I absolutely hate this book. Its pretentious "deep meaning" and obvious symbolism grated on my nerves. Every single sentence was filled with so much pretension that I wanted to grate my teeth. I had to force myself to keep reading it. It could have used a little more subtlety, and a little less pompousness. But these specific problems aside, this book just annoys me in general. This is the only book I've ever read that I've had such a strong adverse reaction to - don't ask me why, but I hate it.
