I am such a pedant for spelling, punctuation and grammar that I really enjoyed reading this modern-day guide to all aspects of the English language. I could also tell that Gyles Brandreth is very fussy about English, as he talks at great length about his own pet peeves.
At times, this was laugh-out-loud funny, even though at times it felt a bit too long-winded and I found that I had to concentrate a lot and read carefully. One of the funniest moments has invented text acronyms for older people. I also learned a few things that I didn't know, which surprised me a lot at times; apparently I've been getting a few things wrong.
It also made me realise that I ought to read Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss in full.
Next book: Into the Water (Paula Hawkins)
