Book Review: The History of Love
"Marvelous." - The San Francisco Chronicle
"Astonishing." - Washington Post
"Ingenious." - New York Times
"Ehhhhhh..." - a page from her book
I'm not even done with this one yet, but I need to get this off my chest. I expected more. This is an odd book, and while I like some of the characters, I keep getting lost in the stories and having to re-read sections. I feel like it's a really pretentious book, and I feel like I'm not getting it, and I feel like I should get it, and I don't like any of those feelings very much. But, I'm seeing it through to the end. I want to see how it all comes together.
