What a read.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Dr. Johnson's Dictionary: The Extraordinary Story of the Book That Defined the World (Hardcover)
This book is fantastic! Don't we all love it when a previously unheard of author, surfaces to write something extraordinary! I read it on my way across the Atlantic on a cruise, and found it thoroughly enjoyable. I havent read a book so intriguing for a long time, and found it a breath of fresh air to do so. The author, Hitchings is a superb writer; cleray interested in his chosen subject he explores it fully and in an accessible manor. A must read for anyone who likes dictionaries or informative reading.

" cleray interested"..."an accessible manor". Perhaps you ought read the actual dictionary afore you read a book about the dictionary?

"Accessible manor": dictionary definition of "stately home"? Or is it a cryptic crossword clue?
