did not like it
bookshelves: literature, pulitzer-winners
Read from June 08 to 12, 2012

This book was simply "not my cup of tea." I failed to find anything about it that I liked. I didn't like the story. I didn't like the writing. I could find nothing redeeming about it and simply made myself finish it only because it won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for fiction (although I am not sure how). I had hoped that if I trudged my way to the end - painful as it was - that I would uncover some nugget of literary brilliance that would help me understand how it received such accolades, but alas, even as I read the final lines of the book, all I could think was "Really?"
