I really want to read it.
Unfortunately for me though, my exboyfriend pretty much plagiarizes it whenever he writes anything and reading it will only make me think of how much I hate him and how worthless he is.

But I really want to read it.

I've heard of the book, and I've read the Wiki-article, and I really, really want to read it - unconventional storytelling and structure are some of the things that hook me on a book.

*goes off to find it*
The Continued Misadventures of Bonebird - a poor bird's quest for the ever-elusive and delicious apples.

I have a friend that swears by this book and can't stop talking about it… The themes of the book don't really interest me though.

You know, after checking the net, I think my friend just did a really bad job of explaining what it was all about. I got the impression it was about something way different than it is…. So off that now I feel too embarrassed and dumb to mention tell you what I originally thought were the themes.

The book sounds more interesting now. People are saying it takes a lot from David Foster Wallace, who just so happens to be my favorite author. Good influences can't hurt. :D
I may buy this if I ever get through Carole Maso's “Ava”.
