So Much For That; Lionel Shriver

So Much for That So Much for That by Lionel Shriver
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This "searing, ruthlessly honest new novel" (per the back jacket) is more polemic than novel, and very timely in terms of the health care debate. The characters seem to exist as vehicles for extended lectures on the health care crisis, asbestos, subsidized housing and other topics, rather than in their own right. Unfortunately, this meant that I didn't actually care about them, or their issues.
