That's Not English: Britishisms, Americanisms, and What Our English Says About Us - Erin Moore, Lynne Truss

What is all the fuss about? I can't believe that I actually paid over $20 for this slim little volume. I don't know what I was expecting but this rambling reminisce of an American book editor living in England was not it. Just as she gets to the meat of the her thread of thought, she veers off in another direction--like a kid with ADD who has trouble staying on task.


I bought the hardcover because I thought I might want to make notes in the margins but there were no brilliant insights to even remark upon. I should have gotten the Audible edition; if would have been cheaper.  If I can find the receipt, this one is going back to the bookstore.


I give this one 2.75 stars -- barely.
