Shana Julie - I can't wait to see your thoughts on this book. I read it a few months ago. It's certainly gotten a lot of buzz in the reading community.

Julie Shana, I'm about 3/4 of the way through and still awaiting a plot. ;)Perhaps there will be a strong finish! But I think I will be creating a new shelf for my Goodreads library: "Much Ado About Not Much" and this is likely to be the inaugural tome. eek!

Kristine I read a funny review of this book in EW. It's on my TBR list but I'm not anxious to get to it any time soon.

Review is here. Enjoy :)

Julie And I thought MY review was harsh :0 Thanks for the giggle! I'm in accord with this review- the more I think about it, the more annoyed I get. At least it was a quick read. LOVED (not) the cheese dangling from the nipple image. Ugh...

Shana Lol, Julie. When a book inspires such mixed feelings I'm always so anxious to know what side of the line someone will fall on! I *thought* you might not like it. I wasn't sure though and didn't want to say that until you'd finished. Great review - I really enjoyed reading your thoughts. The narrator's trip into 'the inferno' was most definitely my least favorite part of the story.

Kristine, the EW review is quite ruthless isn't it? It was much-discussed in the book blogging community.

Now I really want to read The Historian. That's another one that has such mixed reviews. I started out thinking I must read it then moved it down on the list in terms of priority after reading so many negative reviews.
