An absolute masterpiece. I've been all over the world looking for the perfect book and this is it. After all the hard nights without food and drink sleeping on a canoe next to a very nice African gentleman letting me catch a ride this is the sum of all my efforts. Words can't even explain my pure delight upon merely flicking the pages of this masterful creation. I looked all over from the southern most portion of Pakistan to the streets of Alabama. I've been down to the depths of the ocean exploring the wreckage of once lost ships and through countless shelves in the Bibliotheque Nationale de France searching through some of the oldest documents that I could find dating as far back as 2000 BCE. I must have spent millions of dollars alone on simply buying every single book I could get my hands on including those that shall not be named as I may risk my life for saying I have acquired them. I have met so many people on my journeys and experienced so many beautiful adventures including a man who wanted me to clear his basement of "Draugr" and the Woman in the mines looking desperately for Gallium ore. Me finding this book alone was mere coincidence. After a long few days of resting on grassy beds in meadows and on rocky caves away from the winter rain I found myself able to afford accommodation in a little inn at the town of "Slagelse" in Denmark. It was situated down a narrow side road and I was just about to bed down for the night when I saw it. A book pushed a bit further into the bookcase than the rest. I picked it up and dusted it off as it seemed it hadn't been read in ever so long. And that night I did not sleep, not for lack of food or determination but for mere awe. This book enthralled me and I am now studying it in the Ivory Universities of the world to find as much as I can about its brilliance.
10/10 would read again.
