Insufferable. I tried, because this was for our book club meeting, but i just couldn't hack it. On page 122 I called it quits. The first thing that turned me off is the contrived format of the book. The story starts right on the front cover, continues on the inside cover, and keeps going like that. No room for the copyright, edition, etc, which are relegated to the very back of the book. There were other "cute" details, like photographs, cutout silhouettes, pages purposely left blank, and so on. But i tried to keep an open mind. Unfortunately, the narrative was excruciatingly slow, the characters were inexplicable, there were too many loose ends. Pages and pages were devoted to booking a plane ticket. This book was going nowhere, but i was going in a downward spiral towards despair. I was right: the photographs and silhouettes were nothing but crutches to support a huge flop.

Started this one today but after looking over the journal entries I must admit I am a bit leery and fear that I may have an adverse reaction to it as well. Also, I am pretty sure that I have read another book by this author that I couldn't get through. I will have to go back and check to see but if this is the same author who wrote "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" which I absolutely HATED I don't hold out a lot of hope that I can stick with it. I am a little annoyed by it already and I am only on page 6. *sigh* I will keep trying.

I tried. This one was written by the same author as "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" and I just don't care for his writing style. It's very juvenile, lots of grammatical errors and just really uninteresting. blah. Not for me.

The thing I liked best about this book was the format. It wasn't a bad book - not my style is all.

"Caught" in the mail today as a surprise piggyback RABCK! Thank you! Not on my Wishlist, but for some reason the author seems to be vaguely familiar, and at a glance it appears to be something that might be kinda right up my alley. Or not, we will see...

2002 McSweenys hardcover stated First Edition. Peculiar format of the book was already well-described above.
