Disquiet (Julia Leigh)

I don't think I'm smart enough for this book. It was weird and creepy and I just didn't get it.

Maybe I'm thinking too much about what the novel has to say and not enough about the novel as a form. The length is short and the lanuage is *amazing*. It's just that I need some sort of plot or story to make a book feel like a book. This seemed more like an exercise in creative writing class than a novella I wanted to read. 

But lots of other folks seem to really love it, so maybe I really don't get.
