it was ok
bookshelves: 2008
Read in November, 2008

While I appreciated the humor angled at academic life, in particular English professors and the writing workshop, I finished feeling cheated. I started out turning pages to find out which way the plot would veer next - I ended up turning pages to get it over with and start something new. I didn't mind the stereotyped characters that other reviewers have complained about as much as the "Court TV" ending. National Book Award finalist? For shame.
