I felt the book The Swerve was 1/3 too long. After More/Erasmus the connection wasn't close enough, and I felt the author was fishing for a way to make Lucretius relatable to contemporary folks.

Lucretius invented the swerve! Plus the recent book called the Swerve, written by some fancy pants professor, was pretty banging.

Lucretius is too busy licking Epicurus' ass to come up with anything original...
