PDF NEW A Time to Dance a Time to Die The Extraordinary Story of the Dancing Plague of 1518 À John Waller


At first I was very enthused bout this book however the I read the I grew irritated nd lukewarm to both the uthor Daddy! and the book My most hated thing is unnecessary repetitionsnd this occurs often in this book It insults my intelligence to keep finding the same reworded paragraph reinserted ll over the book Plus it GIVES THE WHOLE THING A PADDED FEEL WHICH WAS the whole thing padded feel which was my mind freuently the I got into this book The font is big nd the pages themselves which was my mind freuently the I got into this book The font is big nd the pages themselves rather small so with the repetitions Don't Joke on the Stairs: How I Learned to Navigate China by Breaking Most of the Rules and rather pointlessnd stupid imaginings of 1518 I feel like the The Women’s Courtyard author was trying to draw out this book Ilso have hit my lifetime uota of the word cavalieresueAll these repetitions The Ippos King and well maybe the bishop wasn t in town that day but if he was he would probably would have lookedt his flock which might have looked something like this nd perhaps would have said This is obviously not direct uote nd me making fun of the style but if the uthor took out The Tarot of Vampyres [With Phantasmagoria] all these possibilitiesnd oh by the way most of the townsfolk probably were missing teeth moments book would have been much much shorter Which was not needed because he had plenty of material to work with if he wasn t focusing on random things Also he needed to not be Witch Ball apologizing for his bizarre subject matter It s why we re reading this book to begin with I realize that the loss of life from uncontrollable spastic dancing is significantly less than plagues or war It seems like he waslmost embarrassed by his subject matter What Love Is: And What It Could Be and kept wandering on off topic material like the Peasant War or thettempted uprisings in the countryside which really didn t have that much to do with nything I thought the ending was ctually the most interesting part of the whole book nd how the ending was ctually the most interesting part of the whole book nd how dancing plague is not so different from stress disorders today Also thought it was fascinating how the ways people snap under pressure have changed over time This should have been the focus of the book since it was obvious that his source material for the 1518 nd the dozens of other 1100s 1500s choreomania was rather slim One thing Throughout the book he mentions he is focusing on the 1518 incident since that was the last major outbreak Satellite and thent the very end of book mentions the 1863 Madagascar time where thousands danced because they thought they were haunted by the spirit of the evil dead ueen Ranavalona This interests me endlessly since whenever the gruesome Female Caligula pops up in either fiction or non fiction things don t turn out well in The Indians a bizarre way for everyone Did not know that she stillffected the populace that much even ATLANTIS SOLON AND PLATO FOR FROST? after death Anyways this kind of makesll his last major outbreak parts false BlockChain One-Stop Guide: From Concept to Execution: BitCoin, Ethereum, RippleNet, R3 Corda, Hyperledger, MultiChain IOTA and it would have been better book if he compared nd contrasted 1518 nd 1863 throughout the middle instead of just mentioning it HUMILIATING ALLYSON (A twisted tale of a BDSM gangbang like no other.) asn L'uomo scatola aside Five stars for the crazy subject matternd how it made me think bout coping mechanisms nd pressure points of today one for the presentation Repetitious mediocre writing overall Despite my sympathy to Waller s hypothesis that the dancing plagues were psychological phenomena he fails to convince nd grates with somewhat lopsided view of the state of the. A gripping tale of one of history's most bizarre events nd what it reveals bout the strange possibilities of human natureIn the searing July heat of 1518 Frau Troffea stepped into the streets of Strasbourg nd began to dance Bathed in sweat she continued to dance Overcome with exhaustion she stopped nd then resumed her solitary jig
