Call Shea crazy. He reads the entire OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY in one year and extols upon the fascinating, unusual, and useless words it compiles. William Dufris is the perfect narrator for this book. The words trip easily and clearly from his lips as he brings the many mysteries of the English language to listeners, including the meanings of words we have never known, long forgotten, or always wondered about. Never boring, often funny, Shea describes his experiences reading in his local library as well as the reactions of his friends to his yearlong project. Best of all, Dufris reads every word with enthusiasm, tempting the listener to delve into a dictionary just for the fun of it. M.B.K.
