The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. - Adelle Waldman This book had potential. So much potential. Unfortunately, I got lost in looking up all the $5 words the author used in order to convey her point. I get annoyed when authors use a lot of overly fancy words to say what they want to say. I get that the main character was kind of a pretentious douche and maybe that's what the $5 words were for but it was quite a turn off. I also really didn't like the ending or the main character so I'm probably not one of the better people to talk to about this book.
