Songs Of Innocence And Of Experience

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor edition -- full of typos, 24 Oct. 2009
This edition is full of mistakes and typos and does not contain Blake's illustrations. It is not the edition shown under "search inside". Instead, it appears to be a collection of bound computer printouts, hastily compiled in an afternoon from half-remembered versions of the poems. Even the cover page has a print fault. It is worth paying more for a typo-free edition that does not refer to "The Sick Rose" as "The Sisk Rose" and "The Tyger" as "The Tiger". AVOID.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book -- highly recommended, 22 Jun. 2009
This review is from: How to Drink (Hardcover)
Like Nigel Slater's Kitchen Diaries, this is very much a personal view -- and all the better for it. Victoria Moore's evident enthusiasm for her subject, and her mouthwatering descriptions, meant that while I was reading the book I kept having to dash into the kitchen for a fresh mint tea... and then a crisp glass of wine... and then a gin and tonic. The recipes I've tried so far - both for drinks and for nibbley things to serve with them - have been great, and the drink she refers to as her favourite (the "Campari and blood-orange thing") is fast becoming one of my favourites too. I really recommend this book -- a great gift for others, or for you!
