Mad Girl's Love Song: Sylvia Plath and Life Before Ted
Mad Girl's Love Song: Sylvia Plath and Life Before Ted
Price: £8.49

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 17 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good read even if, like me, you only have a fairly casual interest in Ms Plath. Seeing her as someone who was just an obstreperous teenager who had a gift with words was informative and helpful in understanding what happened after her meeting with Hughes

Makes some important points but is rather repetitive and does not really add anything of value to the Piketty book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Norton makes life difficult, 17 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product is fine. But registering it with Norton was a major problem. I already had an account with them with a slightly different product and they seemed totally incapable of extending the account with this new and supposedly superior product. Eventually I managed to close my account and open a new one. But I had to leave it till the date of closure of the old account or I would have lost some of the protection I had already paid for. It will be Kaspersky next year.

This review is from: F: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
I am in two minds about it. Has some very wise and amusing things to say, especially about religion and the art world. But the narrative is rather bitty and I did not know what to make of the abrupt finish though I suppose there is a sense of almost closure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read it if you dare, 24 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The descriptions of life in the prisoner of war camp are brilliantly written but almost unbearable to read. This was one of the very rare occasions when I have had to put a book down from time to time to recover my equilibrium. But everyone should read this exploration of where misplaced loyalty and principle (and poverty) can lead people who are basically decent. I did not give five stars because some of the final chapters and the relationship between Dorrigo and his wife are not entirely convincing, though I suppose these too can be interpreted as explorations of loyalty o0f a different sort.
