Paul, you've got to tell us what the other one was. It's a point of honor. I was fortunate, karmawise if not readerwise, with an Evanovich novel I picked up at a remainder table. I found the book stale and wooden, unreadable, but a friend of my wife's, who happened to come by and saw it, was very pleased to receive it as a gift. From my perspective, it was a fabulous deal (even the jacket was plug-ugly).

I claim that the clumsy sentence structure above is a direct consequence of thinking about that book.
