Review quote

"Can't live without it. My 9 year old loves to find obscure wow adjectives and adverbs for his essays." 5* Amazon reviewer "This book is excellent to compliment my studies, and also proves quite useful for anyone wanting some clues as to how to tackle a crossword. I moved and lost my last thesaurus book so was glad to of replaced it with this one at last. Being a student, it is wise to have a good sense of diverse use of our English Language." 5* Amazon reviewershow more
