You know how sometimes you hear about this book for years and years being the impetus for an entire genre and some great masterwork? Then, during the intervening years of hearing about it and reading it, you read books of the same genre and love them and then finally get to that one book that birthed the others (metaphorically), and you just don't get it? I mean, you totally get that this one book is the reason for the ones you love to even exist, but now the first book is just too old and dated for you to really enjoy? And you kinda just want to get back to those good ol' modern ones that make sense and aren't a slog to get through and actually make SENSE?

Did I say that twice? Sorry.

Oh but Molly was cool. Yeah, she was highly over-sexualized, but she had lizard-glass eyes and cried through her mouth... so it kinda made up for it.
