While I was reading this I wasn't sure what was going on so I think some readers will be turned away. I get the feeling that this book might end up having two extremes when it comes to readers. There will be those who love this book and those who don't and of course with me being an oddball I fall somewhere in the middle. I've never read anything like this but found the writing engaging enough that I was able to keep reading. I will admit that if it was longer I'm not so sure I would have finished it.
This book is strange. Actually it kind of reminds me a little of the episode of Supernatural when Dean first encounters a Djinn. After a night of drinking a girl wakes up and finds everything is different. She has a strange roomie. The people who work in the office are super strange and she's forced to go to a class she didn't sign up for. The class is strange. The teacher is strange. It is a history class which I guess ties into the title. I will admit that I wondered why the title was called this since the girl doesn't like history. Gradually you get to see what happened and what's going on. It was interesting enough for me to consider reading another book by this guy in case something else would gel with me better. I think this is a case of me not connecting with the format of the story while enjoying the writing if that makes any sense at all.
