5.0 out of 5 stars It is a good quality product, 6 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is very much my partners’ review

This is probably the everyday moisturizer that you want to use if you have normal to combination skin. I found this product good at what it does.

I have in certain areas oily skin that can be sensitive, and other areas that can dry out. This is a good moisturiser and keeps my skin hydrated and counteract the drying effects of the in other areas. Be warned though, if you have oily skin you will be horrified when you first apply it - it looks greasy, but if you use a small sized amount all over face and neck and wait for a while you will notice all of the product actually absorbs very well - patience is key with this product! It is non-greasy, very fluid overall texture.

Would easily recommend this, it is a good quality product.

4.0 out of 5 stars A study of the association between the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and its own affiliates, 5 July 2015
The author Hazem Kandil is the Cambridge University Lecturer in Political Sociology and Fellow of St Catharine's College. His areas of interest are power relations in revolution and war, focusing on the Middle East, Western Europe, and North America.

Islamism is a term that seems to be used widely in general usage and within the context of this book. It's a term that refers to political Islam as a set of ideologies holding that "Islam should guide social and political as well as personal life". "Islamism" is a controversial neologism whose meaning sometimes varies. To my complete ignorance this is term I have not come across before, and thought it best to look-up and to try best explain its meaning, as it refers to the narrative at hand.

The founding of the Muslim Brotherhood in Ismailiyah in Egypt around 1928 by Hassan al Banna was possibly the first, largest and most significant modern Islamic political/religious organization. With the maxim "the Qur'an is our constitution," it wanted Islamic renewal through preaching and by supplementing its ethos through basic civic services including schools, masjids, and workshops. There was also the need to encourage and promote the use of Sharia Law in Egyptian society.

This book is comprehensive study of the association between the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and its own affiliates. The research that has gone into this work has taken years to gather through observation, interviews, looking through previously isolated organizational papers, and writings, the book provides a representation of the enlistment and socialization of Brothers, the development of their complex societal networks, and the creation of their `brand' ideology that forms their daily practices.

The author shows why an attempt to compare the Brotherhood to secular social movements or other types of religious activism is a misnomer, and seeks instead to decipher the group's unique mind set. The author gives his understanding of the Brotherhood's slow rise and rapid downfall from power in Egypt, and compares it to the `Islamist franchises' it created and the variations it enthused around the world.

This text will be of interest to students and scholars of the politics of the Middle East. It should also be of interest to anyone who wants to comprehend the intense events currently transpiring in Egypt and elsewhere in the wake of the Arab uprisings.

5.0 out of 5 stars A World where you are on the menu, 5 July 2015
This is book two of the Zombie Fallout series and pretty much picks up the action where book one left of. So what you get nice even spacing in the narrative. Our narrator does an excellent job of telling the tale, and his characteristics are very well done you really get a feel for the post-apocalyptic world, where the unnatural fusion of blood sucker bite (500 hundred year old vampire) and an anti-viral vaccine combine to create flesh hungry Zombies. What sets this tale apart from the plethora of Zombie books out there are the clear use of funny anecdotes and sprinkling of great humour. Without giving away spoilers this is a great series of books and really well told stories that are not predictable. I forget to mention. While they are alive the characters are really well rounded. If you have any interest in this type of horror genre you'll love these books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talbot and his family are as good as prime rib, 5 July 2015
This is book three of the Zombie Fallout series and pretty much picks up the action where book two left of. So what you get nice and even spacing in the narrative, the story is relatively original in its telling. When the action happens it comes out of left field. The main protagonist Mr Talbot comments; at the end of book two that if not for his marine training he and his family would prime rib for the Zombies. As in the previous two books the narrator does an excellent job of telling the tale, and his characterisations are very well done you really get a feel for the post-apocalyptic world, where a 500 hundred year old vampire and her perpetual hungry hordes of Zombies are homing in our survivors. What sets this tale apart from the plethora of Zombie books out there are the clear use of funny anecdotes and sprinkling of great humour/sarcasm, some reviewers have not liked the light side to these books, but I for one think they make these books. Without giving away spoilers this is a great series of books and really well told stories that are not predictable. I forget to mention. While they are alive the characters are really well rounded. If you have any interest in this type of horror genre you'll love these books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a great read, 4 July 2015
If you have read any of Jonathan Stroud’s other works such as the books in the Bartimaeus Sequence you know you are onto a winner. If you are new to his work then you’ll find in this offering that there is Ghost hunting, - where Ghosts kill, cause murder and mayhem. From the get go the book is great read, and once again the Mr Stroud’s abilities to generate some quirky but always well rounded and interesting characters is amazing. Really what is there not like about this book? In short this very good story telling and please do not pigeon hole yourself over which age group may read it, whether you in your teens or your sixties this book covers all.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Carl Kolchak states "your "so-called killer" wiped up the street with your so-called police force!", 4 July 2015
.
Reporter Carl Kolchak is now in Seattle, Washington, trying to solve the mystery of several strangulations that recur every few years where the victims are drained of blood in this second. of two TV movies portraying Carl Kolchak.

The success of the production led to a short run series as he is portrayed as a gifted investigative reporter with an attraction for unusual and paranormal occurrences, the viewer see him procuring evidence driving around Chicago in his yellow Ford Mustang convertible. Kolchak has persistently cracked several cases relying on gut instinct and often through sheer dumb luck. But more often than not, Kolchak's prospects are hindered by the complete obliteration of any or all proof to verify his claims. On other occasions his investigations have led to demotion or transfer of variable authority figures, the reasons for which are never truthfully disclosed, and hence the feeding the viewer's believe of a cover up.
As a youth I caught this film late night on the TV and found the whole movie rather spooky and scary at times. Kolchak was played by Darren McGavin, and he really brought a unique feel to the film - although I might add the Vampire was pretty spooky. The film may seem dated by today's standards but for me this was and is a cult classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Mike, family and co the nightmare continues. While for Trip he needs to get to the concert!, 4 July 2015
Just finished the unabridged version of book 7 - and I am left wanting more! Clearly the story will continue into a book 8, or more? I say this as Mike, family and friends are detained on secret military base, and there other major loose ends. I don't want to expand on this as I will give away spoilers. Sufficed to say that book seven of the Zombie Fallout series pretty much picks up the action where from book 6 left off. So what you get is nice even spacing in the narrative and a continuity that on the surface of things seems to work. Like all of the books in the series, the contents is a balance of humour and action that is so perfectly merged ,that a person needs to remember not to laugh out loud whilst reading/listening(Audio book) in a public place -lest you be looked as being a crazy person. There plethora of Zombie books out, but what sets these books apart, for me anyway, are the clear use of funny anecdotes and sprinkling of great humour/sarcasm, while some reviewers have not liked the light side to these books, but I for one think they make these books. For me the narrative is original, and I am sure that Tufo's take on Zombie `lore' will be, dare I say be `copied', and become mainstay in the genre. I can say with certainty that Book 7 does not disappoint. You get memorable characters such as Trip, who needs to get to his concert fast, and new characters that will have their own back story as well as well as `future' in books to come. For me the narrative delivers, and you get to see and feel a road trip from hell. The whole series is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mike, family and Co are what the Zombies really like - Free Range food, 4 July 2015
Review of unabridged Audio book

The narrator does an excellent job of telling the tale, and his characterisations are very well done you really get a feel for the post-apocalyptic world. The rag-tag group of survivors are pushed to the limit, again and again. What sets this tale apart from the plethora of Zombie books out there are the clear use of funny anecdotes and sprinkling of great humour. Without giving away spoilers this is a great series of books and the narrative is really well told. The stories surrounding our group, of misfit survivors, are not predictable. I forget to mention that while they are alive the characters are really well rounded. If you have any interest in this type of horror genre you'll love these audio books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Former Human Resources executive trying to survive a Zombie pandemic, 4 July 2015
This is book five of the Zombie Fallout series, and the narrative pretty much picks up the action where book four left off. So what you get is nice even spacing in the story. This is a tale apart from the plethora of Zombie books out there ; there is the clear use of funny anecdotes and sprinkling of great humour/sarcasm, some reviewers have not liked the light side to these books, but I for one think that is what makes these books work. Book 5 does not disappoint. You get memorable characters and a narrative that delivers 95% of the time, and you get a road trip from hell. The whole series is highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars These are good, 4 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Largely Lithium batteries are made to last longer in power-hungry devices such as digital cameras. The other reason I got these as they were rated as least likely to leak, which I had happen with other supposed ‘good’ quality batteries.
