it was ok
Read in February, 2012

I was between 2 and 3 stars on this one, and I was going to bump it up to 3 because the writing - that is, the sentence to sentence writing - is quite beautiful, really. But all of those sentences put together became a slog of a story that starred a sad sack narrator who wasn't just kind of lame, but also kind of creepy. Whenever I feel this way about a book, my first inclination is to assume that I wasn't reading it smartly enough or that I missed something in the text, so if that's the case, someone let me know. In the meantime, I'm glad I don't have to read about any of these characters any more, because they were really starting to get on my nerves.
