Product Description

Review

Among the most generous, self-willed, unseemly and brilliant writers of our century (The New York Times)

About the Author

Robert Graves was born in 1895 in Wimbledon. He went from school to the First World War, where he became a captain in the Royal Welch Fusiliers and was seriously wounded at the Battle of the Somme. He wrote his autobiography, Goodbye to All That, in 1929, and it was soon established as a modern classic. He died on 7 December 1985 in Majorca, his home since 1929.

By hfffoman TOP 500 REVIEWER on 5 April 2014
Format: Paperback
I hesitate to slate a book written by an author as famous as Robert Graves but it is no exaggeration to say that I found it utterly tedious.

To be fair, it may be historically accurate and it may capture something of the thoughts of the real Sergeant Lamb. But I don't believe the Sergeant would have written in such stilted long-winded prose. You will not find anyone speaking in a remotely similar style in the pages of his contemporary Jane Austen. The arguments with which he damns the American cause are like an ill-informed schoolboy rant running to some 20 pages. The Daily Mail is infinitely more entertaining.

I found it so unenjoyable I could not finish it. (This is from someone who is happy to read dense literature, even archaic prose, when it is well written.)

I think I bought this for 1p. I read it once as a child and loved it but now appreciate it much more. Roger Lamb was a keen and intelligent observer. As well as the history the striking thing is the biodiversity which he witnessed in almost its natural state, although it was been recklessly destroyed as he wrote it. If you happen to find yourself in Dublin or Quebec or any of the places mentioned it would be fascinating to see how much, if any, of his world still remains 225 years later.
