Our reviewer called this entertaining surprise bestseller 'Obsessive, entertaining, passionate, this book is a delight and a must-read for anyone interested in the future – and the past - of the language.'

Reviewing it in the Observer, Nigel Williams said it was: 'more than a witty, elegant and passionate book that should be on every writer's shelf. Well. Done. Lynne!!!!'
