Book Review - The Deadly Dictionaries

About the Books

The Seven Deadly Sins have sliced up the dictionary and taken what’s theirs. No one vice is too greedy as each volume prides itself on having more than 500 entries. Word lovers will lust after these richly packaged volumes–and once you’ve collected all seven, you’ll be the envy of all your friends.
Anger will never cause a loss of words again–as long as you keep this reference clutched in your fists during your next fit. Speech will be your weapon as you launch a verbal assault on anyone who’s wronged you.
Surprisingly, it didn’t claim every word in the OED (although if it could, it would). This pocket-sized dictionary swipes only the most worthy of syllables, as well as your attention.
The real dictionary? Yawn. Too long. Don’t bother tirelessly working through all those boring pages. The important stuff is rolled up right here in a collection perfect for the nightstand.
No one enjoys lording over the uneducated with a pretty pointed vocabulary like the Prideful. Now each and every word you need to describe how much better you are is right at your fingertips.
Once just isn’t enough. You’ll want to ogle these entries multiple times, all night long. Nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, whatever your particular pleasure–or pleasures–you’ll find ‘em inside.
Everyone else will be turning green when you reveal your desirable new vocabulary. From A to Z, each entry feeds the monster and makes it want that much more.
You can devour word after word after word until you’ve had your fill. And then you can have some more. This bite-size book serves up a hefty sampling of juicy words. It’s a wonderful treat for the Gluttonous.

My Take on the Book
These were dictionaries unlike any that you have ever seen or would have ever imagined. The dictionaries were ones that made you  really think about what the book was covering and at the same time consider your own feelings about this sin and the words that the author was sharing. These dictionaries were very short and you could get them through easily. If you have ever thought about the deadly sins these books will open your eyes and minds!
