it was amazing
bookshelves: 2012, fucked-up, loved-it, novel
Read from February 18 to 26, 2012

I actually finished this book a couple of weeks ago, but have struggled to write a review. Reading it was a raw, visceral experience. I laughed. I cried. I raged. I don't know that I can adequately distill that experience into something akin to an essay after the fact. This book is about what it feels like to be a woman in late 20th/early 21st century America, and that's something you either understand or you don't. I don't know that it can be explained. Just read the book.

73.0% "Just finished one of the best love scenes I've read, not for the body parts or the "hotnesss," but for the raw, real emotions. There's a line about how Kim is trying not to cry at the innocence she feels, and then how what she feels in this moment is all she's ever wanted, all she's been looking for. Yeah. That. Workplace lunchroom not the best place to read this, for many reasons."

 ~Geektastic~ This one is going on my TBR thanks to you, Misha.

Misha I should probably warn you that it's pretty graphic, and possibly disturbing. I have a high tolerance for things that are fucked up.

 ~Geektastic~ Thanks for the warning. I can usually handle that stuff when it's in the service of a good story. Although I may wait until I'm in the mood to deal with the darkness before I go tracking it down.
