I tried. I loved THE SECRET HISTORY and I actually enjoy watching stage productions. I used to go all the time in college because one of my friends was an ex-theater major. But for some reason, THE SECRET HISTORY and Shakespeare just didn't work. I think it was... okay, it was like a pretentious book for boring people. When I was in college, there was this guy who was a philosophy major and he was really hot and we got along well, but he was SO full of himself and everything he said was like listening to someone say stupid things in a smart way and that's what this book was like. It made me want to slap my head with a folio.
I'm happy for those of you who liked it but I thought this was boring.
