I am not much of a reader (a bad thing, considering that I am writing a novel of my own), but I am trying to change that.

I just finished a book that a former classmate of mine recommended to me, due to its subject matter which is similar to my own story. The book is Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, which deals with intersexuality, Greek-American culture, and 20th Century America in a very brilliant way. Normally writing a novel about just one of these topics is hard enough, yet Eugenides managed to weave all of them into a coherent, intriguing story.

Please read my review of the book, which I posted on Epinions.com.
