    " This is the version with Hand's interlude. I'm really kind of super sad I didn't read the original, I might have liked it. I really want to like certain things about this book, some of the ideas and themes (even though Eggers hand is so fucking heavy with everything that it's a little insulting). Trying to describe the book I told someone "It's okay if you squint at it" which I think means that it's okay if you don't look at all of it and ignore parts of it. I really want to like this book, I really want to sympathize with a character that needs to run away when things get hard and with the feeling of needing to move, but I can't because the characters are poorly developed, and kind of dumb. This book makes me sigh. "
