The Story of Benefit & Iniquity

by McTuba on May 9, 2013

The Professor is pure benefit. The Surgeon Madman is a diversity of good and horror. Both of these wordsmiths produce immeasurable advance in understanding English words, but the insane physician commits such wickedness that the story should not be read by children. The author, Simon Winchester, tells the adventures in the best style of a mystery writer. Absolute captivation to the connoisseur. Great book!
