5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great little book to keep in your knapsack and dip ..., November 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great little book to keep in your knapsack and dip into. Though compact, it has most of the chestnuts you'd expect in an anthology of monstrous verse, from "The Kraken" to "Jabberwocky," from Grendel to the Grinch. There are also a lot of poets and monsters I'd never heard of before, which has made it something of a treasure trove, for me, at least, and a number of living or relatively modern poets, like A. E. Stallings, sit very well with the old masters. Well worth the price if you want to be amused, bemused, or other muse-like activities.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like your poetry to be spare and emotionally restrained, October 31, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you like your poetry to be spare and emotionally restrained, perhaps even a tad mournful or gloomy, then I doubt you'll like this book, which wears its heart on its sleeve. I like it, though, and keep coming back to it, even though I usually fall into the "tad mournful or gloomy" camp myself. These unabashedly romantic poems are so well crafted and musical it's a pleasure to read them out loud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, but not cold, July 28, 2012
This review is from: The Harvest (Paperback)
Something always seems to temper Holt's rather bleak landscapes in The Harvest: so that after he's taken you through failed marriages told from several points of view, a friend's betrayal, an avuncular pedophile, a stalker, a psychiatric facility filled with troubled, neglected children, and a mass murder, among other circles of modern hell, he'll leave you feeling lucky to have come across this book.

"The Stalker's Villanelle," the chilling account of a man who's about to kill his former wife, has already won critical acclaim and is probably going to enjoy a long life in the anthologies. Of the sonnets, of which there are more than a dozen, there are a number of standouts including "Take Me," the heart-rending but clear-eyed account of a social worker's visit with troubled boys, and "Our Murder," about the details and "sensible absurdities" of divorce, which begins, "The deadliest smile that ever scaled a face", and ends: "Our talking now is just a hollow show; / We murdered conversation weeks ago."

There is light verse here as well and Holt is sometimes very funny, most of all when he's making fun of himself, as in "Godot Revisited." But it's the surgical strikes he performs on himself and others you'll remember longest, I suspect. I bought this book twice because it got soaked in my backpack during a storm, and I knew I'd want it around to dip into now and then. It's dark, yes, but not cold. A fine book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware -- only 1 disc of 2 disc set, November 26, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Kink Kronikles (Audio CD)
I love the Kinks, and would give this a 5 star rating for the CD itself, had I received what I ordered, but the advertising on Amazon.com is deceptive: when I ordered "The Kink Kronikles" the image announced it was "a specially-priced 2 disc set", but what I actually got was only disc 2 of that set. Grrr.

1.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE -- This software is NOT compatible with Mac, May 19, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I downloaded 4000 Fonts because it was listed under 'Mac platform,' and the 'Systems Requirments' section says: 'Mac'. However, under 'See more systems requirements,' you find that the program is compatible with ' Windows® 2000, Windows® XP, Windows® Vista, Windows® 7.'

I learned of this after I tried to install the program, and got the following message: 'Cannot be run in DOS mode.'

I feel that Amazon.com is misleading consumers into buying and downloading a program that cannot run in Mac. BEWARE. Don't waste your money.
