Love the poems from my school days and beyond!

What did you love best about The Nation's Favourite Poems?

I remember when they were voted for and have to concur with the number one and most of my favourites were way up there.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

John Nettles performing "If" was very moving.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Poetry is very moving and I had to read a lot of it at school so it was great to hear it again, I have the full tapes but having this abridged version for my Kindle is great.

Any additional comments?

Its often hard to get stuff from my home country on Kindle so this was a nice surprise. I would love to see more stuff available for Kindle. Real copies are so yesterday, actually I have no more room to store them!
