Read in January, 2005

We had people over for the Fourth for the fireworks and, of course, the house had to be cleaned and by that, I mean all the books sprawled about the floor in lazy, often surly piles, crowding every available planed surface had to be reined in and brought to order. Rice & Salt got rammed into a corner atop the largest bookshelf in the living room and I'm looking at it now -- it balefully staring back at me.

I do not like this book. In fact, I've been trying to dump it for the last -- however long I've had it since after I read it, which, I think, is a good three years. Plot, character, story development, etc, I just didn't enjoy but, BUT there is so small part of me that refuses to add it to the Salvation Artm/Sell @ the Strand bag in the kitchen. Dunno why. The book is as if Steven Spielberg and Umberto Eco did movie together and this book is the adaptation of that film.

The fucked up part? I've read it twice. A book I don't like, I've read it twice.

What's it about? *Sheesh* Come to the house and get it out of here if you want to know that...
