Semicolon Obsession

I’m slowly making my way through Insanity: The Idea and Its Consequences, by Thomas Szasz. The book is quite interesting, but I find the overuse of semicolons a bit distracting. It almost becomes a game of trying to guess where he will throw in another semicolon (you can expect about 5 per page).

It may simply be just me (and the particular books I happened to read thus far), but I’ve seen more semicolons in the 80 or so pages that I’ve made it through the book than I’ve seen in my entire life.
