Enjoyable, even funny, on the whole, but one annoyance
November 10, 2015
I am finding the book interesting. The number of expressions I was already familiar with--perhaps thanks to having grown up in New England?-- surprised me. I also recognized with pleasure quite a few that I had become familiar with by reading British literature. The reason for my giving the book only 4 stars is that, in explaining some British words, it often annoyingly mentions others that a foreigner (e.g., me) is not likely to know. That would be all right if you could find those terms elsewhere in the book, but No. They appear to be slang and should fit right in, but the author has chosen not to enlighten the reader.
