Is there a shelf for a book I have to stop reading because I can't stand something about it? In this case, that the writer is a machine that swallows magazines whole and spews out a topic of the month.

message 6: by Howard (new)

Howard According to the critic, the novel suggests that there are way too many characters to figure out. I agree since in the beginning of the book, there are 5 or 6 characters and at the same time the point of view keep changing from one character to the other. But i would add that the author did a good job on describing each characters inside feelings. It might be a bit confused when reading the feelings of different characters, but in the end it would all make sense.
