I've read both books (some years ago). Web of Words: James Murray and the Oxford English Dictionary is excellent, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Mr. Winchester's book, not so much. Ms. Murray's book has more detail and is simply a more interesting book.

The subject is fascinating since I love words, history and the madman makes it even more intriguing. I like Mel Gibson's acting so look forward to seeing the film.

Years ago, I looked forward to reading The Surgeon of Crowthorne because of the subject matter, but I was disappointed by it. The film should be ... interesting.

"Interesting" is one word for it........

Cornflower, some time ago I listened to the audio book of The Surgeon of Crowthorne and found it a fascinating story. Must have borrowed it from the library. I do recommend.
