1.0 out of 5 stars Not The Goldfinch but a REVIEW of it, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The bbok has the wrong name.
It should be called Review of The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.

I was looking for the paperback version of The Goldfinch. Didn't know it wasn't out yet, and mistakenly bought this paperback which looked like it was that book, but had Review tucked away at the end of the title.

It read like it was people making up things to say about the book.
It was not helpdul.

I have given it away to the Oxfam 2nd hand bookshop. Maybe someone else will apprciate it, but not any9one at my book group where I read out extracts from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars insight into why people seek asylum, 13 Nov 2009
If you don't know why people seek asylum here, or want to help other people to understand, `Taking It Like A Man' gives special insight into what drives people to leave their homes and countries.

Many people are questioning whether we should still let refugees come to Britain; at an international level there is a slackening of the moral opposition to torture.

Ghazi Hussein's powerful poetry about his own experiences, plus essential background facts, help us to learn what we need to know as responsible citizens, as staff providing services, and as human beings.
