did not like it
bookshelves: library, language-study, 2008, maybe-thesis-read
Read in December, 2008

i'd actually give this a 1.5. there were a few good moments, but overall it was just totally overblown. a book about translation that is inconsistent in how it deals with translations in the text is not really winning my respect. basically, the afterword says everything that's important here in 3 pages instead of 500.
