    On Behalf of All Decathletes, I would like to apologize, for the many hours wasted attempting to understand this novel. Never has such nonsense been expanded into 400 pages until today. A fellow member, Saba Smith

    Personal favorite of mine. Was lucky to have a friend recommend it. Follows close in the spirit of a 19th century transcendentalist as well as evoking a human voice heard against the sounds of our natural world. Scientific as well as spiritual, this book is a true worth in a world over stuffed with words.
