5.0 out of 5 stars Great case, makes the device easy to hold., 9 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great case. Really easy to grip. The bezels on the Nexus 9 are very slight which makes the device a great size but hard to hold without a case like this. The extra 'bulk' that some people complain about this case doesn't bother me at all, in fact it is just what you need to hold it with ease. The material is also perfectly sturdy - once on it won't easily come off so you can hold it by an edge no problem.

1.0 out of 5 stars Garbage. Well meaning, but garbage., 9 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sea Swallow (Hardcover)
Thought my daughter would enjoy this book because it is based on the area in which we live. It has to be the worst children's book I have ever read. I don't believe that kid's books all need to be about happy cuddly kittens, but this book has nothing for children to enjoy. It is dark, depressing, and doesn't really turn around at any point. It is very poorly written. The artwork is okay but won't really impress any kids. Think this is just my opinion and maybe I'm being too harsh? Well this used book arrived with a library ticket in it and I was concerned it had been stolen so I contacted Lancashire Libraries. I learned that lots of libraries and schools in this area had been given the book because the local council invested in it, thinking the geographical tie-in could be good for tourism. They even commissioned sculptures for the beach based on the book. But all the schools and libraries agreed it was rubbish, nobody wanted to read it, hence they all got rid of them.

1.0 out of 5 stars breaks your tablet., 16 May 2015

The magnet that turns the screen on and off breaks the gyroscope sensor. Now my tablet doesn't auto rotate. This is a known problem... Google it. I would not recommend this case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the original but great in it's own right., 17 July 2014
This isn't the classic series, and no it isn't as great. But it does stand up in its own right and retains at least some of the spirit of the original. There is an even newer remake than this which is truly awful, and by comparison this is great. If you've watched the original episodes a million times and want more, get this. If only for the amazing episode where Pink Panther meets the Aardvark and the Ant, with the original voice actor reprising the roles!

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks great, screen protector superb, but not that durable., 3 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First impression is that it looks and feels great. It doesn't make the phone feel too much bulkier. It's like having two cases - the inner layer is latex rubber and the outer shell is hard plastic. The screen protector that comes with it is one of the best and easiest to apply I have ever found. But I have to say that I no longer have the case, I'd say it lasted about 5 months. The harder outer shell scuffs easily and after a couple of months it cracked slightly. Eventually the crack got worse and a chunk of it came away. Once that happened the shell seemed to lose its grip on the rubber layer and the case literally fell off sometimes. The rubber layer is far to flimsy to have on its own, so the whole case becomes useless. Shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book makes it worth learning to read, 21 July 2004
This review is from: Tell No One (Paperback)
I used to read so many books, once upon a time. I dont know what happened - everything I do persuade myself to read these days seems to become a chore after a few chapters. Now I have just finished "Tell No One" in 3 sittings, and I am here on Amazon to buy more of Harlan Coben's books. "Tell No One" is an incredible read - Coben manages to skip the unnecessary waffle so loved by his peers and get right to the story, and yet still manages to make all his characters become entirely real to you. It's all in the dialogue, which speaks volumes about each character in the novel. You NEED to read this story, and somebody needs to turn it into a movie. No, on second thoughts - leave it as it is. Harlan Coben has got me reading again!
