really liked it
Read in December, 2007

this is a long ass book. i traded a David Sedaris book that i had just finished for this one at a youth hostel while i was traveling. if i wasn't on an island in a foreign country, i probably would have held out for something better, but options (on everything) were limited. amazingly, i got through 'Songs' and didn't feel like it was a waste of my vacation time. there are over 2 dozen characters and many subplots to keep up on, so that got a bit confusing at times. some of the subplots probably could have been left out, but it was also fun to see how many of the stories eventually connected to one another. although, this book starts off slow, i did become quite engrossed in several of the dramas that take place in the two plus lbs of pages.
