Inspired indifference

This was almost like a book, just without the interesting bits. Some good stuff, give it a shot if you want. Not for me I guess. Sorry!

What you expect from Brautigan

The story gives you a view of plain, vague of characters perspectives to life! As simple as it is. Everything pass away and they just accept it and go on, there is no grudge or rebuke! It looks to me that they just understand what they can understand and accept what they can’t understand.

Watermelon Sugar

In watermelon sugar we hear watermelon sugar read a watermelon sugar number of watermelon sugar times. its basically like smurfs, but watermelon sugar. This can't be anything other than a conscious effort by the author who really wants to make us think the phrase watermelon sugar each and every time we see or hear "that is my name". Additionally with the way that this book is written I have to assume that the bland voice performance is part of the whole set up of what the author is trying to accomplish in watermelon sugar. tl;dr: watermelon sugar is bland and not sweet.

loved the narrator. the book lacked

The book seemed to lack some details to the story line. the whole book I wondered what was going on. to the point where my mind would wander off. Maybe a better read than listen.
