Satanic Verses

I do believe that is the first time you've called me by anything other than "Momo" in quite a long time. Really, I can't even remember the last time you called me by Anne. Weird.

Speaking of weird, Satanic Verses is batshit insane. I mean, we all know I'm a little bit too far along on the crazy side myself, but some of those sections I had to read at least three times. Though to be fair, I actually enjoyed the book. Arielle - I agree - Mahound is a little slow, but when it comes back later on in the book, it is crazy hilarious. And I think I probably should have paid more attention in my Sunday school classes (...which weren't really on Sunday. They were after-school. Off-topic.), rather than working on getting myself kicked out. There were way too many moments in that book where I knew that he was probably alluding to something from the Bible that I didn't know. So that was a bit of a struggle. May end up re-reading this book post a greater understanding of the Bible.

All in all, not a bad choice. I'm better for having read it. It's a little lengthy at times, but its never so boring/hard to read that it is unbearable. Now I must remember to continue reading Catch-22. Also, someone pick the next book already so that I can beat you guys to finishing that too...
