I saw a description of it. (it's by Jennifer Egan) and it sounded interesting...but not enough to buy it and know I will like it.

Has anyone read it and can you give me some feedback?

Thanks!

I read the first chapter and posted it. It had too much bad language for me (the f-word like every dozen words or so). I know that doesn't bother a lot of people but I personally can't stand it. Too bad b/c the book had an interesting premise.

hmmm thanks for the info. I'm not sure I would like it then either. I don't really mind the bad language but I question authors that don't have a large enough vocab to find other words that work just as well...I'll just wait till I get some more credits and find it on here if I'm still interested when the time comes. =)
