it was ok
bookshelves: did-not-finish
Read from November 14 to 20, 2010

I have too many other books to read to suffer through this. I was reeled in by the premise (history of artificial light!) but was turned off by the excessive history (I wanted more science). The author included tons of quotes from various historical peoples (famous and otherwise) and I'm just not into that. Quote heavy + science light = moving on!!
