She and I: A Fugue: 07/02/09
I received an unsolicited "edited galley" of She and I: A Fugue by Michael R. Brown. It claims to be a memoir of a man who evolves through his interactions with the women in his life. What that amounts to is a 280 page memoir about sex, ICQ and blogs, all written in short sentences ala Twitter.
His "observations" come off as shallow, self obsessed and childish. I got to page 120 only by skipping about every other page. There was nothing interesting to keep my attention. The short "poetic" sentences are annoying and offer nothing to the process of learning about the author or what meaningful lessons he might have gotten out of life so far.
