    " this one surprised me...that I would be able to get into fiction and not deconstruct it in some way is very rare for me... I am lost in this book and I have yet to finish it because there is so much meaning in the story for me... I know not everyone would jive with Berg's writing, but for someone reason this book I 'get'. ...update: re-reading again...losing myself in the feelings it brings up. "
