Honestly wanted to like this. Wanted to like it so much that I even got it via inter-library loan at the library, something which I am usually loathe to do; nothing against the library, but I am truly terrible at returning books.
Sadly, I didn't. I couldn't get into the setting, the writing style, or the characters. Gave up around page 100.
People would probably enjoy it if they were into the era and a bit of the absurd; as it was, it was just hard for me to take seriously.
