The Slaver Wars: First Strike
The Slaver Wars: First Strike
Price: £3.00

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.

Light (Kefahuchi Tract Trilogy Book 1)
Light (Kefahuchi Tract Trilogy Book 1)
Price: £5.99

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
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart and compact fire, 12 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This electric fire is small and compact and is a useful added heat source for a large room in winter when the radiator doesn't quite prove adequate. Maybe I Should have given it 4 stars though as it really could do with a thermostat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not the best, 11 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good radio.Just one but... My previous radio was a Ranger which is a bit larger than the Roberts and unlike the latter had good reception at all volume levels. The Roberts becomes slightly distorted at higher volume settings.
