This well respected book is about Chinese history.
R. Viney from Cardiff gave it the following review:
3/5 - A break from the norm.
I very rarely write serious, impassioned, insightful and genuinely critical reviews on amazon, and I’m not about to start now.
This book is really silly.
Ah, the classic ruse. S/he set us all up for a break from the norm but then switcheroo’d it all up in our faces and totally screwed with our heads. How silly s/he has made us (me in particular) feel.
IMDB reviewer supreme, Bollywood_Bonertime, has gifted the world this beautiful review of Coriolanus:
“An awesome movie in Indian cinema, Graphics and robotics are well used without any mistakes. Mr.Fiennes worked really hard to act as Coriolanus, the hero of Rome, we can feel him as a great soldier in his body actions, In his age its really hard to bring the body language.
Fantastic story, a break for Director “Voldemorte” Fiennes, he got a new track, only in the climax court scene, we came to know its a Shankar movie (usually he include court scene in the climax and the court will release the hero from all his crimes) but other than its a most perfect movie in the UK cinema, hats of to Mr.Voldemorte for his hard work…..MUST WATCH MOVIE.”
Couldn’t have put it better myself.
An internet user going by the name of Whatever from a place called Radstock has contributed this review of the John Lewis SBRC016 Mini Rice Cooker, White:
1/5 - Rubbish Product
The ‘User Guide’ focused on mainly how to wire a plug, even though the product included a wired plug.
There were no recipes.
The scale on the inside of the black pan could just about be made out with the use of a torch; but what were the units?
Now then Whatever. Your review is rather confusing. Every other review gives this product 4 or 5 stars. I bought one myself today and would give it 5 stars. It is a brilliant piece of kit; simple to use and resulting in perfectly cooked rice. Every point that Whatever makes in his/her review is rubbish (the one exception being the scale’s visibility being a bit difficult to read, but definitely not impossible). The user guide is fine, there is no promise of recipes so why should this matter and the units on the scale are perfectly understandable (I assume most people can work out what ‘cup’ and ‘L’ mean WHEN THEY ARE WRITTEN ON THE FUCKING POT ITSELF ABOVE THE SCALE).
So Whatever has given a 1 star review to a product that is clearly a 4/5 star little trooper. I do hope people ignore this review.
The curse of the huge black panels.
Here we have a 2-star review of The Complete Superted Series 1-3 (DVD) by eevie on Amazon.co.uk:
“The episodes are great as I knew they would be but the quality isnt too great and it sits in the middle of the screen with 2 huge black panels either side, whether its the age of the programme or something else I dont know but it does take quite a bit of the enjoyment away”
2 huge black panels taking quite a bit of the enjoyment away? No! black panels! 2 of them! Noooooo!
Can someone help eevie enjoy Superted? Well a reply to eevie’s review may have a solution:
Stuart B. Shankland says:
“I don’t have this problem with my Copy Of This Release on the TV or DVD Player, so it must be your own fort, not the DVD’s fort for bad tuning.”
Although forts are irrelevant and I don’t quite know why Stu has mentioned them in his response, I think he may have solved this riddle for the ages. Well done Stuart B. Shankland. It was fort-unate that your skills with modern consumer electronics are so fine-tuned.

Thank you to @alexmcaleer for bringing this to my attention.
I had the same problem as Rachee when I bought a CD when I only had a record player. I couldn’t afford a CD player so I threw everything I owned in the canal.
I am at a loss for any other ideas. Can you help hetfield86?
Thanks to @Mewtopia for pointing us in the direction of this confused reviewer.

A 5 star review for ‘A Simples Life: The Life and Times of Aleksandr Orlov’.
Remember, this is a book about “the life” of a CGI meerkat that promotes a price comparison website.
“”After many week, they began to think something was probables wrong”….
Tongue firmly in meerkat cheek, this is a lovingly constructed 127 page homage to the life and times of the world’s most famous meerkat.
It’s filled with familiar and new images of Aleks’ life, written in his mangled mix of Hello-magazine speak and genuine Russian meerkat [sic].
It’s as fresh as a just-hatched grub and if it doesn’t make you, your kids and your family smile, you’ve probably had a humour transplant, or you harbour muskrat tendencies. Warning: (page 58): “…never play baccarat with a muskrat.”
Move over Clarkson, Gok Wan, Blair. Frankly, Aleksandr has just pipped you at the post for the Booker next year. Even the mighty Jamie Oliver is going to have to have bow down before the recipe for millipede goulash.
I reckon it deserves to sell more copies than the X-Factor winner.”
First things first, ‘D. Lundholm’, you don’t end a sentence with a comma. Secondly, it is mongooses not “mongeese”. Thirdly, the Booker is a prize for fiction writing and thus Blair et al’s offerings would not be in the running.
“Not a great duster, spent a lot of time hovering the bristles after polishing. Doesn’t look as full or fluffy like the picture.”
Like I always say, if a duster ain’t full, burn it.
