The Book Thief
The Book Thief
by Markus Zusak
Edition: Paperback
Price: $8.52
498 used & new from $3.97

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent writing, plot and mostly the strength of being able to write WW2 from the eyes of a virtuous child., January 22, 2014
This review is from: The Book Thief (Paperback)
I enjoyed almost every minute of the book. It has everything-war, love, coming-of-age, self love and self-hate. Using a humorous Death as the narrator brings a unique perspective. I never realized this was considered youth-fiction until I read reviews. Zusak is a powerful storyteller.

1.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to operate, especially for the elderly and relatively weak, yellow light., November 25, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The vendor of this IBEAM ANALOG sells products to help elderly people remain functional.
However this is not a good product for elderly people. The watch face is black with white numbers. Harder to read than black numbers on a white background, the pattern which you see on eye charts.
Its yellow light beam is relatively weak, and inferior that found on the IBEAM DIGITAL which is brighter and pure white. Unfortunately, to turn on the light, one must press down on a pointy metal button at 3 o'clock on the frame of the watch. There is a lot of resistance and the button is difficult and slightly painful to push down as far as is necessary. This would be even more difficult for the elderly--or anyone with limited strength & agility of fingers, wrist, forearm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little beret, July 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
very reasonably priced, small, lightweight and not one of those large berets that are more like a shower cap. 2 thumbs up :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Decent mystery BUT unnecessary prolongation of abuse, June 11, 2013
This review is from: Risk [LegacyTitleID: 24076]
The story itself was interesting, though some of the culprits were obvious early on. However there are 3 prolonged periods where the protagonist is brutally abused - physically and mentally. There are long descriptions of sadistic torture which could have been drastically shortened with no detriment to the story, character or plot. This might be a case of filler to lengthen the book; in any case it made the book an unpleasant experience for me and I am sorry I wasted so much time with it.
I had the Audible version: Roger Cosham the narrator is the best in his field--which made up for some of the disappointment with the book.

Levi's Men's 505 Regular Fit Jean, Midnight Oil, 29x30

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful jeans, April 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are beautiful "midnight oil" colored blue-black jeans. Everyone's different, but 505s fit me very well. Note that the size number is smaller than the actual jean, i.e. I usually wear 31, but these feel the same and are labelled 29 waist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great walking harness, April 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This harness helps prevent pulling and is better for a dog's neck. I started with the puppy size and continued when he was all grown. My friends also changed their dog's collar for this one. Highly recommended!

I really like all Rockports, especially pro walkers, and this square-toe. They're comfortable and easy on the feet. "two thumbs up!"

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent video using clicker and positive training methods., April 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The video gives clear directions and uses real dogs to show how training with positive reinforcement can get good results. A little too much time spent dramatizing dogs jumping on houseguests. Neverthelss, the best video I've seen yet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not waterproof & gets dirty - but still very good, April 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I learned the hard way that walking a dog with this lead gets it pretty dirty as it gets pulled on the ground. My friend suggested lamp wire or telephone cord wire which are impermeable. Nevertheless this is a sturdy and easy to see lead.

1.0 out of 5 stars DON"T WASTE MONEY AND TIME ON THIS, April 4, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My dog groomer recommended this and without much critical thinking, I just ordered it. It does NOTHING at all, and worse, it is not refundable! If you think about it, it's logical that there is no effect: there is no possible overdose, it is the same dose for all pets like parakeets or St Bernards.
