Just Kids
Just Kids
by Patti Smith
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

5.0 out of 5 stars I had no proof that I had the stuff to be an artist, though I hungered to be one. - Just Kids, 9 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Just Kids (Paperback)
Patti Smith achieves something truly sublime in Just Kids. The intimacy and atmosphere punctured my understanding of this era. She eloquently presents the problematic relationship she has with Mapplethorpe while majestically embedding the absolute necessity of their love.

The craftsmanship of their exchanges develops their affinity. The relics exchanged become talismans of a greatness they would embrace. The iconic nature of their social interactions presents the framework of their eventual excellence. Your senses are enveloped by the severance of Smith and Mapplethorpes relationship while equally being fascinating by their indirect codependence.

The coalescence of homosexuality and heterosexuality edifies the morality of burgeoning culture. Their love proves that the binary of sexuality fails to appreciate the beauty of human interaction.

I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend this book to others.

5.0 out of 5 stars What baffled him was that there should be all this fuss about something so simple as love., 8 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really enjoyable piece of literature that explores the issues of morality in burgeoning capitalism. 'One's duty is to feel what is great, cherish the beautiful, and to not accept the conventions of society with the ignominy that it imposes upon us.'

Beautifully written, immersive and genuinely engaging. A story of the multifaceted composition of love.

I very much enjoyed this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Feathers sticking through after a few hours., 8 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered this for a cushion cover that I have bought off Amazon. The quality of this cushion pad at first seemed good, but after a few hours (not days, weeks or months) the feathers started pushing through the cushion cover. I appreciate that with time, items like this begin to fail but a few hours before feathers are pushing through is bottom of the quality standard.

I would hold out for another options, or invest a bit more. These cushion pads failed on quality, integrity and longevity.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware! These are cheap and flimsy!, 26 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this one over cheaper alternatives as I was planning a 2 month trip. After a few days the handle for one of the zips came off, annoying but the zip was still usable so I continued using them. 2 weeks into my trip one of the bags ripped at the top rendering the bag useless. I went for these more expensive bags (there are cheaper alternatives around Amazon) because I hoped they would be harder wearing and longer lasting, sadly they're not. Save yourself the hassle and money and try another brand, these are not worth the price tag.

1.0 out of 5 stars More Horrifying, than Jim Carrey Hilarious, 25 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this from the seller Sophie110792 and the item looks nothing like the one pictured. The mask I received was terrifying, more horrific, than Jim Carrey hilarious. You're better off with some green face paint, as this suffocating monstrosity is an incredibly poor quality item.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 19 Feb. 2014
This album is a fantastic piece. It has a melodic harmony that explores a depth of music that really makes me feel that I am listening to something new. I am really enjoying this album and hope that you enjoy it too :)
