Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elena | 11/16/2013

    " Wow! Short powerful lines are able to convey important concepts and ideas and somehow make them really visual. Impressive. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lara | 8/15/2013

    " At the height of my love affair with the ocean and its giants, I found this book. Stunning photographs and an epic poem written, seemingly, by the whales themselves. A new edition comes with a CD of whalesongs...the completion of a symphony. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue Lyle | 11/8/2012

    " This is a wonderful book if you care about Whales - inspiring and harrowing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 5/21/2011

    " One of the best books we've read so far for this class. I enjoyed the examination of the allegorical levels and why the author placed them in their order. Our professor's hilarious commentary made this book even better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick | 5/16/2011

    " poetry is good every now and then, and this book is an excellent read for that every now and then. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 5/15/2011

    " The medieval religious context is difficult for a modern reader but the imagery... WOW! Dante invented the modern interpretation of Hell! Incredible... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Soli | 5/12/2011

    " I forced myself to read this when I was in my late teens. Maybe there was something lost in the translation but I was not too impressed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 5/8/2011

    " I might have liked this better if I could understand more of the prose, ie. read a book that had the information also. Very hard to get through.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lavinia | 5/5/2011

    " How on earth should I rate this? Going back to the beginning of the 14th century or watching it from an actual perspective? Kickass of a writer this Dante, too bad I'm not into lengthy epic poetry. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adrian | 5/2/2011

    " My rating refers to the Longfellow translations. It's old and beautiful. Other translations modernise the text too much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 BookWurm Tin* | 5/1/2011

    " Spine tingling! Ginising ang dugu ko ng librong ito! Parang magppaka bait nako simula ngayon! UHM! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yair | 4/26/2011

    " I'm giving 4 stars to this Sean O'Brien translation/edition. It's fairly bare bones and sparse (no side-by-side Italian, minimal notes, etc.) but I found it a more approachable and perhaps purer version than the Pinsky and Longfellow translations I also recently peeked at. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 4/24/2011

    " Vey clever, very hard work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Travis | 4/16/2011

    " The most beautiful translation of the Inferno that I have read. "
