Laura How are you liking this?


message 2: by Hayes (new)

Hayes I am and I'm not.

Cons: It's long. It has too many characters with similar names. It doesn't have footnotes to explain cultural/linguistic/social references. Too many stories intertwined, so I forget things that happened 300 pages earlier.

Pros: Cultural/linguistic/social aspects are fascinating. Story(ies) are great. Very well written.

There's just so damned much of it!


message 3: by Laura (new) - added it

Laura Do you like the writing?


message 4: by Hayes (new)

Hayes I do. It's very well written. Are you thinking of reading it? It has a lot going for it, it's just a difficult thing for me, personally. I will get to the end of it, eventually, and I will even enjoy it, but I almost wish I were reading this out loud to another person. Very poetic, and full of wonderful imagery... again just too much of it.

Laura Hmm. Ok,good to know. Yeah, I've thought about reading it for some time, but it's so long. I didn't know whether it was worth the time investment.
