Book Review of Middlesex

Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
Genre: Literature & Fiction
Book Type: Paperback

Helpful Score: 2

This book begins as a fascinating read and slowly but surely degrades. It has too much plot, too many little sub-stories that are beside the point. The detail is revealing and fascinating at first, but becomes redundant and boring. The author veers away from the main character too much, which is too bad, because s/he is really the person the reader is interested in.

I managed to muddle my way through it, but I don't recommend it!
