Cheap - in both senses. Very plasticky. But in terms of getting corks out of bottles, it gets corks out of bottles. Can't see it lasting long.

3.0 out of 5 stars but really not very comfortable in the ear, 11 July 2017

They sound OK, but really not very comfortable in the ear. An old-fashioned kind of bud - the world had moved on. But sturdy and well-made.

4.0 out of 5 stars These look better than they feel, 20 Jun. 2017

These look better than they feel. They don't feel terrible or anything, thought the lenses are a little flimsy. But I'm perfectly happy, over-all.

Fine - does the job and looks the part. Just make sure you don't do what I did - ordering Youths by mistake. I had to sew in some extra elastic ...


Collected Poems, 1951-97
Collected Poems, 1951-97
by Charles Causley
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars I think he may well be one of those poets better encountered by surprise in an anthology, 20 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm fond of Causley, but I'm starting to think that he's a little over-praised. Bought this so I could get an idea of his whole output, chronologically. There are some lovely poems, along with a few clunkers. I think he may well be one of those poets better encountered by surprise in an anthology. The whole is less than the sum of the parts.

3.0 out of 5 stars I found the text quite interesting and fairly useful, though it seems to oscillate somewhat, 19 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found the text quite interesting and fairly useful, though it seems to oscillate somewhat, Three Bears style, between too hard and too soft. Some things are raced over too quickly, others overstay their welcome. But it's witty and gracefully written, and has plenty of good verse. However, here comes the real issue, on the Kindle - I couldn't get the verse to arrange itself properly. Line spacings and line lengths were both largely random. This spoiled the pleasure of what would others have been a sold 4-stars.
