5.0 out of 5 stars So bad it's good, Feb. 21 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Irene Iddesleigh (Kindle Edition)
This book isn't getting 5 stars because it's a well-written literary classic. It's getting 5 stars because it such a bad book and so poorly written and dumbfounding that it becomes entertaining. Sample line

“He was tempted to invest in the polluted stocks of magnified extension, and when their banks seemed swollen with rotten gear, gathered too often from the winds of wilful wrong, how the misty dust blinded his sense of sight and drove him through the field of fashion and feeble effeminacy, which he once never meant to tread, landing him on the slippery rock of smutty touch, to wander into its hidden cavities of ancient fame, there to remain a blinded son of injustice and unparalleled wrong!”

So bad. So good. Don't pay for this book. Read the kindle version for free and be amused for a few hours. There is no other writer like Amanda Mckittrick Ros, and trust me that's a good thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little netbook, March 23 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this netbook before starting University. As much as I would have liked to buy a fancy, pricey computer it was out of my budget. This little netbook was a great price, and for what I needed it for (going online and writing) it does everything perfectly. I bought the basic version, but if you want more memory then I believe you can pay a bit more and upgrade. The battery life is pretty long lasting, but it all depends on what you're going to be using the computer for. If you're a hard-core gamer, then you'll want a different option. I liked how small and light this netbook is - easy enough to put in my backpack, or in a briefcase or large purse. A couple things I don't love about this netbook are that it only comes with a Windows 7 starter pack, so you can't do a lot of customization. There is also no CD drive (just be prepared) and the screen can be quite reflective. For the purpose of school this was a great netbook. It lasted about three years, and probably would have lasted longer if I hadn't accidentally dropped it while traveling. If you're looking for a simple and affordable netbook this is a nice option.
