    So far i have seen 10 reviews in swedish newspapers and they are mostly positive, good or very good.What a relief!!!!!!!!!!!

    I agree with those in PL papers that saying DC is a work of her ‘maturity’ is a bit wrong, ‘maturity’ is not an appriopriate word for Miss Bush now because her work has always been considered a bit over-her-age and mature already.

    Nice read, Peter! Thanks!

    Especially knowing it might be our last! 😉

    btw I heard Kate being called ‘modern Shakespeare’ and ‘the greatest poet of our times’ on the yesterday’s top 20 Kate Bush Phoenix Radio show. Reading that the press calls her ‘Catherine the Great’ (like in one of the articles above) is even more amusing! :)))
