I thought that I would finish Middlesex faster, but I finished it on Monday. I am so glad I took another chance on this book. I really enjoyed it a great deal. It took me on a journey with carefully constructed characters and emotions. I felt really invested in Cal/Callie's story and I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. I am also just really interested in the"intersex" culture and how it effects the lives of the people involved. Even though the book is fictional, it is definitely realistic fiction, so I felt like I was really learning something. I will be getting Jeffrey Eugenides book The Virgin Suicides shortly, so I will have another chance to enjoy his characters soon enough.
I feel like I should have more to post tonight. I had a great weekend and we spent last night at my moms which was a ton of fun. We ended up playing some karaoke game and Guitar Hero on the Wii. We got video of my mom singing and it is truly priceless, but I am really going to have to work on her to get permission to show it :)
