Reviews by Lidia Kierc

With Fire and Sword

by Henryk Sienkiewicz

Yes, a 'brilliant historical romance', but utterly trashed by the inept, lumpen translation and appalling typographical errors. If you are unable to cross-refer to the original or to think laterally, reading Curtin's effort can become an exercise in superhuman perseverance. Badly done! as Mr Knightly would have said.
