    One thought on “Negative Space”

    1. In the past month, I've found myself sitting next to people reading erotic/semi-pornographic material on the subway more than once -- probably about 3 times. Each time is as awkward as the last. Sitting next to someone reading something explicit would be a total non-issue if not for the fact that I'm a bit nosey (especially about what people read on the train). Catching sight of a drawing of a naked woman or a couple of phrases describing a graphic sex act on an ordinary train ride is plain unco [...]

    2. The writing was beautiful but I don't think I was quite in the right mood. After awhile I felt like I was hanging out with a very literate friend who couldn't stop rehashing a breakup I did like it overall but I might have to revisit it later.

    3. I picked the book randomly as I was exploring the library; didn't like the writing or the style. boring from the start till the end. I wonder if it's any better in the original language (was it written in german?). I liked the plot idea and some of the material/scenes, but he failed to make it engaging and got super repetitive.

    4. I don't mind a little angst and self-pity, but this novella was self-indulgent to a fault. I read over half of it and could not, would not go on. I usually like this type of erotic sadness I can enjoy over a nice scone and latte, but good lord, reign it in Steiner!
