Rated PG

There are so many up and down reviews of this book. Apparently, if you don't love it, you hate it.

I, at least, found it, if not highly entertaining, the cause for thought - regardless of whether or not I agreed with the character's ideas.
When I read, my goal is to let my mind take a break. Maybe not even a break, but just wander down a different path for a while. And though this book certainly didn't stretch my mental capacity, it did make me think. And often, regardless of the literary quality or story's profoundness or lack there of - if what you're reading takes you a place you weren't before... then it worked, didn't it?
