Regarding Don’t Know Much About Mythology by Kenneth Davis

I finished it. There was a point at which I thought I never would, and there was a point at which I thought I never could. But I finished, and now I know lots more than I ever thought I would about mythology. It was interesting, if not exactly my thing. But I have reasons for not recommending it.

As I turned to the last page, I got a papercut. It hurt. And bled. A lot. By then, it was too late not to finish, but the book will go down as one of the most vicious I’ve ever read. I slogged through it, reading almost 100 pages yesterday just to be done . . . and it rewards me by attacking me. On my dinner break. Stay away from this book. It will cut you.

(I’m still bleeding.)

  3. There’s got to be some mythological siginifcance in the book striking back at you for talking so bad about it.

  4. the book could sense your lack of desire, and fought back. its a book about mythology for crying out loud. you’re lucky fire didn’t rain down from the heavens. next time you’re openly talking bad about a book, make sure its about puppies or something. at least in that case, the book would just pee on your floor or something.
