These seem to work great. I broke one of the connectors trying to remove it, though, so maybe they're not all that durable? Maybe I did something wrong, though.

2.0 out of 5 stars fragile, May 3, 2016

Well, it is a pencil. It's chunky, ugly, and the lead breaks constantly. One of the pencils actually broke in half while I was using it. I cannot understand why other people seem to like these.

5.0 out of 5 stars The next "War And Peace", April 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: I, Slutbot (Paperback)
No, I haven't actually received my copy of this book, but yes it's clear that it will be the defining work of this generation, or rather of this century. Hansen's writing evokes Hemingway, Tolstoy and Shakespeare. A poignant and touching work that breaks down the dichotomy between man and machine, author and reader, sex object and appliance. Truly one for the ages. 11/10, I must really like it because I accidentally bought two copies.

1.0 out of 5 stars low-quality print-on-demand publisher, November 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Light of Asia (Paperback)
this is a really low-quality printing of this book. They seem to have pasted the publicly available text from somewhere like Project Gutenberg into a word processor, added a table of contents, and then run it through a print-on-demand machine. I think they're even using the default Times New Roman font. The image on the front cover is pixelated. It looks very unprofessional; I might as well have just printed it out myself on my laser printer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea, Poorly executed book, July 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I think Aron's idea of an HSP may be accurate, but the idea isn't big enough or detailed enough to justify the book. Aron fills the space by repeating herself.

I was hoping for more studies of actual people who have worked through disorders that come from having this temperment. Aron had very few examples of that - instead she alternates between descriptions of exceptionally happy people and exceptionally miserable ones, and her only idea about the difference between them is how good their mothers were. This is not helpful.

I can't make heads or tails of this book. I'm having trouble telling the characters apart, and I mostly have no idea what's going on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't underestimate this book, April 24, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Zazen (Paperback)
Somehow, this book is simultaneously a funny story about someone leaving an academic ivory tower to join an over-the-top hipster/hippie subculture, and an intensely emotional portrait of the unsettling feeling you get when you think too hard about whether our modern society is going to survive (and whether it should be allowed to.)
Veselka's voice (as the narrator Della) has a lyrical but gritty quality that makes everything seem both startling and familiar.
I'm having trouble capturing this in a review, but so if you're curious, try googling for the serialized version of the story that appeared in an online magazine, or for the youtube videos of the author reading excerpts.
