it was amazing
Read in December, 2011

This was a fun, light, and easy read, especially after finishing a novel that was both dense and over 700 pages long. This book was a delightfully lighthearted look at a subject that should be lighthearted: the use of euphemism and how society dictates what subjects and terminology is considered taboo.

There isn't that much more to say - there needn't be any plot to drive this book or anything like that, so it's pretty straightforward. The author clearly knows more than enough about the subject and presents it in a straightforward but comedic way that really sucks a reader in.
