Our customer reviews

I'm studying this book at the moment at school, and I think the poems in this book are amazing. I usually hate books I study at school, but this book is an exception :) I read the poems I like over and over again, and managed to memorize lots of them! I'm thinking of keeping the book even after the exams! Recommended!show more
