it was ok

100 pages fell out of this book in one big clump, vanished into the papery chaos of my house, and did not resurface again. I feel ok about this. It was an educational read, but one which felt really, really educational - the book equivalent of lima beans. The most enjoyable parts came when the author let loose with some venomous comment about Soviet Russia or why we should even bother to teach the masses to read, as they'll waste their literacy on crappy books. Despite the bile, it gave a human touch to an otherwise monotonous read.
