it was ok
Read from June 12 to 23, 2012

Author of The Bloody Chamber which I LOVED. But I didn't LOVE "LOVE". I wanted to LOVE "LOVE". But 120 pages of solid telling is hard to concentrate on. Storytelling has changed so much over the recent years, and I suppose I've gotten used to it. I felt so dreadfully removed from these apparently damaged individuals which should have oozed with angst. But the only angst it oozed with was my own for not enjoying it but wishing I was. It's Angela Carter for god's sake :( ANGELA CARTER! A Genius. But this book. Nope. Sorry. Just couldn't hack it. And I'm so so sad I feel like this.
