2.0 out of 5 stars Not the version played on radio in the 80s, March 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Belly of the Whale (MP3 Music)
After buying this MP3 I finally found the CD that had this song, Living in Oblivion: The 80s Greatest Hits Volume 4 (http://www.amazon.com/Living-Oblivion-Greatest-Hits-Vol/dp/B000002TOJ/ref=sr_1_4?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1394062813&sr=1-4&keywords=burning+sensations.) If you a.) have a few bucks burning a hole in your wallet, b.) still have a CD player or drive, and c.) and want the awesomely wonderful radio-play version of the song, that's the CD for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I had hoped, January 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The story had lots of promise but floundered under a vaguely annoying protagonist and too much cat action that did nothing to further the plot. It could be that I expected something close to Lillian Jackson Braun's style.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works great, smells less than pleasant, May 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If only we had the choice of 2.5 stars. The product works better than any other spray or powdered dry shampoo I've used. It doesn't leave a powdery residue on my hair and brushes out to a soft, shiny finish. The scent, however, is not good. In fact, it's kind of nasty which is surprising as one of my favorite things about Alterna products is the how nice they smell. I'm not sure if I would use it again, and I'm so glad I started with the mini instead of the full-size product.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enjoyable for me, March 28, 2011
Many of the other 1, 2 and 3 starred reviews here echo my disappointment with "Ghoulds Gone Wild." MJ's charm has worn thin, the plot featured far more violence and bloodshed than I expected from Ms. Laurie, the surrounding characters seemed flat, and I was quite bothered by the device of implied animal abuse. If you liked books 1 and 2 a whole bunch, you may not enjoy this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars It reeks, but feels good as long as you're not breathing whilst wearing it., November 22, 2010
It has a lovely feel to it, and the shape is ideal for my neck and shoulders. The heat lasts for about twenty minutes and is quite soothing. Alas, it smells like an experiment in herb mixing gone terribly, terribly wrong. The smell lingers long after the pillow has been put in a ziplock bag, and it's extraordinarily foul. A shame, too, as it feels great on my neck and shoulders.

3.0 out of 5 stars Two and a half stars, really, July 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The photos in this book are worth four stars, whereas the author's narrative style rates only one star. Or, in the style of the author: "The book, like many books, is populated by a plethora of period images; images that evoke a different time, a hungrier time, a black and white time; the words - and oh there are many! - flow like the sluggish fluids of a burnt up racing rear end; that is, they're muddied, thick and not very clear."

Although I recognize he is motor journalist of long standing, possibly his style is more suited to columns or magazine articles. In this medium, it doesn't capture my interest.

2.0 out of 5 stars Descriptions of movements difficult to follow., June 8, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm not a fitness fanatic -- I just want a stronger back and less neck and shoulder pain. This book is probably better for a reader already familiar with exercise terminology. It was difficult for me to follow the written descriptions of movements, and photos weren't comprehensive enough.

Hopefully others will have much better luck, or maybe aren't as dense as I am.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lights were DOA, April 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When these arrived, a couple were very feebly flashing. That ended within an hour. They are dead. Considering there is no option to replace the batteries, they are not only dead, they're useless.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware -- does not include flashing stems for goblets, April 9, 2010
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The goblets arrived with only the goblets -- no flashing LED stems. Since the goblets have a threaded hole in the bottom to accept (presumably) flashing LED stems, they are fairly useless on top of not flashing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good quality; excellent price, March 8, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The shoe rack was fairly easily assembled (necessary tool included!) and the quality of the materials and final item was much nicer than I had expected. For the money, it would be hard to find a nicer piece of organization furniture.
