did not like it
bookshelves: couldntfinishreading
Read in July, 2007

I tried so hard to give this book a chance. The first few chapters, I was all "pretty cool, I see how the footnotes and images and references to books/journals etc. really fit and give you an insight into who this gal is" and then before halfway I couldn't take it anymore. I found it tedious, pretentious and a bore. The story got reaaaaaalllly slow at that time too--stuck in the trials of trying to fit into the little "club" at the teacher's house. Someday, I may try and see if it can redeem itself. But right now, frankly, I have no idea why it is on the all time best list.
