Journal Entry 1 by FamFatale from Chantilly, Virginia USA on Wednesday, November 24, 2004

6 out of 10

An unusual and sometimes irritating novel about a man's pursuit of a woman, his lack of understanding, and her lack of communication. While I liked the interpretation of the letters, I found much of the egocentricity of the narrator slowed the story unnecessarily.

Got this one out of tnkbl's diminishing returns bookbox. I've heard good things both about this author and about this book, so I'm glad I came across it. Thanks!

I didn't know what to expect from this book, and was pleasantly surprised. I agree that the narrator's egocentric ways did tend to slow the story down, though I did like how the author managed to present events through his perspective in a way that showed his view of things while also making clear what was really going on. This seems like a book in which very little is going on, since the story does develop very gradually and may strike some as a book in which nothing really happens for a very long time, but that was a nice change of pace for me and I ended up enjoying it more than I thought I would. It reminded me of some of the classic literature I read in college that was much more character driven than plot driven, although as I said, he's not the easiest character to have driving the story forward. In the end this was another great example of BC exposing me to an enjoyable book that I might not have otherwise read. Thanks famfatale!
