Jamie and I read our first book of the summer! We read A Fraction of the Whole by Steve Toltz.
Favorite Quote(s): I had to pick two.
"...when you're a child, to stop you from following the crowd you're assaulted with the line 'If everyone jumped off a bridge, would you?' but when you're an adult and to be different is suddenly a crime, everyone seems to be saying, 'Hey. Everyone else is jumping off a bridge. Why aren't you?'"
"We ignorantly indulge in negative thoughts, unaware that thinking over
and over again 'I suck' is probably as carcinogenic as sucking down a
carton of unfiltered Camels."
Favorite Character: Leonard Potts
Meetways: East of Eden meets Choke
It is Steve Toltz only novel to date.
Three Words: Australian, dark, comedic
Next up: The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes
