Dante's Inferno
Dante's Inferno
by Hunt Emerson
Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 19 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dante's Inferno (Paperback)
I read the Inferno both before and after reading this, and I can honestly say it made a lot more sense the second time around. Hunt Emerson's illustrations are both witty and ambitious and the writing manages to stay remarkably close to the source material while still being very funny. A must for those interested in Dante and those interested in comics in general.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting, 20 Nov 2013

A wide ranging introduction that busted many misconceptions with clear prose. Sometimes a little dry, but still worth a read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good overview, 27 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Short, concise, and most importantly, neutral. It is very short, so some readers may find it somewhat lacking, but as a very basic overview of the crisis it's definitely worth a read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Interesting Read, 19 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first work by Russell that I have read in its entirety and I have to say I found it thoroughly interesting and, on the whole, very easy to read. This book is as much a history as it is a book on ethics; Russell is keen to flush out every point he makes with historical evidence from a variety of cultures and time periods. Whether or not you agree with Russell (my personal level of agreement varied somewhat from chapter to chapter) you at least feel that each argument was well thought out and merits at least a pause for thought.
The book is, in many ways, years ahead of its time, and much of what Russell predicts bears great relevance to today's society, perhaps even more so than when it was written.


Worst Movie Posters of All Time
Worst Movie Posters of All Time
by Gregory J. Edwards
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars It made me laugh, 20 Sep 2012
A good collection of so-bad-they're-almost-good movie posters, with genuinely witty notes accompanying them. Recommended without a doubt, but only if you enjoy sub-par drawings, blatant historical sexism and/or truly perplexing taglines.


Introducing Mind and Brain: A Graphic Guide
Introducing Mind and Brain: A Graphic Guide
by Angus Gellatly
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic, but good., 3 Oct 2011
I liked the simplicity, it really was what is says on the tin - an introduction. Perhaps there was a bit too much focus on history and not enough focus on modern developments, but still a good book.
