I am as well, although there have been a few remarkably mistaken posts.

Is there more to it than what is on the first post?

Yes, there were.

There were also claimed errors that simply...weren't. Walton was raising a massive red flag and suggesting that a decade's worth of work and intensely footnoted research was chock full of errors.

It was, to say the least, injurious. It was, to say the most, libelous.

I'm afraid I flew to the defense of my friend, and should have probably slowed myself down after the initial response, and taken longer to explore the boy king comment I found.

I have no problem with negative reviews; I just find it infuriating when people haven't bothered to actually read the book carefully (Critic's Room, anyone?). But overall, the blogs have been interesting.

The hits just keep on comin' . . .






Keep checking the comments in the older threads -- the discussions continue in, uh, interesting ways.
