I am sometimes dismayed by how often it seems I am abandoning books. Oh well. I have a large to be read stack and the library lets me have them for only so long.

In 6 days I got only 73 pages into this book. I was not drawn to pick it up at all. It takes meandering turns to tell slightly amusing stories or witty observations, but it takes so many and they aren't all that funny, that the story has no chance to build a head of steam.
