First thoughts...cult classic? Ugh I hate cult classics be they movies or books. Case in point, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, everyone I know loved it. Me? I found it stupid as hell and couldn't even sit through the whole thing. I do like books of Faery so I thought I'd give Tam Lin a try.

Janet Carter is off to college, freshman year, as an English major. This is a life-in-the-times story of her adventures with her roommates and dating college guys. I found this tedious and boring as hell. I made it to page 115 before giving up in disgust. It's written like a college textbook on English writers - Shakespeare, Keats, etc and filled with poetry. I was forced to endure this stuff in college but I won't spend my leisure time choking down more of it.
