Detailed, well laid-out and much more than just 'useful'...
on 17 July 2000
A marvellous book - I have used it since starting Latin, aged 9, until now, at university. It contains (almost) all the grammar and syntax that is needed at my current level (it is certainly more than sufficient at GCSE/A-Level standard), and all the information is laid out in a very logical and easy to follow manner. One small moan, though, for A-Level use and beyond; the syntax chapter at the end of the book is not overly explanatory, and generally lacks information on the origins of the construction under discussion. For this, may I recommend E Woodcock 's "A New Latin Syntax", which provides for all that Kennedy is missing.
