Same here -- because I could never memorize valences. And that is pretty much the sum total of my chemical knowledge!

Wrong person - I've never read this book. Sounds like it might be interesting though - despite the erratic writing.

Tannat reviewed this in August. Is that who you're thinking of? If so, you're in luck. Tannat puts links to any status updates in the review. http://tannat.booklikes.com/post/1590378/the-last-alchemist-in-paris-by-lars-ohrstrom

I've been trying to link the status updates because otherwise they get lost...

Shoot! I *did* totally mix up Tannat and Elentarri. Sorry! I hope you both take that as the compliment it is. :D

@Darth Pony: THANK YOU! You are my favourite person today! ;)

I'm happy my selective memory could be of service. ;)

No worries

We're interchangeable, apparently. ;)

No worries, I have no problem with having my reviews mistaken for Elentarri's (far more thorough) ones.

The reviews are only thorough if I have enough stuff to complain about! ;)

Interchangeable only in the sense that you both have very similar opinions on the same books (generally speaking, of course). And you both give me such clear insight into a book's writing, I know what I'm getting into before I buy the book. :)

Well, you're welcome?

No question mark needed - I always consider both of your reviews valuable indicators of whether a book is good or not. We don't always agree on the books we like, but where we diverge is our level of tolerance for chatty or lack of depth in our science books, and since I don't mind either, it's easy for me to take that into account. :D

Fair enough.

And yeah, it's anecdotal, but it's mostly anecdotal to hard science. And I love his sense of humour.
