Fathima Cader three stars?! but why?

Miriam the footnotes made him cranky -- apparently he had footnote fatigue. i know, i know.

message 3: by E (new) - rated it 3 stars

E it's true, and i felt like he was trying too hard to be funny in them. aside from that though, i would have liked for it to focus more on oscar himself because i felt like the narration didn't do the character justice.

i don't know, i originally gave it four stars but when when i read in the time of the butterflies i went back and bumped this and some other ratings down a bit because i enjoyed it just that much.
