5.0 out of 5 stars Life-enhancing, 6 Feb. 2016

A first-class translation, which reads easily and naturally; a well formatted text; a gripping and immersive novel.
Don't hesitate: Get it, read it, live it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff, 29 Jan. 2016

Seeds are recommended as part of a healthy diet, and Pumpkin is one of the most scrumptious.
Add the usual reliable quality from Meridian, and this is a must.

2.0 out of 5 stars Iconoclast required., 6 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very good edition of the novel. It is well formatted, free from typos, with interesting introductory material, and excellent footnotes, which are easily accessible. The translation reads well, and does not call attention to itself. All in all, if you want this novel, this edition is recommended.
Unfortunately, I disliked the novel itself. I found it long winded, the characters unsympathetic, with many protracted episodes, tedious in themselves, and holding up the development of the story.
It seems to me that this novel is a cultural icon, with an undeserved reputation, like Moby Dick, or Citizen Kane.
I was glad to finish it, and it now resides in the Cloud, never to be seen again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't play it again, Uncle Sam, 2 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this book some time in the Sixties, and thought it a good read.
Having now looked at it again, my opinion has changed completely. I now find it very poorly written, long-winded, and with an underlying ethos strongly reminiscent of the Saturday Evening Post/Norman Rockwell falsely cosy view of the US.
Drury was a staunch conservative, and it shows. I cannot abide his weltanschauung.


Mozart : String Quartets Nos 14 - 23
Mozart : String Quartets Nos 14 - 23

4.0 out of 5 stars Sock it to me, Wolfie., 25 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Performance and recording are very good, certainly good enough to allow the listener to forget about them and simply enjoy the music. At the price, not to be missed.
