5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the horrible colour, this cable is great, 20 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my wife as her cable had become frayed. Works well with mini iPad and charges efficiently and quickly. Colour is a ghastly pink but that does have the advantage that it's difficult to misplace it. Good product, good seller.

This review is from: Human (Audio CD)
What a fabulous debut. Imagine a mixture of Ce-Lo Green, Terence Trent D'Arby and Marvin Gaye and you'll have an idea of how good this is. For a big guy, he can do a mean falsetto but most of the time he kind of growls in a melodic soul vein. The lyrics are good, the musicianship is excellent and it's all thoroughly enjoyable. I'll be listening to this one for a while.

Extremely useful. Seems to pop open just at the right page and has plenty of space for notes.


Night School: (Jack Reacher 21)
Night School: (Jack Reacher 21)
by Lee Child
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £15.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Sloppy but still readable. May change your impression of Jack., 9 Jan. 2017
This book is sloppy, but still very readable. First some of the sloppiness " He could hear a faint penumbra of noise from the city." You can't hear a penumbra, you see it. It's part of a shadow. Even worse is this from the obligatory sex scene. "She peeled her panties off. He did the same." Yikes, has JR been a secret transvestite all these years? Please no. It was bad enough having him portrayed on-screen by Tom Cruise Lee Child has also developed a horrible tic in this novel of repeating descriptions. So, invariably Dr Sinclair is described as golden hair, posh black dress, smart pantyhose and pearls. Not a great habit.
In fact, to me it seems that Lee Child has used an extra writer who is good at imitating his style but hasn't quite got it right.
The readability comes from the sheer pace, the action sequences and the Sherlock-type deductions we're all used to by now from Jack Reacher. The previous book, Make Me was a welcome return to form. This one is at least two steps backwards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lest we forget, 29 Nov. 2016

Great book. Details the tragic events of the very last day of the war from various perspectives (American (of course), British, French and German) and intersperses this with a potted history of the war itself. Very readable

Not impressed. OK it was cheap but it was annotated in parts and out of date. I would have been better off going to the library and photocopying the pages I needed.

Not that impressed. The suction cups don't seem to be able to take much weight; my cycling shorts when wet for example were too much for them. It's handy having hooks but only if there is something you can latch them on to.

5.0 out of 5 stars He doesn't pull any punches with his descriptions of horrible wounds and he's pretty scathing about the French army ..., 14 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this after hearing Francois Hollande read an extract from it at Thiepval Memorial. It's a really moving account of Duhamel's service during WW1. He doesn't pull any punches with his descriptions of horrible wounds and he's pretty scathing about the French army command. Not an enjoyable read but a necessary one.
