O.K. I went to see the author of the insanely long book, The Instructions, at the Oak Park Library last night. Then I bought the book. Jason from the Book Table assured me that it was readable and interesting but as I gaze at the enormous tome I now own, I think he was just trying to sell books.
My goal is to write a review of this book. I'll let you know how I progress through it. I am already having problems with the first chapter. I've stumbled over "twetched", "gooze", "bance" and "flaved". I generally don't like books that do that to the English language but I'm trying to keep an open mind. Stay tuned.
