    When Reality is Seemingly Condensed into 597 Pages

      Sitting in the Stacks Rating: 3.5 (this requires an explanation) My explanation behind giving this book a 3.5 instead of a 4 deals with the cynical view of life the book gave me for a period of time. Although I was riveted to the storyline and would stay up until 2am reading, every page was also a punch in the gut. Adultery, death, self-deprecation, rape, lies, depression, death, etc, this book has it all and constantly reminds you shit can and does happen in life.
