    Wow, this book sounds real bad...a ton of random stuff stuck together isn't even a book!

    I am glad that you are not "afraid" to type what you think! You already have expanded my library, so I am glad this one doesn't make it... hmm I guess what I'm saying is, I'm glad to know you don't like everything.

    While sipping coffee,

    Oh my! I'm tempted to get it from the library just to see for myself... Sounds scary.

    This sounds like so much of today's modern "art." I fail to see how random thoughts, or blots of paint, or letters can be truly called art. Literature, poetry, paintings, plays... all were created to communicate a message to the viewers. Things like this book succeed only in confusing people.

    Lola: Be warned, it's really not worth even that. The "horrible book" vibes might send you running from the library, anyway.
    Kylandra: I completely agree. Unfortunately, this was a book I was required to read for a college class I once had. My professor and I got into a bit of a disagreement because I refused to call it a novel. Even calling it a book is a stretch. Just because it has covers and a binding does not make it a book.

    Dagda: thank you for appreciating this! Sometimes it's necessary to write negative reviews, even though I mostly try to be constructive and uplifting of the authors and books I feature here. However, I also think it is important to remind everyone here that I do, in fact, have genuine opinions about books, and I don't just write "WOW this is so good!" articles for everything.

    Oh go on, you know you loved it just a lil bit :P

    I'll be sure'n to stay clear of this one, thanks for the heads up.
