The Year of Living Dangeourously

I just finished reading "The Year of Living Dangerously" by Christopher Koch and I have to say, I didn't love it. In fact, I've been dragging my arse since before Christmas. I loved the character of Billy but it was a bit of a tepid story all in all. I mean, Jill gets pregnant and decides to have an abortion in Singapore - Hamilton, upon nearly losing her (and the baby), realises that he loves her. For pete's sake, is Koch saying that if Jill wasn't pregnant, Hamilton would not have been concerned?? It just seemed a little contrived to me.

sometimes it can take extreme events to realise your true feelings. for instance, it was not until the toilet paper at my place of employment was changed from soft 3 ply to scratchy single ply that i realised how sensitive my anus is and how it should be provided with only the highest quality toilet paper.

Your dissolute good looks are only outweighed by your natural charm.
