I must say that the only main reason I purchased and read this book is that James Franco is the author.  Let us take a moment to review this reason…




Thank you, google images.


Anyways, the book was interesting.  A mesh of a bunch of different story lines, not so much intertwined but… yeah.  Honestly there were times I had no idea what was going on in the book.  And there were some parts I found a little dry, or just not that interesting.  But that’s okay, because anytime I zoned out while reading those parts, I just pictured this:


Which is honestly much, much sexier than what I am usually thinking about when I zone out while reading.

I appreciated and enjoyed this book for art’s sake.  It made me think of a friend I had in high school, who would often have conversations with me where I had no idea what he was talking about, but I knew that’s because he was so intelligent that I was unable to keep up.  I think that’s what happened here.  Or at least that’s what I’ll tell myself – that Franco’s artistic vision was just way above my comprehension level.  Luckily for me, I have no problems comprehending his aesthetic.

Carry on!

My endless stream of musings and rambling thoughts stem from my loquacious tendencies and intrinsic need to communicate with members of society. Mostly this blog is a place for me to talk about my passions - teaching, reading, cooking, my family, my lover - and is a tool for me to work on being more introspective.
