bookshelves: didnt-finish

i picked up this book because i had heard many good things about it. and, i thought it would be neat to read marcos, i was thinking that it would political but not necessarily overtly.

i was wrong.

and i didnt like the style or the writing really. i made it about four chapters into the book and decided not to finish it, the switching was doing it for me and i didnt really have a great hold on the story.

at first i really liked the way marcos was writing, but quickly it became tedious. i understand that you are supposed to write what you know, but writing himself as an abstract character seemed a bit lame to me. i dont really like mystery novels, and i was hoping for something more like jonathon lethem.
