The Stepmother: A gripping psychological thriller with a killer twist

3.0 out of 5 stars Somehow unsatisfying, 15 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed Seeber's previous books but wasn't as keen on this one. It started off a tad slow, became interesting then tailed off into incredulity. The characters were all deeply unlikeable and/or unsympathetic and I felt it was trying to be too clever with the references to previous events or statements that were never fully explained. Just felt disjointed and unsatisfying to finish.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrendously overpriced for what it is, 9 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a birthday gift for someone who loves books and purple! Despite being advertised as prime it took a week to arrive and was two days later than the date I was actually advised it would be delivered. Given all the five star reviews I was really looking forward to seeing it, I expected it to be a work of art and very beautifully made - after all, they cost anywhere from £45-£67 - but it was just so disappointing. It looked just "okay" - the colour was dull, it was too flimsy and the detail was not perfect. It was totally solid and did not have any cut-outs to highlight feathering as it appears from the picture. The picture is very clever indeed as it looks nowhere as good in actuality.

I was absolutely gobsmacked that it cost so much - it does NOT warrant the cost. If I had paid approximately £10 I would've been satisfied with it and kept it but given the cost I could not justify it as the only (late!) birthday present so have sent it back. I take the reviews and ratings very seriously when choosing items on Amazon and are usually agree with the majority but this time I am baffled by the five star reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful stuff!, 5 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've got huge pores on my nose that I am a bit self-conscious about. Have only used this 3 times and already their size has reduced - they appear lighter and shallower and are therefore far less noticeable. The bottle has a clever pump dispenser on it so that you only use the right amount every time (no wastage) and the lovely sparkly black stuff leaves your skin surprisingly soft! I have also noticed a reduction in the redness on my cheeks. You only need to use it 2 to 3 times a week and so the bottle should last a while and I would definitely recommend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't remove ANY hairs so really what's the point of them?!, 21 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Please don't waste your money on these. They just don't work - they don't remove any hairs - not even a few here and there like the superdrug ones, for example. Have been using wax shapers for my brows for a while and have given these 3 goes with hairs at different coarseness and lemgths and even after fully prepping the skin they did precisely nothing. Won't buy again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware - comes from US, subject to large custom charges, 30 Dec. 2015
Unfortunately it was not made clear in the product details that this does actually come from the US and is therefore subject to custom charges. On top of the £2 shipping charge was an £8 handling charge and £4 custom charge that we had to pay Royal Mail before they would release it. Suddenly not such a good deal. From a product perspective the scissors are beautifully sharp but hardly worth £50. This is why it is rated as an overall package of 2 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too long for a standard board, 26 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are too long for the width of a standard ironing board and so I had to stretch them diagonally/criss-cross. As a result they do not do a particularly good job of holding the cover taut/in place. The clasps seem to be holding okay so far (after a couple of attempts to get them firmly attached) but do feel a bit flimsy so not convinced they will last. All in all not a good buy.

Lost a shoulder stone during transit. Colour not quite as beautiful as picture. Very blingy for the price though.

5.0 out of 5 stars If I could marry this duvet, I would!, 13 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Okay, there is a bit of hyperbole in my title but seriously this is a wonderful, wonderful duvet. It is soft and silky smooth with fancy contrast edging and box stitching to keep the stuffing in place. It doesn't smell strange like a lot of new duvets and whilst it is a slightly heavy duvet (it is a winter weight one), it is therefore warm and toasty and cosy and lovely and comfortable. It's bliss to sleep under and I really recommend it. Quick delivery in a proper zip bag too. I do....zzzzzzzzzzz

Cute 3D Lovely Cat hard Back Case/Cover/Skin for iPhone 5 5G (RED)

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT as described, 23 Dec. 2012
This item is very large, it overhangs the iPhone by a couple of centimetres all round so it is very bulky. But what is really disappointing with this item is it is not a hard case at all; it is a soft and rubbery case and it just feels really cheap and nasty. It has no rigidity and I really can't recommend it at all. I have only given it two stars because it is actually Hello Kitty on the case!
