1.0 out of 5 stars Cigar schmigar!, 7 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you want something that tastes anything like a cigar, forget this product! It may look like a cigar (from a distance) and produce satisfying clouds of white vapour but words fail me when it comes to describing the weird and unpleasant flavour. Super unrealistic in terms of tasting anything remotely like a cigar.
In view of the cracking reviews posted by most other customers, it leaves me wondering what else they may have been smoking
alongside this faux product. I'm off elsewhere to sample versions containing nicotine. I doubt they'll be much better, but they couldn't be worse.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor writing, clunky structure, 9 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
How this ever got shortlisted for the Mann Booker is beyond me. Poor writing, clunky structure, cardboard characters, preposterous storyline and vacuous philosophising. I often thought of abandoning it but kept thinking that there had to be some redeeming twist or resolution at the end. Imagine my disappointment ...

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding read, 30 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A deeply moving meditation on what it is to be young and to be old, to survive through war and peace, and to both skim the surface of life and be touched by the profound. A beautifully written and constructed novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A stonking good novel, 8 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Man on the Move (Paperback)
Otto de Kat is a writer who knows how to communicate the deepest elements of what it is to be human without an iota of verbiage. Prose poetry at its best, I do not understand why this author is not more widely known ... other than the fact that he is Dutch!
Man on the Move explores what it is to be 'a man', through the life of an individual crippled by his emotional alienation from others and his inability to embrace and properly articulate his feelings. It creates a powerful portrait of someone running from themselves and the relationships and situations which threaten to ensnare them. A short but panoramic and powerful story whose dark and pessimistic themes are infused by writing of the highest order.

5.0 out of 5 stars A miniature masterpiece, 8 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Julia (Paperback)
I had never heard of this author, prior to reading a tiny review in a Sunday newspaper. But I thank my lucky stars that I was led to this book, which is a delightful and deeply touching piece of writing. There are times when the prose soars into the realms of pure poetry. A very short novel, its brevity and simplicity conceal the power of its emotional impact. One of the most affecting love stories I have ever read, it touches on the deepest predicaments of passion, loss and and guilt. A word is not wasted in painting a touching picture of a doomed relationship which ignites against the backdrop of Nazi Germany and continues to reverberate through the decades that follow. A masterful and realistic account of what it is to be a man forever scarred by lost love.
I have recommended this book to a number of friends and am so enthusiastic about it that I wanted to do the same to Amazon readers. I am amazed that this is the first review of Julia that has been posted here but feel quite privileged to be the one to do it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a read, 8 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Granite Rain (Kindle Edition)
These stories are written with a light and often quirky touch which entertains and engages. But beneath the apparent simplicity and easy-going style lurk twists and turns which echo the darker side of life and relationships. I look forward to hearing more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be put off by the low price, 25 Nov. 2012

These may be as cheap as chips compared to the cost of Epson originals, and cheaper than other non-branded alternatives, but they work just fine. I have been using them for a couple of months and am completely satisfied with the results. I'll be buying them again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special or fancy, 25 Nov. 2012

But it does the job and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. A very satisfactory product, unless you happen to be a coffee officiando who wants to make a song and dance over every cup you brew!

Having struggled for months with a pathetically poor Wahl beard trimmer, this model is a delight to use. Simple, effective and well designed. It does what it says on the box. Good price too.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a load of rubbish!, 20 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is, without doubt, on of the worse products I have ever owned. It's basically a badly designed piece of cheap tat which is fiddly and almost impossible to use. I dropped it on the bathroom floor yesterday and it broke. What a relief! Now I can get something that is fit for purpose, which this Wahl certainly never was. What a waste of money. Avoid at all costs.
