I'm going to buy anyway, but NOT FAIR!
The sample doesn't even get through the Table of Contents! It would have been nice to be able to read at least a sample of one of her poems!
I'm only rating three stars, because I've not been able to read anything and I am only barely familiar with her work.

Szymborska wows us time and again!
Szymborska views life through her own spectacles and creates juxtapositions that we wouldn't normally see. I guess that is what is so profound in her writings. This book is no exception. She takes us on a ride to places we wouldn't dream of going, and always brings us home safely. I am inspired by her words, by her tongue in cheek humor, by her pointing out the ridiculous in modern life. I am especially fond of the poem "Teenager," in which she addresses herself as a teen looking up at the rest of her life from her current perspective near the end of it. She is a treasure that everyone can enjoy!
