I loved this story - I did the audio book and found the reader fantastic - the accents were wonderful - I am now a big fan of Jess Walter and will look to read some more of his work - I gave the audio to a friend and she could not stop listening - she loved it as well - I hope one day it is a movie but they could probably not capture it on film as well.
I thought the reviews were exaggerating because if it was THAT good, everybody would use it. I am not normally an excessive sweater, but I am on a medication that causes annoying nightsweats. I was mostly hoping though, that I could basically stop needing to wash my button downs and nice blouses every time I wear them.
I received the product quickly and immediately got a follow-up email from the company asking me to call or email them if the product wasn't working so that they could assist me.
I put it on last night when I was cool and unsweaty, an hour before bed, after showering. I just patted the towelette on until the area was very wet, folded it back up and put it in the foil inside a ziploc bag (to try to squeeze out another use) and let it dry without putting any fabrics over it (if you put on a T-shirt or something while it's drying, you can wipe it off). It was a bit itchy until I went to sleep, but not even as bad as a wool sweater. Last night was one of the worst nights I'd had yet in terms of night sweats. The areas I had not applied sweatblock to were soaked and I actually had to change pants, twice due to sweat. By contrast, my armpits were 100% dry. Not a drop of sweat. I couldn't believe it.
I've been sitting in bed all morning relaxing with my arms pressed to my sides and still no sweat, when normally this is about the smelliest "activity" I do. I went and worked out and STILL NO SWEAT. This product is AMAZING. Why does everyone not use it? I have no use for the many deodorants I've tried anymore, this is IT. Since applying this there has not been one drop of sweat that has come out of my armpits. Not one.
Full disclosure, I didn't buy this from Amazon, but from a local store. I did look at Amazon's reviews though before buying it so thought it was appropriate to share my thoughts.
Took me an hour or so to put it together. I wasn't in a hurry so I took my time and read the directions. I will say though that having a decent socket set around will help tremendously since you need to hold some washers still while you screw the bolts in to them. But really, if you haven't invested in even a cheap socket set you probably should do that before buying a grill.
All the pieces fit nicely and the only adjustment I had to make was to loosen the screws a little bit on the lid. I was a bit to 'manly' on them and they were so tight the lid was rubbing along the sides.
I fired it up and it started heating up pretty quickly. Within about 10 minutes it was well over 300 degree, and quickly got up to 450-500.
I threw a couple hot dogs on it as a test (after letting it burn off the initial manufacturing oils) and they cooked in the time I expected, and were tasty, pretty much like a gas grill. I'll try some hamburger tonight.
I bought this because I wanted a small compact grill that I could easily stash in my garage when it's not in use, and would be easy to use and keep clean. I've had a bunch of cheap gas grills that don't last more than a season because they end up outside most of the winter. Hoping that a simple grill like this will end that trend and allow me to keep this one going for much longer.
My overall impression is very positive of this product and it does what it advertises, and seems to do it quite well.
