    1. This is undoubtedly a well written collection, filled with wonderful imagery and crunchy language However, it doesn t risk its heart I can t recall any poems getting under the skin rather, it was satisfied with simply seeing it As I m into emotive work, I can t wholeheartedly recommend it, but I will probably read bits of it again in order to pilfer some of the ways Farley puts words together.

    2. The Dark Film is written in very clear, simple, lucid language It s an easy read I enjoyed not having to dip into a dictionary or Google names of things and this might be why I felt this book had a lovely flow to it even though it covers a very wide range of topics.Paul Farley often likes to startle the reader by opening a poem with an unusual, sometimes bizarre, image This is what grabs your attention and draws you into the poem initially The poem Brent Crude begins Each one of us could fit ins [...]

There is a long standing rule in show business that you should never open with the headliner While I enjoyed much of this collection, nothing in the book could come close to the jolt delivered by the first poem The Power is a sensational piece of work That said, this is a thrilling book of poetry and Farley is finding a consistent and engaging personal voice, one that can look back neither in anger nor nostalgia And as a cheeky contribution to this year s Jubilee celebrations, I also quite enjoy [...]

    4. This was my last PBS choice, and though it arrived a little while back, I d not had time to really read it So glad I have now, though, as I very much enjoyed it I m left with several memorable images, and am especially taken with the short poem Moles A small volume but packed with good stuff.

    5. an absolutely stunning work, the poems are so incredibly evocative, or perhaps that should be invocative, that even the ones that don t describe sounds or music, seem to conjure, it is among the best collections that i ve ever read.

    6. Just excellent Evocative, satisfying and approachable My first time reading Paul Farley s work, and I will go back for .

    7. Love his poetry, a couple of really humorous pieces in here A Thousand Lines and a real sense of time and place captured.

    8. Like the bloke, like his radio pieces bought the book to take on holiday, I like the poems Going back to them again and again to just read one or even a snippet that has stuck in my head.
