Almost three years ago I wrote on GR about this book:
The fact that the reviews are so very different in content, attitude, the lot surely has something to do with the book.
But I simply couldn’t think of anything good to say. I’ve discovered, however, that I have company, I’m not the only person in the world who has an aversion for this book. Discovering that has given me the strength to move on without feeling like it must be my fault or that I should be feeling guilty. As much as I loved Museum of Innocence, I dislike this.
There, I’ve said it. And do go to the reviews referenced above to read erudite discussions of this book.
