The title does not match the content 1. August 2013
Von Eric Mascarin Perigault - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In short, the marketing of a work includes choosing a title that becomes striking to the reader, but this title should reflect the content of the book. In fact, the author makes a very, very superficial journey on all the books that he had read, but at the end of his reviews he recognizes that he not read two books but not identified those books. It is striking that make this confession right when he writes about the critics who review books without reading they. The only author that makes a deep review is from Jane Austen but not explain why he does that exception. Moreover, apart from revisions are good, the book is full of good details, for example when he says that it costs more to read a book (in economic terms) to buy and so inveterate readers have our shelves full of books we bought but not had time to read them. For him, the best novel ever written is the War and Peace by Tolstoy. No speaks nothing of British books. I think there is an error when Little Red Riding Hood is attributed to the Brothers Grimm when I have understood that it is of Perrault. At the end is a questionnaire of 50 questions I think any scholarly literature professor would approve. He also writes on philosophy and science. It is so entertaining that I read it in one sitting.
