4.0 out of 5 stars Fine so far, 13 Mar. 2016
May well be worth 5 Star but time will tell. So far works very well but only used it twice.

This review is from: The Time Bubble (Kindle Edition)
This seemed to me to have been written by an adolescent for adolescents - a sixth former, perhaps, writing a first novel mainly about sexual awakenings. The author shows great promise and I'm sure at a more mature age will write a really good novel for an adult audience. May I recommend instead 'Downstream' a novel which I thoroughly enjoyed.

2.0 out of 5 stars A good story spoiled by never ending descriptive meanderings., 22 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: THE TIME STORE (Kindle Edition)
A very good idea spoilt by incessant ramblings totally irrelevant to the plot. At times it's as if plot advancements have been distributed at long intervals throughout a large room filled with thick treacle. You have to slowly force yourself to trudge forward to reach each one. Interminable descriptions of, for example, a visit to a market including individual purchases in minute detail, go on for pages and pages. I read with increasing frustration to over half of this book until I reached a detailed historical lesson on The environs of Greenwich and The Cutty Sark and then I gave up! I kept thinking, FOR GOD's SAKE GET ON WITH IT!


The Slaver Wars: First Strike

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent, fast moving page turner., 25 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really great,exciting, page turning stuff. Have now read all so far of this series and have thoroughly enjoyed all of them. The only tiny minus aspect is perhaps the occasional romantic element but then that's me being an old fogey! Also, a wee bit grating again is the American obsession with big busts and accentuated female "cod" lips, eg. Even the artificial female intelligences create these for themselves - so that the male human crew members will ogle them???! Just a small additional point from a retired English teacher - perhaps a proof reader should have more carefully perused the pages as there are occasional errors such as "by" instead of the correct "my" , and semantic errors, eg, "interned", instead of "interred" and "an "abject" lesson" instead of " an object lesson" But, I know, I'm being really pedantic now and overall these books are a real credit to the genre. I recommend them to all lovers of Sci-FI and am at this very moment ordering the next book for a really good page turning read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Light (or Dark?), 31 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having been brought up on H.G Wells, Asimov, Wyndham etc.
this book left me cold. Whatever is the opposite of page turner (book closer?) this was it! Highly imaginative, certainly but unconstrained over the top imagination. Long, interminably tedious descriptions punctuated by pseudo scientific obscurantist gobledegook are padded out with boring dream sequences. A fragmentary story with unsympathetic characters searching for a worthwhile, interesting plot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Generally a good buy, 11 Nov. 2014

Am generally pleased with purchase though assembly required great strength to force side bars into plastic grooves and unit tends to work loose from time to time and needs frequent tightening.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreliable download experience, 28 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tried to download this repeatedly - my laptop is a new Toshiba with 8Gig Ram and using Chrome. It partly downloaded then kept stopping though with Virgin cable router I never usually experience problems. Contacted Amazon Help and their Rep patiently suggested remedies, finally suggesting change of browser. I lost patience and asked for my money back to spend on version through the post

5.0 out of 5 stars New lease of life for old razor, 12 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This foil has given me a new razor and I was not expecting the cutters to be included. Saved me going to the expense of a new shaver.
