Oh no, Yoko Ono,
This review is from: In the City of Shy Hunters (Paperback)
Before I started reading, I should have known that the premise of someone leaving rural America and going to New York would take me down a clichè-ridden path. Yes, the main character is naive to the point of being one dimensional and is basically bossed around by everyone. It is quite a painful read for anyone who has already gone through this phase in his/her life and has learned to tell people to shut up.
The supposed "hip" people in New York are shallow and exaggerated who place importance on attitude. There really is no friendship or affection among the characters.
The novel is like being dragged to a boring party, gagged and having pretty people tell you how stupid you are.
This was really a disappointment, because I really and truly enjoyed "The Man Who Fell in Love with the Moon."
