  • Twenty Years at Hull House

    Does anyone else find this book to be EXTREMELY poorly written and structured? There is a paragraph in there that goes on for four pages, and has no names, but refers to about 7 different people by pronouns alone.

    Jane Addams, did great things, but this book blows.

    Also, I started banging my head against the wall after reading about 170 pages of it on little sleep and full day of work. So maybe I am just tired, but I am frustrated. (I am bashing a Classic, so odds are I am wrong)

    I've recently had a similar experience with The Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison. The writing isn't poor but the book beats around the bush too much. I get the general metaphor, but the details were simply lost on me.

    Things are going much better with American Psycho.
    On my mind: How can I shut up the singing English graduate student? How many more lossess will KU's basketball team have than its football team? How will the Rams front office screw up this year?

      Stop reading it, Sluey.

      I'd think a guy from that school would know a good remedy.
      When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

          Yeah. That'll get your arena built.
