Anguished English is filled with accidental misuses of language that will delight and entertain you. This book has all the student bloopers, dangling modifiers, misread headlines, and malapropisms imaginable. It's a must-have for word lovers everywhere.

I picked this up while meeting some lovely bookcrossers in London, I've already read a quarter of the book and it's a hoot!!

This book has some laugh out loud bits, which was a bit embarrassing as I was reading it on a plane!

Definitely a fun book to read, if a little too Americanised.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:






If you aren't familiar with Bookcrossing, take a few minutes to check out this very cool site. Bookcrossers LOVE books, and more than anything, they love to read books and then set them free for other people to find and enjoy. I would love it if you would leave a journal entry -- you can say where you found the book or how you liked it when you read it.
