did not like it
bookshelves: abandoned

On page 110, waiting for it to pick up a bit... So far I am not into the story or the characters.
Just couldn't do it. I got halfway through and still didn't like the characters. Maybe I will try it again one day.

Michelle You are about the only person I know who agrees with me on this. I actually did like the first part--pregraduation--but after that got completely bored with the characters and their nonexistent problems in any real sense. I did read the whole thing--well, I skimmed toward the end--but if you haven't read Middlesex or Virgin Suicides, I suggest them instead. SOO much better.

Jill I loved Middlesex and really liked Virgin Suicides so I was so looking forward to this. I didn't mind the pregraduation part but even then I was bored and didn't find the characters engaging and then it just seemed to get worse and I gave up. I am really glad to hear we have similar opinions on it...!

Michelle Me, too! I was so disappointed!
