Thank you for putting the Pet Shop Boys in my mind. Tom Send a noteboard - 19/02/2011 02:23:12 AM
I clicked on the review specifically because of that song.

I stayed to see what the book was actually about. It's one of those things I'm not sure if I want to actually read (like Zola's Rougon-Macquart ).

It sounds awfully dry, though. In any event it's not something I'm likely to read anytime soon. Too much German and French literature (and philosophy/political thought - I just ordered von Clausewitz, vom Krieg ).
Political correctness is the pettiest form of casuistry.

ἡ δὲ κἀκ τριῶν τρυπημάτων ἐργαζομένη ἐνεκάλει τῇ φύσει, δυσφορουμένη, ὅτι δὴ μὴ καὶ τοὺς τιτθοὺς αὐτῇ εὐρύτερον ἢ νῦν εἰσι τρυπώη, ὅπως καὶ ἄλλην ἐνταῦθα μίξιν ἐπιτεχνᾶσθαι δυνατὴ εἴη. – Procopius

No, but that's fairly amusing. *NM* - 19/02/2011 11:35:52 PM 596 Views
