I just finished my second book and I'm a bit conflicted. While on the one side I loved The Uncommon Reader, it also threw me completely when it went from being spot on to so completely uncharacteristic of the Queen that it became gibberish. It does however have some excellent points about reading and the effects of reading on the reader and those I took to heart. I will admit that the book uses a fair amount of big words that I don't entirely or some even remotely know what actually means.
