it was ok
bookshelves: adult-fiction
Read in May, 2009

I know everyone loves it and it won the Pulitzer and yadda yadda yadda but, god, what a depressing book. I get that it was supposed to be the ordinary lives of these ordinary people, but it was story after story of heartbreaking sadness. Good things happen to people too--there could have been something good! The writing is lovely but I just couldn't wait to be done with this one. Maybe the next book I read won't make me want to die.
