That might seem a rather pointless challenge but you can read just such a book - Gadsby by Ernest Vincent Wright, a self-published story from Gadsby tells the story of a fictional city called Branton Hills, which is revitalized as a result of the efforts of its new mayor, John Gadsby, and a group of young people. This was done so that none of that vowel might slip in, accidentally; and many did try to do so! He avoided using numerals written as words so there are no numbers between six and thirty. Ernest Vincent Wright "Pronouns also caused trouble; for such words as he, she, they, them, theirs, her, herself, myself, himself, yourself, etc.

It is distinct in that it has lost a thing amounting to an unusual four AIOU only, with a missing particular alpha-symbol.

So What can I say about this work from Anno Domini forty-four multiply forty-four plus four plus unity. So what is that story?. Mayor Gadsby grows a town from small to big via a library, zoo, airport and so on. A family man with four kids, by Lady Gadsby, who in turn marry; thus having additional boys and girls making him a grandpa. Councilman Simpkins is a grump, grouchy and inhibitor. Towards its conclusion war starts abroad towards Paris actual fighting missing from story.
It is disappointing that Wright could not think of a good plot similarly quick and smart to that Francais-author of "Avoid" linking to such a constraint. Why construct a book losing such a crucial point to a work only; a bit similar to building a cocoa-char-pot?
Boring, cold, unsympathy of form, making a hollow story could add to a list of words showing its synopsis points but Wright works hard no doubt. Why would you want to pass many hours taking this in and not find joy or bliss; you may I think in your own way on this though?. Small charm, thrill and lacking a climax is a rundown of it. I had a good look for USA ways of making words that might fail by UK ways of doing things and found only unity in "gray". Wright has award limit of two or four stars only obviously but which?
I can think only to find favour in summary and four stars: it is mainly for that kind of big task built right to final and last folio! PS I did not apply a big quantity of clocks hours to build this form of words so though a difficult task, not too difficult; but shows that that limit for finding right words crafts a poor outlook as a conclusion for yours truly and Wright?
Now a bit from Gadsby: "Youth is wisdom in formation, and with it many thoughts startling to adult minds There seem varied, great feelings deep inside me; the writer Ernest limited the text, subject here reviewed, made use certain letters exclusively. One needs either give few second ideas wide berth, unless the reader permits me grace accepting the clear break between the sections - cheers. The greater complexity level between the modes chosen needs be decided.
The novel title mentioned earlier tells the tale enlarging the hamlet heading beyond metropolis. The responsible chief male person takes great trouble progressing meritus endeavours, leads the people near elevated heights.
There are certain elements besides paper repositories, aerodromes, museums etc each one needing money placed inside charitable collecting receptacles. Warfare enters. One gets annoyed the writer makes the storyline dreary. The limited text affects the value overall - the creation otherwise achieves the likeness near chocolate teapot level. Examining the lexicon available the English versus American spelling: "grey" being one. The end summarized clever, easily read, nice completing the novel text.
However large happiness quantities are deficient reaching the end. Ernest five pointed character? Clearly quotes needs be absent moreover. One leaves the second review there. Finale applied myself?

Ernest Vincent Wright
He made extensive use of verbs that do not take the -ed suffix and constructions with "do" for instance "did walk" instead of "walked". Scarcity of word options also drastically limited discussion involving quantity, pronouns, and many common words. Wright was unable to talk about any quantity between six and thirty. Wright also turns famous sayings into lipogrammatic form. Gadsby and his youthful army, despite some opposition, transform Branton Hills from a stagnant municipality into a bustling, thriving city. The novel is written from the point of view of an anonymous narrator, who continually complains about his poor writing skills and often uses circumlocution.
