I know I read this. I don't know when but I know I did, so I'd better add it before I forget it entirely.

As carelessly as I use the star ratings, I wouldn't be so unfair as to rate this after, let me think, at least 3 years. But I'd call it about a three. Not as much OED as I would have liked, and rather more murderer...but that's what's attention-grabbing I suppose.
