2.5 rating. i'll give it 3 stars based on the subject matter, however, i could. not. finish. it.

it was (and is) absolutely fascinating subject matter, but written so poorly! a ton of short, declarative sentences in places that made it a struggle to get through. it should have been written as a juvenile non-fiction book. with pictures. and half the crappy prose cut out.

Virginia Aww shame, I was thinking about reading this (or, you know, adding it to the list)

kimberly well, you never know, you might enjoy it! others definitely did - and the subject matter is good. i just couldn't get past her writing.
