    Geek Love by Katherine Dunn - anyone read this? I'm a few chapters in but it's such a strange text, I really like it so far but it is very weird. Hadn't heard of it until recently...so, anyone?

    This book is on my to-read list. I've read some really good reviews about it, but also heard it's quite a difficult text to get into. Have you found it engaging so far?

    I just saw your response, and I literally just finished this! Well, I had to read it quite quickly as I have to study it and do a presentation on it later this week. However, often even if I HAVE to read a text I will find ways around it if I'm not interested. I started reading this Saturday morning and finished it just now, it really hooked me. Geek Love is...a strange text but very very touching, I ended up loving it. Its quite a difficult text to get your head around and there are so many complex ideas within it. (I'm dreading having to do this presentation, there's so much and so little I can think of to say about it!) I would definitely recommend it though.
