Well, I just don't know. The concept of this book was really interesting. and I think it must be very difficult to come up with a new way to present a story, but David Leviathan did just that. This book can easily be read in a few hours - and afterwards, you will probably feel proud of yourself for reading a novel that has been widely reviewed and touted as one of the best books of the year. I'm proud anyway. There is no real story. At least, not in a sequential logical way. Levithan uses a dictionary approach, where he covers many words from A to Z, and muses about his relationship with his girlfriend. Parts of the book were intriguing. It was as if you were privy to someone's thoughts - and I enjoyed that aspect. I must say, though, that I like more of a story - and definitely more of an ending! so what happened to their relationship????????????
