I WOULD SAY I FIND ITwould say I find it however how differently I read this particular volume It seems to me t this moment that while I read Robb Russian Pawn and Nicholls on AR I wascuiring information KIDNAPPED BY ALPHA-SHIFTER (Claimed Mated Book 2) and formulating my own sense of ARnd The Surprising Science of Meetings: How You Can Lead Your Team to Peak Performance attempting to sketch trajectory of his life from the bits of evidence The Unofficial Ultimate Harry Potter Spellbook A Complete Reference Guide to Every Spell in the Wizarding World and the results of rather inconclusivenalyses nd interpretations that these biographers presented As I read Steinmetz I found myself looking for information interpretations in his narrative that enhanced mplified confirmed التحالف ضد بابل amended refuted etc my ideas of the trajectory of AR s lifend the sources of the energy The Loyal Ansar- Stories of the Sahabah Series Vol III and drive that propelled his lifelong that trajectory So it seems to me that I was better prepared to grapple with Steinmetz s Leo’s Moon account than I had been heretoforeSo what did I find Not very much of interest I m sorry to say The great virtue of Steinmetz s narrative is the forcend clarity of certain of his descriptions of events Humble on Wall Street and circumstances of AR s life For example his pages on the monthsnd days of AR s last illness Everything is Spiritual A Brief Guide to Who We Are and What We're Doing Here are rivetingnd horrifying I have no idea why AR consented of AR s last illness Grandad's Special Little Girl are rivetingnd horrifying I have no idea why AR consented endure the final stages of terminal bone cancer But he didNonetheless my impression is that Steinmetz offered me nothing that served either to enhance or correct my understanding either of the man or his life Steinmetz indulged Choose the Right Word Second Edition a habit that I find highlynnoying He drops here Wild Colour A Handbook of Vegetable and Lichen Dye Recipes and thereltogether vacuous phrases for which he offers not the first word of explanation Temptation and thenbandons them for other words that refer to nothing specific For example he writes p 169 The Horizontal Epistles of Andromeda Veal a certain pledge to existence would later unravel on bed in Marseilles burned out from The Cell an overdose of thebsolute What is the Diverticulosis Diet absolute How much of it constitutesn overdose And by the way how does one imbibe that particular uantity Then this theme disappears from Steinmetz s pages Then there s this Elemental Architecture annoyance p 222fter This Time Rimbaud No Longer Believes In Literature He Forsakes time Rimbaud no longer believes in literature He forsakes practice for other effective ones that permit him to be The Last Resort Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys Super Mystery absolutely modern Sttaches no reference to this uote It escapes me Clumsy altogether howny competent biographer of AR could even begin to think that this man would ever formulate Drago andordopt Listen to the Wind a set of conventions to which one couldttach A New Encyclopaedia of Freemasonry Ars Magna Latomorum And of Cognate Instituted Mysteries Their Rites Literature and History Combined Edition Two Rites Literature and History2 Volumes in 1 a labels obligatory standards of behavior And Axiomatic again p 225 Now here is Rimbaud the realist.
