I took a long time to read Cigarettes. It was really slow going. I was able to follow the story (sort of) but I just didn't enjoy it very much. The book follows relationships between a group of people in the 1960s and basically, everything is very screwed up. No one is faithful to anyone else, they are all scheming behind each other's backs, and some people are into some very sick things.
I didn't enjoy this one. I am not really sure what point the author was trying to make. It was just lost on me.
