Things went very smoothly for me when it came to reading the first book. This was at my very sparse library, it was short, and it was easy to read. I was so caught up in my success however that I forgot to ask myself: is this enjoyable?
The short answer is not really. I mean it was pretty choppy and for someone who dislikes both poetry and vignettes, I could not get into it. It is worth a read but when I look back at this book I only look at it with indifference.
