5.0 out of 5 stars Speedy delivery, brilliant product., 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered this expecting standard delivery and it arrived in 2 days, which was brilliant as we are in the middle of a heat wave! It was really easy to put up and looks great. Very happy with this product.


So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish: 4/5 (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)
So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish: 4/5 (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)
by Douglas Adams
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated fourth book of the trilogy., 1 Oct. 2010
Space, romance and comedy.

Untouchable, no matter how many try to create something similar.


Fairy Tales (Puffin Books)
Fairy Tales (Puffin Books)
by Terry Jones
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Bonkers bedtime stories., 1 Oct. 2010
As you read - and these stories are best read aloud to wide-eyed children - you can feel yourself channeling the delicious Terry Jones. A must for any household that treasures those before-bed moments when magic is possible.

Terry's Python years have given him a facility with unexpected, yet apposite, phrasing that twists the reader's mind - pulling the carpet out from beneath your expectations.

Tis pity that the hardback with the beautiful artwork seems to be out of print; I'd have given that five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid, 1 Oct. 2010
Looks great. And does the job perfectly.

Tip. If you buy more than one, don't mix up the lids. If you do, they may not seal as well.

Other than that, you couldn't ask for more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun in the sun, 1 Oct. 2010
Not really challenging enough to get a five star review. And what's happening with the actors' unintentionally hilarious accents? It can't be that difficult to find a person with an true English accent: come to Britain - there's 40 million of us.

Still, a ton of fun, and creates a great atmosphere. Hours of leaping, slicing and falling off things. Marvellous stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pathetically grateful., 1 Oct. 2010
Almost completely removed the pain of my plantar fasciitis overnight. Fellow sufferers of that pain in your heel that feels like it's been bashed with a hammer because their fallen arches have led to strain on their soft tissues: do your exercises and buy this product or one similar. It's a new lease of life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kill, kill, kill., 1 Oct. 2010
The noise is incessant, the graphics make your eyes water, it is impossible for anyone else to be in the room while you play. I love it. More games should be as joyfully mindless as this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it's meant to do for the price., 1 Oct. 2010
There's definitely a knack to using this so that you don't end up with tea leaves in the bottom of your cup, but it's worth the perseverance.

Time for a cup of tea and a nice sit down, I reckon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Careful with that lid, Nigella., 12 Mar. 2009
Lovely deep bread bin that holds a tremendous amount. The bin itself is well-crafted, of a serious heft, and feels great to the touch.

The lid/breadboard, however, seems inferior, flimsy and, well, not of the same quality as the rest of the product. I hear that most stockists will replace the lids without question when they inevitably warp.

On the whole, we're glad we bought it. It holds one metric shedload of bread, crumpets and pitta, and looks stylish. For now.

5.0 out of 5 stars By the way, this ain't pink., 26 Jun. 2002
This review is from: Rebuild the Wall (Audio CD)
Oh, joy!
Roger Waters must be a-spinnin' in his grave. The usually po-faced and sancimonius Pink Floyd are here affectionately, yet mercilessly covered by a bunch of Canadian hicks. The whole of 1978's The Wall performed in a Country and Western style. Complete with banjos and beautifully parodied between-tracks samples ("How can you have any puddin', if you don't eat yer chicken?").
I love mid-period Pink Floyd; spent large swathes of my teenage years (that would have been better used chasing girls) with headphones clamped to my head, analysing the deeper troughs of "Mother", and generally taking the whole Floyd ethic way too seriously. Not only is this album beautifully recorded, it's hilarious. And keeps me grinning fondly for its entirity.
A gift to mankind. Buy it for the same person you bought the "Echoes" compilation last Xmas.
Love to you all,
Damian
