1.0 out of 5 stars One Star, 22 Aug. 2017

A slow, plodding story, that revolves around an uninteresting set of characters.

Couldn't finish it due to sheer boredom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best thing on TV, 2 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Most TV shows these days are terrible.

This is amazing.

From the beautifully scripted narratives, to the cinematography and acting. High Maintenance is the best new show I've seen in the last five years. It's intelligent and witty, something that will entertain on multiple levels.

Plus if you saw the web series, you'll get a lot more of the 'in' jokes.

If you appreciate real art, buy this.

Can't wait for series 2.

2.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, 5 Jun. 2015
This review is from: atmos boss (Personal Care)
It is a budget vaporiser. Draw is iffy and only one preset temperature setting. Easy to use, okay battery life. Might be worth investing in something better for the money though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Given Day (Paperback)
I'm a Lehane fan but this was a deep disappointment. Slow, no real character goals, jumping ineffectively between story lines and about 400 pages too long.
It seemed that he did his research but I had to force myself to keep reading, I wanted to stop on about 6 occasions. Check out his other books.
