The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation by Lynne Truss


My review

rating: 2 of 5 stars
This was a hard book to get through. I persevered. The writer overuses a very dry humor and didn’t let up to the point where it became a constant haranguing drone. The tone got old after a few chapters. She would have done well to employ it in a few places throughout the book.

The reason I stuck with it had to do with the definitive lists of when to use apostrophes, commas, ellipses, dashes, etc which I found to be quite useful. I also found that her points about the changes in the way we use language, and punctuation in particular, to be quite interesting.
