Now that I’ve been reading several books on writing, I’ve come to the conclusion that books on writing should either be funny, matter of fact or zen-like.
Eats, Shoots & Leaves is hilarious from page one to page 204. You half expect the bibliography to be funny as well. The book reads easy and there is no burden that the very idea of punctuation could bring you. Perhaps, the punctuation vigilante extraordinaire in Lynne Truss thought that humor was the only way to make a book on punctuation a bestseller. Three million copies sold and many more by the minute, this book changes the way you look at the little squiggles in your sentences, the things you do away with while whatsapping and texting.
Punctuation is important as you can see.
