Wow, I read most of this book searching for a good point at which to abandon it altogether. Well written, by a talented author, but what a bore! Felt like someone gave her a list of unrelated subjects and challenged her to combine them all in one book:
bees and beetles
Peer Gynt

I did pick up a list of new vocabulary words, though, so I guess that's something... :)
(epicene, aleatory, periplum, viridian)
