Not the best book club choice!

Advantages: Some interesting sections
Disadvantages: Difficult to read in places, too much introspection

January's choice I have recently joined a Book Club, and this was the choice for January 2013. It is a (sort of) memoir by the author Jeanette Winterson, who is a novelist and wrote Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit, which was published back in 1985 ...

Alex's constant cock hunt continues

Advantages: Easy to read, great if you are gay, I'd imagine, I didn't have to pay for it.
Disadvantages: No plot - does Alex ever find his 'true love' I wonder?
