18 Down, 34 To Go

Eats, Shoots & Leaves is a book that had potential to be great. The premise, exposing grammatical errors and instructing the public in a witty, chatty manner, had me hoping for the best. Unfortunately, I found the humor in the book forced at times, and the chatty dialog often rambling. It's not a bad read, and at times it is a bit humorous, but at most I'd give the book two stars out of four.

My next book is Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation, by Joseph J. Ellis. Many thanks go to Lauren for the suggestion. I am definitely in the mood for some political biography.

May I humbly suggest "Lapsing Into a Comma"?
