I read this book for a long-distance family book club that the Tarasovic-Talbots are currently beta testing. I think it would have been a great book to read if you were in daily contact with another person reading it, because it's peppered with interesting ideas that might spark some good discussion between co-readers. Two weeks after finishing it, though, I'm struggling to remember a single one of those ideas, and kind of come away with the notion that this book had one major point (Everything Is a Metaphor) that it tried to drill home in a million different (and often repetitive) ways, yet never really got around to explaining why that central notion was so important.
