Aug 28, 2011

did not like it
bookshelves: unfinished
Read from November 03 to 10, 2011

Absolutely hated this book, or at least the portion that I read. There is not a single reason to recommend Parallel Stories. The writing is not attractive, the narrative strands are extremely difficult to follow, and the stories themselves are tedious at best and revolting at worst. A profound disappointment.
