it was ok
bookshelves: threw-across-room

Threw this paperback (which began falling apart both literally and figuratively when I hit the second chapter) across the room when I read the final sour, judgemental note in the last "experimental" chapter. This book broke my heart in a way too typical for me lately. Thought I was falling in love with something original and it just turned into a disingenuous mess.

Brenda Kirsten, I love your reviews. I knew I didn't want to read this...but I could never conjure a tangible reason why.
