This is a very negative "story" if that's what it could or would be called. I didn't want to finish it but I thought just maybe there would be a ray of light at the end of the horrendous tunnel. NO They style of writing was ok, northing to write home about. The story was horrible.

I decided to read this because it sounded interesting and I had seen it on a couple must-read lists. I ended up taking about twice as long to read it as it should because I found it so horribly boring that I couldn't get myself to actually pick it up to finish it. If you are looking for an enjoyable way to pass time, I would suggest watching paint dry, watching grass grow or just counting how many people on the street have their shirts tucked in over reading this book. The stories are bland and pointless.

The only objection I have is that is doesn't have the different sections identified in the "context"
