5.0 out of 5 stars Totally gripping, 14 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Inshallah (Kindle Edition)
This is a brilliant debut novel.
Despite being well outside my own experiences, the situations and atmosphere conjured up by this book were totally believable and almost tangible. The book moved fast enough to keep my interest, but slow enough to build the tension amazingly. Its not often that I read a book that sucks me in in the way that this one did.
I look forward to more by this author.

Check the description of the shoes carefully, the picture and some of the description suggested black was an option, but its not the case. If white is what you want, then great

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a book focusing on the human side ..., 11 Nov. 2014
A gem of a book focusing on the human side of an inhuman war.
Don't expect to get the details of how the Bletchley Park teams cracked the codes of the Second World War. Instead there is a focus on the personal,the story of an extraordinary life, the sense of duty and the ability to keep the secret. Some of the values exemplified in this book are long gone, but should be remembered and celebrated.

Unexpectedly, its a page turner and a tear jerker.

The book is as good as I remembered from childhood, but the Kindle edition is very poor, with lots of words that run into the other. Its a frustrating read, sadly

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally brilliant, 25 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have pile carpet in my study area - a pretty standard depth. Scooting my chair around was like pushing it uphill. I have tried out different chairs but without success. This mat has changed everything. The chair moves on the mat, but the mat doesn't slip over the carpet. It's a great help ergonomically, as micro movements are important, but its also saving the wear on the carpet too. Now I have one, I wouldn't be without it and will be recommended it to all my friends

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, but..., 23 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It does exactly what it says on the tin - seems to be true plug and play, very easy to set up and simple to use
But like Nikki, it doesn't work easily in all set ups and its the public/ unfamiliar settings where you may need reliability most, so do check before you start speaking
I assume that that is the configuration of the computer / projector not the device so I'd love to give 4.5 as the score.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the duck, hate the hook, 30 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The duck contains a simple countdown timer which is all that you need to initiate "shorter shower" competitions. We are already down to 2 minutes 45 seconds, and getting lower, without skimping on cleanliness. It's a really great idea for getting the whole household enthusiastic about water saving.

However, and it's a big however, the duck is held up by a very small suction device. I have others in the bathroom that work well, but this one keeps on jettisoning the duck to the floor tiles. Since the duck is hard plastic, he's not long for this planet.
There's a second however, and that is that the instructions tell you not to spray water directly on the duck. It's a race against time whether over exhuberent showering or a catastrophic fall will get him first.
