Dense, but interesting. What I like most is the fact that it was written in 1970- the style's totally out of the 1800s at least, and that's pretty impressive. Also, there were some hilariously inappropriate jokes to lighten up the occasional sluggishness.

R.S. Carter I agree, very impressive writing. To write with that much technicality AND knowledge of time period linguistics - amazing.
