  (page 123 of 352)
"I was enjoying this until I got to the chapter about the holy house that goes flying about the world. Is the author deluded enough to believe all this religious claptrap? I can't discern any hint of irony in his writing, so perhaps he does. I don't know whether I want to continue with this book, as who wants to waste their time reading the words of an idiot?"
