XX. "The Crimson Petal and the White" - Michel Faber
As if the blanket-statements of 19th century London aren't mundane enough, the author further annoys with a combination of second person narrative and omniscience. You, you, you - I made a deal that I'd try for the 20th page, but 17 seemed enough. You can't stand this book and immediately take it to the window and drop-kick it into the snow.
