Megan (megoizzy) | 40 comments I'll be honest, I'm having some trouble getting through this book. It's wordiness combined with the somewhat depressing situation of the main character aren't really great, especially after we just finished last month's depressser of the year. Hehe. I am going to finish, but it is taking me a long time to get through the relatively short chapters. I feel like it's the kind of book that just... doesn't translate well... no matter how good a translator you've got doing it. Time period and culture/language make the book particularly hard to understand for me as the reader.
