Disappointed. Going by excerpt I really thought its going to be an interesting read but I somehow managed to finish it because I find it difficult to leave books midway. I expected something really shocking which would make me wonder about human relationships like it happened while reading one of Annie Zaidi's book. Read if you get it for free. I'm more disappointed because I paid for it. Not worth the price.
For now, this is going into my "couldn't finish" pile. I was really turned off by the first half-dozen essays. With compilations of essays, I always imagine that maybe, if I persevere a bit, I'll find something decent. But there's only so much self-indugent drivel I can take, and this book is pushing that limit. So I'm done with it for now.
