I had high hopes for this book based on Joyce Carol Oates' adult short stories. Two or Three Things falls seriously short. There were so many bizarre style and form choices that I wondered if the book was edited at all. There was no clear narrator. The shifts in point of view were distracting and not just limited to the three sections. Long and digressive parenthetical tangents were prevalent, distracting and seemed to have no purpose. The subject matter of eating disorders, insecurity, pressure to perform, self-harm, and suicide were touched on with sensitivity and relative authenticity. However, any character insight or resolution of these issues was completely overshadowed by the just plain wacky and annoying narrative voice. Seriously, I would like my money back.
