This was so much less than I was hoping for. For a book to be praised the way this one was, I hoped for a lot more than the usual mopey rich white Jewish boy on drugs in the suburbs shit that every other 'slacker' novel has as an antihero.
In fact, this was such a letdown, it deserves a whole new tag: dissapointing, for all the books that come with so much hype that I feel cheated by the blurbs and reviewers.
This is a log of what books I've been reading and movies I've been watching. Comments are welcome!
One explanation seems necessary - the phrase "Life-Changing Fiction" is not in any way an endorsement of those books- in fact, I think those books are Awful, and want that to be clear. "Life-Changing Fiction", as a phrase, has been trademarked, absurdly, by the "Christian fiction" writer Karen Kingsbury, and that is Just Not Right. Aside from being ridiculous, it just sheds light on the hypocrisy of the writer. What would Jesus copyright?
