Bic Velleda Liquid Ink Dry Wipe Marker - Assorted (Pack of 4)
Bic Velleda Liquid Ink Dry Wipe Marker - Assorted (Pack of 4)
Price: £6.11

5.0 out of 5 stars Vibrant and colourful, 25 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very good whiteboard markers that stand out exceptionally well. It's true that nib size they aren't the biggest, maybe the size of a felt tip pen. But because of the vibrancy of the colours they really stand out against a white background.
Not sure whether it's a novelty factor or not but I liked the transparent side which allows you to monitor the ink level. There's just something aesthetically pleasing about it. They're a nice thickness to hold and apply smoothly to the surface. They also wipe off without any problem and the colours are different and very pleasing to the eye.

2.0 out of 5 stars Headache inducing, 25 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Honour (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I didn't much like this. I didn't like the authors style of detailing events in such a haphazard disorganised fashion. I didn't find the characters very engaging and the plot was stifled by randomn events and meaningless, long winded dialogue.
As the order of things jumped around so much it was very difficult to go back to after leaving it for a few days. I had forgotten who people were in relation to others, what events had already occurred as there was so much referencing to things that had happened before you read what had happened and so on and so forth.

Kensington KeyFolio Thin X2 Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard with Hard Case and Auto Wake for iPad Air 2 - Black
Price: £61.85

4.0 out of 5 stars Well thought out and designed, 23 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This bluetooth keyboard is a really beneficial accessory to go with the iPad Air 2. It's moderately lightweight, very sleek looking when both opened and closed and the raised keyboard is easy to use with good sized keys.
I won't go over all the specs as already listed but the auto sleep function works very well with the keyboard only coming into play once it is correctly assembled with the device. It's worth a mention the actual packing the keyboard comes in; it's a nice hard cardboard box which opens via a magnetised clip on the side. Excellent and acts as a really good storage box or for transporting of the keyboard if for any reason you did not want to permanently use this as your protective case.
It's easy to charge and align with your device, between 1 and 2 hours and has, it claims, 960 hours of working time. My only real niggle is that once positioned the angle of the keyboard is fixed. You can't adjust the angle at all. The angle is well positioned but depending on where you're seated etc I would have liked the option to be able to tinker with the angle.


Bic Kids Supersoft Colouring Pencils - Pack of 8, Plus Sharpener
Bic Kids Supersoft Colouring Pencils - Pack of 8, Plus Sharpener
Offered by ZINKER
Price: £6.89

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice range of colours, 22 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These very long and very thick pencils have a nice 'feel' to them. I've had cause to purchase this exact set before and the application of the colours is very smooth. There are eight different colours in all; the only real colour that I miss is black. That asides there are a nice range of warm and cold colours. Also included is a bog standard albeit large entranced pencil sharpener which is a useful addition as these pencils are so chunky thus a normal sized pencil sharpener wouldn't fit.
Not bad value at all for what you get.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid toaster, 22 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A good two slice toaster. It's quite blocky in appearance but this is to allow for it being quite deep, dimension wise and the slots a little bit longer. I liked that it has seven different toasting levels though and a defrost function which seems to be a common addition now with modern toasters.
Appearance wise it's fine. I have to say it doesn't have that expensive looking sheen to it like my old Morphy Richards one but it toasts better and more evenly. In fact my old bananna yellow Hinari toaster proved a better buy than Morphy Richards so I'll go for substance over style any day with toasters. The only real shame I suppose is it only toasting two items at a time. This is the only factor which will limit its use for me; by necessity I'd use the oven grill as the first toasting port of call. For what it is though it works well, toasts nicely and has good dimensions to it though with small electricals the proof will be in the pudding as far as longevity is concerned. It has a two year online registered warranty so we'll see how it goes.


Seal Island
Seal Island
by Julia Green
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Tale from a bygone age, 17 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Seal Island (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A gentle well written book, twee and old fashioned yes but appealing to younger children with relatively straight forward themes and easy to take to characters.
It's a good book for practising reading and appreciating a story arc for, I'd say 6 or 7 up until about 10 years of age. It has some nice hand drawn images as well which compliment sections of the descriptive content. I did read a lot of it and whilst i'd say it's not a book that would captivate most people outside of the aforementioned age group it can be appreciated as a nice younger childrens book that provides some pleasant escapism.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, 15 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nice enough, just nothing particularly special. It smells ok and lathers up ok but I just wouldn't buy it in replacement of the shower gel (Source) I already buy which comes in a variety of different and more appealing fruity mixtures and works out considerably cheaper than this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Should be buried in the bayou, 12 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Jessabelle [DVD] (DVD)
A dull and largely uneventful take on voodoo in the deep south of Louisiana. What should have been a potentially rich source of spookiness was instead devoid of atmosphere with most of the 'action' taking place within the confines of a house which could have been set in Huddersfield so lacking was the use of what should have been a great location.
The story was tame. Large segments of the film featured a seies of anti-climatic set pieces featuring the obligatory hazy glimpses of 'another' through lace bed curtains or broken mirrors interspersed with our Jess watching home videos recorded by her mother in the 1980's showing ma reading tarot cards to her yet to be born child, predicting her future. Anyway, regardless of the events people were pretty much unpeturbed after a good nights sleep.
There's no gore, sex, violence or bad language to any serious degree to at least give the allusion that this is aimed at a horror audience. Neither is it scary, creepy, original or even fun. The interest level peaks at two stars in a five minute explanatory section near the end otherwise I don't think it's worth a punt, nor is it worth catching on a late night satellite channel. Performances were passable given the script and the dvd extras? Frankly life is too short.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre and inappropriate for UK nursing, 9 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very strange. It's an eye opener if nothing else as the marked difference between the UK and US nursing models. The reviewer who made the comparison between this and the DSM guide made some pertinent points although I have to say I like the DSM (I've got DSM IV) whereby all manner of behaviours, thoughts and feelings are medicalised, given labels and a pharmological course of treatment.
I hated this book in parts but also some parts were bang on in it's diagnosis. I disagree with the reviewer who questionned the suicide risk section in terms of access to guns being a factor. I know there are, one at least, UK based risk assessments (can't of the top of my head remember which one) which address this very point. Many jobs and leisure pursuits provide access to firearms and that access does increase the likelihood of a fatality, over other methods, in those who choose to end their life in this way.
I thought the suicide risk section was very good and likewise there are other conditions and risk factors which are assessed/diagnosed competently but I can't recommend. There is no connection or correlation to NICE guidelines so I wouldn't even trust this to quote it in an academic essay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding beginners guide to the world of microbes, 8 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A really fabulous engrossing book. Not knowing an awful lot about this field is no obstacle to gaining an understanding of microbes. Concepts are explained so well in this guide. I loved the sections on viruses and human health and disease but it was all fascinating (300 pages in) I've yet to read the last couple of chapters as there is quite a lot of considering process' involved and it's often beneficial to go back to an earlier chapter once you have read something later on which links in.
The book is well constructed; I probably find the diagrams more difficult to conceptualise than the text but there are both in abundance. A really great book from start to finish and I'm looking forward to the remaining sections on diseases caused by microbes; ten great uses for microbes (food, brewing beer, killing pests, treating sewage etc) and so on. Brilliant beginners/intermediatary guide.
