The Evolution of Bruno Littlemore - Benjamin Hale I dug the frog scene, and I don't give a damn about likability--I was all ready to settle in with Bruno. But the energy/inventiveness of the concepts & plot > my engagement with the prose. Gave it the hundred pages but never got out of my funk, so. . . I will be an anomalous non-fan, but I look forward to more of Hale's stuff.
