I browsed through a couple of pages while killing time in an airport once, and I've read extracts online and my only thought every time I read it is just how bland it is. Like there is nothing interesting going on. The writing style, the characters, the plot, the endless references... I watched some of the movie but switched to something else for the same reason. Boring, dull, bland, bleh. The only good thing that came from the book, as far as I care, is 372 Pages We'll Never Get Back.
