I had a very similar opinion. I say many are divided between love and hate because, being a Canadian book, it was trumpeted to the highest hall and many were driven to read it based on that. I think the book was a lot different that most people were expecting and weren't able to get into it or missed the point and ended up hating it.
A simple souvenir of someone's kill
And like the sea
I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
oh, how I'm breaking down
