A recent Snapple cap of mine proclaimed that:
French author Michel Thayer published a 233 page novel which has no verbs.
- Does anyone know the name of this book?
- Can anyone explain how this is possible?
It's a gimmick. Nothing more. Oh sure, he gets all high and mighty about it, but even in his explanation of why he did it he breaks his own rule about never using verbs.
From the Wikipedia page:
Nobody said it was a good novel. ;)
To answer your second question, an example of how the writing flows is given on the French Wikipedia page:
It's much easier to do in French than English, but it's possible. There is no "method" for doing so, though.
In fact, you can do this with almost any part of speech. Language is weird. For example, "Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo" is a grammatically correct sentence in English--but really, who the fu*k would ever want to write such a sentence?
