Read full description of the books:



Fifty-year-old John Gadsby is alarmed by the decline of his hometown, Branton Hills, and rallies the city's young people to form an "Organization of Youth" to build civic spirit and improve living standards. Gadsby and his youthful army, despite some opposition, transform Branton Hills from a stagnant municipality into a bustling, thriving city. Toward the end of the book the members of Gadsby's organization receive diplomas in honor of their work. Gadsby becomes mayor and helps increase Branton Hills' population from 2,000 to 60,000. The story begins around 1906 and continues through World War I, Prohibition, and President Warren G. Harding's administration.
"Gadsby" is a lipogram - a whole novel of some 50.000 words without a single instance of the letter E. When it first appeared in 1939 it was hardly noticed by the general public, but a modern reviewer called it "probably the most ambitious work ever attempted in this genre". Hardcopies of the book are extremely rare and sell for thousands of dollars. (Summary by Availle and Wikipedia)

Reviews of the Gadsby


LEWIS

The butterflies in my stomach have died ...

LOGAN

You want to waste your time? This book fits perfectly.

WILLOW

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

MUHAMMAD

The idea is great, but sometimes the text suffers

ELLIE

He does not stop applaud author and his works.
