Read full description of the books Everything Must Go (Mira):This is a book I read because I enjoyed the author's other books, and I didn't know anything more about it. She writes very well; however, this book went on and on and on and on and on (and repeat that for 500 pages). I found myself wanting to put it down because it was so soul crushingly boring, but I plowed through it, determined, because to put it down after suffering through even 10 pages would have just proven an utter waste of my time. The book description above notes that Henry is "impossibly stuck" - maybe he is (I don't remember), but so is the reader, and in a much more urgent way. It follows a boy, Henry, into manhood, through dysfunctional family, social and personal matters, but Ms. Flock was overly detailed (and that's being *extremely* kind). It was a frustrating read because, at the very end, it didn't mean anything. It gives random subtle nudges, but there was no point to any of it. I kept reading on because I thought that surely the point - the climax - would reveal itself shortly, but nothing ever happened. This book is one long, droning, excessive compilation of some guy's life, and nothing about him or his story is compelling enough to matter. It doesn't describe what Henry "might have been," or if it does, it's too late to give a rat's ass. The book hints at a "terrible moment," but honestly, even having read the book somewhat recently, I have absolutely no idea what that "terrible moment" was. Unremarkable, unimaginative, pointless and boring. I can't believe it got published. (And I absolutely love her other two books.) All those words and the result is a meaningless waste of time.
To put it simply: bloggers who write about what they had for breakfast and where they sat on the bus are a close parallel. (And possibly more interesting.)
