really liked it
bookshelves: favorites, reread, non-linear
Recommended to Morgan by: one of my supervisors
Read in December, 2012

I borrowed this from my roommate's bookcase while she was in Puerto Rico and read it in the overstuffed leather chair that smelled absolutely foul in the living room of my first apartment over the first two weeks of winter session Junior year of college (preposition much?). I am convinced there is not much of a better way to spend two weeks in January, or to read this book, and though I desperately want to re-read it, I know it just won't feel the same. That first read was such a moment in my life.


Just as good the second time around (I actually had moments where I couldn't stop laughing on the subway, particularly at the "Où sont les Neigedens de l'anton?" line). Oddly enough, I remembered basically everything that happened (more or less), but in a different order!
