Paula Thank you. I was starting to think there was something wrong with me for not liking this book. You forgot to mention how dreadfully slow-paced it was!

Thanks for this. I am about 2/3rds of the way through this book and I just hate it for pretty much all these reasons. I was also starting to feel crazy about my response in the face of its unanimously positive reception.

Kyla Yes. Exactly.

Katie Hanson I share the exact same sentiments and for all the very same reasons mentioned: Fountain's forcing Holden Caulfield into fatigues and slapping M'rican flags all over the Southeast just screams parody instead of satire. I'm only finishing this book on the principle that once I pick it up, I'm committed until the end.

Emily I actually really liked this book, but I usually hate notable literary fiction and in a parallel universe where I didn't like it, I think it would be for exactly the reasons you name.
