4.0 out of 5 stars Pertinent writing
Strongly worded, well crafted and powerfully delivered, Zephaniah's is a vibrant and pertinent voice in modern British poetry. In this collection he examines and lays bare the injustices faced by minorities in Britain and elsewhere. Zephaniah is angry about injustice, he laments it and exposes it. His anger is sorrow too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review
This book took an absolute age to be delivered as it was out of stock but when you need it for your son's school work this is really not acceptable but everywhere seemed to be out of stock as well

4.0 out of 5 stars Pertinent writing, 10 Jan 2011
This review is from: Too Black, Too Strong (Paperback)
Strongly worded, well crafted and powerfully delivered, Zephaniah's is a vibrant and pertinent voice in modern British poetry. In this collection he examines and lays bare the injustices faced by minorities in Britain and elsewhere. Zephaniah is angry about injustice, he laments it and exposes it. His anger is sorrow too. He does not seek the destruction of society but rather justice for all; a chance for minorities and the underprvileged to be part of, and to have the chance to be part of, modern (British) society. Not all the poems are of the same quality but overall this is memorable writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good..., 24 Aug 2010
This review is from: Too Black, Too Strong (Paperback)
My 16 yr old (very literate but usually non-committal) son says this is 'very good'. He enjoyed looking at things from Benjamin Zephaniah's point of view.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as other works..., 23 Jan 2004
This review is from: Too Black, Too Strong (Paperback)
As expected, it would have been impossible to reach up to the standards of face and refugee boy, but this is still a pretty good book! Written in a similar style to his other books, this is not a novel but poetry, criticism and drama. it's worth a read.
