MAKE ME CARE The plot didn't the characters didn't and so I couldn't get past about page 50 My mind kept drifting off and by the time I was conscious of reading again I wouldn't know what had happened so I had to reread it again and again up unto the fourth rereading of the same pages Exactly the same experience I had with Rushdie's Satanic Verses So I gave up I thought it was probably me and not the book so I downloaded the film Lord was it bad or what? Exactly the same experience it wasn't any interesting It's an experience I'm not going to have with the Satanic Verses though I doubt there's a director still alive brave enough to make a film of that book
