Almost gave up. I almost gave up on a book, which I don't like doing because maybe it gets better! Or maybe I'll learn how not to write if I keep reading!
But it turned into a slog, reading Her Fearful Symmetry
by Audrey Niffenegger. To the point that for the most part, I disconnected from the emotions of the work. They're there, other readers can probably extract them and experience them, as I did with some
(few) of them, but -- it's supposed to be an emotional work, and I just didn't care. Big revelations got a sigh followed by an "Oh, OK." Maybe an eye-roll.( Collapse )
