"Oh, who cares."
Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff
"After getting bogged down in the section of the book about Lotto, who was really an uninteresting character, I almost gave up. But then, the last section of the book, about the Fury, Mathilde, really revved up my interest again. Overall, I did lik..." Read more of this review »

Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff
"I don't know what to think. The end redeemed itself, but very little. LOTS of 'Best Books' lists for this one. I will say it IS very well written. The alternate viewpoint format worked, but it was a strange story. The characters were unlike any ot..." Read more of this review »

This was my first Franzen. I loved the first chapter. Then I got bogged down. Then I saw where he was going and I couldn't put the last half down.

Let's get some things out of the way.

Listening to this on audiobook probably magnified the weakness - ie its a REAL SLOW STARTER and is too long. By the time the plot heated up, my mind had wandered so much in the early times that it was hard to get back involved.

St. Marks Is Dead by Ada Calhoun
Rate this book
Clear rating
Lots of individual stories about the first street I ever went to in NYC, and one that will forever have a soft spot in my heart. Much of the pre-punk history I didn't so much know about, and even some of the present day. I especially loved the map of ...more
