Aug 15, 2012

Read from August 15 to 17, 2012

** spoiler alert ** August 15: I'm only on page 8 of Book, and already I want to toss it across Room so it will hit Wall.

August 16: I'm now on page 101. Hmmm. The narrative voice is still annoying. I wonder so many things, but I'll only list some of them:
1. Why does Jack say that he came from Heaven and his Ma's tummy, and yet Jesus came from Mary's vagina? Granted, Jesus is pretty special, but still.
2. Why does stuff bake in Stove's tummy?
3. Why does food not "heat" on the Stove? It hots. ???
4. I feel horrible that Jack and Ma have Twilight and The DaVinci Code in their library. Wow, that Old Nick really is a sadistic jerk.
5. Although, if that's the case, then why is Alice in Wonderland in the collection? Now, there's a great book!

Obviously, I'm still reading; there are enough good reviews out there that have convinced me to keep going.

August 17: Finished. Good bye, Book.

I have no idea how to rate this. Maybe I'll decide after a few days. Maybe not.
