5.0 out of 5 stars Food for thought., 14 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this collection of stories - not sure why, as most of them were unbelievable, but one or two gave food for thought

I read Ulysses and that's enough for anyone. He might have been a genius, but frankly, life's too short.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thirty years later..., 14 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ulysses (Kindle Edition)
I read it. I actually read it. I can't believe it. It's taken me thirty years of picking it up, putting it down, and lying at dinner parties. "Of course I've read it," I said. Now, I really HAVE read it. (All I have to do now is understand it.)

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read., 14 Dec. 2014

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm in the minority., 14 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bored me to death, which is a pity as I had intended to read it for years. However, it is a matter of personal taste. Thousands of people love it and regard it a classic, so I'm very much in the minority.

3.0 out of 5 stars You may disagree., 14 Dec. 2014

This review is from: Mortality (Kindle Edition)
Hitchens was being treated with chemotherapy when he wrote this book, and I'm afraid it shows in the writing. Personally, I think it ought to have remained unpublished as it does not do justice to the fine mind and clarity of thought he possessed when at the height of his mental powers. However, that is just my personal opinion, and if you buy it, you may disagree.

A classic. I have always loved it and owned it and now have it on Kindle so that I can dip into it at the bus stop, so to speak.

2.0 out of 5 stars The loss is mine., 14 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't get on with George Elliot, but that's a personal thing. She was a superb writer, and the loss is mine.
