Review: House and Philosophy: Everybody Lies (Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture #10)

User Review  - Allen - Goodreads

House with philosophy points tossed in. I thought it was rather boring after reading some philosophy, but might be interesting to people new to the subject. I felt like it dragged on for the second part, and I wish the authors didn't reference the same quotes/parts over and over. Read full review

User Review  - Gilmara Mendes - Goodreads

Maybe this is a good book to be read, but it becomes redundant at times, but as an audiobook, the narration is extremely boring! Read full review
