it was amazing
bookshelves: works-of-genius

The organization of this book is stupid, but otherwise, I really liked it. Yes, there are sections that are a bit tedious (one reviewer said it's due to being the earlier stuff, which I understand), but still really entertaining. Also, it includes the first ever Myles column!

Also, it deserves five stars for the hilarious face-off between Myles and Reverend Alfred O'Rahilly somewhere near the end. Relevant excerpt: "I was reading Kubla Khan in the library of the dower house in Santry Great Park the other evening and the thought came to me that we might call the Doctor merely Alph the Sacred Raver." Golden.
