You should give The Bone Clocks another shot - the narrative shifts perspective between several different characters, to the thing that put you off is not a constant.

commented on The Children of Mass Transit: Seattle Has Lots of Growing to Do
To be fair the transit planners did a shit job in selecting these trains, which have no overhead storage, no luggage racks, and very little clearance between or under seats for anything, let alone luggage. And these are trains intended to serve the airport. Ridiculous. It's not this woman's fault there is nowhere else to put luggage on the way to or from the airport.

commented on Beacon Hill Greenbelt Proposal Pits Social Justice Cyclists Against Environmentalists
@18: The volunteers are probably good hearted people. But there is no guarantee that the trail users will be, based on my experience with cyclists in this city. Regardless of the inherent goodness or lack thereof of the volunteers and trail users, transforming a green space into a recreational space is what I am against. It already has a use: green space. Turning it into a bike track is not compatible with that use. At all. And why turn a green space which is beneficial to the entire city into a single purpose use for a handful of mountain bikers? That's hardly reasonable or equitable. Our few remaining fragments of urban nature don't need to be exploited just so a few people can get their kicks tearing the hillside into a muddy rut.
