5.0 out of 5 stars delightful illiustrated pocket book to keep by the bed side if you like poetry., 22 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is part of a series of these books where the author describes Wordsworth life, illustrates the poem is so easy to read. Poetry is always so much better if you know how the poet was feeling at the time and his situation. Small snippets of his life are displayed on every page of poems giving a delightful pocket book for those who like illustrated works. I keep them by the bed and read at leaisure over and over again....I hope you enjoy too?

5.0 out of 5 stars clasic masterpiece of love, 22 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jane Austin writes so well it was a joy to read and get to know the characters. You have to like the period and understand the different motivations of those living at those times when marriage and income were vital to lades of a certain position. The romance is always spiked with problems which keeps the pages turning.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic of slave memory, 22 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Long Song (Paperback)
This book about the slaves and the small group of plantation owners and politicians who ruled over them. The book begins with a shocking revelation of life on the plantations and rape leading to the birth of the hero. The events of this island are both gripping, horrifying and vivid but there is a lightness too that makes the story very readable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Story of abuse, 1 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Subject matter too depressing and unrelenting for higher star rating in my rather sheltered opinion. There was little humour to relieve the unrelenting exploration of abuse and its effects.
