The Most Expensive Chap Book I've Ever Seen
on May 21, 2006
The book description is 32 pages, but I counted only 10 pages (printed singe-sided) with one poem on each page so that makes ten poems. And this goes for $9.95 not including shipping and taxes. Hmmm....
I like much of Maya Angelou's works, but I could barely read through all the poems, and consquently the entire book (which took all of 5 minutes). The poems were not particularly good, elegant, or insightful.
Well, I'm just plain shocked that Random House and Maya decided that ten short poems constituted a book.
