4.0 out of 5 stars The cover is good quality and comfortable to hold, 4 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cover is good quality and comfortable to hold. The automatic wake/sleep function is handy. However, be advised that this nearly doubles the weight of your Kindle so for long reads you probably want to take it out of the case but for travelling it's ideal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short but has Potential, 4 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only 8 pages of actual story. Has potential but 99p for something you can read in five minutes is not exactly great value.

Otherwise it's the classic story of Guy Becomes A Zombie, Guy Meets Girl, Guy Turns Girl Into Zombie, Guy Has Sex With Girl, Girl Gets Her Head Blown Off With A Shotgun. I'd like to encourage the author to take this short and explore it further, because it could be good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Different Yet Familiar, 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Manooghi Hi (MP3 Download)
Manooghi Hi are an unusual band, combining elements of modern rock with traditional Indian music, all wrapped up in a very definite Seattle style. Melodic, powerful, verging on trippy in some areas, the dual vocalists and mixture of English and South Asian language vocals certainly give Manooghi Hi a unique feel. The album starts strongly, with the delightfully whirling Kismet, before moving on to the driving rhythm of Om Baba. Unfortunately, after those two standout tracks the album starts to go downhill slightly, with Kali being the last song that really has anything much to it. The rest are pleasant but forgettable. One to grab for the singles rather than the whole album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to Their Best!, 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Last Patrol (Audio CD)
Last Patrol sees Monster Magnet move away from their more recent power rock vibes and back to their stoner metal roots. Elements of Superjudge, Spine of God, and Dopes to Infinity are clear throughout, though this album has considerably more polish and refinement. Stand out tracks are Mindless Ones and End of Time but, really, none of the songs on Last Patrol will disappoint. Without a doubt one of my favourite MM albums, I rank this right up there with Dopes to Infinity and it's a delightful return to form after the somewhat hit-and-miss Mastermind.


Draper 40886 Tx-Star Key Set (7 Pieces)
Draper 40886 Tx-Star Key Set (7 Pieces)
Offered by Switched on
Price: £3.75

3.0 out of 5 stars An okay tool for occasional use, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a nice, compact size, with 7 different size heads, including a couple of non-standard ones that are hard to find on these multi-sets. Only downside is that the build quality isn't the greatest - the keys move too much around the axle, making them slightly fiddly to use; and the steel itself is too soft for its intended purpose, meaning it doesn't have the greatest durability. I've not used it more than a dozen times and already two of the smallest keys are useless as the heads have been ground smooth from use.


Logitech Performance MX Wireless Mouse(UK version)
Logitech Performance MX Wireless Mouse(UK version)

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Mouse, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a replacement for my last Logitech MX Performance, which was starting to have sensor problems after 2 years of intensive use. While I don't like the buttons quite as much as the previous version - the "Search" button on the top has been replaced by a "scroll mode" button that cannot be programmed for a different use, and the two thumb rest buttons are easily caught by accident - the build quality is nevertheless the usual Logitech excellence, and the mouse is incredibly comfortable to grip and use, even for prolonged periods. It glides smoothly and soundlessly, and offers crisp clicking. My only complaint about it is, as above, that the new button layout is not as good as the old one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and versatile, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these as a replacement for my Merrills which, after 3 years of day-in day-out use, were finally starting to fall apart. I use them principally for work, where they need to good walking shoes for the journey to and from the office, comfortable and light enough to wear throughout the day, and sturdy and practical for when I go out onto building sites. I've had these for three months and so far they've hit the mark on every front, effectively doing the job of three pairs of shoes.

Summary -
Warm on cold days, cool enough on warmer days
Lightweight but still sturdy
Splash proof and breathable
Great support
Exceptionally comfortable

This review is from: Moniack Mead (Wine)
Moniack is one of my favourite meads. It's full of flavour, with a well-rounded taste, and the herbal tones are noticeable without overpowering the honey. Neither too dry nor too sweet, this is a very well balanced mead that goes down smoothly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget Tabasco, This Is The King, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a serious hot sauce that will leave you panting and reaching for a glass of milk, Frank's Red Hot Original is nevertheless an excellent and versatile cayenne pepper sauce. It can be cooked into sauces to add just a little bit of bite (though the slight sour edge might need to be balanced out with other spices), or splashed liberally on your meal. Particularly good with fries ;)

A good one for those who are bored with Tabasco and want something with slightly more body, but don't want to leave their eyebrows sweating after a meal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious Table Sauce, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent all-rounder that can be used either in cooking to add a little bit of zing to a sauce or as a table sauce to liven up your meal. Not so hot as the red habanero sauce, it nevertheless packs enough heat to get your attention. Superb as a relish for hot dogs and burgers.

Hotter than: Tabasco Original, Trapper's Red Devil, Texas Pete's Original
Similar to: Tabasco Habanero, Pain Is Good Louisiana Style
Milder than: Any "serious" hot sauce.
