4.0 out of 5 stars A very satisfactory door bell, 28 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very simple to set up, works well and a very good price. Would like to have been able to vary the volume but that's a minor gripe.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor product, 24 Dec. 2015

Not quiet and the switch failed after only a few weeks. Replaced it with an iGenix kettle which is cheaper, better looking, lighter and quieter.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent buy, 24 Dec. 2015

Delighted with this purchase. A great looking kettle which works very well. Far superior to the Russell Hobbs kettle it replaced, which was heavier, noisier and stopped working after just a few weeks.

Delighted with my book. The condition was described as 'very good' but it was in beautiful condition. Delivery took a while but well worth the wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what is needed!, 14 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Grub screws have a real habit of going missing and when they do they're hellishly difficult to replace. I was about to throw out a perfectly serviceable towel rail, purely through the loss of a grub screw, when I came across this product. With a wide selection of different sizes, I was able to find just the one I needed and put the rail back into service. Job done and I still have 39 grub screws for future use! Great value for money and something I was unable to find anywhere else.


Being Mortal: Illness, Medicine and What Matters in the End (Wellcome)
Being Mortal: Illness, Medicine and What Matters in the End (Wellcome)
by Atul Gawande
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £15.74

5.0 out of 5 stars An enriching but difficult book, 14 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In the great tradition of the wounded healer, Gawande utilises the dying and death of his own father to help illuminate the challenging issue of how we treat those approaching the end of their lives. His intelligent, well informed and sensitive approach to a subject that too often becomes 'the elephant in the room' is extremely illuminating. And his own medical background, and understanding of how doctors think, really helps to explain why the process of dying and death has become so highly medicalised and often insensitive to a wider and perhaps deeper perspectives of human need.
Old age, sickness and death were what the young Buddha saw all around him when he first ventured into the world. Despite developments in modern medicine these facets of the First Noble Truth remain an unavoidable consequence of life. Gawande's contemporary take on these, along with his reflections on how we might approach them in a more humane way, is a valuable contribution to the debate on how we might improve the way people experience the end of their lives.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 14 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is considerable light leakage from under the nose area of these masks. And although I accept that they are more comfortable and less sweaty to wear than the flatter, more conventional type I still found it disturbed my sleep to wear them all night.
For me, the ear plugs supplied with these masks were unusable. They are very firm and difficult to squeeze into a shape which allows them to be inserted and fitted in the ear.

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 ...
