1.0 out of 5 stars I think the seal around the lid and frother isn't good enough or something but after minutes of vigorous pumping ..., 26 April 2017

It just doesn't froth the milk. I think the seal around the lid and frother isn't good enough or something but after minutes of vigorous pumping the milk is completely unfrothed.

Jerusalem (One Volume Hardback Edition)
Jerusalem (One Volume Hardback Edition)

5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific book that's difficult to read - physically., 24 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am thoroughly enjoying this book. Alan Moore's prose is hugely engaging and quite beautiful in its own way.
The only thing I would suggest is that you have a Kindle or anything else capable of reading ebooks, get the Kindle edition because it's really difficult to read. The pages are tissue thin and the tiny text bleeds through making it a real challenge (think The Bible). Physical books of this many words just aren't very practical.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous pen. Minor caveats., 23 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is indeed a lovely pen with smooth flowing ink from the first stroke. It's a beautiful and unique design and the contrast of dark oak wood with polished chrome really stands out. Definitely my new favourite.
Three small points that I hope are useful to future potential purchasers (collectively they are what knocked one off of what would otherwise be a solid 5 star review.
1) Despite the picture, this pen did not come in a presentation box but in a standard cardboard box (which was a little beaten up). If you're buying as a present, you'll need to invest separately.
2) The pen lid is heavy. It feels great quality but if you like to post your fountain pens you will find it a little top heavy with the lid posted when you're writing.
3) It's a fat pen. Again, this feels great quality and it's lovely to hold but it's an extremely tight fit for a notepad's pen loop. I have three different loops on three different notebooks and it would only fit into one of them - the leather Midori loop. The others have no chance of squeezing it in.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really bad idea. They are OK for the first use ..., 11 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these to make extra dinner portions that I could save and microwave. Really bad idea.
They are OK for the first use but are utterly useless for subsequent uses because they crack and fracture during cleaning.
They are exactly the same as those cheap containers you get from a takeaway - i.e. they are good for ONE use only. They crack around the lid and are just very, very brittle.
Don't buy them if you want to reuse them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terribly badly written, 5 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has to be the worst self-published novel I've ever read. I can't begin to imagine how it has such a high rating because the writing is truly terrible. It's like something written for GCSE English homework.
Fortunately you don't have to take my word for it. Download the first part free and read the first couple of very short chapters. Cringingly bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pricey but STUNNING quality if you like good paper to write on, 27 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So you're not going to buy Leuchtturm books if all you want is something to scribble in and rip from. But if you value beautiful paper to write journals in or to keep forever, they are worth every penny.
Sorry, Moleskine. Crown taken.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to get out!, 27 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The blades are fine - once you can get to them!
They come in a plastic box that supposedly makes it easy to dispose of old one and get new ones. Mine didn't slide out properly and I couldn't get to the blades inside. Ended up taking a hammer to the thing and blades now stored in a separate box. Over-engineered design!
