If you are planning to use the pans to deflect bullets you may be better of going for a more expensive brand. But for normal use, these pans may be light but they are sturdy enough and they do the job. For under £20 for three pans you can't really go wrong unless you intend them to become family heirlooms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does The Job Perfectly, 28 July 2016
This review is from: Tea Tool (Kitchen & Home)
"Utensil for making teat." LOL, pity someone's nipples if that's why they buy it!

Edited since I now own the device:

I was disappointed by a traditional teabag squeezer. Fiddling around trying to get the hot bag between the jaws was no better than using a spoon. This is different. You put the dry teabag into the device and never have to touch it again. Clever and functional and worth the extra few pounds for it. Haven't tried it on teats yet though :-D

Quite an original and innoative story. It does leave loose threads for book two, which is unfortunately a it overpriced for an author looking to establish himself.

at under two quid inc postage these are a great purchase. Rigid plastic that doesn't feel at all flimsy and holds a 3.5 snugly.

The Quest for Excalibur (The Relic Hunters Book 6)
Price: £2.12

3.0 out of 5 stars Proof Readers Queue Here, 4 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As noted, this badly needs a proof reader who passed fourth grade literacy. No doubt the spell checker was used but too many homophones (look it up ;) ). It dropped at least one or two stars for that.

Aside from that the book is a welcome return to sanity in the Relic Hunter series. No dastardly Israeli archaeologist (hopefully we have seen the last of Gabriel who is about 3 or 4 books past his sell-by date) and a real basis for a search for Excalibur. Very much worth reading if you can gloss over the errors.

Don't expect this to have much to do with Nostradamus or archaeology. It's just a convenient handle to put on a book about mysticism and spiritual journeys.

Only read it to progress the series. Not easy, not exciting, not very entertsining

Mr Jones seems to be growing with each story. What started out as a rather simplistic car-chase book (number one in series) has evolved into something more. In this book particularly we see his ability to manage several threads, switching between them but bringing them all together at the end with a deft assurance.

As long as he doesn't do anything silly like killing for emotional effect and to hide lack of plot, I will certainly be anticipating new releases with the sort of enthusiasm I look at authors such as Chris Kuzneski, an author who could have inspired Rob Jones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better, 19 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unlike the first book, this is more than a series of non-stop car chases. It isn't short of action but it seems rather more thought has gone into it and that isn't a bad thing.

It does seem that proof readers are thin on the ground in self-publishing circles. The typos are here too but I've seen far worse and they don't detract too much.

Generally it's the sort of book you may find hard to put down and as before, it segues into the start of the next book. Could be annoying but as all three of the trilogy are available, it need not be. Good read but not high literature. Jane Austen and Charles Dickens are safe but this does have more action than either of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Proof No More, 17 Jun. 2016
Typos, typos everywhere and not a proofreader in sight! If that is what you are payig your editor for, find a new one who went beyond 3rd grade English. The errors average at least one a page and have all the hallmarks of someone who just figured a spell checker would be enough.

It isn't. Look up the definition of homonym. This book is full of them. Through instead of threw. Flat souled shoes instead of flat soled. Just two examples.

OK thats the down side. Anyone buying an audio version should be fine. Now if you can get past those distractions, what you find is a very readable eco-terrorist sort of book. I'm not going to spoil the plot but the first few chapters have a bit of science in them and after that the book is as good as any I have read in that half-world between man's attempts to pervert nature and nature sticking it back at the human race.

The hero is on form, along with his trusty sidekicks. Aliana is absent but we are reassured they still have a strong relationship, which is a pleasant change from the trend amongst authors to pad out their stories with emotional angst.

So the final analysis? Buy this but be prepared to skate over the mistakes. It's usually obvious what he intended it to mean.
