If you can work your way through the first 10 pages, you're in for a confounding treat.

So this is one of those books that book people know the title of and feel at some point they should read. I chose this one because it was small and I knew I didn't have a lot of time to finish a book that week. This was a lot tougher to read than I was looking for. Maybe I'm not cerebral enough, but books that I have a hard time understanding the metaphors, or just the plot in general are just not for me. I got through it, but barely. Hard to understand, hard to follow. I did end up googling it and was happy to see I knew more of what was going on than I thought. Not sure that's a plus though.
