it was ok
Read from May 21 to June 05, 2011

I found it rather boring save for a handful of quotes that stood out.

'Thousands upon thousands of millions of minute and diverse individuals had come together and the product of their mutual dependence, their mutual hostility had been a human life. Their total colony, their living hive had been a man. The hive was dead but in the lingering warmth, many of the component individuals still faintly lived'.

'Dying, He was quickening their life'.

'Don't envelop me in love like this, don't force love on me. If you knew how dreadful love seems to somebody who doesn't love, what a violation, what an outrage --'

'He was thinking of death in the form of a new life growing and growing in his belly, like an embryo in a womb. The one thing fresh and active in his old body, the one thing exuberantly and increasingly alive was death'.
