Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Etymologicon: A Circular Stroll through the Hidden Connections of the English Language (Kindle Edition)
I love anything to do with etymology anyway so I am instantly biased, but I really love the way this book was written...rather like the way I think. You are led on a etymological journey springing from one word to the next. Each new word and origin is as fascinating as the last. There are quite a few laughs in there too. All in all an excellent book, easy to read and a constant source of "What?" "Really?" and "Aha!" effects! The only negative thing about reading this book was not being able to remember all of what was read!
