did not like it
bookshelves: couldn-t-get-through-it
Read in January, 2012

This book had been mentioned by someone whose own writing I like quite a lot. It was a selection included in a creative writing course that he was teaching. In fairness, I never heard him say if he liked it or not, but wow - what a relentless bombardment of puerile drivel! I liked the troll, what little of him I got to see. Hated every other character in the (first half of)(far as I could get)the book. This is one of those books that I would like to physically throw just as far away from me as I could, but alas - it's in my Kindle. It shall be electronically-jettisoned, I assure you, but that simply doesn't pack the same enjoyment one gets from hurling a physical tome.

But hell - you might like it - who knows.
