did not like it
Read in May, 2009

This book is not funny. Several reviews said it was funny, witty, brilliant. It is not funny. Not chuckle funny. Not tongue in cheek funny. Not hysterical funny.

It is clever, but not in a funny way.

Maybe I didn't like it because of the historical context that Gregor lives through. I didn't *hate* it, but I did have to force myself to finish it in the hopes that I'd find the humor or figure out what was going over my head.
