Read in January, 2011

Yeah, about the same as the second in the trilogy, which is to say wildly disappointing compared to the first (which works as a stand-alone and should be on everyone's "to read" list). There's just no real spark to the storytelling.

Except for perhaps the last 100 pages, when the main character back in active relationship with Aleksander and I started caring again. It makes me think that the trilogy is really about Aleksander, but just doesn't always have to do with him.

This trilogy was Berg's first novels, so I'm definitely planning to get some more of hers and see if the outstanding writing of the first book carries over into other storylines. I think in this set the author just got lost in the narrator's depressed, myopic, confused head, and since it was told first-person, there wasn't anywhere else for the reader to go.

Read _Transformation_, though. It's great.
