Read full description of the books:
For me, this book was two stories away from being downright terrible. One story, "Mon Plaisir," I thought was excellent. Another I found myself enjoying quite a bit. Others contained passages that made me grimace. Physically. Like, I wanted to turn my head away. Instead, I just dog-eared the pages that contained the shitty passages:
"My knees buckled, I went down to the floor. I cried in English, I cried in French, I cried in all the languages, because tears are the same all around the world. Esperanto."
"This pain, this dying, this is just normal. This is how life is."
I felt that the author was trying so very, very hard to make uniquely insightful statements that would make readers sit back and say, "Wow, genius!" It was all such an effort, and reading the book quickly became a laborious task because I was annoyed at the tone and at the lack of enthralling…well, anything. First off, a story doesn't HAVE to be about a just-out-of-school lesbian hooker to be interesting. A story also doesn't have to contain lurid **oooh, shocking!** sexual detail to be interesting and meaningful. One story was actually called "This Person" and is about as interesting as the title itself.
It's not the lack of a linear narrative or even the annoying, strained characters that I find most irritating about this book. I just think the writing more often than not is lazy and shitty; I think there's no real effort to paint imagery for the reader or to SHOW the reader anything with language. Everything is TOLD, lecture-style, rather than shown. Mainly I just don't want trite quips forced down my throat. I just want to read good writing.
Overall? Trite. Banal. Hackneyed. Blech.
