Casebook - Mona Simpson I'm going to be upfront, I didn't finish Casebook. I have read some good reviews for the book and was looking forward to reading it. Unfortunately, I think I am in the minority when it comes to this book. The book I read wasn't the book I thought I was getting. I got about a third of the way through and gave up.

There are a few reasons that this book just didn't work for me. I didn't really like the way it was written. I know that for some people, it will work but I just couldn't get into the flow of the book. It was like Miles was just randomly telling us about things that happened to him after his parents split up. It felt very disjointed and I never got a handle on time frames for any of it. There also seemed to be a jumble of characters and I couldn't keep everyone straight. Finally, there were weird footnotes that were supposed to be from his friend Hector. I found those weird and I didn't get the point. So, I'll just chalk this on up to being not a good fit for me. Check out what others are saying ( Maybe you will "get it".
