Dogs Wake

I'm sure John Gray didn't write Straw Dogs with the intention that people would think it was laugh-out-loud funny, but that's how I'm finding it. It's Enlightenment's Wake (which I finished yesterday) rewritten for readers uninterested in structured argument, reasoning or (as Keith Sutherland notes in his review) properly cited sources. Enlightenment's Wake was fascinating (I read it with a pencil in my hand, underlining it in the way I would any philosophy text I am trying to understand, trying to work out how Gray is wrong and why), Straw Dogs is merely entertaining.
