it was ok

I hope I have been remembering the Goodreads version of the 5 star scale as I have rated previous books. 2 stars is "it was ok", which I feel sums up how I felt about it. It was mostly easy to read, but the subject matter was boring. Constant blathering about the lives of the rich and worthless. Almost like a good writer created their interpretation of a few episodes of the Kardashians.

This was, again, one of those times where I assume there is some deep underlying meaning that I am missing that is detracting from my enjoyment. Perhaps I need to read some academic summary to understand why this book made it to "classic" status, but for now I think I will be ok. Maricruz and I will likely watch the movie soon since we both read the book, so here's hoping I enjoy that a bit more!
