Is Reginald over the hill?,
This review is from: A Cure for All Diseases (Paperback)
I totally agree with B. Cooper and his/her comments. Is Reginald too over the hill? Mebbe he is confusing e-mail with phone text writing to some extent e.g. the use of numerals instead of letters.
He obviously hasn't noticed that electronic short-hand usually runs to lack of capitalisation since you have to press the shift key (and more using a phone) - has he not noticed that the use of the apostrophe key does not?
The use of dashes instread of inverted commas for dialogue as well as emphasis and pauses is also very confusing - and irritating. One wonders which 'liberal' university would have staff that would even assess assigments, let alone gran somebody a qualification for presenting academic work in this ungrammatical fashion.
I admit that it has been thirty years since I finished university, but even then it also needed at least six years of study to become a 'pshychologist'. The Head Psycollologist' at the convalescent home 'Avalon' in this book must have done at least this and a PHD as Dr being used as a title is usually only given to medical docotrs and obviously psychiatrists who are also medically trained doctors. Hill doesn't make this very clear either.
