what do you LIKE about this book? I picked it up when everybody was talking about it, it finally made its way to the top of my TBR. by page 26 I was so disenchanted with the man's self-conscious prose style I started skimming. I'm around page 50 something and think I'll put it down for good. it's not in the least bit involving, just seems to be a wallow in ugliness. if it doesn't get any better when I try it again tonight, I'm done with the guy.
