What We See When We Read - Peter Mendelsund

This took me a couple of years to get through. Not that I wanted to savor each page and each thought because it brought some new insight but because every time I picked it up to read a few more pages, the only thought that came to mind was, "Emperor's New Clothes." Sorry; I didn't like it. I did not find it to be brilliant or any of the other things the blurbs on the cover said. It was just not the kind of literary analysis that I could get into.


All in all: Two stars.
