2.0 out of 5 stars Why the rave reviews?, 19 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Caliente (Paperback)
I ordered this book with a gift voucher because of a life-long interest in Cuba. I'm grateful I didn't pay for it. I do not understand the 5 star reviews. My impression was of two very unpleasant people behaving very badly in Cuba. They were totally irresponsible, constantly drunk and careless of the country's laws. The book painted an interesting picture of the underbelly of socialist Cuba (hence 2 stars rather than 1); it portrayed quite well those living outside the law and showed the ways some Cubans attempt to rise above their poor prospects - a Cuba the tourists don't see. But this in no way compensated for the terrible behaviour of the writer, his business partner and many of the participants. How they got away with it (temporarily) is a mystery. The blurb describes this as a love story. If so it's a rough-and-ready love story indeed - I thought their attitude to women was appalling. Pride and Prejudice it isn't. I needed a shower after reading it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bit quirky but very effective., 9 Feb. 2012

A really powerful vacuum cleaner that takes no prisoners when it comes to getting bits of old animal out of the carpet. Only criticisms are smallish capacity and a bit fiddly to release the hose.
Otherwise, if you've animals (including kids) that shed crud everywhere, well worth getting.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very effective...., 9 Feb. 2012

I'd hoped this would make cleaning my aquarium gravel relatively quick and easy but I'll stick with 'hoovering' the gravel when doing water changes. Too much faffing around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent,, 9 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very easy to set up and link with my iphone. Sound quality isn't perfect although some people I've talked to have been very impressed and didn't realise I was on a hands free.
Battery life is very good and seems to last for ages in between charges.

Tried a couple of other iphone holders and this is the best. Very stable and well made just a little bulky which makes siting a bit tricky.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great aid when you're starting out with valve amps., 9 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As I've recently started building valve amplifier kits, I've found Morgan Jone's book a very valuable reference and no doubt will continue to be when moving on to more ambitious projects.
