The following is a one line excerpt:
"Wot the 'ell?" ejaculated one of the crew.
What was going on in the mind of Burroughs when he began this novel, I wondered. Was it memories of perhaps the previous night's encounter that caused him to confuse his dialogue? Did he really mean:
“Wot the 'ell?”
One of the crew ejaculated.
On page 2, I came across a six line sentence that took me several minutes to decipher. Angered by my inability to comprehend both the author's thoughts and the long sentence, I slammed the book shut and went for a swim.
