The Polysyllabic Spree

polysyllabic spreeThe Polysyllabic Spree: A Hilarious and True Account of One Man’s Struggle with the Monthly Tide of the Books He’s Bought and the Books He’s Been Meaning to Read by Nick Hornby, 3/5

Hornby’s modern taste in literature meant that I did not recognize most of the authors/books he mentioned, which limited my enjoyment of this collection of essays.  Luckily, though, Hornby is reasonably witty and comfortingly honest about his shortcomings as a reader (one of which is forgetting almost everything he’s read), so the book was still reasonably entertaining.
