Hull Zero Three
Hull Zero Three
by Greg Bear
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Cold, dark and bewildering - great science fiction!, 14 July 2015
This review is from: Hull Zero Three (Paperback)
Cold, dark and bewildering - great science fiction! It is different from other Greg Bear books and should be read as a stand-alone novel. It will keep you on the edge of your seat as the story twists and turns through various habitats, slowly revealing some (not all) of the secrets behind it.


Remington R91 Dual Track Rotary Shaver
Remington R91 Dual Track Rotary Shaver

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good - for a starter razor, 18 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Surprisingly good - for a starter razor. This is a great for first timers to test out an electric (rotary) razor. Now looking for a more advanced razor.

Battery is good and is quick to charge - lasts about 10 shaves.

Does not come with any kind of carry case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply put - why didn't I get this earlier?, 18 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In most fireplaces most of the heat is lost up the chimney when the fire is on; and when it is not your central heating vents up the chimney. A definite requirement for a home with a chimney.

Draft reduction: 95% (you need to leave a small amount to avoid damp)

Noise reduction: 85-90%

3.0 out of 5 stars A good grill, but a bit bulky and watch those clips!, 2 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good grill, but a bit bulky and watch those clips! It is great for cheese toasties and quickly grills chicken - fantastic for the kids. However, be aware it is a bit bulky and the clips on the side don't seem to be the strongest. I have returned one already as the clip snapped! I am trying out the second grill to see if that was a one-off issue or a design fault.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre sci fi, 21 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Final Days (Paperback)
This book seems throughout to be written more as a screen play for a Hollywood disaster movie rather than a key work of science fiction. The writing is designed for a quick page turner and the "science" bits are quickly skimmed over. When a key character gets into a difficult spot he always "somehow" gets out of it. The regular use of "somehow" to skip to the next point in the plot I found particularly irritating. However, if you want an action page turner and you are not too bothered with the science fiction part it is fine. However, Peter F Hamilton, Neil Asher, Hannu Rajaniemi among others are all putting out new novels and I would recommend these ahead of Final Days.


The Quantum Thief
The Quantum Thief
by Hannu Rajaniemi
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard sci fi at its best, 8 Jan. 2012
This review is from: The Quantum Thief (Paperback)
This is fantastic hard sci fi with some absolutely brilliant ideas. I do admit it is not the easiest read; however, it sets a good deal of intrigue and the more gets revealed as you go along. To set clear expectations, here are some things it is not: (1) It is not filled with the effusive sci fi descriptions and planetary landscapes of Peter F Hamilton (2) It is not a fast paced sci fi action book of Morgan or Asher. There are parts that do leave you puzzled and there is a certain level of terminology that does not get fully explained. However, this is the first of 3 books with "The Fractal Prince" due out shortly. The final chapter in this book gives you a good insight of deeper things to come. Enjoy.

Brilliant Leader: What the Best Leaders Know, Do and Say: What Brilliant Leaders Know, Do and Say
by Simon Cooper
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Well structured and some great ideas, 12 Sept. 2011
The book is well structured, does not waffle and contains some ideas that I immediately put into practise. Unlike some other management books it is an easy read and clearly layed out.
