Miss Lichter's book misleading and disappointing
on August 16, 1999
I was greatly disappointed in this book. Over half of the testis spent rudely bashing the modern era. The facts about Victorianlife are such as are already known to the average third-grader. Most unpleasantly, Miss Lichter pollutes the book throughout with rude, UNmannerly accounts of the post-Victorian era, with obscenities, loaded language, and provocative and angry descriptions of the morally bankrupt society we live in today. Were I to wish to read a graceless and cheap account of how depressing today's times are, I should buy a newspaper instead. I am sorry to have learned nothing from this book.
