Read from January 25 to February 14, 2011

I couldn't get through this book. I loved Gary Shteyngart's first book, I thought it was hilarious and adored the self-deprecating "author" character, but Super Sad True Love Story was shallow and the characters were not only hard to like, but hard to read about, period. I know it's a stylized book set in the near future, but the near future was obviously imagined during George W. Bush's time (there's even a Rumsfeld character) and it doesn't fit with the near future unfolding today. It could be that I'm just not a sci-fi fan, or that I just hope the future does not look like the one that Gary S imagines for us.
