did not like it
bookshelves: read-in-2010
Read in July, 2010

I got the socio-political satire. And then it went on and on and on, with not much change or variation, and I lost interest.

This could have easily been a short story since you really don't want to spend much time with the main character. He has no redeeming qualities, and unlike the poor people in his country, you as the reader can escape his persecution quite easily by shutting the damn book.
