The Interestings: A Novel - Meg Wolitzer I'm throwing in the towel on this one. I don't like the characters enough to want to follow them for 400 more pages. The teenage incarnations are too faux-intellectual and the adults weren't...interesting. I feel like this book is a strongly worded reply to that Jefferey Eugenides article about women not writing great literature -- and conveniently enough, Eugenides provides the cover blurb -- but the prose is just too wordy for my tastes.
