If you try hard enough, each of these prophecies" is mere hallucination. How people could be stupid enough to believe them is beyond me." ( )
  ShelleyAlberta | Jun 4, 2016 |
Nostradamus wrote such enigmatic quatrains that it's anyone's guess what he meant. Then throw in a translator and who knows what he said? If you like to discover meaning in what could be meaningless, read this book. ( )

I think the predictions are silly, and the interpretations far-fetched; but some of the quatrains are spooky. So as a horror afficionado I enjoyed it! ( )

Book description
From the bestselling author of "Nostradamus: The New Revelations" comes the most complete book ever published on the life and prophecies of the 16th-century French doctor/astrologer. (Penguin Books)
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0517590921, Hardcover)

Tabloid psychics come and go, but the name of the prophet Nostradamus stands like a pillar of granite, even after some 500 years. Henry C. Roberts's translations and interpretations of Nostradamus's Centuries are almost as enduring. First published in 1947 as an attempt to make a complete Centuries book available to the public, the Complete Prophecies of Nostradamus has reached its fourth edition with few revisions. This unabridged, definitive edition with verbatim translations printed side by side with the original Old French is one of the most accurate interpretations available in print.
