Land (Stranded Book 1)

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile purchase, September 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Not a romp, but an engaging thought experiment - which is better and more chewy. I liked that Ms. Shaver avoided the whole "Road Warrior" testosterone driven post apocalypse scenario, and posited a rather more reasonable vision (IMO) of what such an event would bring.

And the protagonists were Canadian, eh? So you knew they were going to be as nice as events allowed.

4.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this series, September 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really enjoyed this series. It kept me guessing, which was a nice change. Mr. Hooke took this in an entirely unexpected direction, and I would like to see a followup featuring our hero wending his way through his civilization - infecting it with his new alternative view of life's purpose.

I got the first book for free, and bought the compendium because I was hooked at the end of the freebie. Well played, Mr, Hooke! Well played!

This was a fun read. The protagonist was supposed to be a teenage boy but sounded to me more like a teenage girl. If you take that to the side, it was enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars but some good recommendations on how to enter the business and what ..., July 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This isn't a full fledged guide on how to actually do the work. It's more of an idea book with little in the way of detail, but some good recommendations on how to enter the business and what tools you will need to begin with. If you're curious about the business, it is a starting point. You will need to find someone to teach you the how-tos or invest in a good watch repair book with good pictures to learn on your own, if you wish to pursue this profession. You cannot get there from here.

There is the usual level of grammar errors for a self-published short book. If you are bothered by such the book will annoy you. If you can ignore this, it's an interesting short read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read, June 17, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This was a good read that went fast. I am interested in how the story will progress over the next couple of tomes. The author struck a good balance between too much and not enough detail. I only found one annoying bit, which is better than most professionally edited works (well and truly, well and truly).

Looking forward to enjoying the next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Patterns in a well written pamphlet, August 28, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a pamphlet, not a book. Also, the illustrations are in black and white, so the only color is the cover. Fortunately, the entire selection is represented as swatches on the back cover so you can get an idea how they look when done.

The best part is the writing is very clear, and the instructions are easy to follow. I think the cost was a bit high for the product; I should have read the description more carefully. But it is something I can work from and that is what I wanted, so it will do.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a gas mask, July 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
What can I say? It really is a gas mask, with filter, one size fits most. Freaked out my dogs a bit, which is kind of a plus. I plan on using it for power painting, spraying trees, halloween costumes, SCUD attacks,etc.

1.0 out of 5 stars Make sure to check it out with free download first - doesn't work on all computers, May 31, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As I say above. Made the mistake of trusting it would work and bought it without checking it first. Amazon game downloads are iffy. Live and Learn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for long days and nights of surveillance, April 22, 2011
As the title says. Just unhook before giving chase. Works a treat, taking notes, eating takeout, keeping camera handy, yada yada.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect little ice cream maker, July 5, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Nice little maker, does a good job. As the others say, make sure to get your custard down to fridge temp; America's Test Kitchen reported get it down to 40 F, and the freezer part of the maker down to 0 F.
