"Heart of Darkness" and "The End of the Tether" (Collector's Library)
"Heart of Darkness" and "The End of the Tether" (Collector's Library)
by David Pinching
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 5.78

5.0 out of 5 stars Definetly world literature, 14 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Both beautifully written, nicely paced and - most importantly - containing very, very interesting themes, this book is a must-have for people interested in history or anybody who can appreciate a great piece of literature. You will learn something about mankind that might not have ever thought of before...
Lengthwise, it will take a foreigner (as myself) about around 5 hours to read, and the language is for the most part fairly straight-forward.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great, great work, 1 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A History of Japan (Paperback)
I picked up this book, expecting it to be somewhat good. What I got was a masterpiece.
Encompassing both political, military and, foremost, cultural elements, this book is a must-have for people interested in the history of Japan, both for those with and those without foreknowledge.
Lengthwise, it's a bit short of 400 pages.
