This review is from: Tyrannosaurus Lex: The Marvelous Book of Palindromes, Anagrams, and Other Delightful and Outrageous Wordplay (Paperback)
quite interesting,but felt at times it was a bit over elaborate and sometimes just went on too long. Nonetheless I thought it well worth the money and an entertaining read

This review is from: Tyrannosaurus Lex: The Marvelous Book of Palindromes, Anagrams, and Other Delightful and Outrageous Wordplay (Paperback)
