Pretty amazing. Driver claims he forgot he had raised trailer and that he didn’t notice it was raised when he came back to move the truck because it was dark. That seems hard to believe. Even in the dark you should be able to see the raised trailer towering above you.
Yes, I am also amazed that there is no visual/audible alarm that the trailer is raised.
He caused a lot of damage and disruption. Not going to be popular.
I am still in amazement.
‘The Road To Wellville’ By T.C. Boyle — Great Story, Brilliantly Told, But I Would Have Preferred Abridged Version!
I really can’t believe I said that. Abridge version! Coming from I. Yikes.
What can I say? A review printed on the back cover refers to the ‘bombastic language‘. They said that on the back cover. That about sums it up. I have been frequently accused of flowery, florid and dense writing. But, I think he takes this to extremes that even I would not dare. Shame, because it is such a great book, a wonderful FACTIONAL story. One that needs to be read — about Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (of cornflake fame), his ostentatious Sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan and his outrageous cures which included radium inhalation.
I have had this book for awhile and had wanted to read it for a long time. I knew a bit about Kellogg’s quackery and wanted to get a better picture. To be honest this book does not give you the full story of Kellogg. His early days and how he wrested control of the Sanitarium from the Seventh-Day Adventists is glossed over. But, still I learnt tremendous amount — most of it which made me shudder.
I would love to recommend this book to a few people — but, alas, they would not thank me for it! Though the story is compelling it is hard work reading the words. It is like trying to eat and digest dry cardboard. Shame. Hence, why I would like to see an abridged version. The story told in its essence with 40% of the bombastic words eradicated.
All that said, I liked it because the story had me enthralled. So … I have told you how I feel. You might still want to give it a try.
So, so many bundles — on Amazon. Mind blowing. Yes, I immediately reject some — e.g., Beach Camera.
You just don’t know who you can trust. Yikes, again.
