The use of a dictionary and a thesaurus is almost a lost art - the over reliance on 'spell check' has not improved either spelling or grammar.

Having said that, I am not a grammar nazi - but a reasonable command of the language does help us get more out of any authors work - not just his storyline - but the language tools he uses can add to our enjoyment.

And if you are not native speakers of English then gaining as much knowledge of the English language is imperative if you are to comprehend the language fully and enjoy the multitude of top fiction in any genre: be it science fiction, fantasy, thrillers, biographies, westerns or adventure.
