5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating read, 15 Jun 2011
This epic poem is unlike anything else. Fascinating read, it encorporates everything it is to be human: the struggle, determination, love, fear the list goes on. I primarily selected this poem for my Italian and English exams at A level, although when I finished the book I realised I should have read it ages ago! Over the summer I'll definitely read the other two parts to the Divine Commedy, although this poem stands alone in my opnion. The english translation on opposite sides of the page to the original italian is very helpful and obviously a necessity if you can't speak old italian. I would highly reccomend reading the commentary after every Canto as this helps to understand the meaning behind the metaphors. Great read, definitely reccomend it to everyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Incredible!, 19 Jun 2010
This review is from: Lupe Fiasco's The Cool (Audio CD)
First thing is the incredible lyrics, then comes the insane beats from soundtrax and the other producers, just incredible. Lupe is a genius and in my opinion one of the most important lyricists today, with songs like 'Little Weapon' that have such an important message conveyed through Lupe's great flow and rhymes, and then great songs about the life of The Cool on 'The Coolest' are again some of the best raps i've ever heard. I haven't quite listened to all rap has to offer yet, but so far this is my favourite :D
