Memorial
Memorial
by Alice Oswald
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.33

5.0 out of 5 stars a true and transcendent understanding of loss, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Memorial (Paperback)
War - and the pity of war. The tragedy of loss continues through geological time. The music and metaphor of the poetry links us to each other and to the natural world as we remember the heroes who were torn by their dreams of glory from life and those who loved them. The earth holds their story when their comrades are long gone.

I am normally omnivorous when it comes to reading but this was so poorly written and the characters so formulaic that I couldn't get beyond the first few pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally gripping, 3 Nov 2013

This was a really engrossing read. Even though there are shades and shadows from many other genres and even pretty clear reflections of other more familiar writes, from Scott Fitzgerald to Muriel Spark this is still a uniquely interesting and engaging work.

I came across this title when searching for something to read while recovering from major surgery. It really cheered me up and I was really taken with what seems to me to be a unique voice

2.0 out of 5 stars clumsy plotting and unconvincing relationships, 3 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am not sure exactly what kind of story this was meant to be - seemed to cross lines between schmaltzy romantic fiction and low intensity sci fi. Disappointing
