Middlesex: A Novel (Oprah's Book Club) by Jeffrey Eugenides

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, Aug. 30 2007
I wasn't sure if I would like this book initially. A friend had recommended Middlesex to me a couple of years ago and I had made a mental note but other books kept bumping this one down the list. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and characters. The story spans 3 generations and ultimately captures most of the major themes of life. Our protagonist Callie/Cal is immediately interesting to the reader as she narates her family history whilst foreshadowing her interesting and somewhat tragic gender identity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, April 2 2007
I got turned onto B&S rather by accident and picked up this album as my second purchase after 2006's "The Life Pursuit". This is one of those albums that seems to have been placed into a moment in time. It is clear and distinct compared to almost anything else of the 1990s. Every song is unique and the lyrics are catchy and quirky. Stuart M's voice drips across flawless melodies. Definitely in my top 10 albums of all time.

XG is horrible. I have a copy of 2002 and it works quite well. I would recommend sticking with it.
