My daughter said she wanted some slime, so I compared a bunch of different options and this looked like the best value. Her eyes lit up when we opened the package and she refused to stop playing with it for about 2 hours! There slime is just the right consistency, a little bit thick so it is fun to squish and not sticky so its super easy to clean up. There are tons of things to mix in, form shapes and manipulate the slime with. The glow in the dark powder is definitely a favorite. You can add it to any of the many slimes to make them glow in the dark. We had a bunch of family over to visit and they couldnt stop talking about how cool the slime was and how great of a deal it was. Im very happy with this purchase and will be picking up a another kit for my daughters friends birthday next week! What a great slime kit. For starters- slime is already made! There is such an assortment of colors and add- ins kids will have fun creating their own unique slimes for days! The size is a little small- but enough to stretch and play with. The molds are fun shapes and really hold the shape well! Fun beads add good texture! Glitter made me cringe a little but actually didnt get all over their hands like I worried it would. The glow in the dark powder was a neat addition - wish the bag was like a ziplock so it can be closed after opened. I took the mold toys out of their bags and stored the glow in the dark powder in there since it sealed! Overall- kids love it! Ill be ordering kits for presents! Cant go wrong The colors are awesome. The packaging is fantastic and everything is neat and organized. I highly recommend this product. This box comes with a great assortment of colors and add ins! Very high quality slime and beautiful stuff to add in! Gems, foam, glow in the dark powder, glitter…my kids had a blast playing with it. Highly recommend. The box is brightly colored and lead to lots of excitement and anticipation as we open the packaging. The packets inside contain a wide variety of bead balls, glitter, and add-ins. There were no directions per-say as the slime is already pre-made in neat little plastic containers that you can store the slime in after you make your concoctions. There was enough for our four kids ages 5 to 10 to create and share. The glow powder was a nice feature. The glitter lids were very hard to remove and we had to use a scissor, but other than that, this is a fabulous set. Great gift idea for boys or girls. This slime is so much fun! My 2 and 4 year old love glow in the dark and this is the only kit I could find with that option. They absolutely loved every minute of it. The kit came with everything advertised and exceeded our expectations. Its so nice the add ins have resealable bags, which we havent found with other kits weve purchased. There is so much variety. The extra toys included are cute and extended the play time. We will definitely buy this one again. I dont normally write long reviews but I need to for this as its just a bad slime product. Its a weird texture to normal slime, its like more watery jelly and a little runny, hard to explain but its not like good. Our homemade slime is a much nicer texture and works better. The glitter lids are horrible and nearly impossible to get off, I had to break one of the tubes to actually get the glitter out, not for kids. Glow powder turned our slime a nasty green but didnt actually glow even with lights off. I am not sure what you are supposed to do with the little plastic lobsters and stuff we where both pretty confused by this. The packages for the add ins are tiny, the images on the listing make them look waaay bigger and they dont really fill up a slime. The containers, once youve added the add ins they are too small to put the slime back in so you need to find new containers. The is no information in the pack so you dont know whats in the product. I opened it and was impressed by all the stuff in the box. It has all sorts of accessories to add to the slime. I cant wait for my son to play with it. He loves slime! Hes very fidgety so this will help him put that energy to good creative use.

Notes from the Community

Could not believe it when I opened the box. These things are extremely small. Should have read others reviews before purchasing. Not much a kid can do with a container this small but mix it up with the other ones. This is just a marketing ploy by play dough. I can not believe that I wasted my money on this. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS you will regret it. Its play doh. The quality of the product is exactly what you would expect. My issue was with quantity. When I purchase this set I compared it to the 36 count case which Ive ordered previously. At the time, I was only saving a couple cents per container on the larger case from a cost per container standpoint. So I decided to purchase the smaller case to save space.These containers are only 2oz, an ounce smaller than the 3oz containers in 36ct case. So on a cost per ounce, the larger set ends up being the much better value. Its my mistake for not reading the product description details more closely, but it wouldve been nice if this was included in the product description line vs further down in the details.I will be ordering play doh again, but definitely not this set. I cant believe this has so many stars. For real? Terribly small containers. Honestly I dont know if they could get smaller. The size of these containers makes you think theyre samples more than a paid for product. Save your $8 and go to Wal-Mart and get a bigger tub for $.50/each. Better deal and at least you have something the kids can work with. I wish that I would have read the reviews but its play-doh so I didnt think I needed a review. These are party favor sizes. I am a teacher and I bought these for a class center and now I will have to make a second purchase because they are just WAY too tiny. I was tricked into thinking they were bigger because the price was comparable to the bigger size cans. Total ripoff for the size :( I, too, got tricked by my eyes when I ordered this set of Play-Doh. I, too, did not read the 2 ounce cans portion of the description. I just thought it was the regular sized cans of the good stuff I see at Wal-Mart for 88 cents and snatched it up especially since this set is listed as an Amazon best seller. Ill give the product three stars because the Play-Doh arrived nice and fresh and there was nothing wrong with it. So three stars because Its Okay but I will not give this buy four stars because I do NOT like it. Tricksters. I loved it when I was little, (still do!) my son loved it, now its my 3 year old grandsons favorite! The texture, the colors and even the smell brings back great memories.I purchased these specifically because they were the small cans. My grandson never had Play-doh before, I had no clue if he would even like it, so I figured wed start small. (What was I thinking?!) He LOVED it.For a toddler I prefer these smaller 2 oz. cans. Theyre the perfect size for little hands with just the perfect amount of Play-doh. I also like the portability of the smaller cans. I cant imagine handing a toddler 10 full size cans and just letting him have at it, with these you can do exactly that. I just purchased another 10 pk. because were finally running a little low after making dinosaurs and leaving them out to harden and then play with. :)Play-doh should be a part of every kids childhood! The only advantage of these is the quantity of different colors. I was disappointed in the container size. They are very small. I could have gotten full sized containers at Wal-Mart for 50 cents each and it would have been a better value. I might not have gotten 10 different colors, but that would not have mattered so much, as there was at least a good assortment. I didnt realize what a mess play doh was until I had kids of my own! Omg. I clean up hundreds of little beads of play doh for a half hour after every time we get it out and play with it. Some of you are probably saying to yourselves that Im doing it wrong and I would say youre probably right. I screw up more stuff than I get right as a parent and I am probably failing play doh. But the stuff is a ball. It was one of my favorite things to play with as a kid and every time my kids open a fresh can of it the smell brings me right back to my own childhood. And now I also picture my poor mother who l never realized at the time was probably cleaning hundreds of little play doh balls up after I got done with it and ran out to play! Its worth it, thou. Its still around, unchanged, for a reason. Its just good clean (except for the beads) fun!

I received the Fire TV Stick 4K on launch day. I own the previous model and this is a much better experience. First off the remote is a huge improvement. The power button on the remote can turn on my tv, my receiver, fire stick, and switch the inputs automatically so the fire stick is on screen and ready to go with just one click of the power button. Its really nice. This is how it should have been all along. It gets even better though… lets say my TV is already on, and my receiver is set to a different input such as my FIOS tv box? All you do is click the home button on the remote and the remote switches the receiver to the correct hdmi input on the receiver for the fire stick! One remote to rule them all, and yes it controls volume on the receiver too! This is excellent. Its highly configurable. The setup is quite nice. You can define which inputs get picked when hitting the power and home button. You can define which device the volume buttons control. Amazon has done a great job with the Fire Stick 4K.Its faster than previous fire sticks. No more menu lag. Things are smoother and faster overall. Ive used Roku, Chromecast Ultra and Fire Stick… I like them all for different reasons. I also dislike chromecast because 5.1 audio will not work on my receiver because chromecast refuses to support Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1. Fire stick has no problem handling DD5.1. This makes my plex and netflix experience much more enjoyable. The remote is better than not having a remote (chromecast). Rokus are very nice as well. All 3 of these options are great in their own way and frankly I had thought fire stick was the least desirable but recently Ive come to realize I prefer Fire stick so I pre-ordered the 4K fire stick and I could not be happier with it. Amazon needs to keep up the good work. The 4K stick is a solid product and an excellent upgrade from the previous model Let me tell you, I was super excited for the launch of the new FireTV Stick with its leading edge technology and processing power. Well, its got that but theres a couple bug, game breaking problems I have with this thing.1) The Amazon platform is basically retooled Android, which is a crap interface. Its cluttered, redundant, and Amazon being Amazon wants you to use all their services over everyone elses so not only does their menu get in the way but the top third of the home screen is promotions for whatever they want to push.2) Also because its Amazon they want you to use THEIR streaming services to rent movies so much so that there is no Vudu or Google Play app available to install. If Prime Video had a decent selection of rentals (it doesnt) or a halfway usable interface (it doesnt) I would have less of a problem.3) Our FireTV Stick has issues with flickering and sound dropout. Tech support immediately supplied a series of less than helpful troubleshooting tips. Did you try a different TV? Did you try a different HDMI port? Despite my Roku working just fine. I elected to return this since I was already fed up with the closed interface and terrible menus.Slightly less of an issue but still annoying is the inability to completely turn off HDR. Its either always on or adaptive meaning the content dictates HDR which is a problem especially with Netflix (which is calibrated too dark on some TVs)For now Im happier with my Roku Stick despite less robust HDR support.Edit: updated my review for the following:- Amazon reached out immediately after my review to get additional feedback and to offer more support. That actually means something these days. Ill continue to monitor for problems- I upgraded to a new TV and this makes the HDR issue better since it actually looks good on this TV. Problem still stands of not being able to disable HDR entirely if needed- The smart controls feature is nice. I can use Alexa to change TV inputs now.- Less flickering on new tv but still have sound dropoutsHowever my issue with not having a way to watch VUDU/UV movies is a huge issue. On top is that, MoviesAnywhere doesnt tell you which movies were transferred over in 4K. So while the titles may sync, in cases of certain films (eg Deadpool 2) you only get the HD version and not the UHD/HDR one you paid for. Until this is fixed Ill leave my review at 3 stars. Our main streaming service is DirecTV Now, and this stick doesnt run it right. The app seems to works and then just freezes. When I go to run a speed test, the connection is super low, and then ramps up over time back up to full speed. Its as though the app crashes the stick. Other things seem to work fine, but not the app we use the most. Will return and continue to use gen 2 and gen 3 devices. Too bad.UPDATE: So, I deleted DirecTV Now and did a fresh install. For the past three days, things actually worked well and considered revising my rating. Then I tried to watch a little Sunday football. CBS froze over and over again and caused the app to continually crash. Thought maybe it was the local CBS stream because other channels worked fine. Then I tried the Roku I have in my kids room, DirecTV Now worked fine. Figured Id give it another go for the second game, same result. Watched Rams/Seahawks in my kids room with no issue on the Roku device. Again, other apps seem to work fine (I think) on Fire, but this stick isnt right just yet. Id wait for problems to work itself out.

Although there are already 9,000 plus reviews and no one will ever read this, I think its worth noting how easy it is to setup the remote to power on not only the television but accessories as well. Remember those code books from days gone by where you had to enter a number of codes to get a remote to work with a receiver, or a sound bar? This thing does the work for you. It EASILY sets up to work both my TV and my SOUND BAR. The fact that my TV is one brand and my sound bar is another is no problem. I love not having to fish for 3 different remote controls whenever I want to watch Amazon Prime or Netflix. WARNING! I didnt realize that when you buy any Amazon device like this one (or a tablet, etc) it comes preloaded with your info. Thats great.But if you gift it to someone else it has all your info, and they can buy & install apps, make in app purchases and so on. You then have to rely on them to figure out how to switch it to their Amazon account…if they even have one.EASY FIX. I guess I just needed to mark the This is a gift or the This order contains a gift box available on the Cart page. High speed internet, wi-fi, etc., did not get to my neck of the woods until very recently so my experience with these devices was limited. The first was chrome cast which was good except I had to bring the laptop into the living room (I dont care to watch on a small screen) to be able to cast to the TV. I know, a not a real big problem, but still awkward. Also, it was a bit tricky for me to set up. I finally took the plunge and purchased the fire stick. I have read some reviews that are quite technical and way above my pay grade. I will keep this simple. The fire stick has been very, very, good for me. Set up was a snap. I dont have a smart TV, just a fairly new, cheap, HD. The picture is great and so is the sound. If there are technical glitches I havent noticed them. I still need practice negotiating the screens, but that will come with time. I am getting used to talking to a machine, but still say please when addressing Alexa. I have already spent a couple of snow days catching up on two seasons of The Blacklist and have almost gotten through Bosch . I still havent had time for the movies. There is so much available it boggles the mind. I guess all of this identifies me as an old person. Well, I certainly am and for me the fire stick is the best thing to come along since the VCR. I would highly recommend it for my fellow oldies who may be a bit leery about trying something out of their comfort zone. This isnt a review, but it is more of a statement… I just got my firestick a week ago and so far I am so unhappy with it. the setup and everything went fine its just that on many of the movies I choose I have audio but no video, another issue is many of the basic channels that I thought were basic like lifetime and CBS and certain other ones I have to pay for to see. I thought they were many more free channels. Another thing, is the buffering. Most everything that I have tried to watch just keeps buffering and I can watch the same movie on my phone or my tablet which is the same Wi-Fi connection that I use for my TV and I can watch the whole movie before I can see anything on my TV. Im about to send this back I dont understand what the big deal is with this item. and I tried to get local channels I can only get one local channel and then I cant even see it live. It just shows me what the latest headlines were on that news show. Please tell me something I dont know or that it will get better somehow. I dislike the fact that I had to pry the remote open with a pair of my scissors. I wish there was a simpler way to open it. Maybe I did not possess the strength to push it open. Also my firestick restarts itself randomly. Support helped me and I thought it fixed it but it did not. Its overheating!! Ive had these issues before but not straight out the box. Really upsetting. We owned the initial firestick and had used it regularly for years. A remote issue forced us to replace the unit, and Im so glad we did! The responsiveness and speed of the new version is amazing! No more lagging or double click. The new remote is also a huge upgrade with the voice control option. Its a must have! This is an upgrade from my original firestick. The installation was so easy, Amazon is really good with their step by step instructions. It works perfectly but the thing I like even more than the voice control is the size of the remote. That original remote was ridiculously small and easy to loose.

Notes from the Community

I never used this product. I unboxed it and then downloaded the app & read the user agreement and absolutely cannot consent to the terms. Please read and understand the clause about subrogation claims BEFORE you use this product. It puts the user at admittedly unlikely, but very real legal and financial jeopardy in the event of the product failing in such a manner that harm is caused- for example the cord catching fire. USER is repsonsible for all legal fees or fines/claims against the product EVEN if the product was at fault! For me, being someone who just lost a home in a fire with a product that is being pursued under subrogation by my insurance company there is NO WAY I would consent to this!! ip address in CHINA. Being spied on. BEWARE I returned the camera, also read other reviews for the same issue. I love this WYZE camera! This is the 6th one I have purchased! For the price, you cant do better. I have this camera mounted outside, I purchased the little house available here on Amazon, and so far so good! I have a great view of my driveway! I already have two other WYZE cameras outside, one protecting my front door and one protecting the back door, and they work great during the day or night. I have had those outside since Frb and they have survived cold, snow, and rain. I dont use the alerts, so I cant comment on them. I record directly to SD cards. The picture is clear and the app is useful. I also have three Amazon Cloud Cameras too, which I also love, however I have to say, these WYZE cameras have more features, recording to an SD card for one, then the Cloud cameras have. Plus these WYZE cameras are a quarter of the price! I have one camera pointing outside through my living room window. I have to turn off the night vision due to reflection, however i get a great view! I wish I could think of more places I need to monitor, I would buy more WYZE cameras! I want to begin by saying that I have been very interested in owning security cameras in my home, but Ive never wanted to spend a bunch of money on it. I heard about this camera through a tech news article and I thought that I would give it a shot. After all, a $30 1080p security camera with some free cloud storage just seemed to good to be true.What I like:Picture quality is very good and setup was easy. Priced very well too!Each camera comes with a metal plate and some sticky tape which allows you to put this on any flat surface. This is nice since the camera has a magnet on the bottom of the stand.Updates come out regularly to fix bugs. Hope that continues for many years to come!The two way audio quality is actually pretty good! Talking to someone is kind of a pain though. Speaking of that…What I dont like:To have your voice protrude through a camera, you have to open the camera on the app and press and hold the mic icon. To hear the other person though, you have to unmute the camera. Seems sensible so far right? Well every time you tap that mic icon, the camera mutes itself again. Kinda pointless to advertise two way audio if the person on the app has to constantly unmute the camera in order to hear the person on the camera trying to talk to them. Not sure why it wont stick to the setting I choose.The recorded alerts are too short. For instance, I have a camera setup in my garage to start recording after it detects sound or motion. Whenever the garage door is opening, I get alerted and the camera starts recording. However, the recording lasts just long enough to see the garage door open and nothing else as recordings are between 9-12 seconds long. There appears to be a cooldown between each alert too. I say this because I dont get another alert in the time it takes me to park the car, close the garage door, get out of the car, and walk across the camera to get into my home. Having a microSD to continuously record everything would circumvent this, but having the ability to have recorded alerts be 30 seconds could avoid this whole issue.You can now setup times as to when the camera will send you alerts, but unfortunately these options are just limited to time of day and do not include day of the week. So if you were hoping to set it up to alert you Monday through Friday between the times of 7am and 4pm, you couldnt. This will always alert you every day of the week between your specified times.This is a small complaint, but the app saves an image of the thumbnail for each camera directly on my phone. Id prefer the thumbnails to stay on the app itself and not saved in its own folder in my pictures. This also goes for my avatar picture on the app.Summary:This is a fantastic security camera for the money. Most of my problems are software related and (hopefully) will be fixed soon. I look forward to updating my review after they get some more options added and address some of the issues that I mentioned above.Update: 1/3/18Both of my cameras frequently disconnect and require power cycles in order to get them to work. They may work for a few hours or a day if I am lucky. Also alarm notifications are not coming up until I open the app making the alerts almost worthless. Ill wait again for an update, but Im kinda losing hope here.Update: 2/20/2018They pushed out an update to help fix the frequent disconnects that I was experiencing, but now only one camera seems to work consistently at a time. (This is in regards to live streaming) What happens is I always seem to have one camera fail at random while the other one continues to work fine. As soon as I power cycle the camera that isnt working, the other one goes down in about a day and I cannot connect to it anymore. If I power cycle that one, then other one goes down. This has been going on since my last update and I now only power cycle them if Wyze pushes out an update as it gets old having to power cycle them every other day. I still get notifications on the one that happens to be down, so its just the live streaming that doesnt work.Speaking of notifications, if you are on an Android device and are not receiving notifications from the app, try disabling any battery optimization settings (i.e. Doze) that are interacting with the app. Disabling that should make the notifications come up again. My phone recently updated to have the Doze feature in Android 8.0 and disabling those settings seems to have made those work again. The camera video quality is definitely good, but there is no privacy… Since there is no way to use the camera locally without their app and just using a regular app like ip cam viewer that simply uses RTSP, I ended up putting an SD card on it and disabling its internet access by assigning an IP that is restricted by my router…Well, to my surprise, the camera is CHINESE intelligent and decided to change its macaddress to a new one (completely different from the one in the back label) in order to gain a new IP from my router and regain internet access.Definitely not a safe cam for indoors…(I should appear as a verified purchase… Although I bought the item directly from wyze I used amazon payments to pay for it). Not sure about how secure it is. They say they utilize a 3rd party called ThroughTek (offices in china and japan - none in US) to handle the transfer of videos. Wyze Cam claims the content is sent securely to aws. Examining the network traffic from camera shows that content is routed thru many providers including AWS, Linode (US) Vultr/Choopa (europe) and Aliyum/Alibaba (china). They seem to also utilize NTP server in Russia. To get more details.. search on web for WyzeCam sending data to servers other than AWS and you will find a Reddit article. How does Wyze ensure that ThroughTek is not eavesdropping?For me to trust Wyze Cam, I need to have clear control over end to end encryption of my data to ensure no 3rd party has any way of accessing my videos. Why cant the data be sent directly from my cam to AWS (s3 bucket)? Why can I not have access to AWS logs (s3 logs) to review which other IP address has accessed (or attempted to access) my content? Just claiming that this is a secure solution, doesnt work for me.Other than this security concern that I have, the end user experience is great for the camera in other respects. Of course the price is super good.


Fujifilm Instax Mini Instant Film Value Pack - (60 Total Pictures)(Package may vary)

Description

Style:Value Film Pack Share 60 original photos with Fujifilms instax mini film 60 exposure value pack. Fujifilms best mini film value. High-gloss provides top-quality finish

Notes from the Community

Better off buying at Costco or Target. Arrived as three cellophane bound packs of ostensibly Chinese origin (all writing on pack was Chinese and web address on pack was .cn) Fuji 2x10 packs, not the package pictured.First package I tried to use would not eject plastic cover and entire pack of film had to be forcibly removed from camera and thus over exposed remaining film. This wasted $12 worth of film and could have destroyed my camera. Rediculous.This film is sold at local retailers at a cost of about $1 more per unit or, as I now know, at an equivalent price for the product actually pictured at CostCo.Dont waste your money here. Very, very happy with Instax Mini film and the Mini 90 camera. A serious photographer for 25 years, no other genre or format has given me so much pleasure. Results are instant and fun. I love the new polaroid I got for Christmas from my parents! As far as this pack of films goes: The first set of 10 images turned out great, I loved them all. But then the second set of 10 I opened up they all printed completely black, I was seriously disappointed by this. I hope the rest of my prints turn out well.UPDATE:I bought the Fujifilm Mini Film Value Pack with 60 prints from Amazon. So far I have used 5/6 packages included in the box. And so far Ive been very disappointed. 34 of the 50 prints I have tried turned out completely black. Only 16 of my prints have worked so far. After the two that turned out black, I completely read the instructions so I know that I am doing everything right. I dont know if Im taking the pictures wrong but Ive very clearly read the instructions and even went as far as to use a measuring tape to make sure my distance is correct, but Ive taken 12 pictures and theyve all come out black. And in various settings and room temperatures. I had the issue with the first film I bought from walmart, but once I figured out how to take the pictures they worked. Im doing the exact same thing and STILL getting black pictures. I was only trying to shop through Amazon because it was a bit cheaper and this isnt even expired film.Edit: Turns out, after walking around my house about a thousand times I was FINALLY getting pictures, but I wasted many films already. It needs to be RIDICULOUSLY bright in the house for it to not develop black pictures, even though I know I was in stupidly bright rooms. Regardless, its still cheaper than Walmart and Ill get it faster. Ill be buying again. Ive bought a couple of these 60ct family boxes and Im never going back. As somebody who kind of consistently uses their instant camera pretty frequently its nice to have multiple packs at home with out having to run to the store every 20 shots. Also if you do the math, this is one of the best deals in instax mini film that you will find around. Now I just have to wait for these to be back in stock to order even more. I love these little pictures. All of mine have worked and developed. If anything is wrong with the pictures, as in under/overexposed, its usually my fault because I forget to pick the correct setting! Remember that you cant squeeze the film pack, open the camera when theres a pack of film inside, shake the pictures, or expose them to direct sunlight. If all of that is avoided (and you pick the correct setting) pictures will come out well with a vintage look. I liked that it was cheaper to buy 6 packs at $34.However, when I used one of 6 packs, three of 10 films were defective. They came out with black.I hope remaining 5 packs are not defective so I wont be disappointed Sum up of the review_ works great. I would recommend this.Full review- None of them were expired or anything and the picture came out great. This film is probably the cheapest film you can buy for the instax mini. When you input the film box into the camera you have to be sure you do it right or you will mess up your camera. This film came on time and was not tampered with at all. The pictures come out so great. I wouldnt buy any other brand of film if i were you becuase this is manufactured by the same company that the camera are made of. When you put in the film box into the instax mini camera remember to read the instructions before you do so because you ca end up exposing it to sunlight or putting the film box into the instax mini camera wrong causing the camera to mabye get damaged. When you have imputed the film box the first picture take is just a black film box sample thats why when you put in the film box it says s which stands for sample an a soon as you take a picture and get rid of the sample it will say 10 in the little circle which is how many films you have left. When you are imputing the film box be sure not to touch or press to hard again the parts of the film box. I would recommend buying these in bigger packages because you will get more and in the long run you will save more money. […]I f you have any questions feel free to ask!

Only good as a toy in close by propertiesIf your internet goes down then back up as it always sometime does in New York City or State the camera will sometimes not reconnect to your WiFi network as it has happened with 3/4 cameras .Since the camera is not responding to either WiFi or LTE your only option is to manually unplug it then plug it in againThis would solve the issue but what happens when you are a 1000 miles away ?Until Wyze ( like Nest does ) codes the software so that the camera reboots itself when attempting to re- connect these cameras are just a gimmick to watch your cat .I am not the only one having same issue as I got numerous emails from forumYou can try to fix by having WiFi AC plugs turning on Pandora off but not reliable This little camera is VERY impressive. I currently own a Nest IQ indoor camera and have owned a couple Foscam indoor cameras in the past. This Wyze camera produces excellent picture quality and has a very easy to use app. The fact that you get 14 days of clips storage for free just blows the Nest cam out of the water.This camera does so much that the 10x more expensive Nest Cam IQ at a fraction of the price.So how does this stack up against the much more expensive Nest Cam IQ indoor camera? You dont get continuous recording stored online, you only get clips stored online. However, you can pop a $10 32GB microSD card into this Wyze camera and get continuous local recording (meaning its being recorded on the card in the device). You can view your recordings in the app. At HD quality, you get a couple days storage on a 32GB card, more if you go SD quality.You dont get the ability to turn the camera on/off based on whether or not you are home. Personally, I really like this feature so it isnt recording us when were home. Just feels weird. Wyze support says they may add this via IFTTT in the future. You can control whether or not motion recording is on when you are home using IFTTT. However, Ive found it a little buggy.You dont get the Nest IQ facial recognition which is very high tech. Im not sure how important this is for an indoor camera. Its amazing for the Nest Hello doorbell.You dont get a monthly fee with the Wyze cam. You pay a fee for the Nest Cam IQ.I cant believe this thing is so cheap and works so well. It has so many features like the big guys. Even the two-way audio is decent. If I had one complaint, its that the motor that rotates the camera is a little loud. Im still giving this 5 stars. I guess its sensitivity to sound is a little high too.It seems like its too good to be true. If you are looking for an indoor security camera, you found it.TIP: I am using this SD card in the camera and its working fine. Inexpensive and does the job if you want local recording - . Silicon Power-32GB High Speed MicroSD Card with Adapter - New EditionNOTE: In the video, I have the camera attached to a mini-tripod. The camera has a standard screw mount for a tripod. You can get a little tripod for around $10. I like it because it raises the camera a bit and provides some extra stability, decreasing the chance it can be knocked over.----- 07/2019 HERE ARE SOME ANSWERS TO COMMENTS PEOPLE HAVE LEFT BELOW ----- Yes, it will continue to do its cloud recording when you have an SD card installed. There is an events tab on the main page of the app for the clips. You can also open a specific camera and tap view playback to see the continuous recording. When viewing on the SD card, there is a delay as it loads up the video. For example, you scroll the time line back 8 hours then there is a 3-4 second delay as it loads the chunk of video around that time. Once it loads, you can move back and forth in it instantly.- I am going to say my 32GB card is getting a little over 3 days recording in a room with only light activity. I cant speak to how that time grows as you increase the size of the card. Im not sure if 64GB would get you 6 days. Seems like it would though.- To the person that thinks the app is useless, Im sorry to hear you are having such troubles. I think the app works well on my Android phone (I dont know about iOS). However, I do believe that those kinds of things can happen. Its not a perfect app and they are adding features which can introduce bugs. Considering the cost of this camera, the app is phenomenal but some people are going to have problems. Hard to predict.- The other app question about it being efficient - yes, it works much better than those other cheap camera app. There is about a 2-3 second delay before it brings up live video. Im not experiencing freezing. However, that is heavily dependent on the network in your home and the network you are using on your phone when you access it (e.g. mobile, slow WiFi, etc.).- Im not sure about the comment about not auto-rebooting when you lose WiFi? Ill say that the cameras survive power failures perfectly. We just had a three hour one last night. Booted right back up. I have reset my network periodically which causes my WiFi to go down for about a minute and the cameras come right back online.Im still using this one and the regular Wyze cam. I still think these are SHOCKINGLY good values. I feel like I wasted so much money on my Nest cam. I should sell it and buy 5-6 Wyze cams. Im a bit of a camera addict. I have hardwired (fixed) cameras that are hooked up to a DVR, and I have 4 Nest cams as well. But we have a lot of pets, and I wanted to have some PTZ cams to be able to look around and check on them when we are away. I heard several tech podcasts (TWiT, Stacey on IoT) ranting and raving over this Wyze cam, so I took the plunge on one. WOW, how amazing to get all this, for $30 (plus shipping)! The image is super-clear, and I LOVE the ability to scan around a room via my phone. I even installed the Wyze app onto my Pixelbook, and when I enlarge the image on my big screen, it looks incredible. I have only had the camera hooked up for a day, and I am still learning the ropes, but I am SO pleased, I am going to order another two, if not three cameras right away!The motion detection feature is pretty slick. I set up the camera in our spare bedroom, where some of our cats hang out, and when Barbie came in, the camera detected her and began following her movements. She was intrigued at the noise (noticeable, but not loud, btw) of the camera whirring, turning. I have attached a screenshot I grabbed via the app, where she is examining the Wyze cam! Highly recommended. I am a fan of wyzecam but this wyzecam Pan is disappointing. Both motion tagging and motion tracking doesnt work even after firmware update. The cam for no reason sometimes just freezes up. I have to power off and on by removing the micro usb cable in order to get it working again. I tried to return it but the return time was over. I am so disappointed and I will never advise others to buy this model base in my experience. How I wish it works as advertised. The bug or whatever it is should be fixed and if it is this unit that is defective I feel I deserve a replacement unit from Wyze. The other units (3) of wyzecam v2 i have is much better in performance. They work great even in my echoshow.UPDATES!Wyze reached out to me and changed the unit. It was on the second attempt that I got a perfectly functioning wyze cam pan.Despite better functionalities than the wyze cam, I feel the wyze cam pan MUST be tested before shipping. To avoid the pains I went through.If you get a fully functional wyze cam pan then you will love it. I have given a 4 star now.

Notes from the Community

I purchased two of these cards almost exactly 4 months ago, in preparation for some fall releases. Ive bought a lot of digital cash cards for PSN from Amazon, its an easy way to use credit or to tuck something away to save for later, when I KNOW I want a game.I used one code early September and was prepared to use one the day before Red Dead Redemption 2 came out. Unfortunately, it did not deposit the $60 into my account. Instead, I get this error from Sony. The code you entered is inactive. Please check terms and conditions. I try multiple browsers, multiple devices.I contact Amazon and Im told its not their problem, its on Sony. I contact Sony, send them the code itself and the purchase information. 2 days later, I hear back. Its not their problem, its the retailers. I contact Amazon again and get told that I can no longer get a refund, they cant do anything and how would $3 in credit make me feel?Dont buy digital codes from Amazon. I was unaware there was a ticking clock on it, I was given no indication that I would have to use in X amount of time and now Im out $60 and Amazon will do nothing.DONT BUY DIGITAL CODES FROM AMAZON. You never know when they just might not work and youre screwed out of your money. Amazon wants to know what I think about this item, a digital code for $10 of credit on the Playstation Store. Theres almost nothing that I could tell you about this that you dont already know if youre actually looking for Playstation Store credit. You buy this item, and a minute or two later you can find the code in your digital codes section on Amazon along with instructions to redeem it and a link to go right to the redeem page with the code pasted in for you in case youre too impatient to read.The codes have always worked for me and theyve been delivered in seconds, which is more than I can say for Sonys own built-in payment methods which like to lock you out arbitrarily. Well, except when someone steals your account then suddenly Sonys got no problem draining the daily maximum of $150 from your bank account or credit line. Which is why you should get these cards instead of putting in money directly through a payment method on Sonys site, because nobody can steal money if you dont have a method of getting it from you. The best a thief can do if all you have is store credit is use your store credit to buy a small amount and theyll probably just go on because its not even worth the time. Where on the other hand if they get $150 they can buy in game items and trade to another account and sell them for money.Advantages:Codes can be given to someone else as a giftDelivered nearly instantly and easy to log in and apply the codeCredit in your account instead of a payment method means theft is more difficultAll the old codes are in your Amazon account so you can look back on how much money you wasted (wait, maybe thats a disadvantage)When you buy digital, a Gamestop executive weepsDisadvantages:Not a physical card so if you want to make a physical gift out of it, do it yourselfCredit in your account is never the amount you need exactly so theres leftovers you may not use for a whileMost games now charge tax so you wont actually be able to get a $10 game with a $10 card, you need a smidge moreOnce in a while they run out of codes and they take their sweet time getting more in, which stinks if you want a game right nowAmazon will send you emails asking what you think about digital gift cards and suggesting more digital gift cards for your collection, since youre obviously a connoisseur of letters and numbersWhen you buy digital, a Gamestop executive weeps This should be a professional service, if youre out of stock on digital codes, youre required to get them back as soon as possible. Their are way… too many people who depend or could afford a $10 or a $20 Playstation Store Gift Card. Please stop using strategies to force customers to purchase your more expensive cards. Id post an update if i get a reply from the relevant seller. I usually buy the 10$ code for everything… running out of codes and not stock it back is a great way to show how less they care about the customers who depend on this value codes. Ive been waiting for about a month to buy a code and nothing El tiempo de llegada del código es inmediato I cannot believe you dont have any supply. Very disappointed with this policy fast easy poor n broke due to fortnite i cant stop nor get rid of 2 months spent $3,000 on in game skins so on i still have no friends to plat with online ps4 i may sadly cut my loss on wasted cash just blew $125 thus far in a day 11/9/18 for the football complete teams ugh!!! online gaming hate it fortnite is a disease that got me i must sadly stop it buy my normal games leave this to the fortnite pc famous paid!!! gamers for twitch n tournaments SAD i spent/spending so much on the free game but every 24 hours new skins are posted emote dances ugh wish i could figure to sell my fortnite account get some money back it destroyed my life literally 3 friends broke up 1 divorced over the game!!! all my ps cards were are for the game lol then paypal was connected to it on ps4 n i cant buy what i want new games out due to money pit fortnite just cos cool skins to buy! unique ones nov. 13th deep freeze rare skin set comes out now too ugh!!! I had to bougt this because the other amounts werent available. I know is better for your and PlayStation Network benefits. But it is not fair.

Notes from the Community

Tried to buy a digital code because I was being lazy and didnt wanna drive to the store and back for a gift card to add money to my Xbox account. Big mistake. Took longer to verify the purchase than it wouldve to just go buy a card. Then trying to redeem the code it started a whole new set of problems. Following the link to redeem took me to microsoft and update profile pages and adding information (which is already on the account) and now my Xbox account cant add codes from the website or the Xbox. Now I gotta deal with customer service and more annoying crap. Lesson learned. Dont buy digital cards from amazon its a pain in the ass. Just buy the prepaid cards at the store Worked perfectly…Within a few minutes after checkout, I received the code-(which is typically located on the back of the card when purchasing this at the store), added it to my account & it was able to be used right away with no problems. Personally, this saved me a lot of time & hassle as I live in a rural area & purchasing the digital code on Amazon allowed me to skip the drive, wait in line etc. Now that I see how effortless this was compared to buying the card at the store, I intend to purchase the digital codes from now on. Perfect transaction start to finish!! Highly recommend! Happy customer! Bought this as way as a alternative to going to the store.Bought it for my little brother sent him the code, he put it on his account and it showed on there as the picture above then he purchased a 4.99 item off fortnite as it shows also in the first picture. Thinking he had about 10 dollars left he went to buy something else but was found with a balance of 1 dollar and some change. Im not sure if Microsoft didnt allow the full amount into his account or they just charged for something else that he didnt know about. But Im the end this scammed me out of 10 dollars. I bought a card and it worked fine. About 2 weeks later I ordered another but the code didnt work. I talked to Microsoft support a little but quickly realized that the order simply hadnt been processed yet so the new code didnt yet arrive. If your code doesnt work, try waiting a minute then refreshing the page (if youve purchased one before). So much easier than running out for gift card. I dont want my credit card on the live account bc the kids can order whatever they want if I do This worked great.. I had never bought 1 online before and was giving it to someone in another state. GLAD TO SEE THIS IS AN OPTION FOR ME TO SEND THINGS TO THE GRAND CHILDREN THAT THEY WILL LIKE.**I have bought this 3 times in the last week for my grand children, so easy to buy and just send them the code. No waiting for the mailman to bring it**** I love the ease and quickness of purchasing the digital Xbox gift cards instead of having to go to the store and waiting in line to buy a plastic card that does the exact same thing as its digital counterpart. Save yourself some time and gas, just buy your gift cards here on Amazon and get access to the funds instantly. The future is here people, take advantage of it! Bought this for my cousin who lives across the country. Process was very easy, I completed the order on Amazon then less then 2 minutes later I was emailed the gift card code which I just forwarded to my cousins email address. He was able to redeem the code on his Xbox One to buy a new game.

Notes from the Community

and where am I going? These are the questions, among others, that are answered in the much hyped sequel to The Handmaids Tale, by Margaret Atwood.For the first eight chapters, The Testaments is a bit labored. Details are laid out almost like a narrative catalogue. Chapter 8 marks the beginning of Atwood magic and for almost 300 pages, youre drawn into a first person accounting of the events of the past, (during Handmaids)the intervening years and the present days of Lydia. This portion of the book is pure gold and 5worthyAt chapter 20, the 1st person POV continues but is now voiced by Nicole and takes on a snarky tone. Maybe I just developed an affinity for Lydia? Whatever the case, the action for these next 90 pages is kicked up a few notches and the book ends with what seems like resolution. The overall writing in this section is not as engaging as the Lydia section, imo.This installment of Atwoods doesnt require warnings that are as strong as the first one. Violence is not an issue and there is only one very brief sexual encounter with very little description attached. There are references to the duties of a handmaid, but they are fairly obtuse. Language is the only issue that some folks will have a problem with. There are 3-4 f-bombs and a smattering of other expletives 2.5/10 used for literary accent, not gratuitously.Closing out this volume are the historical notes to the 13th symposium. This is a presented as a list of references and narrative to a symposium board by way of evidence/proof to substantiate the document which is The Testsments📚 The Testaments is set 15 years after the Handmades Tale. The story unfolds in a three-part narrative. Each narrator fills in the gaps of what went on in the preceding 15 years and chronicles their lives in the present. Readers will be updated on their favorite characters and introduced new players in the Gilead saga.The book is an absolute page turner from page one. The prose are beautifully written in a style that readers of Atwoods work have come to expect. Be prepared to put everything aside as you will not be able to put the book down.Hopefully The Testaments will give Hulu a framework for the rest of the handmaids tale series. Testaments is the long-awaited sequel to The Handmaids Tale first a bestselling novel by distinguished Canadian author Margaret Atwood and then a wildly successful series based on the book on Hulu.If you expected a happily ever after story about Offred that isnt this book. Its more about the fall of the dystopian and non-functional Gilead from the point of view of some of the women, gender-traitors, who run the regime and also some of the young women born into the system. Havent you wondered what a young girl would think of her impending marriage in such a world where women are vessels, not allowed to read and treated as chattel?Best of all in this book is the story of Agnes Jemima, a young girl growing up as a daughter of a Commander and a Wife. Shes an innocent, trying to make sense of the Gilead world where everything is kept secret or is an out-and-out deception. Her simplistic voice is almost like that of Offred in the original Handmaid book, with its cool observation and background of confusion about what went on before or behind her back.Then we get the autobiography and first-person story of Aunt Lydia, the moral guardian of the Gilead society. As well as some of the story of the Underground Female-Road and the resistance (Mayday Movement) The deeper look into the complex villain Aunt Lydia fleshes out the cartoonish cruel and vicious prison matron picture into something much more interesting. I wondered how such a dysfunctional society bent on execution, control and utter despondency could survive for long, so here is the sequel filling in that story. At first, I was a little upset to not be reading any of the characters of the first book. It starts slower than the original book due to having three main characters. It is confusing at first until you start to pick up each of their POV. Towards the end of the book, however, having three POV adds more tension and suspense. I like the authors double meanings throughout the book. I also feel that this book like the first book is relevant to the current environment. I do appreciate that this book tries to add details of how the regime started and ended. I even liked the ending since I tend to like darker endings to the books I read. This book lives up to its predecessor.


The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of 9/11

See Price


Description

Review Over 64 fine-sliced chapters, Mr. Graff … gives us the stories of those who lived through and experienced 9/11where they were, what they remember, and how their lives changed. The result is remarkable, and Mr. Graffs curation of these accountsdrawn from hundreds of his own interviews and from the reporting of other journalists and historiansis a priceless civic gift… . The book is refreshingly free from editorializing, ideology and ululation. It gives us instead poignant, often distressing, vignettes and impressions of the day and its aftermath. On page after page, a reader will encounter words that startle, or make him angry, or heartbroken, or queasy. The Wall Street Journal Compelling … The voices in The Only Plane in the Sky are so vivid… . There are snippets in Graffs oral history from those who perishedmessages for loved ones left by office workers stranded on the upper floors of the towers; calls from flight attendants and passengers aboard United Flight 93 that were recorded or remembered. But most of the voices in the book belong to survivors. That may explain, at least in part, why The Only Plane in the Sky manages to feel hopeful… . Eventually, of course, all of us who remember 9/11 will be gone, and some of our stories will be forgotten. But, thanks to Graffs fine work, many will endure. Jay Carney, Air Mail A harrowing account of the September 11 attacks, told through the voices of many who were personally affected. Graff weaves together the stories of airline workers, first responders, generals at the Pentagon and more to contextualize and seek to further understand the trauma, humanity and history of 9/11. TIME Magazine (The 42 Most Anticipated Books of Fall 2019) Graff excels at re-creating the anxiety and terror of that day … Readers who emerge dry-eyed from the text should check their pulses: Something is wrong with their hearts. Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Harrowing and powerful … This vivid, moving work is painful to read but honors both those who died and those who survived that awful day. Publishers Weekly (starred review) This is history at its most immediate and moving. In The Only Plane in the Sky, Garrett Graff has crafted an enduring portrait of a deadly and consequential day, a day that has shaped all other subsequent days in America for nearly two decades. A marvelous and memorable book. Jon Meacham, author of The Soul of America As I read The Only Plane in the Sky, I was instantly transported back to the chaos, shock, and fear that we all felt on September 11. Reliving the day in real time, through the eyes of Americans on the ground and in the air, had me turning each page with my heart in my throat. I may have known how the story would end, but reading these intensely personal accounts reminded me why this tragic day would change us forever, while the stories of courage and resilience renewed my faith in humanity. Theres been a lot written about 9/11, but nothing like this. I urge you to read it. Katie Couric, author of The Best Advice I Ever Got Although many years have passed since 9/11, this book, told with such immediacy, brings so vividly back to mind the shock of that day, and why it continues to shape the tragic history that has followed. Lawrence Wright, author of The Looming Tower The Only Plane in the Sky is a stunning and important workchilling, heartbreakingand I cannot stop thinking about it. To hear the voices of those who survived, and those who did not, is so moving and powerful. I learned so much, and am so thankful for this book. Anderson Cooper, author of Dispatches from the Edge Raw, emotional, and intense, this jaw-dropping narrative, composed entirely of firsthand accounts, strips away the politics that have grown up around 9/11 and have clouded its brutal impact on the American psyche. Rarely is history delivered with such vivid sensory detail. Garrett Graffs meticulous reporting transported us, with visceral clarity, back to those horrifying hours that changed us all forever. Lynn Vincent and Sara Vladic, authors of Indianapolis Garrett Graff has deftly used oral history to take us into the one of the most horrific and consequential moments in American history, in a book that will be particularly important for those readers too young to remember September 11, 2001. Michael Beschloss, author of Presidents of War 9/11 is one of the hinge events of American history and Garrett Graff adds considerably to our knowledge of the horrors and the heroism that characterized that terrible day. The Only Plane in the Sky is a deeply researched and authoritative account.

Ive read many books on 9/11, but stayed away from the conspiracy books, and I have to say that this new book (just released last night at midnight, 9/10/2019), is probably the best one Ive ever read. And Im only about a third of the way through. I stayed up late last night to read it.One of the things I like most about it is its format. Oral History. That format has been around for awhile and is quite popular. If you read the Oral History of SNL, you know what its like.Its written in a flowing conversation involving a hundred different people. Each paragraph is a different person (a survivor, a witness, President Bush, a fireman, a deli worker, etc. etc.) adding to the conversation, which is laid out in order of events. So where one person starts to tell about something, it is picked up by the next person in the narrative. So you get multiple viewpoints of the same events.And since its not written as just the facts kind of narrative, its from people who lost loved ones in the attack, and from survivors, it tends to be an extremely emotional read. It transports you back to the time and places of 9/11/2001.If theres just one book to read… about 9/11, I highly suggest this one! This is a powerful, vivid and emotional recounting of 9/11. Garrett seamlessly weaves together a range of voices, ensuring the history of one of Americas most powerful days is heard from all perspective.The book is a must read to capture not only the history of the day but to be reminded (or learn, for younger generations) of the emotions woven into these historic and tragic events. I cried my way through the book, while reliving that terrible day. And I mourned for America, again. Remember and never forget. Im only part way into the book but so far its very well done. Im a fan of the way the material is presented, makes it very relatable and easy to follow. It is difficult to read in that I find myself on the verge of tears. I had to stop reading it at work because it made me so sad. I hope many will read it. Its important that we dont forget what happened, and whats important, in a world thats become so cynical. This book is fantastic! The stories are in chronological order of how the day unfolded. Its a very personal look at what those who were there were seeing and living. Heart touching and just fantastic I cant remember another reading experience like this. Whatever your own experience of 9/11 was - and for all of us who lived through it, we remember where we were, what we were doing - Garrett takes that lived experience and makes the day come alive through the stories of hundreds of Americans, and makes you feel like your memories blend with those of the people whose stories are told on these pages.Id read the original magazine article that formed the basis of the book, and I remember thinking what a revelation it was to hear from those closest to the President what that day was like from their perspective. To take that and turn it into this book - with all the nuance, drama, emotion, loss, love - is an astounding achievement. I feel lucky to have read this on 9/11, and cannot recommend it highly enough. You wont be able to put this book down, particularly if you are of an age that lived through 9/11. Living overseas at the time of 9/11, after reading this book I now know there were many things I missed about that day. You WILL NOT regret reading this book as its not only very well written but also very moving. We all remember where we were when 911 happened. This book takes us there in excruciating detail, and puts us in the shoes of those who witnessed it. I read each page with a lump in my throat. I will recommend it for my 10 y/o granddaughter when she is old enough to understand. I hope he writes a book about what people were doing in other parts of the country…to bring us all together. No matter what side of the isle youre on, we were all Americans that day, and we all stood together. Im actually reading it ON 9/11. Go USA!

Preordered this book some months ago, as was always a fan. Then read some recent SK rants made comparing events in this novel to certain views on law enforcement at our borders. Immediately returned the book for refund before reading it. I will not make another SK purchase. King writes so well about the innocence of kids. He also writes at his best when the subject is pure evil. Slap them together and you have The Institute. The book starts in a simple little town where a cop passing through takes a job as a night knocker. Theres a kid, a really smart kid, whose 12 years old and getting ready to attend MIT because hes, you know, special. Thats the setting. From there it gets chilling. Even without ghosts, or vampires or outer space boogie men.The child, Luke, is taken in the middle of the night. His folks are murdered. He wakes up at The Institute in Maine in a room thats just like his - almost. Theres other kids there and he gets the skinny from a young girl in the hallway, seemingly smoking a cigarette. She tells him that they do stuff to the kids, injections-flickering lights-dunking, but at least theyre in the Front Half. You dont want to go to the Back Half. No, thats like the roach motel. Kids go in and dont ever come out.To say this is a character study of the people throughout history who have told themselves that the horrible, hideous, atrocious things they do are for a higher good. This book is King at his best. Its tense and I found myself ill at ease throughout the 500 plus pages. But its good. A good story, good writing, and yeah, sure, its relevant in the America of today and about our choices. Another banger from our Dark Lord. Stephen Kings voice is present and engaging in this hearty thriller. While not as horrific as some of his other (over 50!) novels, this is just as addicting. Like his other novels, this one has a steady build and is impossible to put down. Two thumbs way up.And, incidentally, contrary to what I have read elsewhere, one cannot read The Institute without being reminded of some of the less-than-ideal circumstances many children face today near certain boarders. However, this book sweeps broad in its impact and is not limited to any certain circumstance.(Also, its nice to see that Stephen King finally got a proper author photo.) Typical King fashion, cannot put it down! As I sometimes do, Im going to open myself up to you in a way that may, or may not, resonate. I hope it does, but I know it is probable that detractors will hurl insults my way, as they toss expletives at the master of horror himself. Wish I could state that in so doing I share a common ground with King, but, frankly, I am no more qualified to walk in his shadow as a writer than I am to walk in the shadow of Saint Peter as a Christian.So, why am I such a fan of Stephen King? I became a fan not due to his fiction. That writing took years of exposure before he won me over. His nonfiction writing, though, went straight to my heart. You see, I am a bit old-fashioned when it comes to fiction and writing. I loved some fiction, such as Old Yeller and Shane, but, my interest always was oriented toward the nonfiction tales by the likes of John Goddard (Go North, Young Man), Eric Collier (Three Against the Wilderness) and Bradford Angier (several books on living off the land).Then, one day, I read The Stand. That book was the culmination of everything I felt a novel should be, written in exactly the right language and flow.In recent years, King has penned a vast number of tales that tickled that nerve hidden deep inside me. While I enjoyed most all of them, not one of them satisfied that itch deep inside. Until, perhaps, The Institute.Once again, King is not the artist on par with James Michener or John Steinbeck or F. Scott Fitzgerald. When it comes to plain English writing, especially the sort where the writer stays outside the story and lets his characters get through to us so we can see the world through their eyes, though, no master storyteller comes close to Stephen King, in my humble opinion. So, as you peruse the review below, know that I am prejudiced in favor of Stephen King.In The Institute, we begin our journey in a small village of South Carolina. The opening is a masterful way to tug us along as we get to know a key figure and setting. Later, we meet our protagonist in Minneapolis and still later we get to know him (Luke) in Maine. To expound further would lead to spoilers, which I refuse to doBLUSH FACTOR: If youve never read a Stephen king book, it might surprise you to learn the master of horror does not write for children or for people whose ears are sensitive to foul language. Yet, I found myself enthralled by yet another novel by one of my favorite authors.POV: Presented in third person point of view.WRITING & EDITING: In my opinion, no writer alive today gets into the heads of his subjects and tells their story to us better than does Stephen King. I marvel in considering how perfectly he presents these kids in their own words. I mean, King is in his seventies, how in the world can he so perfectly sound as though he is one of those kids?BOTTOM LINE:As enthralled as I am by this latest offering from Stephen King, it should be obvious I am rating it five stars out of five. I purchased this book because Im writing a review for our newspaper in October and wanted a fresh copy to keep with my article. Today it came freshly dented. Thanks! Couldnt put it down. Kings got a way with capturing the essence of childhood, the struggles of maturing and how the loss of innocence is the greatest hurdle in our lives. This is a solid 3 Stephen King book. Its not his worst, its not his best just somewhere in the middle. The characterization is a bit weaker than usual, the horror more mundane (its not a vampire or a psycho clown or the man in black or a UFO) and the big climatic struggle just doesnt compare to most of his other stories. I was also disappointed with a twist he throws in towards the end that suggests the situation explored in the book is not quite unique in the world; it just seemed a very lazy addition to the story.He has done the idea of telepathic kids several times now and, in most of the other cases, much better. While he gets in a few shots at the president and moans a little tiny bit about the HRC loss in 2016, he portrays the south and its love of guns pretty positively as part of the plot. All in all.. his political bias dont really get too much in the way of the story. The evil government thats behind the institute has been doing it for quite a long time across multiple types of administrations.Finally, I always enjoy a story the gives me an entertaining new quote to add to my collection. I thought this one was a gem.wish in one hand, sh*t in the other, see which one fills up first.

Super cute dress. Im 59 155 lbs and bought a size large, it fit perfect and not too short. Absolutely adorable. Perfect little black dress I love the quality of the fabric and it has a nice shape. Im 56 210 and got an XL. It was nice but could be looser. Overall I am happy and will be purchasing more clothing from this seller in the future! (Im on the right) Very good material for the price! Overall pretty happy with this purchase. It was maybe a smidge too big. Im 55 and about 140 and got a medium. I absolutely LOVE this dress. I buy from amazon all the time and this may be my favorite. Not cheap material like you typically get with an amazon buy. Im 57 185 and its the perfect length. I ordered it in 2 other colors. Im a D and typically a 12-14 size Large was perfect. Like another review mentioned, there is an odd seam right on the front. I only saw that one review saying this so I thought maybe it was just the one she got, but nope. Maybe in another color it wouldnt be as bad, but in white the seam is very prominent. I ordered down a size because of the reviews and the fit was good, but I cant get over the seam. Will be returning. I lots of read helpful reviews before purchasing, and I got a bit worried about the fit when I opened the package and felt the material. Put the dress on and zipped it up and it fits beautifully. I tried it on without a bra on and it was not see through. For reference, Im a 38C; 51; 165lbs and have a cone body shape. I love this dress. I feel that it is a generous Medium in size. If you are the girl that cant decide on the medium or the large, then this maybe your dress. I usually have problems with fit in the chest 37DD (36 too tight 38 too big) I am sure ladies with similar size understand this. I was equally concerned because it has a zipper in the back and that usually is the kiss of death. This dress didnt let me down. I also think if you arent as well endowed that it wont look big up top. The V-neck isnt too deep but enough to wear most any necklace. The sleeves are great with the bell and complete the look and the length is perfect. Not too long (I am 5.5) hits above the knee, but I can move freely without fear of exposing too much like some dresses. Im 49 and find that some I feel age inappropriate, however I am too young for other styles. I did order both the medium and the large for all of these reasons and the medium fit like a glove, so will return the large. Gotta love Prime and Kohls returns! This dress is adorable. It is fairly short. Im 5 feet tall and it comes above my knee. I ordered up a size (got a medium) because I wanted something a little loose and flowy… should have gotten a large. Im 5 feet tall 125 pounds and pretty curvy. It fits perfectly now but no extra room as I had wanted. Ill have to decide whether to keep it or Exchange for large. I have to say its very cute, although sheer.UPDATE: I ordered a large to see if it would give me the boxier look I wanted. It does not, it just looks too big so I am returning it. Heres the kicker though, it is lined! The last one I ordered is not lined, and if youll notice above I even said it was sheer! I thought about ordering a third time In medium in hopes of getting a lined one, but who knows what Ill get next time. Ive decided to just get a slip in black. Still an adorable dress for the price .

LOVE these!! I plan on buying these again in a different color because I love them so much. I keep them at work and wear them to prevent headaches while staring at the computer all day. I have not gotten a single headache since starting to wear these. They also look great and I have gotten a bunch of compliments. I will say that if you have a smaller face, the large frames might not compliment your face shape. Also, as other reviews have mentioned, they are pretty reflective. However, I am not taking selfies in the office when I wear these so its a non-issue. Im apparently the last one to know about this kind of glasses. Im an entrepreneur, Im always looking at a screen of some sort. The glasses make a huge difference with how my eyes feel. LONG POST, BUT… #migraineupdate 🤕SO! I literally have TRIED EVERYTHING under the sun for migraine relief! Essential Oils, all sorts of vitamins, supplements, the daith ear piercing,🔫 pain meds, chiropractic appointments, EXPENSIVE neurologist appointments & prescription meds💊, migraine tracking / trigger focus🍤🐟, and EVERY crazy home remedy out there🍌🔥! My last options were to try a few more newer prescriptions,💊 injections & shots to relieve the pain, or Botox.💉 NONE of which were options I wanted to try AND all of my remedies either did very little-nothing, or eventually did not work as well over time😭. I have suffered from getting migraines up to 2x a week for the past 6 years! I learned ALL my triggers, (Stress being #1) but still could NOT avoid a migraine. Even in the summer with little to NO stress, I would still have too many miserable, bed ridden days!One option I had not tried (despite 1st checking with an eye dr!) was👓BLUE LIGHT FILTER GLASSES👓!As a teacher , Im on my computer, iPad , or smart board ALL DAY! Not to mention the bad lighting in school. Even on my time off, I find myself on my phone, or watching TV to wind down! These glasses have been a MIRACLE for me & I am SO SO Soooooo THANKFUL that I have FINALLY FOUND RELIEF FOR OVER ONE MONTH WITH ZERO MIGRAINES! #bluelightfilterglasses 🤓 #migrainerelief🤕 #thanksAmazon😍 They seem great! I have a small face so I have trouble finding good glasses and these were much too big for me. They are slightly bigger than the product pictures let on (see my pics). But the packaging was nice and the glasses seemed to be well made. Promising company! Maybe theyll come out with a smaller size one day. I work in front of a screen all day and had recently been getting headaches due to blue light exposure. You can clearly see the change of color when you put these on, and theyve made a world of difference for me. And you cant beat the price! Highly recommend!! I love these glasses, they are super cute. I work at a computer everyday for at least 8 hours plus take online classes and over the past few months have been getting really bad headaches and so I wanted to try these out and see if they helped. I can honestly say that they have! I have fewer headaches and my eyes arent super tried anymore. Also, I picked this particular brand because they were designed to block blue light and they send you a test kit with the glasses, as aposed to just being cute, and the price is perfect. The only reason why I didnt give it 5 stars is because they are a little tight, but hopefully that will get better with time. Pretty much my entire life I have had excellent vision. I was often called Eagle-eye because I could see things other people just couldnt. My eyesight has been getting fuzzier over the last 6 years - in fact, it started the exact time I had an increase of time in front of the computer. The last time my eyesight went funky, it was because of my junky, flickery work monitor (one of those old CRTs). I actually had to get glasses because I became nearsighted. Once the monitor was replaced, my eyesight went back to normal.This time around, I became farsighted. I had to get reading glasses because I couldnt read medicine bottle or even paperwork I had to complete! I figured it was still a monitor issue, considered when I first started noticing the trouble and how long it has been going on. But, I thought it was not quite the same problem since it was not causing the same vision stress. When I read about the harm of blue light, I figured that might be my problem. I looked through the glasses on Amazon, and picked these for the reviews and the color (I love pale pink!).These glasses look just as I was expecting them to look. They are a pretty, pale pink - almost silvery pink. The frames are translucent, so they dont stand out on your face, which I like.They are sturdy and well made - I also love that they dont have nose pads!They come with a lens cleaning cloth, which is very nice. They also come with a blue light tester. Its hard to tell if the tester works since if it does youre not supposed to see anything. But it was nice that they thought to put that in the package anyway.I can tell that things do look a little more yellow with them on - its not a weird, unnatural yellow, just makes everything a bit softer. Like youre in incandescent lighting rather than fluorescent lighting .They do have a bit of glare off them, which seems to be a common problem with blue blocking glasses. But when looking through them, its barely noticeable - mostly noticeable for the people looking at you. I have heard that there are blue blocking glasses that dont have glare, but they are way more expensive. I think for the price of these glasses, its perfectly fine.Do they work? How do you tell? Its not like you can even really see the light they are supposed to block! But, I do believe that they are working for a couple of reasons. There have been several times that my eyes were hurting from looking at my laptop screen. I put the glasses on, and in just a minute or two, my eyes were no longer hurting! That right there is good enough for me to continue using them. But it gets better - after using the glasses for just a few weeks, I can now read things without glasses that I havent been able to read in years! Definitely what I was hoping for!These glasses have no strength, they are NOT reading glasses. But they have been allowing my eyes to rest and heal. I will be getting another pair of blue blocking glasses so I can have one at home and work.If you look at screens a lot, its a good idea to think about getting glasses like these, even if you arent experiencing problems yet. Apparently, from what I have read, the damage that blue light causes to your eyes can be permanent and happens gradually over time. I wish I had known about these glasses years ago! Very cute glasses that have helped me tremendously with the headaches I was getting at work. The yellow tint is very subtle. I even accidentally sat on them the other day and they held up great!

Super light too.For reference Im 59 so its long enough for me and not too boxy/short (which i was nervous because I have a longer torso, and Im a D cup) It says the print is leopard? I dont know. Whatever it is, Im friends with it. Loving this top! This shirt can easily be dressed up for work with a skirt, pants, and a wedge/heel.
