Terry Pratchett recommended it, as he should because it is a great book, smooth to read and whimsical. A rollicking read, saturated from start to finish with an ironic vocabulary which adds a shine to other, more upfront, demonstrations of wit. It seems unlikely that you, or anyone else has, or will read it without reaching for the dictionary. Do not be misled, the Latin doesn’t slow it down rather, it exaggerates one of the plentiful nuggets of humour. Follow Earnest through his adventures in the, hopefully Late, Paleolithic period. Don’t read too fast though, it might all be over too soon.
