I enjoyed the way the "forces of love" were very clearly demonstrated and how the results of the different loves were very clear and easy to understand. Bloom didn't try to obscure meaning to make the reader think too hard, which is both numbing and entertaining. I'm trying to come up with positive things to say about this book, but I didn't like it that much.
