And it has arrived safely, thanks Arvores. I loved reading Ovid at school so I'm intrigued!

Journal Entry 3 by wingFifnawing at Voorburg, Zuid-Holland Netherlands on Saturday, February 16, 2019
It was wonderful to meet Ovid again! I quite enjoyed the story but I'm still not decided on whether it felt like Ovid was actually speaking to me. This may have to do with the fact that I never read Ovid in English, so it's difficult to compare. Thanks for sharing!

The book was safely waiting for me at home with Hubby while I was looking after the kids on the seashore.

Journal Entry 6 by wingIcilawing at Nantes, Pays de la Loire France on Sunday, March 31, 2019
I wasn't in the mood for this one. It made me think of the unsettling world we are in now with the Artificial Intelligence lurking in the dark.

I'm waiting for the ok to send from Lamilla who is possibly moving.

Received today.

ETA: The book is telling us the life of Ovid. The language is poetic, but the story wasn't my cup of tea

Thanks Lamilla, I have started it today as I am in a waiting room...

Journal Entry 11 by wingestelle1806wing at Clonsilla, Co. Dublin Ireland on Sunday, May 26, 2019
I enjoyed the story, but found it very difficult to read the style, it took a lot of energy and concentration out of me!!
Ready to fly to Canada, now.

This book is now with me in Canada!

Journal Entry 14 by wingmathgirl40wing at Waterloo, Ontario Canada on Thursday, July 11, 2019
This is a slow-moving, thoughtful story with beautiful writing. Though it's a short book, it took me quite some time to finish. It's definitely not a book to speed through.

Journal Entry 16 by wingmcsarwing at Richmond, British Columbia Canada on Saturday, July 20, 2019
The book has arrived. From the earlier journal entries, I think I need to pick a good time and mood to enjoy this one.

--------------------------------
This is a hard one to rate. The book is beautifully written but it is slow. It is something to be read slowly. There are parts that I really enjoy and that I find thought provoking. They are like a philosophy of life and humanity, of our existence and relationship with nature, very Zen .

Arrived safely. It's next on my reading list.
Although a very short book, it was slow reading. Very beautiful lyrical prose; so glad I had an opportunity to read this one!
