Not sure what the hype is about. It had moments, but then it dropped off and left me feeling like - okay - now what just happened? And, mainly, I just felt like nothing happened. What is up with critics these days? Man I just didn't get it. Powell's books has this on their top 10 for 2010 - ??????

Quotes Roxanne Liked

Jennifer Egan
“I’m done. I’m old, I’m sad - that’s on a good day. I want out of this mess. But I don’t want to fade away, I want to flame away - I want my death to be an attraction, a spectacle, a mystery. A work of art.”
Jennifer Egan, A Visit from the Goon Squad
