I know, I know, I gave Dave Eggers a 3. But the writing wasn't what brought this down, the writing was fabulous, it was the story itself. Slow to start, for sure, but what really ruined it was me being jaded. I think I've read as much about New Orleans and Katrina and terrible acts of human rights being violated one too many times. During and after my own stint in New Orleans, I went a little heavy on the NOLA culture and that has left me jaded, for sure. So maybe someone else would put this at a 4 or a 5, but it's just a 3 for me.

Oh well.
