Around for him it is almost frustrating because he has taken no ambitious action of his own to actually achieve it his luck simply turns around And then in the last few chapters he manages to just make the story ridiculously weird and creepy giving the entire novel and feel bad round upAnd it all started out so well Perhaps that was the overall point after all This was a ecent way to spend four and a half hours on a plane and I thought the beginning had a lot of promise The middle was a little too much of a bathtub story for was a little too much of a bathtub for my it was efinitely one Murphy s Law scenario after another for a v A Thing or Two About Curtis and Camilla is an interesting book at first However I became iscouraged to read it towards the middle and I can t ecide whether it was because it got boring or frustrating What frustrated me the most is how many misfortunes Curtis is able to bring onto himself just by avoiding responsibilities or being immature about so many things He trusted a friend who seemed like an idiot from the beginning and he Socialist Realism did not care to make up for all the things that went wrong in his life The whole book is about Curtiswelling on the unlucky or miserable things happening to him instead of oing something to fix his situation And this is what made me relate the book to a real life incident where one is listening to people complaining about their lives and not being able to tell them to pull themselves together and to get over themselves just because she wants to be polite The feeling is similar here where many a times I wanted
to tell Curtis to get over himself but I couldn t because tell Curtis to get over himself but I couldn t because is a character in a bookThe author s exhaustive escription about Curtis s life through the first person point of view Curtis s point of view is what made me feel this way The only thing that kept me on reading this book isn t the love story between Curtis and Camilla but knowing from my sister who has previously read this book that it has a happy ending So I was Doctor Extraño determined to find out how Curtis s life is going to flip aroundI personallyo not recommend this book because a good book to recommend would.
