Shit, me too. I dropped the secret agent just when I was about to finish it.
Also, It can happen here. Just the first chapter is good. Since the guy has congessmen arrested that parhetic mess of classism in book form collapses into itself

I couldn't stand the gay narrator and his embarrassingly beta thirst for the love interest. So cringe. If you're going to lay that much beta on me there needs to be more objectivity and distance.

Only book I dropped last year. Couldn't get past the first 50 pages. Dharma Bums is much better.
