Read from May 26 to November 17, 2011 — I own a copy

FINALLY. It only took me over six months. WHY IS IT SO LONG? Having ADD does not go well with reading this book. So much droll talk of feelings and Anna being a simpering female and not even putting out for me in the end. Although the time travel ending did drop a pretty sweet knowledge bomb on me. I like to think that I would have liked it more had I been able to concentrate on reading it continually instead of in little bits and pieces because I kept getting bored. I do recall liking it quite a bit at the beginning. I think as the whole thing became more Anna focused (which I should have been expecting, duh, her name is the title) I started to get less interested. I like other characters far better that became background to Anna LITERALLY having the same damn conversation with her self 8,356 times. I'm estimating roughly once every six pages, with each conversation with herself taking about four pages. I imagine she is a hideous character in the original.

So, six months later, I can say it was okay. Not magical. Maybe one day when I'm old I'll reread with continuity and see what happens.
