Whaa ?

Good idea presented with such incredibly labored prose, I couldn't bring myself to continue reading. So I tried listening instead.

Huh? WTF? This is easily the most abstruse and pretentious writing ever to find a publisher. It must be some kind of literary hoax between the author, the publisher, the critics, and all the English teachers in the world, a joke.

Anyone??
