nobody should be forced to read shit they don't want to-- it kills the love of literature.
Nope. Its basically an eloquently written predecessor to the trash, throw-away romance novels of today.
But, while those have characters that some people get into, this book has characters so annoying and unrelatable that you can't help but hate them and not care what happens to them. Not to mention the annoying trait of saying every thought and feeling as if they were master poets, making everything unnecessarily long and drawn out, that all the characters seem to posess.

The plot is, at best, uninteresting and unsatisfying. Its artificially long, and imparts no lasting thoughts or emotions on me. Its basically a tale of immature assholes who try to use lost love as an excuse for you to pity them.
Bleh, shit.

Nothing currently. Just finished Frank Miller's Ronin in two days between funeral activities. Read The Black Corridor by Michael Moorcock before that. Time to pick something off the shelf.
