2.0 out of 5 stars I have used many wifi smart devices, all of them worked straight out of ..., 4 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works well locally, but adding remote control to use with alexa didn't work. It could not connect to their cloud servers via a standard BT hub. They had me do a firmware update, then alter firewall settings on the router to no avail. The wanted me to turn the firewall off (good grief!) to test!
I have used many wifi smart devices, all of them worked straight out of the box except this. I see many people reporting the same issues online. It's a shame as it's a good device, just not yet ready as a consumer device which should simply work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did anyone proof read this?!, 7 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted to like this book, there could have been a good story. But ultimately, you have to wonder if anyone proof read or edited this; the writing / storyline gaffs were just about bearable until the ending turned out to be totally, tediously predictable. You wind up just not caring about the detail of what happens, as by 60% through you know all the answers.

1.0 out of 5 stars A plotline to nowhere., 16 Feb. 2017
This review is from: The Transition (Hardcover)
Yet another writer who can come up with a good storyline, but does not know where to go with it, and cannot write an ending. Ending a book well is probably the hardest part of writing...

1.0 out of 5 stars Sigh... Proof yet again that an author ..., 3 April 2016
Sigh... Proof yet again that an author can write a complex and interesting novel -- but have no idea how to write an ending. A trait too often seen in literature and film. Endings are the hardest thing to write, and all the more so if you have woven a complex story. Sadly, in the end, Fowles fails that test.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value case, 12 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great value case, fits perfectly, and the magnet works perfectly -- puts the kindle to sleep when closed, has no effect if folded back. Only small issue is sharp edges to the plastic made is a bit uncomfortable to hold, but easily fixed with a few moments work with a nail file!

Good quality cells and a simple but effective charger, proper UK plug, cells hold a good charge, as stated unlike some cells marked with crazy capacity! Great value.

2.0 out of 5 stars pretty poor., 3 May 2015
Well... That's not exactly a book.. Took 45 mins to read... And, well, pretty poor... Dreadful writing, and dreadful use of English. Not funny or sexy. At least it was free!

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor and obvious plot., 2 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Poorly written. You could work out the ending from a few pages in, and it's a daft ending. The author simply does not seem to be able to develop characters properly.
