So So Read

I started Middlesex with great anticipation after having it recommended twice by friends. Additionally, it won the Pulitzer Prize in 2003 and was an Oprah Book in 2007 . . .

Yikes. It took me nearly 100 pages to find the groove - no pun intended. I simply can't describe this book without a pun crossing my mind . . .

Middlesex is an odd disjointed book. From Wikipedia:

The novel begins with the narrator, aged 41, deciding to tell the story of his recessive gene that caused him to be born Calliope and later to become Cal. The narration periodically returns to the "present day" Cal who is bearded, male and interested in women, foreshadowing the personal revelations of Calliope.

No pictures included in the novel.
