Dorothy (plantwoman) | 160 comments Did you like "Middlesex?" It's been on my "to get" list for a while. I've read so many glowing reviews of it...

I did like it, actually. It was very long, in the way that you look at a book and say, "I know if I pick this up I'll be reading it forever, and I don't know if I have the strength for that." The story isn't exactly slow, just long. But it's good overall.
