Dept. of Speculation

You’ll love this book if you have a short attention span and care about “girl meets boy/girl marries boy/couple has child/boy has affair/couple figure things out” type of stories. The flimsiness of the prose, just hunks of text with lots of spaces, no real thinking required, makes it an A+ candidate for today’s distracted readers. I finished the 180 pages in a few hours, but it felt more like binge-watching a reality show than any kind of intellectual stimulation.
