I was expecting to like this more, even once I started I thought it would be a good book but the more it turned to the outcomes of finding On the Nature of Things instead of the hunt for it, the less interested I was.
It does seem to express a definitive opinion on what was right and what was wrong and infers quite a few things to this manuscript by the most tenuous of means. I found it skimpy with the history and verbose on arguable outcomes, being neither engaged by one or convinced by the other I was left bored.
