Top critical review
Reviewing books is so much harder..
Reviewed in the United States on June 1, 2019
I can appreciate all the wonderfully written reviews of this book..I really can. I have wanted this book for probably ten years now and when I got a gift card for my birthday, I decided to finally treat myself to it.
However, and so sadly, I am returning it. It is not at ALL what i expected. Although I appreciate the authors poetic and scientific style of writing; her knowledge and sentiments, I was looking for beautiful pictures and learning the many types of mosses, etc. I will simply chalk it up to my having a somewhat false expectation and therefore my own disappointment. I would still love to find that book, wherever it may be. It will be the perfect coffee table book, when I do. In the meantime, if you are not wanting any photos, beautiful scenery, and pictures showing the many types of mosses; but instead prefer this, I'm sure you will be as delighted as the other reviewers. I still applaud her style for what it is.
