Misleading 20 Feb. 2009
By Vimala Nowlis - Published on Amazon.com
DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! I bought this book because of its title, "Black Lamb(s) and Grey Falcon(s) - Women Travelling In The Balkans". WRONG. It had nothing to do with women "travelling" in the Balkans. Nothing written by Rebecca West or by any women who actually "travelled" in the Balkans. It rode on the fame of Rebecca West's book "Black Lamb and Grey Falcon" but Rebecca West only received a passing mention. There was no direct first hand information. No indirect second hand information either. It's only "reviews" and "opinions" by some unknown men and women, whose credentials are unknown, about the lives and writings of some women who had travelled to the Balkans. The title of this book should be "Editorials of People who Never Been to the Balkans about Women who did Go to the Balkans 100 Years Ago". And the writing quality is Extremely Poor. It's in the complex and twisted undisciplined "stream of consciousness" style with several ideas running on and on in the same sentence with each noun and verb decorated with several adjectives and adverbs and clauses not clearly defined and ideas not clearly separated while misrepresenting intelligence and depth with confusion and contortion and disguising illogical construction by layers of lyrical pretensions and confused literary writing. (Got the idea of the style?) How did it ever get published? Rebecca West's estate should sue the editors for misusing the title of her book and confusing the public thus harming her good name and hurting her reputation.
