did not like it
Read in April, 2012

So there's this theme park. It's got alligator wrestling. And there's a rival theme park. There's a genius brother and a crazy mystic sister. This sounds like an interesting book, right?

I can't say it's not interesting. I can say that it is incredibly slowwwww paced, and nothing about those ingredients come off as slow to me. But after two weeks (I think?) of reading, I'd only made it through page 102 and didn't care enough go continue. Which is upsetting because the reviews are all so great and the subject is so intriguing. Plus Karen Russell's new book sounds super cool and now I'm concerned it won't be because of how I feel about Swamplandia! Oh well. On to bigger and better books (though maybe not literally bigger).
