message 1: by Kim (new) - rated it 3 stars

Kim Actually 3.5 stars meaning "I liked it quite a lot, but not quite really liked it." I have to sit on this one before writing a review. I'm fascinated by my own experience of reading the book, however. It took such a great level of concentration because the dialogue is crazy dense and obscured. There are pages where I wasn't sure who the pronouns definitely belonged to. At the same time, I enjoyed surrendering to James and just entering his psychological approach and super convoluted (phrase after phrase) sentences. I enjoyed nibbling away at it.
