it was ok

I read this a few years ago after reading about how good it is, and to this day I'm the only person I know that didn't really enjoy it at all. I read the whole thing on a plane ride to California, and I think it contributed to my jet lag because it was such a disappointment. Maybe I'll give it another try sometime, because people still tell me how good it is, but the whole thing left such a bitter taste in my mouth. For me, every sentence seemed to scream "I am important! You are supposed to enjoy me for intellectual reasons!" When in reality, it was boring and dragged and went in circles and made me write run-ons.

T G You are not alone!

Sara Ditto that.

Chris Gager You're not alone. The book started out OK but went streaking downhill after that.
