Review: Homo Ludens: A Study of the Play-Element in Culture

Recensione dell'utente  - Sabot - Goodreads

Contains some interesting ideas, but felt like a slog at times. I considered putting it down and moving on but I'm still glad I stuck it out. The two star rating is based entirely on the "it was OK" caption so don't let it dissuade you from picking this book up. Leggi recensione completa
