There were only two problems with this item. The first one is that it is not leather (no big deal) and that I can't seem to find it again. I would by 10 more if I could. I love the red!

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this Scent, April 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Item came quickly and in good condition.
After traveling with it, however, I noticed that some had spilled on my clothing.
I don't know if the bottle was defective (the packaging looked authentic), or if the cap had loosened in transit.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Certain That this is the Real Thing, April 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've bought cases for my phone in the past from the SPRINT store, and they fit perfectly. This one was did not snap on effortlessly, and the quality is definitely not as good as the store bought one. I also think that it is a little smaller, as the case does not close all the way shut. It was pretty cheap, and the color is fun, so I'll use it for Summer.
One more thing, item took a very long time to arrive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Item, November 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was very pleasantly surprised by this set.
The quality is good, a little sheer, but my white comforter and pillows inside of the duvet and shams really
popped the black and white design. You cannot beat the price. I was a little nervous because it was so inexpensive compared to other sets out there, but was really very happy once I put it on my bed.
Great item.

2.0 out of 5 stars If It Wasn't For The Book Club..., March 2, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Saving Agnes: A Novel (Paperback)
I became acquainted with this novel because it was chosen by my book club.
I am severly torn as to whether I should continue to read it, however, because I am finding it boring as hell. Yes, the writing is lovely, and was one of the first things that struck me when I began reading. I think that I am just bored to tears by people who do not like themselves or much else in their lives. I find it annoying. If it were not for my book club meeting in a week, I would surely chuck it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Beautiful, September 23, 2007
This review is from: Brother, I'm Dying (Hardcover)
So far, this is my favorite book by Danticat (I've read them all). It drew me in completely. And although I knew from the title that at least one life would be lost by the close of the book, I was unable to stop reading.I kept thinking that her father and uncle, not to mention the rest of her family must be very proud of her for writing such a beautiful eulogy. I also believe that the Haitian people who live with this suffering are also glad. Good work, Edwidge.

Meeting of the Waters: A Novel

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!, March 15, 2007
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Oddly enough, I read it while dealing with issues regarding interracial dating with a woman whom I've known for almost a decade and considered one of my best friends. She finds it disagreeable, I say, love is where you find it.

At any rate, this novel forced me to recognize aspects of what it truly means for some people to date outside of their race. It forced me to realize the truth about it, but also the absurdity: not the absurdity of loving someone who may not share the same heritage, but the lunacy of having to contend with it, and how it can make one insane with doubt. I know that it is a work of fiction, but I'm glad that Lee and Porter made it through. It confirms what James Baldwin and I believe: "Love is where you find it". Indeed.
