Read from April 15 to 22, 2012

This is the first Rick Moody novel I've ever read and it just so happens that I read it right after I read the Virgin Suicides. Both books were pretty damn depressing. Yet, I thought Moody's writing was unique and interesting. I like how he kept linking the characters together and what they were going through. However, reading this was kind of a slow process for me just because I knew that I every time I opened the book I would be welcomed back into a world of hopeless, depressed characters with a future full of carpet jobs etc. Yet, just because it was depressing doesn't mean it isn't worth the read. I plan on reading more Moody.
