I'm trying to decide whether to keep trying to slog through this book over the course of months or to give up on it all together. I'm on about page 70. I tell myself I'll read at least 100-150 pages before I give up on it completely.
Reading this book is like being at a party where you're the only one not laughing at the inside jokes. I just don't get most of the references.
The book features a guy with a girlfriend who lets men dominate her for a living, a crazy old man who thinks he talks to oscillating fans, and a Russian mafia import-export guy named Groundhog. And while these characters seem interesting, digging out the meat from the crab leg of this book almost doesn't seem worthwhile.
