A slow culmination of ridiculous, beautiful, and ugly. Ugly? Yes ugly.
Drank too much coffee; reading too many books.
I keep expecting the characters from the other books to join in the plot of the new books at some point. It’s starting to affect the I view the books.
On a somewhat related note: I don’t know how University students are english majors (especially Victorian era English majors!) especially when you have a job. This class I am in goes over 14 books. 14! Granted they are all usually less than 400 pages (ah, that is still so much). Where would you find the time to read, comprehend, prepare an essay, write it, and then do other school work (probably read 14 million other novels), work, and be sane.
That shit is crazy.
Also, I just found out the class-selected novel to cap off the modern era is going to be ‘Everything is Illuminated.’ I am really disappointed, but will still read it. Man, it is going to be hard to take this book seriously when all I will be thinking of is that post on the comparison between Foer and Frazen. (okay, snob moment over with, but just always springs to mind.)
