Nice item. It would be helpful if the manufacturer gave some indication what age the sizes correspond to. I ordered L and they fit my 11-year-old nicely, but it was just a lucky guess.

This is the second pair of Desigual leggings I have bought, they are comfy and well made. The problem with this particular model, however, is that part of the design is missing and it doesn't look the same as in the photo. I returned the first faulty item, asked specifically whether all were like that, was told that the others were not faulty, consequently ordered again, just to get the very same faulty item for the second time.

Created as much heat as the old one and did not last longer than 90 min. Then after three months it died completely and would not charge at all

2.0 out of 5 stars Not angry, just disappointed, 4 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Pantheon (Kindle Edition)
Unfortunately I have to agree with most of the negative reviews of Sam Bourne's latest work. I had read Mr Bourne's (Freedland's) other books and found them perfectly passable but this one is a disappointment on a number of levels.(Spoiler alert!)
1) The main character is not engaging and while I vaguely sympathised with him, I found him infuriating and inconsistent.
2) The repetitive nature of the declaration of Dr Zennor's love for his wife and child really got on my nerves. It reminded me of the old adage about good movies "Don't tell me, show me". By repeating the same sentiment over and over the author did not make it more true of make me believe it more I simply felt a sensation of "I get it, now get on with it".
3) And this is my biggest bugbear is that the author judges writings and opinions of the early 20th century with the knowledge and sensitivities of the 21st century. We all understand that the Third Reich has altered the perception of eugenics irreversibly, but tarring everybody who saw this as an interesting idea in 1905 with the same brush as the people who sent millions to their death is at best lazy and at worst intentionally misleading. One major plotpoint is also based on a flawed logic that war is a way of weeding out the inferior subjects from a society. This would be vaguely true if the war would be fought in individual hand-to-hand combat but bombs don't differentiate between the capable and the unworthy.
