January 2009: A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius
"A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" by Dave Eggers
Jen: Far far from genius.
Holly: We survived.
Becca: Only ten minutes of fun, hours of agony.
Kasey: It's like being in the mind of a manic depressive.
Amanda: How did this f$c*i^g book end up as a f$c*i^g Pulitzer Prize finalist?
Shannon: Ho-hum. Stop the yammering already.
Aday: When one tries too hard to become a heartbreaking work of staggering genius, you end up with this book.
Jerilyn: I'm glad I didn't read it.
Chari: I found the book to be exhausting and thought Eggers was full of himself. I can't believe I actually finished it as much as I disliked his all over the map writing style.
