4.0 out of 5 stars I like it, November 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've had the printer for three days, and had no trouble installing the driver on my computer. The paper is a little tricky to feed in, and I've already had a couple jams. I think I'll feel more comfortable using this printer once I've read through the users guide.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Coffeemaker, October 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This pot was a tad smaller than I anticipated, but that's okay. I only bought it so that I could make my own iced coffee during the summer. I couldn't find filters at my local Safeway in MD, but my parents brought me a package of 200 from MA (they were about two bucks...I would never purchase the ones on amazon because they are so damn expensive). Other than that, it's a reliable little pot and very easy to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, November 5, 2012
I purchased this item because I've been feeling more stress than normal lately. I've been taking one capsule a day at lunchtime, and so far I haven't had any major panic attacks. I don't know if it's the placebo effect or what, but I'll take it!

I think this vacuum was a good choice. I moved to an apartment that is 800 square feet and completely carpeted. This vacuum was very easy to put together. I've had it for over a month, and it picks up a ton of dirt. I have no trouble emptying the canister, and I haven't had any problems with the filter either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying Conclusion, May 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I just finished Blackout after staying up all night to read it. While not as good as Feed, Blackout is miles ahead of the mediocre offering of Deadline. The return of 97% cognate Georgia Mason is much needed and welcomed even though her scenes at the CDC are sometimes hard to wrap your brain around. There are some recurring problems throughout the trilogy that prevent me from giving Blackout five stars.

1. Repetition of details. I'm assuming this is a problem with the editor because I don't understand why some details were allowed to be repeated ad nauseam. Thankfully, Coke is only mentioned twenty times in this book (as opposed to at least fifty in Feed). However, we still get several mentions of Shaun's craziness and of Georgia's aversion to white walls.

2. Length. This book did not need to be 600+ pages. My mind started to wander a bit during Shaun and Becks road trip. Although a zombie bear is somewhat amusing, I felt like the book took too many unnecessary detours.

3. Rushed reunions and ending. The most disappointing thing about the book was that I wanted more one on one scenes with Georgia and her team, and I didn't get them. George and Mahir barely got to spar. Also, I was really looking forward to a showdown between George and Becks. The ending Becks did get was a bit too convenient and allowed for George and Shaun's unique relationship to go unchallenged.

All in all, still a pretty good read and a mostly satisfying last installment to this trilogy.

The plants were in great shape and my mother loved getting them as a gift. I would definitely use this seller again.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable sequel. Worth the wait!, June 5, 2011
I loved Feed, the first book of the series, because of the relationship between George and Shaun. I was a bit skeptical about Deadline because I wasn't sure how the narrative would work with Shaun being the main protagonist. Now that I've finished reading, I am in awe at how well Mira Grant was able to keep their relationship alive.

At times, the pacing of Deadline was a bit slow-going (I thought the same about Feed). The only reason I rated this four stars and not five is because I think Mira has a tendency to repeat details that don't really need mentioning so many times (e.g. how the blood testing kits work, how the other members of the team are reacting to Shaun's craziness, the decontamination procedure in the shower, Shaun's affinity for coffee, the description of Coke etc).

Overall though, this is a great "zombie" series, and I can't wait for the next book to come out.
