The case has done a good job of protecting the screen. But now the screen has become unresponsive and multiple reboots have not had any effect.

I am not sure if it is right that you need to spend a couple of hundred pounds (kindle plus cover) after 2 and a half years to replace a product. I have an opinion based on my experiences of earlier Kindles that these are essentially quite fragile pieces of technology. If I buy another it will be my 5th in 4 years. In plain english, they go wrong too easily and they can't be fixed. For the money they should be more robust.

So happy to have Mr Brookmyre back and as sharp as ever. Funny, sharp and twisty.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like well written contemporary fiction, 17 Feb. 2015

If you like well written contemporary fiction, with more than a dash of fantasy thrown in, and a thread that snakes the length of the novel, buy this. Should be at least double the price (and I have read all this guys books).


Close to the Bone (Logan McRae, Book 8)
Close to the Bone (Logan McRae, Book 8)
Price: £6.49

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential part of the Scottish crime trilogy, 13 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You have Rankin and Rebus for Edinburgh, you have Brookmyre and Parlabane, Jasmine etc for Edinburgh and other parts of Scotand......but you must have Macbride and Logan McRae for Aberdeen! There are definite regional flavours and nuances, none more so that Macbride writing about the Granite City

I was a bit late reading Close to the Bone, and the story definitely benefits from knowing where we last left Logan. He is still put-upon, over-burdened by work and taking regular beastings from anybody above him in the hierarchy - particularly of course Steel. He is still in counselling (not surprisingly). But he can still crack a case and takes no prisoners.

Plenty of unfinished business for Logan which I hope will mean a return in the not too distant future.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, 9 Nov. 2013

Getting older seems to agree with Rebus. Maybe he can`t do all the things he used to be able to, but his intellect and humour are intact. A sharp plot, crackling dialogue, and even a few laughs. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Chest Strap Required, 3 Nov. 2013
The good points

1. Yes, no chest strap required. Thats pretty good, one less smelly thing to carry around and wash after the gym.
2. Its simple to set up - just the 12 hour time, and your preferred Heart Rate zone (the lower and upper limit)
3. The HR monitor for me works pretty well. Just occasionally the HR reduces without reason to 80 or 90, but very soon comes back. The impact is negligible over a decent period, say 40 or 60 minutes.
4. Simple colour indicator on the watch shows if you are in the HR zone set (green), under it (blue) or over it (red). Quite nice becase you can see it with just a glance, no need to check the watch face.
5. Large simple monitor, easy to read in normal light
6. Rechargeable via USB charger supplied, so no batteries required

The less good points

1. The data output is very limited - just time spent overall, time in the zone and average HR. And that data is kept only for the last workout. No history. Compared to the cheaper Suunto M2 that isn`t great.
2. I couldnt turn off the alarm that beeps if you are outside the zone. Thats a bit irritating if you are deliberately having an easy day. I suppose I could reset the "zone" for that day only, but thats a bit of a faff to keep doing that
3. No backlight so if you run in the dark, thats going to be a problem.

Overall I think an interesting development in the world of heart rate monitors. Can`t help feeling a bit more functionality would really make it a class leader

3.0 out of 5 stars Did I get the whole book?, 29 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Negative Buoyancy (Kindle Edition)
I liked this book, a bit chick-lit light but pretty good holiday reading. But having spent the time reading it, the ending was frustrating - as in, it didnt have a proper ending. Literally left the characters in mid drama. So much so that I wondered if I had actually got the whole book or not.
