I still very much hate it the second time around. Let's hear it for my patience and tolerance.

I was annoyed in the beginning and I've been annoyed along the way and I'm annoyed in the end.
I hate this book. If there's a question in the exams asking for a one-page essay of my opinion, I swear I will not spare anything and I'm not going to use euphemisms and I'm definitely not going to pretend to like it and praise it just to get points. I'm gonna thrash it. Take that, teachers!

41.0% "Oh God. This is the second time already (for test on Wednesday), and I truly expected things to go faster, but of course this book has to be so much of a pain that I can only read, per hour, 30 pages MAXIMUM. I just can't for the life of me get into it. I keep getting bored. And now I'm as sleepy as someone who hasn't slept in 4 years. This book is a friggin' sleeping pill. A torturous one at that, too. *cries*"

Best I hate it, more like. It didn't make me cry, nor did it bring me any closer to tears than when I'm staring at my wall. Horrible book. I'm so pissed.
