bookshelves: 2011, book-club, science-fiction, wtf
Read in April, 2011

I have fond-but-vague memories of reading a bunch of Zelazny's Amber books in my teens. And this book won a Hugo, so I figured it'd be pretty good.

Yeah, umm. It was boring, confusing, and I totally didn't care about the pseudo-Hindu-and-also-some-Buddhism characters. Or what I guess was a plot. I mean, things happened, so it must technically be plot. I took to annoying anyone within earshot by remarking every time the characters smoked, which was frequent enough to provide some very, very minor entertainment.

Either it was a bad year for books or the drugs were very good? Ugh.
