I’ll pass I enjoy being able to wiggle my toes and jump around So thank you Lisa See For once in my life I am content with my big feet And I owe it all to your graphic descriptions of this ancient Chinese method Blood putrefaction pain breaki

MAKE ME CARE The plot didn't the characters didn't and so I couldn't get past about page 50 My mind kept drifting off and by the time I was conscious of reading again I wouldn't know what had happened so I had to reread it again and again up unto the fourth rereading of the same pages Exactly the same experience I had with Rushdie's Satanic Verses So I gave up I thought it was probably me and not the book so I downloaded the film Lord was it bad or what?
