Okay, I'm sorry. If your review of book X shows a 5th grade grasp of grammar, I won't believe you read the book. I just can't see past the issues of subject-verb agreement, misplaced commas, and a complete lack of compound sentences.

If that sounds like your writing, try again.

They should really teach grammar in school. Oh, wait: they do!

well, sort of. i (like to think that i) have pretty high standards about spelling and grammatical construction in my writing, but i think i learned all of that from reading voraciously when i was young. i really didn't have a grasp on what the individual elements of grammar actually were until i started learning foreign languages. i don't have any recollection of discussing, say, direct and indirect objects in my english classes throughout all of grade school.
