did not like it
bookshelves: classics, perhaps
Read in May, 2012

if it wasn't for the movie Easy A, I'd probably never touch this book.
I mean, look at the cover..it practically screams HARLEQUIN.
I don't blame the publisher though, I blame the people who made the Demi Moore's version.

This is the review for the translation edition, of course.
(since only translated books publisher desperate enough to put the film poster in the book cover in order to attract remind the readers.)

I'll admit that I barely finished half of the book.
One (old) reason: can't bear the translation.

....well, also the story isn't really that good.
