And There Was Light: The Extraordinary Memoir of a Blind Hero of the French Resistance in World War II
And There Was Light: The Extraordinary Memoir of a Blind Hero of the French Resistance in World War II
by Jacques Lusseyran
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.16

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone Should Read This Book., 2 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beautifully written and a mind altering read in matters of living without sight. He takes you inside himself, to experience what he experiences with great muscularity as well as great sensitivity. That life could be so rich, so intimate and so full blooded for someone who is sightless, is a marvel.
As history it is also of great value.
I am so glad he wrote this before his untimely death, it is one of those works that I consider a gift into the human race. It caused me to consider what it is to be human all over again and to ask myself how fully I am living my life.

Unfortunately, quite a few of the tags were dirty, they had marks on them rather like marks from greasy fingers. Those were not usable and had to be thrown away. They also arrived very dishevelled and took some time to sort out, right end to right end.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is everything everyone writes about it, 27 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Yellow Birds (Paperback)
A sensational read. It exceeded all I had read about it. It is poetic but pithy, the prose as taut as the subject matter. It is the most human of voices. A gift to each of us from this still very young writer.

So many beautiful poems in this collection. It spans the centuries with many tiny ancient works from all over the globe as well as contemporary poems. A wonderful, heart-felt collection, musing on day and night, dawn and dusk, the changing lights of life. Hard to imagine anyone who enjoys poetry not loving this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars thoughtful and memorable, 27 Oct. 2013

This review is from: Matterhorn (Paperback)
His voice is mature and thoughtful and he really reaches out to his readers. I read 'What it is like to go to war' first and was so impressed by him, I read this also. I found him through reading 'The Yellow Birds' and they are all stunningly good works although clearly not always easy given the subject matter. You are in very safe hands is what I feel about Karl Marlantes; he comes from the human aspect, not from political bias or from any emotion he is still trying to work through. He is offering a very unusual gift to others via the medium of this work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugely enjoyable and informative, 27 Oct. 2013

I first heard extracts on the radio and found out about her from there. Her poetry is decisive and funny and very stimulating. Her prose is all of those things and this book has so much interesting information. I can not imagine anyone not enjoying her voice and her research.

He is such a masterful writer. The poetry is all you would expect of him. Not always immediately accessible but if you enjoy poetry, this is a must have.

This review is from: Beloved (Mass Market Paperback)
A terrific novel. A very forceful read, poetic and passionate. Difficult in parts as one of the main themes is slavery, but I learnt much from it in this respect. She is Nobel Laureate so expect the best and you will not be disappointed.

I have just been advised to build up my upper arms by my osteopath. This is just the job, I have the smallest one and just do a few minutes night and morning and am improving nicely. Will soon need the next one up! Perfect for my requirements.

4.0 out of 5 stars A comfort read., 27 Oct. 2013

It did not quite live up to what I expected from what I had read about it. But an enjoyable comfort read. It made me cry in parts so it must have moved me. Some real gems in there.
