I remember the afternoon I was on this wonderful website, trawling through its pages, without any real purpose, actually, but perhaps with a secret hope of chancing upon a good French book. If the truth be told, this trick, if one may call it one, has always worked for me like a treat: I log into the website, once again allow myself to get carried away by its content and beauty, breeze through the fetching smorgasbord of books, stop short at one that has caught my fancy and end up buying it. The days that follow the buy are of immense anticipation and even a soupçon of anxiety: how soon will I get it? In what condition will it be? etc. But, then again, when all is said and done, there's certainly no doubting the quality, just as their range, of the books at Amazon.co.uk.
And so it was that that particular afternoon, I happened to come across this ostensibly modest, little book on French grammar: Mille et Un Points by Neil Creighton. Don't let its appearance deceive you, though, for it's an atomic bomb of a book, packed with such linguistic power and magic that it's bound to make any reader of any degree of scholarship or proficiency in the language possessive of it, ''unletgoably'' posseissive, at that. What's more, this quasi-booklet also doubles as a handy ready reckoner which, in my opinion, therefore is best used for revision- for a good brush-up, if you like, whatever the time, situation or occasion. It's a real wonder at all how such a thin book can be so impossibly good, so productive!! The only drawback that is perhaps worth mentioning is that more illustrations explaining each of the grammar topics- more elaboration- would have made noticeable difference to the book.
I, however, recommend this book very highly; this is for any avid and sincere learner of French grammar and the language at large.
