5.0 out of 5 stars Left me sobbing, 11 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I downloaded this book a while ago along with many others that were offered for free in hopes of conquering my addiction to paper books but no luck. Yesterday I decided to have another go and opened the first 'book' I saw.....

24hrs later and Billie and Tom are forever in my heart and Chained Melodies has joined the list of my all time favourite stories which encompass a spectrum from Helen Van Slyke thru Graham Greene to Solzhenitsyn.

I have several trans friends and have followed their journey thru various stages, I don't know if this made me a more receptive reader or not but I was hooked after the first few pages and will be recommending the book to others. I have no doubt some people will be thrown by the idea of a 'transgender love story' but overcome that, dive in and lose yourself in this well crafted and believable tale which also serves as a primer for folks struggling to understand gender issues.

After this undoubted success I'm going to click on a few more of my e-books, but old-fashioned though it may be, top of wish list is a hard copy of Chained Melodies for my shelf of well thumbed treasured books.

Brilliant product, can't believe how easily, quickly and perfectly it fitted my iPad. I already have the same one on my phone and now I'm buying for the rest of the family.

These were a gift and very well received by a 22yr old woman. They were intended for home use but have now found a new purpose adorning the set of her new play!

I bought these as a gift for my husband after seeing them on a friend. It takes a while to get to grips with the touch but it does work. There is slightly less accuracy than using a naked finger but it's not too bad and a small price to pay for warm hands.

3.0 out of 5 stars It worked... Kind of..., 2 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to grow my eyebrows back after hearing that it worked for a friend. I have used 1-2 times a day for over a month but far from growing my brows seem to be thinner than before! Will continue a while longer but not confident. On the plus side, I also heard that it's good for zits so when I got one I tried applying the oil and after two days no more blemish.

Love these pens, easy to use, long lasting and good strong colours. So far not a single one has clogged up or leaked. Great result.

Rubbish book, a few useable recipes but this is only refined sugar free, not sugar free. If you're going to do it, do it properly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing purchase, 2 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this item some time ago but never got around to reviewing. It looks like enough and it stores spare rolls BUT it's not easy to pull off the required amount of paper as its too free running and, even more annoyingly, no matter how often I tighten the screw at the base it is always loose and wobbly. Left untightened for a week or so it just falls apart. Overall very disappointing. I am replacing mine with a better one.
