I loved it Jen, but it's kind of obtuse for many ... I'm really curious to see what you think. I enjoy your opinions on books!

Middlesex ~
Callie, a Greek -American , born a girl, and at the age of 14 finds out she is a hermaphrodite . That's the best way to describe this book, but it is so much more .
Its wildly original and beautifully written with vivid and unique characters .I loved this book and think that anyone who loves the art of storytelling should pick up Middlesex ! Its one of those books that you want to finish, but don't want the story to end .

I was looking forward to your review of this book. A lot of people really liked it. I wanted to like it but I tried reading it twice and could not get into it, not sure why.
