Verklaringen
aulsmith: It reads more like notes than a novel. I don't think I got past page 20.
merrystar : I like parts of this much better than others, but I did finish it.
ahef1963: I was given a lovely edition of this book by my mother when I was a teenager, but it is more shelf ornament than book I have read.

PoetVictoria: I liked the idea of the book, but the book itself was relentless and repetitive. I am glad I read some of it, though. Interesting real life stuff.

Verklaringen
aulsmith: I read the first chapter and found the stuff they borrowed for Star Trek II. I had a friend who wrote three university papers having only read the first chapter.
merrystar : list duplicate
ahef1963: Have never read past the first chapter or so, despite several attempts.

Cariola: Probably the worst, most pretentious pieces of Shakespearean criticism I've ever read. Applies pop psychology to Hamlet.

aulsmith: I was somewhat shocked at the beginning and put it down. Now I've read so much biography, I'm not sure I'd enjoy the original.
