The Blazing World: A Novel
The Blazing World: A Novel
Offered by Simon and Schuster Digital Sales Inc
Price: $13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning novel!, March 18, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Excellent novel that reads like non-fiction. Author's use of voices is remarkable. To say that it is about woman's empowerment vastly short changes this transcendent novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for a Junior Inkling!, January 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This was a gift for my 17-year-old niece who is also an Inkling fan. While she has tattered paperbacks of all four books, she was thrilled to have a nice,clean boxed set. Well-done, Amazon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Much improved, less expensive, and marvelous features., November 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I already owned an older model washlet and was seeking one with similar features for a second bath. While I thought the lid-raising and auto-flush features were A bit excessive, i wanted the other features. What I did not expect was the deodorizing feature. It is wonderful! This model is also smaller and has a more streamlined profile than my older model (that looks a bit clunky by comparison). And the remote is smaller, can be programmed for 2 users, and can be wall-mounted or tucked into a nearby drawer. This is a life-changing device for elderly or those of us with disabilities.
Note: with all the Washlets, you must have a GFI receptacle near the toilet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Riveting!, May 7, 2014
We came to this late, but when we did, we had to binge-watch so that we could get into Season 2. The writing, performances, settings are first-rate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilled to be able to buy it!, January 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cluedo Sherlock Edition (Toy)
I had been trying to purchase this in the US for a gift for at least three years. I even called the BBC store in London to order it, but because of some arcane regulation, they could not ship to the US. BBC America site didn't have it, either, nor did any of the PBS outlets. Just when I thought I would have to make a trip to London, I found it on Amazon! I was thrilled! The delivery time was projected to be 6 weeks, but that was okay. After all. I'd been at this a while. My delight increased when it arrived at my door within 10 days! Yay AMAZON! Thanks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product, with reservations., November 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is exactly what I needed as a committed composter. I was tired of the pail on the counter, and this sits flush with the granite countertop. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the price; it's way over the top; even my most expensive piece of high-end stainless cookware didn't cost this much.
For new construction and installation, I offer these cautions. First,: some stone fabricators lack the equipment to make the hole properly. Check with your fabricator before you commit. Mine had to be hand-chiseled, and while this was fine, it was labor-intensive. Second, make sure you have space under the counter. The can is deep and rests entirely below counter-level, so there must be "dead space"--no drawers.

2.0 out of 5 stars You may need tech support, and they are super!, November 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
While it works great, it is a bear to hook up. I use a UVerse box, a bluray player, an HD television, and all must integrate. It's a beast (optical cable, anyone? Never heard of it before). Once together, though, the sounds is wonderful--a real improvement over the tinny speakers of my Samsung TV. Samsung, are you listening?

5.0 out of 5 stars Well played, gentlemen!, November 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Funny, witty, biting and incisive satire. Exactly what I would suspect from Trudeau and Alter. Well played, gentlemen! Glad to see Clark Johnson on this side of the camera. We've missed him since "Homocide." Who knew he was so good at comedy? And I'm convinced that John Goodman can do anything! What a talent!

I was concerned about water pressure, but knowing Hansgrohe, I should not have been worried. This showerhead performs superbly! I am delighted with my purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars No more power converter!, May 26, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is something I've longed for; for years I've toted a heavy, brick-like power converter to Europe so that I could charge my Kindle. All my other gadgets just need the appropriate adaptor, but this one had been a problem. No longer! The adaptor is lightweight and takes up little space in my carry-on bag. I just don't know why I'd not thought of this before. And if I'm on the Continent, I can use a two-prong adaptor that I always carry with me.
