5.0 out of 5 stars The Man Booker committee nailed it :), February 17, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Holy cow what a ride. Super distinct voiced characters mixed into complex interwoven plot lines. Really eye opening even for someone alive during the time in which the story is set. Some mention having trouble understanding the island patois, but I found my brain quickly adapted and I really didn't notice it after a short period of reading. This book is unflinching in the face of some extremely violent events, and it is definitely not for the squeamish or faint of heart. However I found it to be a very rewarding and satisfying read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mitchell twist to the haunted house, February 17, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Short fun little novella and part of the David Mitchell meta-story. This was a nice little snack of a book, giving a Mitchell twist to the haunted house genre. What you will find is a clever story, great atmosphere, and interesting fleshed out characters. What you don't get is the depth of insight and complex character of the longer novels like The Bone Clocks or The Cloud Atlas. It leaves you hungering for his next full novel though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Room to move, even when layering!, February 17, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Sturdy and well constructed coat. Comfortable coat with the room to allow for a large range of motion and layering. The tightly woven cotton shell repels wind and light rain. For me, I'm comfortable wearing this coat in temperatures as low as the teens. I run a little hot though. This is an excellent bargain for a big guy.

Great for keeping my beard neat especially after applying beard oil or beard balm! Keeps skin stimulated under the beard too and helps avoid dandruff.

ACF Sleep Mask & Ear Plug Set - Premium Quality Eye Mask w/ Memory Foam
Offered by AMAZING CORE FITNESS
Price: $19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Works great, but best for medium small sized faces., February 17, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The mask is soft, pleasant agains the skin and really does black out all ambient light. Great for catching up on sleep in the day, or for those whose partner reads late into the night with a bed side lamp on. I'm a big guy and size-wise this just barely fits. The velcro strap is plenty long enough, but the contoured foam eye cups and nose bridge are spaced/sized in a way that is really meant for a smaller face. Forget about the included ear plugs though, they are brutally firm and there are much more comfortable disposable plus available if you need some quiet.

Its kind of cool experiencing the sensory deprivation when wearing. Sometimes I see colors in the total absence of light. :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to a specific word when needed, but OK for browsing-type self study, February 17, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is truly more of a vocabulary list by subject, rather than a dictionary. The translated equivalences seem Ok as far as it goes, but because of the thematic structure you really can't use this as a reference dictionary when you happen upon an unfamiliar word. For example, if you wanted to know the Danish word "rabbit", you can't just go to the "R" section alphabetically. Instead you have to think about what category the publish might have plopped the word into. If you thought the "animal" section you'd be wrong. The publisher actually places rabbit under the "food" section with its Danish equivalent "kanin" listed there. Not that its a problem listed as food, but a cross reference would be nice. As it is the category isn't always intuitive. The truly frustrating part is the themed sections aren't in a readily apparent order either. At best this is like a bunch of thematically sorted flash cards in book form. Confused? Yes so was I.

5.0 out of 5 stars A strong female hero!, February 17, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
All 3 of "His Dark Materials" in a single volume. Contains Northern Lights (aka the Golden Compass), the Subtle Knife, and the Amber Spyglass. These are challenging books of great ambition while delivering a fast paced story of high adventure. I loved Rowling's Harry Potter books, but the His Dark Materials is much more subversive, entertaining, and satisfying especially for an adult audience. Sensitive people with dogmatic traditional Christian world view may find the books upsetting, so caveat emptor. The protagonist Lyra may be one of the strongest most admirable true female heroes in literature. Loved it!

Good, tasty, high fiber, low fat, crunch and satisfying snack. Much healthier than corn nuts since these are not fried. The half pops are now my favorite savory snack!

5.0 out of 5 stars Foils attacking cats in the dark!, February 17, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Wow, Nest makes such a great product. Easy to install with clear instructions and excellent self tapping screws, Set up was a snap with the Nest app on my iPhone. I love getting notified on my phone as the system self tests itself monthly to ensure my family is protected. One of the great features is how it works in conjunction with a Nest thermostat if you have one. If the Nest protect detects a carbon monoxide problem, it will have the Nest thermostat shut off your furnace if necessary. A fun and unexpected feature is a subtle glow at night as the Nest protect senses you moving underneath in the dark. Just enough to light the way for night adapted eyes without blinding you. This feature can be disabled if you prefer, but I like it since it keeps the cat from ambushing me on nightly bathroom runs. It glows when he moves too eliminating the advantage of surprise pouncing.
