For nearly every book I have picked up, where I was whilst reading it comes back to me easily. Where the reading (or trying to read) this book took place makes me laugh now. I cannot recall any shuddering passages of literate genius, but I can remember the freshly-flattened skunk on the side of the 99 just beyond my walking path. Expecting a grand and sweeping story of science was too much for me to not be disappointed, but something tells me I should go back to judging a book by its publisher. I don't boast extraordinarily wondrous spelling skills (any eagle eye could see all my reviews cannot refute that). But I do know when the author should cut the reader some slack, and use of the comma is not unheard of.
