Dull, dull, dull, my God it’s dull! It’s so desperately dull and tedious and stuffy and boring and des-per-ate-ly DULL! —Michael Palin
Nature has posted my review of Brief Candle in the Dark, the bloated second volume of memoir by Richard Dawkins, everyone’s favorite genetic determinist. Nature is very genteel–and they have very strict lawyers–so my temper is muted.
Still, the gist should come across. It reads, frankly, like he contracted for two books but, incomprehensibly, just got bored with writing about himself.
Perhaps the review may provoke a smile–or a scowl, if you’re of that genotype.
