#Review: The Talking Book by Jane De Suza

The Talking Book
Author: Jane De Suza
Publisher: Penguinsters

In this captivating exploration, Jane takes readers on an enthralling journey through the ages, unravelling the mysteries of communication from prehistoric times to the era of artificial intelligence. The book introduces us to a cast of fascinating characters—the one-word man, the 400-word monkey, and the million-word computer—who each contribute to the intricate development of language.

The narrative weaves through dark arts, untranslatable words, and resurrected languages, offering a tapestry of linguistic evolution. From handprints on ancient cave walls to secrets buried in ash from a prolonged winter, every tale in this book serves as a clue to the colossal puzzle that has intrigued brilliant minds for centuries.

The author injects humour into the exploration, making the book informative and entertaining. The quirky anecdotes and crazy quizzes engage readers, creating a rollercoaster ride of language evolution. However, a playful warning is issued: be cautious of the wise-cracking dog claiming authorship—a whimsical touch that adds to the charm of the narrative.

“The Talking Book” stands out as a romp through linguistic history, providing an engaging and informative experience for readers of all ages. It’s a book that not only educates but also entertains, making it a commendable addition to the exploration of language’s evolution.

Best wishes to the author!
