I have broken a record with this one.
This is the first time EVER in the history of MY LIFE that I read four pages of a book that:
- Was hailed as number 53 on the readers list and 63 on the boards list as one of the top 100 books of the century.
- I put on hold at the library.
- Drove to said library and picked up.
- Read reviews about it and said, oh great, this is a Dystopia book just like “1984″ and “Brave New World” and I LOVE Dystopia books!
After reading 4 said pages I abandoned the book.
The only way I can describe the book is that it’s like a Dr. Suess book but for adults, you know how Dr. Suess writes; he makes up a lot of words and names for fictional things in his books, but to Dr’s Suess’s credit the names are cute and they rhyme.
I don’t get how this book landed on the top 100 list! I understand the geniousness (is that a word?) of inventing a slang but COME ON!
Anyway, if you have read the book , tell me , did you like it? Because honestly I wanted to punch it in the face.
There is a movie version of the book so I am going to watch that because I would like to pretend that I am “a learned person”.
I just HOPE it’s in plain English because honestly, life is too short for this kind of stuff.
