bookshelves: 1001-books-to-read, c20th, usa, abandoned

I haven't really abandoned this, I will come back to it later, but when I do, I'll need to start again.
Having said that, it is true that the book had not, up to the point where I stopped reading, engaged me enough to want to continue with it.

Buried In Print I've been thinking about reading this one from my shelves: what do you think so far?

Hello:) I ought not have an opinion, really. I started reading it when I was up in Qld visiting my parents at Xmas and brought it back home with me ... um ... but I haven't taken it up again since. That's more a matter of so many other interesting things to read than anything about this book, but I suppose if I'd been drawn into the book that wouldn't have been the case. I liked Falling Man by deLillo and disliked The Body Artist i.e. abandoned it, so that's no help to me in deciding whether to jettison other reading imperatives to take it up again. One thing's for sure: I've forgotten enough of it to know that I'll need to start from the beginning again.
