I mean, really? Come on. A bunch of blind people with no order and plenty of chaos probably do smell. I buy that. But explaining in excruciating detail just how bad they did smell and generate things that do smell was just a little too much. I really enjoyed the first part of this book but it dragged on and on and I was pretty disappointed by the ending.

Liz oh, man. I am also "currently reading" this book. too bad we aren't in a book club together. we could discuss.

Kristen hah! i was thinking about suggesting this for bookclub but thought maybe it was too much so soon after The Road...

Sara* I would totally do this for a bookclub book. And you won't get complaints from me about similarities to The Road... I really loved that one and wasn't at the bookclub where you guys discussed it. I am super pumped about the movie.
