Ugh. Painful. Painful to say it was painful but it was about as bad as it could get. I‘m hoping the author‘s book of essays is better. The writing is trying really hard but just doesn‘t work (for me). I found some sentences taking 2-3 reads before figuring out what each was trying to say (editing issues?). Lackluster characters ugh just a bore fest. Sorry, hard hard pass. So here‘s a pic of a turtle crossing my yard a few days ago. Ugh.
