Easier to use than all those fiddly moth repellent balls, papers etc. No nasty odour either.

5.0 out of 5 stars really useful gadget + free green power, 30 July 2016
really useful gadget. keeps my phone going on a regular 3 hour train journey I have to do. I put it in the way of any sunlight (it does not need much) , plug other end of cable into the phone and keep doing emails all the way. More fit for purpose than larger portable solar kit I have bought which claims to do more and doesn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars provides excellent improvement in ability to see, 21 July 2013

This review is from: B22 Bayonet Candle Daylight Bulb
These bulbs were recommended to us to provide an improved lighting environment for a 92 year old with advanced macular degeneration. The bulbs have certainly done this and so raised her spirits as well. So we have ordered some more now for the rest of the house. Many thanks.


Death Comes to Pemberley
Death Comes to Pemberley
by P. D. James
Edition: Audio CD

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 13 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This works on both levels - a PD James thriller and a Jane Austen style story with Jane Austen characters. It may not be a classic of either genre, but, for me anyway, it works much better as a fix for Jane Austen fans than does The Silk House as a fix for Sherlock Holmes fans, for instance. All the classic characters from the much loved Pride and Prejudice are there, with their lives transposed forward so they do not end at "and they all lived happily ever after". What each of the Austen characters does is plausible. The denouement is a bit implausible from the Austen genre but fits with other equally implausible, deus ex machina denouements from PD James.

It also has the characteristic PD James research of detail - this time of who is responsible for what in the judiciary of the time. Basically, the landowners rule everything, including being the magistrate and the detective.

Comment on the audio CD: The Reader's voice on the CD is well pitched and measured. Reads at the right speed and does not try too much in the line of immitating various characters' voices. Well read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing - and does not work on cats, 11 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product was disappointing. There is a design flaw which means that it can be difficult to press the button which activates the silent alarm without also pressing the button for the audible alarm. There was no mention in the product description that there was an audible alarm, which is such that it might be used effectively to ward off prospective attackers. I bought this to try and scare off the neighbours cats who lie in wait for our garden birds. But it seems to have absolutely no effect on the cats, they do seem to notice it as they look up and stare at me when I am pointing it at them and pressing hard. Also there was bit of a farce with it not arriving, so a second one was sent after few weeks, then first one arrived after a few more weeks.


The Hidden Man
The Hidden Man
by Charles Cumming
Edition: Audio CD

4.0 out of 5 stars complex contemporary spies with little action, 9 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hidden Man (Audio CD)
Charles Cumming has been hailed as the new John le Carre and certainly this book is as complex as any John le Carre but strangely has little action, although a film of the book would probably have lots of flash backs with action sequences. It is set in a world so contemporary that the Russians have become the bad guys again, so it is not just post cold war but post the immediate post cold war era. The legacy of war is also a theme as the horrors of what one's own side does in modern war leaves an indelible mark on some of the characters. Difficult to get into but definitely worth sticking with - probably also worth listening to a second time for more of it to fall into place. One down side, for me, is that the voice reading it is English estuarial and not very attractive or easy to listen to. Roll on the next Charles Cumming.
