This was the last of the non-school reading of my pitiful break, and I'm so glad I picked it up! Grad school isn't conducive to a lot of "serious," literary pleasure-reading, so I've really only been reading graphic novels and romances lately (which I love, so no hardship). However, I'd kind of forgotten the very distinct joy of reading writing that you want to linger on, that makes you think, as opposed to devouring a book because there's not much to think about, just action, action, action (or because the writing's not that awesome anyway). It was a breath of fresh air before diving back into the required reading, and it was completely awesome.
