it was ok
bookshelves: fiction

This book took me an absolute eternity to finish. I found it rather dull, and didn't really identify with or care much for the characters. I kept paging through hoping it would get better and while I think it did, a little, it certainly did not live up to its hype for me. It's too bad because the premise and structure of the novel (a book about a writer, who writes books that are somewhat autobiographically-based) could have been amazing.
