I'm not loving this book like I think I'm supposed to. The friend who gifted it to me months ago told me he gave me 50/50 odds of liking it, and I was hoping I would err on the positive side. I don't want to disappoint him, and I don't want to disappoint myself for finally getting around to read this thing decades after its first printing and not finding it to be the bee's knees or even its ankles. But I fear it's going to be like so many things that everyone else loves: I just don't get why.
