The fake-it-till-you-make-it guide to sound intelligent

Are you constantly asked for an opinion on a book and know not what to say? Then this ready to use kit will be helpful for you! All you have to do is memorize this format and substitute the words in caps with the appropriate ones.

The overall effect was like [VICTORIAN CHILDREN’S BOOK] meets [ZANY SEVENTIES T.V. SERIES] on [ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE], or listening to [ACTION FILM DIRECTOR] talk about [B-LIST DADAIST] with [GAME-SHOW HOST]. In a word: [YIDDISH EXCLAMATION]!
[ADJECTIVE] and yet [ADJECTIVE DIAMETRICALLY OPPOSED TO PREVIOUS ADJECTIVE], this novel, against all odds (given that the author was [S&M TERM] in a [HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCE] for [NUMBER] years) combines a [FRENCH AUTHOR] ian sense of [RARE MAMMAL] power with a remarkably [GERMAN ADJECTIVE] lesson about what happens to the fate of emerging [POLITICAL UNITS], when the predominant [FINELY GRADED SOCIOECONOMIC CLASS] forgets the true meaning of [UNTRANSLATED GREEK WORD].
