Eats, Shoots & Leaves by Lynne Truss book review

Book reviews, Nonfiction
Before you worry, this isn't a book written by our former prime minister - this is Lynne Truss, an English author, journalist, novelist, and radio broadcaster and dramatist. She's currently a book reviewer for different publications. Eats, Shoots & Leaves is a non-fiction book published back in 2003 in which Truss, who had just finished hosting BBC Radio 4's Cutting the Dash radio show, bemoans the state of punctuation and how it should be being used.

But either way - I love these enormous, dangerous creatures that lived millions of years ago.
