I was really looking forward to reading this book of essays about reading and books by Anne Fadiman, the author of At Large and At Small. I was slightly disappointed; this one wasn't nearly as good as the other. Some of the essays were interesting, but they weren't as witty and humorous. I still enjoyed it, the first essay was particularly good, and it was kind of interesting. The book design was nice, though slightly smaller than I expected it to be. If you liked At Large and At Small, you should definitely try this one. You can tell that it's the same person's writing style, and I did like it. But definitely read At Large and At Small first, or read this one, and be pleasantly surprised by At Large and At Small.
