i got tired of people trying to push middlesex on me, so i gave in. i wish i hadn’t, reading this book was like work. i’ve been avoiding this book, i read most of jeffry eugenides’s virgin suicides, and didn’t really like his voice. i still find his style annoying. to me it’s unnecessarily wordy and horribly plotted. it should say something that despite not enjoying it, i still finished it. about halfway through the story got slightly better and i wanted to see how it turned out. unfortunately i found the ending to be anti climatic in every way. file this ony under: i’m glad other people like it, i just don’t get it.
