Price: £27.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Great general purpose hiking shoe, 29 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my second pair of Karrimor womens low rise hiking shoes. I usually wear a size 5 shoe and these fitted perfectly as a size 5 hiking shoe. I can wear them we a normal pair of socks (i.e. not thick walking socks) and they are very comfortable. They've got a really good grip and an excellent inner membrane that keeps you feet dry. For general walking both countryside and pavement I can't beat them.
Whilst called "weathertite" do not expect these to be 100% waterproof though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Based on the age of the laptop I didn't want to purchase a genuine Acer battery and was happy to try something that was a third, 7 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this battery for a four year old laptop where the original battery had totally failed. Based on the age of the laptop I didn't want to purchase a genuine Acer battery and was happy to try something that was a third of the the price. The battery fitted without problem, charges and discharges and has done precisely what I wanted i.e. extended the life of the laptop.
The reason for 3 stars is, despite following the instructions regarding calibrating the battery the correlation between percentage charge and estimated operating time is very hit and miss. I'm not sure at this point just how long the battery will extend the laptop life but anything over 12 months will be good. I will try to up date this later to give an idea of how well the battery is performing.
Review update I have been using this battery for approximately 9 months and I estimate it is about 70% as efficient as the original Acer battery. If the battery had been for a new laptop I would have found this disappointing but for an older machine and the way I use it (i.e. generally connected to the mains but with limited battery only use) it is fine for the initial cost.

4.0 out of 5 stars if you want simple heavy cotton shorts with good front pockets these should be ideal, 25 Aug. 2015

If you want a fashion statement these are not for you, if you want simple heavy cotton shorts with good front pockets these should be ideal.

A good first book, some excellent ideas, a more established author would probably have produced a more polished book. An author for the future.

This review is from: Storytone (Audio CD)
One for Neil Young fans and even then it isn't an instant hit.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Japanese Fairy Tales (Paperback)
If you like sugar coated Fairy Tales where "everyone lives happily ever after" then these are not for you. The stories have more in common with the darker un-sanitised brothers Grimm tales than Disney! An interesting collection if you want to understand a little more about Japan.

These books are fantastic - as long as you're not wanting deep meaningful discussion on the meaning of life and are just looking for non-stop action and OTT escapes then Matthew Reilly books are a must. There is no let-up in the action from beginning to end.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite sometimes not quite managing to decide if this was going to be a love story (between two quite different characters) or a fantasy novel this is a good book. More likely (in my opinion) to appeal to female readers of fantasy genre.
