bookshelves: fiction, for-school, hey-shorty
Recommended for: men.
Read in January, 2001

Get this book away from me. I read it in high school and absolutely positively could not stand it, and unlike a lot of books I didn't like during that time, I know it's not because I was being a silly, stubborn girl. I really, really read this one, and I couldn't stand it. Gross.

Kelly Homeboy Joseph wrote an awful novel. Sorry. Someone needs to tell his dead corpse the truth. Or he'll never learn.

_Heart of Darkness_ is one of my favorite works of all time. Top 20. Joe dropped the hammer on civilized society.

Taylor This might be an important novel and all, and I respect that, but reading it was excruciating.

Kelly This book made me want to cry with boredom, pain, and disgust. That is my strongest memory from it. So he can drop all the damn hammers he wants. Just not on me again, thanks.

Different strokes for different folks.

Your dislike of this book makes me sad. Very sad. I'm going to cry now, and it's all your fault.
