    "The first thing that jumped out at me about The Reason for Flowers was that it had no illustrations. It's hard for me to fathom that someone wrote a book about flowers that did not include a single picture. Don't get me wrong, I found the subject matter interesting, but still."

    "I think this book sounds like an interesting read that does a good job of addressing the topic. It sounds like a romantic adventure throughout Napoleonic France and other parts of Europe that covers different cultural floriography norms in fascinating detail. Although this topic may not be for everyone, this book appears to do an admiral job of explaining the material and keeping the reader interested."

    "I'm not much of a flowers person, but this book actually got me interested in the topic. Although i do have to say that the jargon the book uses can get kind of confusing at some points, it was still a decent read."

    "This would be a great book for beginners because it throws a bit of erotica into learning about botany, which can never hurt. However it may be offensive for some who are easily offended. Amazon has the book and a great description of it on their site and how plants can be labeled by their sexual features."

    "I'm really into floriography lately. I think it's so neat that flowers have had different meanings to each culture throughout history, and it's so interesting to learn about them! Kate Greenaway's Language of Flowers is a very handy list of these flowers with illustrations that really give it a rustic feel. Great!"
