I'm not sure what forum to place this topic.Mods,feel free to move this to any spot you wish. I have enjoyed Charles Haddon Spurgeon's book :Commenting And Commentaries for a long time.It's a valuable reference guide.There are some serious observations from his pen on books which he considers valuable and why. But here I will dwell on his biting sense of humor.Quite appropriately I'll give just bite-sized snips.Most of the time the author he is taking to task will not be mentioned. I hope you enjoy this miniseries! much ado about nothing It contains little to repay the student for toiling through the old-fashioned expressions. We grudge the four shillings which we gave for it. Of no importance A pile of paper,valuable to housemaids for lighting fires. More eloquent than accurate Sermons as good as these are plentiful as blackberries.Why were they printed? Tainted with infidelity. His day is over. Paper spoiled. Likely to send the servants to sleep. A queer old book. In all his commentaries he lumbers alone in his six-wheeled wagon. Unimportant. One of the dreariest works ever written...It is as dry as Noah in the ark. its rarity is no great calamity. Full,exhaustive,and exhausting.
