I hated this book. I bought it because the cover was so pretty (yes I do that) and the author had won a nobel literature prize or something and thought it'd be good.
It wasn't. I don't really remember why I hated it so much but it felt like a waste of time, completely useless to me. I was really aggravated by the end of it.
A couple years ago my best friend was browsing my shelves and asked me to borrow it and I said "sure, but I hated it, don't think you'll enjoy it" (she has similar tastes to mine). 3 months later she finally gave it back saying "why did you let me do this?"
At least I'm not alone in this.
