Never Finished: "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" by Lynne Truss

Never Finished: Eats, Shoots and Leaves: the zero tolerance approach to punctuation by Lynne Truss, 2004, 1592400876.

I chose this for the Men's Book Club. I got behind on my reading schedule and started it late. I did not have time to finish the book before the meeting but intended to finish afterward. Since the book was piled on my desk for the past month and a half I can outwardly say, "Screw those good intentions. I have other things to do."

Parts of this were interesting. The fanaticism of some people's love for commas and apostrophes is not disturbing but is definitely odd. There was not enough for the book group to discuss since no one in the group is very obsessive about grammar.
