Ohropax Earplugs Soft

Price: £3.37

5.0 out of 5 stars Sanity in a box!, 24 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm so glad I bought these! I actually bought these ear plugs for an upcoming long-haul flight but I've discovered their many merits at home too as I've tried them in different situations.
I'm a keen, though easily distracted, reader and I can now read in the same
room as my boyfriend when he's playing one of his noisy X-box games. They also work well for snoring. They're easy to
insert and as they expand in your ear after a few seconds it's as if someone's turning the volume dial down. Yay!
Ok, if the snorer / crying baby / upteenth Ryanair announcement is right near your ear (God love you), they are not as effective.
However, with a snorer about 2 feet away, job's a good 'un.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great gift, 24 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my motorcycle-loving brother as a birthday gift (of his recommendation).
The only thing I'd say is (and I know it's described as royal blue), but the photo is far off royal blue.
Apart from that, it's a cool tshirt :)

1.0 out of 5 stars o dear GOD!, 26 Aug. 2005
I am never listening to lots of people again!
In a bookshop where i worked everyday, i kept
hearing how good this was so i bought it (at least
there was a good chunk off the price, thank God)
to see what all the hype was about.
how i wish i hadnt bothered. the book was boring and
written in such a way so it was tedious to read,(maybe thats
why the chapters were so short, you want to feel like you're
some way to getting to the end and have a break from the irritating bloody characters)at some points i did want to give up, but i persevered to finish it.
my main annoyance about this book were the characters. They are just SO unlikeable. Even the names: Leigh Teabing (uggh,it sounds like he works for Twinings) Robert Langdon, Sophie Neveau.
And then theres Langdon's annoying trait of being embarrassed
at the mere mention of anything a bit sexual.
Leigh Teabing was also irritating, and Sophie Neveau totally one dimensional. they were all unlikeable in their own way.
having said all this, i may rent the DVD of the film when it comes out for a laugh at all the ridiculous dialogue actually being put out there for people to listen to.
people: dont follow the hype, im sorry i contributed to it by buying the book.
One final question: if Remy was known to be seriously allergic to peanuts, where the hell was his Epi-pen????

5.0 out of 5 stars could not put it down!!, 29 Jun. 2005
This review is from: Lorelei's Secret (Paperback)
Its rare i would give a full 5 stars to something,
but for this book it is absolutely deserved.
i was working in a bookshop and just saw the title as i was
tidying the shelves and was intrigued. even more so when i read
what it was about.
in the midst of all the too hyped blockbusters, and blah books that everyone thinks are great,
i found this little gem! its just a damn good mysterious and heartfelt story.
from the opening page i was gripped and found it
hard to put down, many chapters leaving you on the edge.
Unlike some books, i found myself really caring about all the main characters and a tear was shed , on two occasions!!
I think this is a brilliant, intriguing, and fascinating book
and i would highly recommend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars deceiving and too dark....you can hardly see!, 14 Jun. 2005
i watched this film thinking it would be a good thriller, but i
would have to agree that i was deceived into thinking this from the trailer and the cover.
instead it turns into a laughable film, i got fed up and couldnt really care less by the end, altho Julianne was great, as usual.
also, one thing that annoyed me intensly was it just got so dark... i mean i know it was supposed to be a sombre film
and to represent the bleakness since her son had "died",
but so much so that the screen went black a good few times, you couldnt follow the characters in one action scene
which i found very frustrating.
i would not recommend this, dont waste 2 hours of your life!
