Elliot Allagash - Simon Rich I gave up on this one. I've never liked to do this to books, but there are just too many that I want to read at the moment to persist with ones that do nothing but infuriate me. I got up to page 73, can't stand the characters - especially Elliot - and I'm not enjoying the story at all, so I've had enough. After reading the reviews on here it seems a lot of people had a similar experience even after finishing it, so I really don't want to keep reading now. The quotes on the cover are very misleading - from the small part I read, it wasn't funny, brilliant or ingenious.
