really liked it
bookshelves: book-club, deep
Read from October 02 to 10, 2011

Book club selection for October. I'm a little intimidated by the length and it's reputation as sort of writerly (is it too crass to note that it's not the book I voted for?)


It's silly that I avoided getting started on this book, it was terrific. A page turner without being superficial. I loved all the damaged people bashing around trying to make sense of their lives. Very textured. And the multiple points of view were all engaging and interesting. I would definitely read other books by this author.

Nadine Jones Haha it's not the book I voted for either! I found the first chapter was particularly difficult - too many slang terms I didn't get. But it gets more interesting (though I'm still not racing to read it - most nights I don't get around to it).
