Tellulah Darling

Tellulah Darling writes YA & New Adult romantic comedy because her first kiss sucked and she's compensating.

Sassy girls. Swoony boys. What could go wrong?

Oh vey! Such a headache already!

Bleeding Edge - Thomas Pynchon

Huh. I thought Bleeding Edge was going to be a slick investigative thriller into virtual reality, terrorism and NYC in the days leading up to 9/11. Which it kind of was except for the fact that it just went on forever. So many twists and turns and new connections that by the end I had a headache and just wanted it all to end.

I liked the protagonist, Maxine, especially that she was Jewish. Hadn't realized how much I missed hearing Yiddish. :)  In fact, a lot of my favourite aspects of this story were the parts when we were hanging out with her, just being in her life. I think this book needed a substantial edit, because it got seriously self-indulgent for me.
