Aeschylus - Oresteia

"The murders and background information make it a PG-13."


"This book was TERRIBLE. not only was it so incredibly boring that i would have rather watched paint dry, but it's stupidity amazed me."


"All I have to say is 'Man O Man'!! I thought I would have somewhat of a difficult time reading & understanding this book/play but was definitely up for the challenge. After reading the painful diatribe of the foreword & introduction then the explanation of each of the 3 Parts by the author. I started reading Part I - Agememnon, instantly got very confused and knew I was not going to enjoy reading this type of genre. ABORTED."


GOOD EVENING, GENTLE READER. NOW, ALL OF US LIKE TO SEE A BOOK READ POORLY - THAT'S THE REASON WE'RE HERE: TO LAUGH AT PEOPLE INFERIOR TO OURSELVES, LIKE SCHOOLCHILDREN AND SPEAKERS OF OTHER LANGUAGES. BUT THE UNFORTUNATE THING ABOUT POOR READERS IS THAT THEY DON'T TEND TO READ A GREAT DEAL. OFTEN I FIND MYSELF TRAWLING THROUGH A BOOK'S REVIEWS TO FINISH WITH JUST THREE OR FOUR SUITABLE QUOTES. SO INSTEAD OF UPDATING ONCE EVERY TWO DAYS, I'VE DECIDED TO USE DAYS WHEN I DON'T HAVE A LOT OF TIME TO POST THESE SHORTER ENTRIES. BUT THERE WILL STILL BE MUCH LONGER POSTS ON FRIDAYS, SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS, WITH PLENTY OF CHILDREN AND FOREIGN PEOPLE AT WHOM WE CAN LAUGH TO OUR HEARTS' CONTENT.
