I enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone interested in a fascinating story.
The full title of this book is The Professor and the Madman, A Tale of Murder, Insanity and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary.
Two, it is not a story to put into a book because of the fact that it isn't long enough.
the description sounded more interesting than it really was. A quick read and got it at a good price so no harm done.Published 13 days ago by SiebyFix
Definitely worth reading. Winchester's approach was as interesting as the topic. Who would have thought that reading about the creation of a dictionary could be so enjoyable?Published 15 days ago by MKS
