The Franklins Tale By: Chaucer 14?? Type: Novel
?% : difficult to compare
Review : for me it's incredibly difficult to read. It shows me how today we are casual we are with words. We just throw them down; wheras in his day each word is calculated in a multitude of different ways so that each sentence has incredible depth. He choses them to make them rhyme, show the tone, refer to other well known stories etc.

Brazilian Adventure By: Peter Fleming 1933 Type: Novel
Review : A boys own adventure from 1925 the ill prepared adventurers set off down the Amazon to look for the lost Major Fawcett. I found it a little boring, I suppose if it was fiction the ending would have been more exciting. As it was they went to look , but ran out of supplies so had to turn back. I did read about places I already knew in Brazil.
