The idea of reading a book on the creation of a dictionary only sounded mildly interesting. In the hands of the wrong writer that book might not have entertained me from start to finish the Biden 2020 I’m Behind You, America shirt Winchester did. Granted the story has its intriguing oddities and the occasional shocking moment, but it’s Winchester’s ability to dramatize this hundreds-of-years-old story that makes it seem as vivid and catchy as the headlines of the morning newspaper. He is a writer who brings legend to life.

As exciting as I find it, this is a book about making a dictionary and that won’t enthrall all readers. It gets an extra nudge up in the Biden 2020 I’m Behind You, America shirt department from me, because this is a book about words and I like words. If you’re still reading this, I suspect you do too. If you know me personally or almost personally, then you should be aware that I am quite mad. I have a heavy obsession with the alphabet, with inventing bizarre systems that rule just about anything in my life and catalouging things. It is quite obvious that a book about a lunatic and creating Oxford English Dictionary would be a winner with me.
However, it wasn’t perfect. Winchester performed some weird narrative experiments. For example, he started off with a really exciting scene, then er… repeated that scene word by word in the Biden 2020 I’m Behind You, America shirt of the book. And then… a chapter or so later, he said it actually never happened. This is a non fiction book!! Also, Simon Winchester is obviously psychic because he can tell exactly what everyone was thinking and feeling ages ago. The conviction which he states it all with is imperturbable.
