5.0 out of 5 stars highly interesting book, 17 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Story of English in 100 Words (Paperback)
I bought this for one of my sons, who is very interested in language/words and how they have developed. I started to read this before he could get his hands on it. It's in small chapters so is great to read in little bites - our copy has been on the window sill in the loo for some weeks and actually is a very good book for reading in those circumstances. Sorry if David Crystal is insulted by this but no denigration of his book is intended as loo reading has to be interesting, humourous and brief and The Story of English in 100 Words is all of those and more.
