1.0 out of 5 stars This sucks. No, it really sucks., 12 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This sucks. No, it really sucks. It barely moves the leaves - and if they're a bit damp, forget it. Tried it a few times but have gone back to using the rake. Possibly the most useless this I have ever bought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced sci-fi, 13 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Shift (Kindle Edition)
The fast-paced narrative in Shift leaves the reader little time to stop and think - yet Shift is overflowing with clever ideas that will stick with you for a long time after you've reached the last page. I'm an enthusiastic fan of the 'uncertain reality' theme, as frequently and most expertly explored by Philip K. Dick for example. While Shift is clearly aimed at the younger reader - (not too young; there's some language and gory scenes along the way) - it still manages to do a similarly great job of constructing a self-consistent, believable world in which the nature of reality is brought into question and you're left thinking about the consequences.

Following the best practice for reviews; let me give 'three stars and a wish' - something most teens would be familar with. First the pacing was spot on - Shift really does rattle along, but without ever feeling rushed. Second; the careful construction of the Shifter world, with all its complications and implications: Kim Curran really has done a top job here. Third the characterisation of Scott; identifiable, flawed, credible hero through which the story is told. And a wish? More development of Aubrey and the other key characters. However, hopefully there'll be time for that in the sequel ...

5.0 out of 5 stars My most used cook-book, 21 July 2008
Simple, fool-proof recipes from easy to find ingredients: and delicious results. Most recipes are pictured, and many are the single pot dishes that can be prepared in advance.

5.0 out of 5 stars minimalistic, slow, ... perfect, 14 July 2008
A minimalistic unhurried playing of Satie far from the romantic orchestrations usually heard; and in a different class altogether. Like the impressionist paintings of the time, only with precisely placed dabs of sound rather than paint - with each given its own space. Perfect.
