Country Girl (2013)
language
English
3.46 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: A self-indulgent stroll through the cluttered memories of expatriate Irish writer Edna O'Brien. Her childhood years are interesting enough but she quickly grows up, marries young to the wrong man, of course, and becomes part of the London swinging sixties set. Then we are treat...

review 1: I guess the title sums up this book better than anything else can. It's about human beings. Not some who are sinners and some who are saints but all of us who are both saints and sinners at the same time. I love the way the author gets right under the skin of her characters; we t...

review 1: Her memoir is a pastiche of remembered moments strung together like a rosary, delivering the same stunned wonder as her fiction. "We strolled over to where the horses stood, near-motionless, like circus apparitions. They started then to come toward me...Her flanks glistened, he...

language
English
3.22 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Among the worst books I have ever read. The text is rambling, disjointed, and filled with grammatical errors and just-plain-ugly verbiage. I am a fan of Lord Byron's work, but this book was so bad that I actually found myself disliking both Byron and the author just a few pages...
Byron Apaixonado (2011)
language
English
3.22 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Óptimo pretexto para conhecer a personalidade complexa, voraz, brutal, excessiva, obscura e muitas vezes cruel de um dos maiores vultos da literatura mundial. Edna O'Brien é mestre na separação entre realidade e lenda, baseando a obra na vasta troca de correspondência entre Byron...
