really liked it
bookshelves: 2008

I'm not sure how I feel about this versus As I Lay Dying... and of course, I haven't finished the other book. I liked this, but it's definitely writing about a time and a place that bears minimal resemblance to my life, and there is a sense in which that holds me back from really loving this one. Joe Christmas, though. Now there's an anti-hero.
