Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge Book Club: The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

One of the dangers of this challenge is that sometimes you pick a book that you end up not really liking and you have no one to blame by yourself. And perhaps the book. This was one of those books.

While I enjoy the premise of the Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test and think it started off strong it mostly felt long. Very very long. As in I enjoyed the first hundred pages and then spent the rest of the time thinking we get why do I still have to read this. If I didn’t have to finish it for a challenge it would be the type of book that I would put down after a hundred pages and think about reading without ever going forward any further so I guess it’s good that I read it for a challenge. That or I would have been less concerned about page length and more in tune with just enjoying the book.

As far as substance goes I found the plot a bit weak. For large sections it felt like nothing much was happening or that the same things kept happening over and over again. Maybe this is why the book felt so long (other than the fact that it was long).
