Voices of Silence: The Alternative Book of First World War Poetry
Voices of Silence: The Alternative Book of First World War Poetry
by Vivien Noakes
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Voices often ignored, from the Great War, 6 April 2011
This is a truly interesting collection of verse from WWI Britain. The points of view are kaleidoscopic, from gung-ho armchair warriors to weary trench fodder to conscientious objectors to women waiting at home. One caveat: some entries fail utterly as poetry. I think these duds are more than counterbalanced by the real gems here.


Air Mail: Letters From The World's Most Troublesome Passenger
Air Mail: Letters From The World's Most Troublesome Passenger
by Terry Ravenscroft
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny book by a talented writer, 4 Feb 2011
A record of a number of epistolic legpulls perpetrated on various airlines. The lengths to which corporate functionaries will go to keep an utterly mad customer happy are wondrous to read.


Adrian Mole: The Prostrate Years
Adrian Mole: The Prostrate Years
by Sue Townsend
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Adrian Mole: Mensch!, 30 Aug 2010
Sue Townsend shows us a human being who has grown from a self-absorbed, obsessive-compulsive but oddly lovable twit into a mature, unselfish, lovable adult. It has been wonderful to watch Adrian's progress through her entertainingly written volumes.
