it was ok
bookshelves: started-lost-interest
Read in May, 2009

Okay so I know what kind of love this is.
And after eighty pages I skipped to the end to read how everything finally fell apart. I am sorry I couldn't do you any better Mr. Richard Yates. But it is 2009 now and we have all sorts of other stuff besides the suburbs to be depressed about.

My housemate Sara started reading it and our conversation went like this:

Me: Sara, did you start reading this?
Sara: Yeah, do you mind? Are you finished?
Me: No, well, huh. Its just not a happy book.
Sara: Things don't get better?
Me: Things get much worse and then even worse. And then (I reveal ending)
Sara: Thats awful.

End of conversation.
