Read full description of the books:Marco Polo wrote this book for goldfish.
At the beginning of almost every paragraph he states “I will now tell you” and by the end he will then say “I have now told you.” I mean it’s truly helpful guidance. I never would have figured that out myself…..I’m so glad he took the time to reassure me as I went along. Who did he think would read his works, simpletons and those with memory impairments? That’s the only explanation for such a patronising way of writing. Here's a lovely quote just to show you what I mean:
"Now I have told you about this. So next I will tell you about some other wonderful things"
There are so many like this, so, so many. So let me tell you about them. They're bad. I have now told you about them. Let me tell you about some other things. Other things look good. I have now told you about other things. So lets talk about something else. Something else looks good like other things. I have now further told you about other things. I have now told you about something else. I will now go on to talk about horses.
Sure, there may be some great historical detail in here or so I’m told. But I just couldn’t get over the infuriating writing. It was terrible, dry and repetitive. He does this throughout the work. It’s almost like he is patting you on the back as you read and saying “go on, carry on. You get this fine. See, here’s another paragraph where I tell you the same thing again. See? It’s easy. Well done reader.” And then he starts talking about unicorns; yes, unicorns. So, that just gets rid of all credibility. How can anyone trust a word this man said? He probably knew at the time that nobody would bother to prove him wrong, so he just shoved it in there for the fun of it. Either that or he was so stupid that he couldn’t tell apart a rhino from mythical horse with a horn.
Penguin Little Black Classic- 16
The Little Black Classic Collection by penguin looks like it contains lots of hidden gems. I couldn’t help it; they looked so good that I went and bought them all. I shall post a short review after reading each one. No doubt it will take me several months to get through all of them! Hopefully I will find some classic authors, from across the ages, that I may not have come across had I not bought this collection.
