The I Read The I Grew Irritated And Lukewarm ToI read the I grew irritated and lukewarm to the author and the book My most hated thing is unnecessary repetitions and this occurs often in this book It insults my intelligence to keep finding the same reworded paragraph reinserted all over the book Plus it gives the whole thing a padded feel which was on my mind freuently the I got into this book The font is big and the pages themselves are rather small so with the repetitions and rather pointless and stupid imaginings of 1518 I feel like the author was trying to The Battle over Marriage draw out this book I also have hit my lifetime uota of the word cavalieresueAll these repetitions and well maybe the bishop wasn t in town thatay but if he was he would probably would have looked at his flock which might have looked something like this and perhaps would have said This is obviously not a Teaching History for Justice direct uote and me making fun of the style but if the author took out all these possibilities and oh by the way most of the townsfolk probably were missing teeth moments book would have been much much shorter Which was not needed because he had plenty of material to work with if he wasn t focusing on random things Also he needed to not be apologizing for his bizarre subject matter It s why we re reading this book to begin with I realize that the loss of life from uncontrollable spasticancing is significantly less than plagues or war It seems like he was almost embarrassed by his subject matter and kept wandering on off topic material like the Peasant War or the attempted uprisings in the countryside which really Laughing to Keep from Dying didn t have that much too with anything I thought the ending was actually the most interesting part of the whole book and how the INTERRACIAL ROMANCE dancing plague is not soifferent from stress Stolen Years disorders today Also thought it was fascinating how the ways people snap under pressure have changed over time This should have been the focus of the book since it was obvious that his source material for the 1518 and theozens of other 1100s 1500s choreomania was rather slim One thing Throughout the #BOOK HE MENTIONS HE IS FOCUSING ON THE 1518 #he mentions he is focusing on the 1518 since that was the last major outbreak and then at the very end of book mentions the 1863 Madagascar time where thousands Sarah T - Portrait of a Teenage Alcoholic danced because they thought they were haunted by the spirit of the evilead ueen Ranavalona This interests me endlessly since whenever the gruesome Female Caligula pops up in either fiction or non fiction things LA Mujer En Puerto Rico don t turn out well in a bizarre way for ever.
