Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – My Dearest Father| Review

Author: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Type: Non-Fiction

Page Count/Review Word Count: 60

Rating 3.5/5



This was mostly interesting because of the relationship that Mozart had with his father, which is expressed here in the letters that they sent to each other. It gets sad when it covers his mother’s death.

Graham Greene - Collected Essays

Graham Greene – Collected Essays


There’s only so much I can really say about this because this is literally a collection of Graham Greene’s essays on a variety of topics. Some of them are pretty dull and difficult for me, as a modern reader, to really understand the context. Others of them are super insightful, particularly the essays in the section where he deals with his thoughts on other well-known authors.

I can’t really recommend this if you’re not a Graham Greene fan, because part of the beauty of this is that it teaches the reader a little more about what his life was like and how the world around him related back to the books that he wrote. But if you are a Graham Greene fan then the chances are that you’ll get a lot out of this, even if it is pretty heavy going.

I read this as my “bedtime book” after reading Graham Greene’s letters, and I must say that the essays make for better reading. The letters were pretty much introduced as fragments without any real context, which made it difficult for me as a modern reader to understand what he was talking about. There’s no such problem here, which made the book much more enjoyable.

All in all, you should have a good idea already as to whether this is something that you might be interested in. I’m glad I got to it.
