Are you guys for real?

Um, are you guys for real? I was so excited to start reading this book. I have been on a roll with good books lately ("Running with Scissors" - though some don't agree - , "My Sister's Keeper," "Lovely Bones," and "Memoirs of a Geisha" - which, by the way, I loved.) So when all three of you raved about this book, I picked it up right away and it anxiously awaited me on the bookshelf for the last month and a half. So I started reading. And reading. And I slowly started to wonder what it would be like if I got the plague, and if my life would be better because then at least I'd be too weak and feverish to have to keep reading this God awful book. Maybe 1666 isn't my year. Maybe I'm just not in the right headspace, as dad suggested. Whatever it is, you guys are a whole lotta' crazy - this is like torture! I'm actually forcing myself (Amanda, you can relate) to finish this book so I can finally rid it from my life.
Ok, I'm being dramatic. But seriously, this book has not spoken to me on any level. I'm on the quest for the next great book to give me something to look forward to...but don't give me any suggestions, people - your suggestions lead me to this! (just kidding).
Anyway, I'll let you know when I finish it. Supposedly the ending may be worth this suffering...I sure hope so.

Um, yes, I was totally for real. This book rocks. And please remember. She doesn't scoop her poop on a picnic table. 'Nough said. (-; Kidding!
