The Alexandria Quartet: Justine, Balthazar, Mounto&hellip by Lawrence Durrell
4.0 out of 5 stars Less than impressive, July 30 2014
Several aspects of Durrell's style depend upon typography -- these are totally lost on the Kindle. The "mere" text is preserved.
George Bernard Shaw's Collected Works by George Bernard Shaw
George Bernard Shaw's Collected Works by George Bernard Shaw
3.0 out of 5 stars Sparse collection, May 31 2014
What's here is fine. Four of Shaw's five novels. What happened to "Immaturity"? About ten times as much of Shaw is not here. No plays. No politics. No musical nor dramatic criticism. Collected fiddlesticks!
Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant? by Roz Chast
Funny. Tragic. Heartwarming. Horrifying. Hilarious. Familiar. Seductive. Repellent.

You've experienced it; you're appalled by it; you're engrossed by it.

Laugh and cry and sigh and laugh.

Brava, Roz!
