Madness and Civilization by Michel Foucoult, 289pp.

This book sucked ass so much i don't want to write anything even remotely interesting about it. maybe i am too stoooopid to understand what the hell was going on, maybe they got the worst translator they could find, maybe the great thinker wasn't that great of a writer, but each word was a step on broken glass with bare feet up a mountain in freezing rain while carrying 100 pounds or live electric eels.

the book was supposed to be about madness, how it is viewed, what people did about it, etc, from medievil times till now or so. the book started off slow, picked up around page 98, then came to a grinding halt by page 99. actually, i think only one or two sentances in that whole book were worth my time.
