Read in January, 2009

my emotional development stopped at the "tell me a story" phase, and thats all i expect from a book. i dont need it to change my life, i dont need it to answer every one of my questions, i dont need it to teach me about any historical atrocity. this is not a perfect book, but it is a deeply entertaining book. its true that the characters are largely unlikable, but thats also true of wuthering heights and jude the obscure, two of my all time favorites. if its the idea of cloning that is upsetting the more delicately religious/political folks, just power through - pretend its like a unicorn in a fantasy novel or the spontaneous combustion in bleak house - it is something that is happening just to drive plot - it isnt reeeeealll - its genuine fun in the vein of liz jensen or when jonathan coe is being funny. do.
