Solibo Magnificent - Patrick Chamoiseau, Rose-Myriam Rejouis, Val Vinokurov Disliked the writing style. Every sentence is filled with extraneous information. The writing is disjointed and confusing, stuffed with words that must be found either in the glossaries at the end of the book or translation notes in tiny text at the bottom of the pages.

Every time I pick up this book I think, now I will understand, I must have been tired last time I tried to read it. But every time the same thing happens. I don't understand what the heck is being said and think: jeez, get to the point! Figuring out what is being said seems just not worth the effort.

Quitting after 85 pages and three days of really trying.
