The Dogs
of Babel PLOT SUMMARY: * Protagonist: Paul Iverson: Linguist at a university.

of the book is him trying to teach Lorelei how to talk. BEST FEATURE #1: EXAMPLE #1: "The day was warm, and we drove with the windows
open. Breeze on my arms as I drove. Savor it now,
the day, the breeze. Run the memory of it over your
tongue. Speak it aloud; there's no one listening. Say
"sun" and "hot" and "day". Close your eyes and remember
the moment, the warm pink life of it. Lexy's body in
the seat next to mine. Her voice filling the
car. Let it wash over you.
It ends soon enough." EXAMPLE #2: Page 78 to 79:
about it. BEST FEATURE #2: * Was born January 18, 1971, in Manchester, New Hampshire. * Received her B.A. degree from Wesleyan University

made me stop reading. BEST FEATURE #3: * "Love at first sight" kind
of story.
* 1/3 mushy-gushy,
2/3 depressing.
